Our current website was never meant to function as an online shop but with the pandemic we started adding as many items as we could to supplement sales. I would like to develop that side of the business more.From a request we received this year
How is Shopify better than BigCommerce, Magento, or other ecommerce software?
Since Magento is self-hosted, you’re responsible for hosting costs, server speed, and security. It can also be hard to make changes to your site without having an internal development team. Shopify is more affordable and modern than Magento. Get the rundown of differences between Shopify and Magento here. With BigCommerce, you are missing out on some Shopify features like the many sales channels and integrations, the POS software, and a more flexible store editor.

How is Shopify better than WordPress, Squarespace, or other site builders?
If your website is hosted on a platform that wasn’t originally meant for ecommerce, you may find that keeping it updated is more work than you’d like. On an ecommerce platform that isn’t ideal, you may be struggling with back end apps, doing too much work manually, or not being able to present your products in the way you want. Your site may be glitchy or buggy, and need to be completely rebuilt with modern technology. We’ve had clients whose site has crashed every time they’ve released new products. You don’t have to live like this! You can start a free trial of Shopify here. Then, if it looks like the solution for you, let’s get together and make sure it’s done right.
How is Shopify better than Etsy or Amazon?
On a marketplace, you’ll find your success is often dependent on their marketing or algorithm, and they’re sending your customers to your competitors. You’ll have to share your profits with the marketplace, and the branding is all theirs, without much room to establish your own brand. You may not be able to have an email list or really keep in touch with your customers.
Many shop owners come to us saying that they’re outgrowing Etsy and want more control over their own brand and shop. Shopify has an Etsy migration app that helps you get started, and we can take care of all of the rest.
