In a sentence, what is Shopify?
Shopify is a complete, all-in-one eCommerce solution. Once you sign up for an account with Shopify, it allows you to:
- Build your online store all by yourself.
- Pick a design that suits your needs.
- Pick a unique name and domain for your store.
- Add your products and their details (price, description, etc.).
- Process orders from your customers.
- Handle online payments through solutions like PayPal and others.
- Run special promotions, discounts, and sales.
- You don’t need to know a single line of web code – Shopify walks you through the entire process.
- Shopify lets you add your own domain name (e.g. www.my-store.com), hosts the store for you and maintains the complicated ‘back end’.
- Designing your store is easy, you can choose from 100 existing themes and tweak them to your liking.
- Shopify processes, manages and tracks all your orders and payments, letting you focus on the business.
