Shopify (UPDATED FREQUENTLY) 2018
By Zach Zitney, co-Founder of Ships-A-Lot
Ease of use
Zach offers the ease of use as his number one reason why people should use Shopify. If a vendor starts putting together a store and runs into nothing but complications then trouble will ensue for that client being long-term committed. Another option for ease of use would be buyers purchasing from the Shopify platform which is also very easy to accomplish on their platform. Thus from vendor to buyer Shopify makes your buying experience a breeze.
By Michael Jordan (Director of Advertising)
Ease of use
Michael also suggests that the first reason local businesses should use Shopify for their storefront activity boils down to ease of use. If something is easy to use both by visitor and vendor it is more likely to receive long-term support from everyone involved. Having had my own experience with various platforms, I personally would put my vote in for ease of use as I found it much less complicated than other available e-commerce store-front options.

Support is available 24 by 7
A product is only as good as the support it provides. In the case of Shopify that support is available 24 by 7. However, have you ever tried to get support only to be unable to understand the person on the other end of the line or their responses being flat out unusable? I have and its no fun. With Shopify, you can experience high-class support from people that really know the product. I know, I have. Sometimes the hold time to speak to a rep can be a bit longer which is why they also offer web support opportunities.
“Shopify was made for eCommerce” – Nicole
Nicole’s right and I don’t believe it gets much clearer than that. Why attempt to use a tool that wasn’t designed for what you want to do from the very beginning? When you run into trouble on other platforms Shopify is already offering answers and solutions on theirs. The backbone of the entire Shopify experience is e-commerce and that means you can trust that they will have the latest greatest platforms for you to work with. Should you find something lacking updates will likely bring it up-to-speed sooner than later.
“Big brands are using Shopify”
If a product is being used by big brands you can trust that the local business owner will be able to succeed on the platform also. The nice thing is that though big brands do use Shopify the expense of someone just getting started on the platform is not astronomical.

In the age of mobility, I’m really surprised that this is the only person who pointed to accessibility as being their own first reason why local businesses should use Shopify.
