Over one million small business owners from 175 countries trust Shopify to help them sell their products and services online and in person. So what exactly is Shopify? Shopify is a world-class commerce platform that has everything you need to start, sell, market and manage your business.
This includes selling through your own fully customizable website, social media, and online marketplaces like Amazon, but also through retail experiences like farmers’ markets, pop-up shops, and permanent storefronts. There are many key features that make Shopify the best platform to build your business on.
They include premade store templates that help you customize the look and feel of your store without having to know how to code, built-in payment processing to accept credit cards and other forms of payment, free and paid apps from the Shopify app store to expand the functionality of your store, growth opportunities with Shopify sales channels, and built-in marketing features and a dedicated support team available 24/7 to answer your questions.
As you build your business, whether you’re a budding jewelry designer and want to start selling your products, or an established business owner who’s ready to start selling online, Shopify can help you. We’re with you from first sale to full scale.
Shopify has five different pricing plans for businesses to choose from. Shopify Lite is $9/month, Basic Shopify is $29/month, Shopify is $79/month, Advanced Shopify is $299/month, and Shopify Plus starts at $2,000/month.
You can sell a range of products and services on Shopify, including but not limited to: physical products, digital products (e.g., ebooks or email templates), memberships (e.g. subscription boxes, online yoga studio memberships), ticketed experiences, classes and lessons, and more. Take a few minutes to read our official terms of service to be certain that what you plan to sell is legal where you live.
To begin selling online with Shopify, you’ll need to add products to your Shopify account, and set up a payment processor. Then, you can choose where you want to sell your products—whether it's by building an online store or selling on social media. To get people to buy from you, you’ll need to market your store so shoppers can visit your site and learn about your brand and products.
With Shopify, you can sell everywhere your customers are. That means your own website; in person, like your retail store or a tradeshow event; on marketplaces like Amazon and Ebay; on social media channels like Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram; wholesale; and via Handshake.
