Reducing total cost of ownership

Put your money where your brand is

Slash unnecessary development costs from your budget forever. With Shopify Plus, you can make changes fast with a small, nimble team in a matter of minutes.

Say goodbye to…

  • Hidden costs of hosting, upgrades, maintenance, and security patches
  • Last-minute stress of performance and load testing
  • Custom development needs that leads to technical debt
  • Outsourcing simple changes you can do yourself

I told my company, “Look, here’s what we’re spending. Here’s what we could be saving with Shopify Plus. Think of the monthly bill and also the man-hour bill, the frustration.”

Increasing conversion and retention

Customize, convert, repeat

Unlock a suite of conversion tools with Shopify Payments and Shop Pay. And personalize the customer journey from first sale to tenth with built-in automation tools, ready to go.

  • 644M online shoppers using the world’s best converting checkout out of the gate
  • 60% faster checkout and 18% higher conversion with Shop Pay
  • 20% higher average order volume with custom promotions through Shopify Scripts
  • 56% higher conversion and average order value and 27% lower abandoned carts with Shop Pay Installments

Shopify’s native checkout function and cart has made it a lot easier to convert people. There's a reason why it’s an industry leader.
