Answers to the questions EMEA replatformers asked most
Depending on the size of the business and how much data there is to migrate, it can be a relatively simple process. The Shopify Plus teams have a lot of experience in supporting brands that are migrating from third party platforms to Shopify; the teams are able to help you assess what can or should be migrated, how complex integrations might be or what can be replaced by native Plus functionality. The teams are also happy to recommend Shopify Plus accredited agencies if you wanted an expert team to carry out the migration on your behalf.
You have the flexibility to take a third party or do it with your own team. There are a lot of guides about how to migrate to Shopify as well as what you can use to help, such as CSV files or apps like Matrixify. You can also hire an agency or developer to carry out the migration for you.
There are some third parties where an integration may already exist, such as Dynamics 365 Business Central. You can check for further integrations on the Shopify app store. If an app does not exist, then it's most likely that an integration can be built using an API. Shopify has an open API source so as long as the third party has a model that supports this, a connection can be made.
No, you can use any payment method you want, none of it, part of it, or a mixture of Shopify Payments and any other payment method you're already using.
The main costs to take into account are the platform cost and transaction fees. Any additional costs could be incurred if you enable third party apps or work with an agency / developer to carry out a migration for you.
This is a bit of a 'how long is a piece of string question'. A migration can take place between 30 and 90 days or longer depending on the scope of the project. Lots of factors can come into play such as the amount of SKUs, variants, complex integrations, themes / design etc.
Yes! B2B features on Plus have been improved a lot in the last 8 months and continue to be developed. The features are laid out here and are included within the price of the Plus plan. This supports businesses to manage both their B2C and B2B customer bases from one administration and one site.
Shopify Plus has great features to support international selling. The expansion store feature allows you to create multiple storefronts for the same brand that can be localised to different regions and countries. Customers will get a better localised experience where you can cater to language, currency, shipping, taxes, promotions, discounts, payment gateways at the checkout etc.
Checkout extensibility is a faster, better performing, more secure, and upgrade-safe option than checkout.liquid for checkout customizations. Checkout extensibility also works seamlessly with Shop Pay. By upgrading to checkout extensibility, you can take advantage of several new features and capabilities, including the following:
Checkout extensibility lets you create checkout customizations that are built into apps. These apps are fast to install and upgrade-safe. To add to this, checkout extensibility is continuously evolving to meet your needs through new or improved features, alongside new apps.
To use Checkout extensibility, you need to be a store on the Shopify Plus plan. Currently, checkout extensibility can't be used if you use Global-e, but is planned to be available in Q3. You also can't use any features that are incompatible with checkout extensibility, such as the following features:
- Advanced Cash on Delivery
- In Flight API Mutations
- Unsupported Hosted Payment SDK Gateways
Shopify Plus pricing is $2,000 per month (charged in your local currency) or, once a business is generating $800,000 in monthly transactional revenue via their Shopify channels, the fee switches to a variable rate of 0.25% of sales via Shopify. Transaction fees depend on the country that your business is based in and whether Shopify Payments is available in your region. More information
Hosting is included with all Shopify plans including the Plus plan. You do not need to pay to make changes to your Shopify Plus website; the only time charges may be levied is if you need to enable a third party app or if you need developer / agency input to amend any areas of your website.
