Shopify vs. Salesforce Commerce Cloud

Only one platform is the leader in conversion

If you’re not selling on a platform dedicated to commerce, you’re getting second best. Switch to Shopify Plus for non-stop innovation, up to 36% higher conversion, and a commerce partner for life.

There’s a reason brands are leaving Salesforce Commerce Cloud. What’s keeping you?

#1 commerce platform

Commerce-first, brand-obsessed

Your best brand starts with a fully invested commerce partner that puts relationships before contracts. Unlike other platforms, Shopify is 100% invested in making commerce products that solve your challenges today and accelerate your growth going forward. It’s time to put your business first. We do.

Endless innovation

Move out of maintenance to growth with Shopify Plus, the only company obsessed with redefining the ways we shop, sell, and do business.

Product development

Take advantage of a strong track record that boasts over 100 product releases twice a year, with a clear roadmap for the future.

Powerhouse agility

Always be innovating

Innovation starts with migration

Current platform roadmap a dead end? Stop going nowhere and move forward with Shopify Plus, the only company as obsessed with your growth as you. We put commerce—and you—first with every product.

A roadmap that’s going places

Buyer trends change as fast as the tech that powers them. The only way to keep your business competitive is with a platform that puts their money behind their product. That means a strong, clear roadmap with ongoing product releases and iteration.

No other commerce company matches Shopify’s rate of development, and we’re not done yet.

What people are asking

Salesforce Commerce Cloud licensing is priced according to the anticipated gross merchandise value (GMV) of the client. If your business exceeds those expectations, you must pay additional licensing. If you fall short of those expectations, you must still pay for the unused balance.

Other costs include implementation and ongoing maintenance. Total cost for the solution will range widely depending on the size and complexity of your business and its commerce requirements.
