What is Shopify?
Shopify is a complete, fully hosted, eCommerce
solution that enables you to set up an online
store to sell your products. It assists you to
organize your products, customize your

and respond to orders all with a few clicks of
the mouse. The key being that it is fully
hosted! No more stressful hosting management,
backups, security risks, cpanel knowledge, etc.
This is built with the business owner in mind

How Does Shopify Work?
Basically, Shopify takes the hard work out of
setting up an eCommerce store, leaving the vendor
free to focus on what they know best Their
business, their products, selling their products
and customer service. Not only does Shopify
provide eCommerce solutions for online stores,
but they also provide POS (point of sale) systems
for real world offline stores, as well. Its a
business that is constantly evolving and
introducing new thoughts and state-of-the-art
solutions to the world of commerce. Shopify
facilitates the vendor to set up a storefront
hosted on their servers using any one of many
free and premium themes. There are over 100 to
choose from, and new designs are added all the
time. You can organize your products, customize
your shop front and receive credit card and
PayPal payments all within the Shopify platform.

Its kind of like having a store on eBay or
Amazon, only better and simpler. The store is
custom designed to your specifications and
liking. Its your piece of the eCommerce real
estate, without the worry of installing software,
maintaining that software or running any web
servers. Thats all taken care of by Shopify. You
can even make use of your very own domain
name. Depending on the payment gateway you use,
Shopify can be utilized in virtually every
country, receiving payments in most currencies.
Your storefront (and everything associated with
it) can be in any language you like. The admin
side of things is in English, though.

Why Should I Use Shopify Over Other Cart Options?
Shopify is a fully hosted ECommerce solution This
means that everything is fully hosted for you,
all monthly updates, security control, and
backups. Everything you would normally have to do
when purchasing hosting and managing your store
is all taken care of! You just run the business
side of things. State of the art

compliant and uses 128-bit SSL encryption to make
sure credit card data is secure. Experience Shopi

Pros Of Shopify
3) Shopify has an active and helpful community
that is always there to answer questions and lend
support, together with Shopifys official Support
Centre.
2) They provide eCommerce platforms for online
selling and POS software for offline sales. The
perfect, symphonic partnership especially if you
have an offline store that also sells online.
1) No design skills or real programming are
essential to set up a nice looking Shopify
storefront. If you would rather someone else set
it up for you, then there are people who will do
it for a nominal fee.
6) The Shopify Manual comprises everything you
need to know to set up your online store and run
it successfully. The manual is chock full of
guides and tutorials to help you every step of
the way.
5) The ease of use of the platform and its
flexibility are what set Shopify apart from other
eCommerce platforms. Plus, theres no headache of
running and maintaining your own full-blown
website. Shopify handles all the technical stuff
for you.
4) Being able to accept most currencies and have
a storefront in virtually any language is also a
huge plus.

Reporting Analytics
In the dashboard for your storefront, you will
come across many statistics and charts and graphs
reporting sales, orders, traffic, where your
visitors come from and much more. Custom
reports can be generated and exported for your
files. There is also much data to analyze to see
whats working and what needs to be changed.
Google Analytics also works in association with
your online store.

Shopify App Store
  • There is an app store as part of the Shopify
    network of resources. The apps serve as plug-ins
    for your eCommerce store, additionally
    simplifying store setup and functionality. Many
    of the apps are free, and some are sold for
    prices ranging from just a few dollars up to over
    100. Creating apps for the Shopify platform is
    also another way for those with development
    skills to earn some extra cash. There are apps
    for all sorts of things, which includes the
    following
  • Sales
  • Social media
  • Shipping
  • Marketing
  • Inventory
  • Accounting
  • Reporting so much more.

Shopify Partner Network
As a Shopify partner or affiliate, you can earn
20 monthly revenue share for referring new
customers to the Shopify platform. Build an
eCommerce theme and earn up to 70 for each sale
you make in the Shopify Theme Store. Create an
app and sell it for up to an 80 commission in
the Shopify App Store. So, not only is Shopify
a great place to host an eCommerce store, there
are some other ways to earn money with Shopify,
whether you host a store with them or not. For
most of us, the easiest way to earn that extra
cash is to refer new customers to Shopify for
that 20 cut.
11
Support
The support center is open 24/7 and offers email,
phone, and live chat support. In my experience
and the know-how of many others the support
service is fast, professional and always very
helpful and polite. If you like, you can even
search for answers to problems yourself by typing
a question into the knowledge base.
12
How Much It Cost?

    out and take a look. After that, you will have to
    sign up for a plan if you wish to continue.

Conclusion
Shopify is a great platform that saves time,
frustration and money. If you are looking to set
up and open an eCommerce store, then I would
recommend checking out their FREE 14-day trial.
Shopify can also be pretty profitable as an
affiliate, as well, with top earners making more
than 6000/month in commissions. Sounds like a
win-win to me.
