Every Shopify plan has the same core features, covering every basic function you need to set up and run your ecommerce business. Here’s what you’ll get when you choose Shopify
A fully hosted online store
Shopify is a fully hosted store where you can upload and start selling your products. You’ll also be able to create landing pages and blog articles to keep your customers informed and updated. Hosting is with every Shopify plan. You won’t have to worry about keeping your store secure; this is taken care of.
The look and feel of your Shopify store can be customised with numerous templates and Shopify theme options available from the theme store.
Shopify point of sale (POS)
All Shopify merchants can access Shopify POS, their powerful point of sale app. This can be used to make sales in person, for example, if you have a brick-and-mortar store or attend events or markets.
This makes selling online and offline seamless and convenient, and removes the need to manually update stock inventories or input accounting information from multiple places. You only need hardware such as a card machine to accept the payment.
Easy payment processing
All merchants can use Shopify Payments or choose from over 100 payment gateways if they want to use a third-party payment processor. With any of the payment gateways, you can accept all major payment methods in over 100 currencies.
Whether you make sales from your online store or use multichannel marketing such as social media shops, as a Shopify merchant, you will use Shopify Checkout, which gives you a fast, efficient and, most importantly, secure checkout process.
Shopify back-office tools
Shopify provides various back office tools that allow you to keep your ecommerce business running and make it super easy to manage everything from one centralised dashboard.
Shopify’s back-office tools include:
- Support: 24/7 customer support
- Analytics and reports: Allowing you to gain insights into how your store is performing and find ways to optimise your business.
- Mobile app: Manage your business from anywhere in the world easily from your phone.
- Shopify App Store: The Shopify App Store offers a host of free and premium apps which you can add to your basic store to give you even features and functions.
