Pros of using Shopify:

– Quickly Start and Launch a Store
– Thousands of FREE Apps to help you sell and run your store – Inexpensive if using free apps but can get expensive if you use a lot of paid apps.
– Low Learning Curve
– No Need for a Merchant Account
– No Need for a Shipping Carrier Account
– Easy to Add Apps, Change Themes and Update
– Easily Add other Sales Channels (ie: Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
– Easily Add a Buy Now Button onto an EXTERNAL website.

(You can add a product button called BUY NOW to a website that is not hosted with Shopify but would process the checkout through Shopify Cons of using Shopify:

– There is a 3 option limit for products. Example: If you sell t-shirts and have Size, Color, Material (you can add all kinds of variants to these options like small, medium, large, etc.) but Shopify has a 100 variant limit for these so you would need an app to extend the OPTIONS to get you past the 3 options threshold and the 100 variant threshold.
– You use Shopify Payments, otherwise, if you use your own merchant account, then they add additional fee to your monthly plan plus you will pay a percentage to Shopify in addition to your existing Merchant Account and Gateway Fees.
– If you add another Shipping Carrier (Shopify’s built-in carrier is USPS) if you add: FEDEX, UPS or other carrier there is an additional monthly fee approx $20 per month as of today’s date but this is cheaper than upgrading to the next plan on Shopify.
– No direct access to the Shopify database without an app via Api
– No direct backup mechanism without an app. You can export the products, customers and orders within Shopify but that is it. You would need an app to extend this functionality.
