Summary of Shopify User Reviews
What Shopify does well:
Users who recommended Shopify said that they find the software’s backend very efficient in running their online stores. They also said that it is easy to familiarize yourself with the app and that the learning curve is not steep.
What Shopify does not do well:
Users who gave Shopify negative reviews said that using the app is not ideal if you want to extensively customize the look of your online store. They also said that the subscription pricing options are more expensive than others.
Most Helpful Positive User Review:
“Easy to use backend to manage products, stocks, inventory, and collections. There are also lots of theme options to customize online stores. The third party apps for Shopify helps to scale the store with new integrations and possibilities to sell the products from the platform to other online stores and in social media as well. The overall learning curve to use Shopify is not steep at all.”

Most Helpful Negative User Review:
“While Shopify is incredibly easy to use to start a basic shop, that’s all I’ve found it to do. If you need any difficult changes made and don’t know HTML, you’re out of luck. It’s not like a drag-and-drop software (like Wix) and I think Shopify could really use some improvements here to make it easier to make custom website.”
– Michelle Zoporojets
Shopify has three subscription options: $29/month for the Basic Shopify plan, $79/month for the Shopify plan, and $299/month for the Advanced Shopify plan. The main differences between the plans are the number of staff accounts and access to premium features such as fraud analysis, sales reports, abandoned cart recovery, and gift cards.
