The best part about using Shopify is that it is a managed and hosted platform. Any functionality that you want to use is already available in the Shopify platform itself or the Shopify app store.
Alike the functionality, same thing applies for the layout and looks as well. When you want to change the layout of your eCommerce site, it is really easy. You get abundant free and premium themes that'll easily grab user attention as well as showcase your products really well.
Another good thing about using Shopify for your eCommerce portal is that your business can easily change the layout and color schemes without having to re-enter the products.
This is a really useful feature because down the line when you need to update your site to match up with the current web design standards, you don't have to worry about exporting products, setting up a new theme and then importing products again.
But more than anything, Shopify Support team is really responsive to help whenever you get into any problem or face any query. And as the platform is always trying and experimenting with something new, you can rest assured that your shop is always up to the mark and your online retail business is always ready to generate revenue for you - without having to worry about the security concerns and without facing the technical hassles.
Shopify allows you to do your business & takes care of all the other hassles without bothering you a bit. All the resources at the tip of your hands. That is worth a lot.
Shopify app store is another really great addition of this platform. Not that other platforms don't have it but the variety and abundance of apps available in the Shopify app store beats the market. For any type of functionality that you'd want to add to your site, you can find it in the app store.
If you are on a monthly subscription plan, you will still need to pay your subscription even when your business doesn't generate a penny for you. But that's the business model of Shopify. After all, they provide you with all the resources without giving you any hassle, it is worth paying for.
