5 reasons why Shopify is the best option for you;

  1. Hosting

    Shopify host your store on their servers which are built for speed and high volumes of traffic. This also means you don’t have to worry about doing any database or plugin upgrades (like on WordPress) as Shopify takes care of all this in the background.

  2. Security

    Shopify provides a secure environment for you to grow your online store and is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant. This is the highest security certification for online stores. This compliance applies to your store automatically so you don’t have to worry about storing your customers data.

  3. Easy to Manage

    What our clients tend to love most is that it is super easy for them to manage their store after launch. Its intuitive admin area helps you to enjoy running your store with no coding required.

  4. Mobile Ready

    More and more online shopping is done on mobile devices. Because of this, it’s vital your online store looks just as awesome on a smart phone or tablet as it does on a desktop. All Shopify plans include a free, built-in mobile commerce shopping cart. This means your customers can browse and buy from your store while on the go, using any mobile device!

  5. Shopify POS

    If you have a retail store you can unify your in-store and online inventory with Shopify’s Point of Sale system. From payments to products, you’ll only need to set things up once. Updates are then synced across locations and devices instantly. The best part is that Shopify POS is included with all Shopify plans!
