Shopify is a premium content management system (CMS) that specializes in ecommerce. If the primary goal of your website is to sell products, I will likely recommend Shopify for you. That’s because there are many additional digital services are required to run an online store versus a more basic, static website. An ecommerce site needs a functioning checkout, shipping & delivery, inventory system, order fulfillment and more.
Shopify offers all of the backend solutions to help you run your online store from presentation to fulfillment. I specialize in custom Shopify development. I not only setup Shopify stores, but I also customize them to fit your store’s specific needs.
