Shopify stores: Why we use Shopify for all our ecommerce sites... and you should, too

We love using Shopify as our sole ecommerce solution. It's simply the best ecommerce shopping platform available. Whether you're a high-volume online store looking for an enterprise platform, or a small to medium-sized business, Shopify is perfect.

So what makes Shopify the best solution for ecommerce? 

Intuitive and easy to use

The Shopify admin panel is easy to navigate, and makes creating products, processing orders and generating and understanding reports very easy. It’s intuitive and simple to navigate, so even if you don’t see yourself as much of a ‘techy’ person, you’ll soon get up to speed.

Secure and reliable

With Shopify there’s no need to worry about site security or managing updates. The platform is constantly improving, and regular Shopify updates and Security Fixes automatically happen in the background. Leaving you to focus on your products and customers.

Keeps track of everything in one place

Shopify makes it easy to run a business, offering POS (point of sale) systems as well as an online store, so whether you make a sale in store or online, everything can be managed in Shopify. It keeps track of your inventory, so if an item sells in your brick-and-mortar store Shopify will remove that product from your online store.

Professional design

Shopify offers a range of templates and themes to choose from, making design straightforward and giving you a stylish shop window off the peg. It’s easy to edit, with a simple visual interface, so you don’t have to be a designer or a coding genius to make your store look great.

Mobile ready

All Shopify templates are fully responsive - meaning they look as good on a mobile phone or tablet as they do on a desktop. Shopify offers your customers a great mobile experience, including a mobile checkout that works seamlessly on a phone. And the platform is always updating and innovating, so things will only get better.


Whether you’re a small start-up to a huge enterprise, Shopify offers different plan options to suit your needs. Used by big names in retail such as Emma Bridgewater, Shopify makes a great entry level product, but can also handle large inventories easily. It even works for wholesalers, with plenty of options available for every type of business. And no matter where you’re starting from, Shopify will grow with you.

Great customer support

You won’t be left to fend for yourself with Shopify. They have an excellent online Help Centre, with documentation and video tutorials on every conceivable aspect of the platform. And if you need to speak to an advisor, they provide worldwide 24/7 customer support.

Huge app marketplace

If you’re in need of any extra functionality, or want to connect your Shopify site to other platforms your business uses, then the Shopify marketplace will have an app that you can install and start working with straight away.

SEO friendly

Shopify is fantastic for improving your site’s SEO (search engine optimisation). The platform allows you to add meta titles and descriptions and attach alt text to your product images. There are lots of helpful apps, and you can run SEO reports to check up on how your site is performing.

It’s not going anywhere
Shopify powers over 800,000 stores. This is a trusted company that enables hundreds of thousands of business to set up online with ease - and reach a global audience.
