Its shopping cart functionality allows online customers to enter payment information and immediately purchase physical products, services, or digitally shared data files (like music, movies, videos, or various guides and instruction manuals).
If you need to sell it, digitally transfer it, or physically ship it, a Shopify website from Amity Digital will help capture and fulfill a customer’s order with an efficient, easy-to-use eCommerce platform – a platform managed and edited by a user-friendly content management system (CMS).
How popular is Shopify? Currently, 1.2 million people use the Shopify backend platform. That equates to roughly 500,000 businesses in 175 countries. So, are all the cool kids using it? Yes, and so are their slightly uncool siblings and totally square parents.
Is Shopify easy to use? Oh, yes. Shopify, like WordPress, is a user-friendly CMS that allows for custom-built websites tailored to products, services, and audiences. And being user-friendly, any edits to the overall design and content can be achieved without coding experience (however, HTML and CSS can still be edited, so if you’re knowledgeable or feeling brave, break out the coding cap and edit to your heart’s content).
Is a Shopify website responsive? Can you actually use a Shopify website on a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device? Oh, absolutely. All pages, products, and shopping-relevant functions found on a desktop computer are perfectly configured for handheld devices. So, if you have the urge to buy half-a-dozen stuffed unicorns dressed like astronauts, just pull out your phone, head over to…uh…unicornsinspace.com (which totally doesn’t exist, but probably should), and confidently add those space-themed fantasy thoroughbreds to your cart.
PS: It’s also great for brick-and-mortar stores. Why? Because Shopify’s on-board point-of-sale system features a Bluetooth-enabled card reader allowing people to make in-person retail purchases.
Is Shopify secure? And then some. Over one-billion orders have been placed through Shopify, so the powerful eCommerce platform depends on digitally redundant security measures. Case in point: Security is upheld through Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliance for all online stores, and a shopping cart boasting an SSL certificate with 128-bit encryption used by major banks.
