What's your experience with Shopify been like?

Talk to me about Shopify.

My current teacher is looking into it as yet another
way to make money online to teach to us because he's
hearing more and more good things about it, but until
his research is done, what has your experience been?

Thanks for all your input

    When it comes to running an online store Shopify is definitely a leader. I've ran several stores using Shopify. It's easy to use and the support is pretty good. There's a ton of support from the community so there are many apps and templates that can help you shape your store to any way you please.

    However running a Shopify store and actually making money with it is a whole different topic.

      Wow. Good to know.

      My husbands daughter's boyfriend has been using it for two years now.

      his product took off and they thought she'd be moving out of our house they were gonna get so much money.

      what they forgot is the amount they'd have to put back in to the business to keep it running.

      he's struggling man.

      where do u suggest i and or he can learn better money making strategies for it?

      have you earned anything? have you stuck with it?

    What you are saying is they didn't plan for expenses or (most likely) keep good records....is there ANY business where you sell physical products and don't have to 'restock'?

    How could anyone give advice to your husband's daughtrer's boyfriend....he needs to get on some sites and forums for himself.
    Have you looked at his accounting/business records.

    When I first worked online many years ago I was surprised at how many 'marketers' treated any income as 'profit'...and how quickly they failed or faded away. Online or offline - you have to run a business like a business. When I was freelancing my first goal every month was to earn enough to pay the mortgage and all the bills and put a bit in savings....after that I could get pickier about what work I took on. Until I had made expenses for the month, it was work work work.

    There are countless videos online of 'how to set up your shopify store' - 'how to reach profit' - how to plan your store, etc. There are literally dozens of 'step by step' guides to starting/maintaining shopify stores.

    Online or offline - starting a business is a risk that may or may not pay off.

      thanks for sharing, Kay! I understood this at the beginning when they started their business, and I knew they'd need to pour more money back in to keep going. And I mentioned that, but my husband is kind of devastated and led on. Oh well, such is life.

      I gently let my husband know two years ago when his daughter told him she'd
      be in the money and moving out within a year and on her own two feet from the shopify venture,
      not to quite believe it. That in business if you don't have the proper mindset or
      operations, it's possible when suddenly experiencing an initial windfall like they did to make promises you can't
      keep.

      But hubby didn't believe me. And what I said, has come true, and now I'm hearing from experts who back me up.

      Moving ON, though...i'd still love to hear more about Shopify.

      The boyfriend has created his own product, which is actually quite cool!! A mockup of different NASA shuttle control panel parts that went like hot cakes at first. I was happy for them.

      It's not a business model i like for myself, because it's a lot of physical work.

      But

      If you use shopify, have you created your own product or where/how did you get your product? Do you stock multiple products?

    I don't have a Shopify account but I have read about the success stories .

    With that being said It's not as simple as launching and selling products and services .

    Your teacher should use blogging as a vehicle to drive traffic build his audience and also to compliment his Shopify website.

    This goes back a very long time ago in history. Probably zero reasons it will actually help you now, with this information. At the time Shopify was offering one of its trial periods. At the time I was selling the same item on eBay. Thinking it would be easier to make a bigger profit than eBay. Setting the item up to sell on Shopify was not hard.

    Now here is the problem, that probably causes 90% of the failures on Shopify. How do you get traffic to your product? Social Media at the time was not as big as today. My account with Google paid ads was banned for a dumb mistake on my part. What basically boiled down to was. You need to know how to drive buyers to your store. If you can not do that after the trial period is over. Shopify monthly fees kick in! At that point, I stop using the site.

    There is nothing wrong with the platform, just like any other e-commerce site that you use to sell items.

      Wow. So it STILL comes back to driving traffic.

      There's only one platform I've found personally, (and there could be more out there, dont know) that doesn't need traffic driven to it to get more buyers, and that's Substack (for publishing and podcasting, not selling items).

      I've gained a few subscribers/"buyers"...JUST by being there!!

      (Don't know how Substack developed into that kind of platform, but it's great.)

      And you answered the question I didn't even know I was asking

    It's touching that you maintain faith in a teacher who's just getting around to checking out a platform that was founded in 2006, but asking for others' experience isn't going to tell you very much. As has been pointed out, Shopify is essentially an eCommerce platform - it's not a marketplace (at least not yet). Any successful Shopify store will be as a result of the promotional efforts and traffic generation by the seller.

    The advantage of marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay and Etsy is that the buyers are already there.

    That's not to say that you can't add a Shopify store to your other online outlets, but you'd probably find it more cost-effective to use for a list of products rather than a single item.

    Shopify is "ok" if you're just getting started in e-commerce. However I found it too restrictive. I want to have upsell funnels post checkout based on what was in the shopping cart with one click buying since the customer just entered their CC. This isn't possible on Shopify and their "also consider" or "other customers also bought" plugins are lackluster.

    So I would actually recommend paying a coder to create exactly what you want if you have the financial ability to do so. It's what I did and my ecom businesses have shot through the roof because of all the extra things I can do now.

    Wait ... something else just hit me. Your teacher is looking at shopify as another way to make money online to teach you? He shouldn't be teaching anyone anything about ecom or shopify until he can say he has a track record of success with it for at least a year or really two or he's just talking out his rear.

    Drives me crazy that these false gurus do something once then want to yap about it as if they know what they're talking about.

    Yes, ecom is a great way to make money online. But absolutely no one should be teaching ecom unless they have had repeated success with it across 12 to 24 months minimum. There's more to it than simply starting a store when it comes to physical products. You need to know how to scale, find new suppliers, 3PL so you aren't trying to handle shipping yourself, and on and on. Starting up some BS dropshipping store and making a few grand is something anyone with any internet marketing experience can do.

    Growing that into a viable ecom business long term is an entirely different story all together. Your "teacher" should know that. That he doesn't ... you might want to find a different teacher.

      I may have confused you and others in my original post. I apologize.

      I merely mentioned my teacher was looking into it, not that he was going to teach us for sure. He's making money with other methods and knows that shopify is for ecommerce only and that he would have to go into ecommerce himself and test it for a few years. He only mentioned it in passing one day, anyway.

      My original post was really to understand what my husband's daugher's boyfriend had gotten himself into (and thus the daughter too, because she refuses to keep her well paying steady job now for the past year, running up bills, staying in our home without paying rent or utilities, not paying her car tolls that are in her father's name, while she's dreaming of spending her days with her "rich" boyfriend making money off Shopify), and so all of you have educated me greatly.

      All your posts are also opening my husband's eyes also. He is seeing that his daughter will probably never pay him/us back.

      I just read my husband some of your SUPER informative replies. It really helped me see the situation even more realistically, AND i now hope husband understands why I've been asking him to stop lending her our money, etc., and that we will NEVEr see that money again (approx $8000 now).

      He particularly seemed to understand when I mentioned the difference between Amazon and Shopify that you've taught me here. Wow! GREAT info and I'm super thankful to all of you.

      The other issue I realize that's being brought out, is that the boyfriend is, for a business model, following his personal PASSION (aircraft/space travel/ items) without using proven business models. I could have fallen into that trap, because my first passion is fiction-writing, and when I began to produce readable books two years ago and didn't see many sales, I quickly realized I needed a proven business model to make more active income.

      I've given up my passion-model for now, until i can relax a few years on down the line once passive income has begun, and pursue my passion again in my freed up time.

        UPDATE: i Googled this question again, this time from my laptop and got a result
        called Shopify/capital. i guess it's real. if so, the daughter is showing irresponsiblity at
        using the shopify capital earlier this year to pay her mountain of unpaid tolls.

        Original post: P.S. That brings me to the question I wanted to ask in the first place, but maybe because of how I phrased it, the post was removed.

        Perhaps it won't be removed now.

        The question is, have any of you who've used Shopify experienced their Shopify loans?
        I"M NOT LOOKING FOR LOAN ADVICE. I Simply want to know: are they a real thing?

        (That is what my husband's daughter told us she was going to use to pay us back when we confronted her about the $1000s of dollars we'd just found out she'd been running up without paying, and that was about to make her father get his driver's license suspended because her car loan is primarily in my husband's name.)

        I still know she most likely will never pay us back, and when I googled the first time, I couldn't find much on Shopify loans at all, whether it's real thing or not.

        Thanks!

    I used it for a short time seven or eight years ago.

    I found it to be lacking in several important ways: for example there is no way to add Google analytics.

    I ended up scraping it and building my own site using Paypal super simple shopping cart.

      Yes. That's been my tactic so far.

    If there is indeed a "Product' at the heart of all of this... i do not understand the need for a Shopify store.

    A shopify store is fine and dandy if you have a following of one type or another.. the recent addition of adding shopify items from your store into your YouTube video description area being an example of this.

    A crafted or made item should be sold on Etsy, and if there is more than one product i would be on Etsy and probably Amazon handmade.

    Etsy and eBay, Amazon, and Facebook/Instagram Marketplaces ALL have built in traffic.. I it removes 3/4 the battle - it comes down to mastering the Image, The Title, the Description, and the Price. These 4 absolute mandatory elements to selling a product are hard enough on their own - let alone trying to acquire targeted / interested traffic.

    A one single item will only go so far... over time you have to change up and expand... McDonalds started with just burgers but over time it Added Chicken... it added breakfast... it evolves and changes by geography.

      Wow. I love the depth you went into here.

      Yes. There's at least one handmade product.

      Hm. Perhaps the boyfriend is smarter than I'm realizing, because I'm NOT involved, I'm staying quiet and not asking. Perhaps he's on more than one platform, it just occurred to me.
      The daughter doesn't communicate/inform her father about these things and I don't wish to speak with her since she's a screamer, and my focus is better spent on my own business endeavors and interests.

      Perhaps she just mentioned Shopify and its loan feature to placate us, to make us believe she would pay us back the amount we spent paying off her unpaid tolls to save my husband's driver's license from being suspended, and to pay off the car to get my husband's name and responsibility off it.

      It's always been my opinion, due to her past behavior, that she frequently uses her father for little things without paying him back, and because this is a BIG thing, I really see no reason for me or him to get our hopes up that she'll use a Shopify loan to pay it back.

      In this situation I'd rather be wrong, than right. I'm erring on the side of caution that we'll never be paid back than sitting around and holding my breath.

      I just don't bring up the subject at all now, when my husband and I are by ourselves.

      I initially sprang into action to save his license because he was blindsided by it, has special needs that make computers and payment procedures rather difficult for him with today's technology, knowing all along inside my heart this was lost money.

      I've educated him a little from all ur responses, as I became educated too, and now it's up to my husband to believe his daughter or not believe her. I'm on the sidelines now again, doing my own thing.

      Thanks everyone for chiming in! You have no idea the great support, education about Shopify and peace of mind you've given me through this fiasco.

    In general I would like to mention some of pros and cons from my experience.

    Pros of using Shopify:

    Ease of use: Many online platforms, including Shopify, are designed to be user-friendly and easy to navigate, even for users who are not tech-savvy or have little experience with e-commerce.

    Flexibility: Online platforms like Shopify offer a range of features and tools that can be customized to suit the needs of different businesses. This can include options for customizing the appearance of the online store, managing inventory, and processing payments.

    Support: Most online platforms, including Shopify, offer customer support and resources to help users get started and troubleshoot any issues that may arise. This can be especially helpful for businesses that are new to e-commerce.

    Cons of using Shopify:

    Cost: Online platforms like Shopify typically charge a monthly subscription fee, as well as transaction fees for each sale. This can add up over time, especially for businesses with high sales volumes or low profit margins.

    Limited control: While online platforms offer a range of customizable options, businesses may still be limited in terms of the design and functionality of their online store. This can be frustrating for businesses that want to create a unique or highly customized online presence.

    Dependence: Using an online platform like Shopify can create a certain level of dependence on the platform for managing the online store and processing transactions. This can be a disadvantage for businesses that want to have more control over their online sales process or want to migrate to a different platform in the future.

    Overall, the pros and cons of using Shopify will depend on the specific needs and goals of the business. It may be worth considering the potential costs and limitations, as well as the support and flexibility offered by the platform, before making a decision.

      Regarding dependence. It is good to depend on nobody but yourself. However, depending on platforms like Shopify is not a bad thing, as long as it is only part of your income that's tied to it.


      So, once you're set on Shopify, you branch out on all the places Savidged4 mentioned above and, then, you create your own site.


      If you're making money from 10 platforms equaly, if one goes sour, you lose only 10% of your income stream.


      The ideal is to have many (even if little) streams, if peace of mind is a requirement. Of course, you do not cancel one just because it's grown large... you learn from that and apply to your other streams.


      Putting all your income sources in one basket is the issue, not, in my opinion, that you depend on part of your income from a particular platform/ way of making money.


      The limited-control part bugs me the most.


      They just don't build these platforms to suit my idiosincrasies. Tsk, tsk, tsk. (

      Limited control: While online platforms offer a range of customizable options, businesses may still be limited in terms of the design and functionality of their online store. This can be frustrating for businesses that want to create a unique or highly customized online presence.

      Dependence: Using an online platform like Shopify can create a certain level of dependence on the platform for managing the online store and processing transactions. This can be a disadvantage for businesses that want to have more control over their online sales process or want to migrate to a different platform in the future.

      Overall, the pros and cons of using Shopify will depend on the specific needs and goals of the business. It may be worth considering the potential costs and limitations, as well as the support and flexibility offered by the platform, before making a decision.

    I really like Shopify, I find their backend software to be really well designed. I have no problems with my website, and the large library of apps lets me customize my sites how I want to.

    We find Shopify to be user-friendly, with a straightforward and intuitive interface that makes it easy to create and manage an online store. Its various features, including payment processing, inventory management, and website design, are also generally well-received.

    On the other hand, some users may find the platform's fees and limitations to be drawbacks. For example, Shopify charges transaction fees for certain payment gateways, and its app store can be expensive for businesses that need many additional features. Additionally, some users may find the platform to be limited in terms of customization options, especially for users with more advanced technical needs.
