Shopify is based on the open-source WordPress platform, which is hosted on Google’s Cloud Platform. The platform is designed to allow merchants to create an online store for selling their products. Customers can also search for products by rating, price, and features.
Merchants can use Shopify for online sales, or they can use it as a plugin to sell their product in-person. Shopify also offers users e-commerce templates, to help them create an online store using pre-existing products or images. Shopify is compatible with products from a range of software providers, including Adobe, Microsoft, Magento, and WooCommerce.
Shopify’s flexibility can be a great asset to smaller eCommerce stores. eCommerce stores with different product ranges can have their own unique online stores.
