Hosted ecommerce platform, ideal for testing the market
Shopify is a hosted ecommerce solution, so unlike WooCommerce or OpenCart, the software cannot be downloaded and installed to your own hosting account. Shopify take care of all the server and software related aspects and you login to their system to update your website content.
There are pros and cons to each approach, but Shopify can be quicker and easier to set up for non-technical people.
To change the appearance of your Shopify website, you can choose a free or paid Theme from the marketplace to be applied to your online shop.
Adding functionality like accounting or email marketing is done by installing an ‘app’, also available from the Shopify marketplace.
