This feature of a Shopify store can be a huge cost savings. If you were to set up an online store on your own, you’d have to contract with a third party credit card processor such as Authorize.net, who would not only charge you a per-transaction fee in the same neighborhood as Shopify, but they’d also likely hit you with a setup fee in the hundreds of dollars, as well as a monthly maintenance fee which tends to be in the $30 range. When you’re just starting out, those extra fees can put a lot of drag on your launch, so using Shopify’s payment gateway is a smart move—unless you already process payments on another site with a third-party provider.
Shopify is a simple way to create and customise a fully featured online store. Sometimes you may want to automatically capture new online orders to your CRM as new leads. Use Zapier to start automatically adding new Shopify orders to your CRM as they are created. Once you set up this integration, new Shopify orders created from that point forward are individually added to Salesforce as new leads.
Pinterest, for instance, has Buyable Pins that enable merchants to sell products featured on their Pinterest page. According to the site, “Buyable Pins have a blue price tag, which tells people your product is in stock and available for purchase. People can easily spot these Pins all over Pinterest—in search results, in related Pins and on your business profile.”
Great and informative article. I have one question….. if you have a brick and mortar store where you sell your products and you want to add a website store selling say your jewelry. Is there any problem with removing products from your website that have sold from your store? Not linking POS system for the online to the brick and mortar store? This is a store located in a resort area and for 3 months a year you are so busy ringing the cash register that it will be difficult to maintain inventory. But if we use the Shopify basic or Shopify mid plan is their a fee for transactions placed in store? On our current credit card system. In essence, if we remove a product from the website how does Shopify view that? I hope I have explained this coherently and thank you in advance for your help
These reviews are rigged. Shopify is outragous, they require you to buy an app to get simple tiered pricing in your store, then take $0.30 plus a percentage for EACH sale you make… I hope I will never get to a point in my life where myself or anyone I know will need to use shopify. I would rather spend 4 years of school learning computer science, it would be the cheaper route after 2 years of using shopify. Again, the fact that they still dont have tiered pricing built into their basic or premium plans bloes me away… your customers will have to pay the same price per unit whether they buy 1 or 100
