Do you have or are planning your own website? Then you should read our latest review of Shopify

In today's digital age, e-commerce has gained enormous importance. Shopify offers a user-friendly and scalable solution for companies of all sizes. But does the platform actually extend beyond e-commerce? In this review we would like to look critically and neutrally at the advantages and disadvantages of Shopify.


✅ Ease of use

Shopify impresses with its intuitive user interface, which enables even beginners to quickly set up a professional online shop. No programming knowledge is required to create a basic framework for your shop. A text AI is now also integrated into the text fields, which provides enormous support when writing texts.

What particularly stands out to us is that our customers (small and medium-sized companies as well as startups) get along very well with the interface and the modular system. We offer (if desired) a small or more extensive initial training on the Shopify system and are always available to answer questions, however, thanks to the intuitive system, our customers are almost immediately independent , can make all changes and product additions and can therefore run their web shop or website completely independently . This means you are not permanently dependent on an agency and can take over your site completely yourself after the setup has been handed over.

The independence and autonomy of our customers is particularly important to us. With this approach, we do not necessarily "bind" our customers to our skills permanently and do not leave them in the dark or unknowing.

✅ Customizability

The platform offers a wide range of customization options. Thanks to the wide range of themes and apps, the online shop can be individually designed and adapted to specific needs. The themes are very up-to-date and continue to inspire us again and again.

✅ Scalability

Shopify is suitable for small startups to large e-commerce companies. With different plans, the platform can be customized as your business grows.

✅ Payment options

With over 100 payment gateways, transaction processing is flexible and global. Shopify also offers its own payment solution, Shopify Payments .

✅ Customer service

Customer service is available 24/7 via various channels such as telephone, email and live chat, which is a huge relief, especially for beginners. The Shopify Help Center is particularly recommended, as it answers almost every specific request from developers and also shares codes for customizations.


⚠️ Costs

The ongoing costs can quickly add up. In addition to the monthly hosting fee, there may be additional costs for themes, apps and payment gateways. On average, these are €49 per month for us and our customers.

⚠️ Limitations of the standard code

While Shopify's Liquid templating language is flexible, it can be limiting for complex customizations, especially when trying to extend the store beyond e-commerce functionality. The customization of the URL structure is also limited.

Conclusion and recommendation

Shopify is undoubtedly one of the best and most sophisticated platforms on the market. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages, and with a (still) fair pricing model for the range of possibilities, it represents a cost-efficient solution for small and large companies. The platform is not only impressive in the e-commerce sector, but also as a website builder for versatile online -Projects.

Despite minor criticisms such as costs and limitations, Shopify offers an excellent overall package. Its ease of use, customizability, and scalability make it the first choice for anyone looking to build an online store or website.

We now build 90% of all customers websites in Shopify and recommend Shopify as the most sophisticated and best price/performance website builder on the market - not just for e-commerce.

Especially since our customers usually want to leave it open to selling digital products such as online courses, PDF guides and of course haptic products in the future, or are already planning to do so.

👉 There is currently an offer to test Shopify for free and then get Shopify for 3 months for just €1/month (on selected plans)!
