What Does Shopify Cost? And Should I Pay?

Shopify isn’t free and unlike with open source platforms like WooCommerce and the community version of Magento.  But Shopify price plans per month are pretty decent when you see what you get for your money.  Even when you choose the lowest tier plan or the highest you do get the following which most other platforms will struggle to compete with

  • Low transaction fees – starting at 2% and decreasing depending on the price tier you choose. Iyou do a large amount of sales per day,week, month then moving to a higher priced monthly tier does make sense.
  • Stability:  Shopify eCommerce sites live on the Shopify ecosystem exclusively so you have a huge stability and speed advantage from self hosted eCommerce platforms.  With this comes security and backups and a dedicated support team for any issues.
