As a Shopify merchant, you have enormous digital business opportunities, and new features are constantly being developed.

What kind of business is Shopify best for?

Shopify is excellent for building various types of online stores. There are of course exceptions, but in general Shopify is a particularly suitable solution if the basic logic of your online store follows the logic of a typical online store. The visual look and user interface of the online store can also be created exactly the way you want, without major restrictions.

Shopify grows with your needs, but as the amount of customization and integrations increases, so does the amount of technical development work. If the solution you require significantly diverges from typical eCommerce logic or involves many customization needs, feel free to reach out for further discussion! Let’s discuss your needs in more detail.

If you’re currently exploring alternatives for eCommerce solutions that support your business, take a look at the online store solutions we’ve implemented here.

How quickly can a Shopify online store be set up?

With Shopify, you can get your business up and running quickly. Speed ​​matters, because tomorrow your customers may already be in another store buying the same or a competing product.

Compared to many other eCommerce platforms, Shopify has a short time-to-market. This means the time it takes from starting an eCommerce project to the first store. Why? Because compared to its competitors, Shopify has many things already ready for building and launching a straightforward online store.

What does Shopify’s scalability mean in practice?

A scalable online store works reliably even when visitor numbers suddenly increase or when business is busier than usual. As a cloud-based service, Shopify often scales better to large user numbers than its competitors operating on their own servers. Traffic peaks won’t bring down your Shopify store.

Scalability also means that the platform grows with your business needs. Shopify online stores can be easily customized and expanded if you want to become a B2B merchant or if you want to add customer experience-enhancing automations to your store.

When the entire system is thoughtfully built, Shopify is a cost-effective and easy-to-maintain online store. It is natively available in Finnish and also supports language versioning of one site for twenty different languages. At the end of a carefully developed and well-tested buying journey, customers can pay with all Finnish payment methods. In other words, purchasing is easy.

If you are looking for more scalability and functions, you should check out the Shopify Plus solution. We’ll tell you more about that soon.

A Shopify online store is always a unique

When there’s a business plan for the online store outlining target audiences, concept, and potential internationalization plans, things get started smoothly. There are several different options for building a Shopify online store. The work always starts with building integrations and defining store settings. The simplest way to implement the user interface is to choose from Shopify’s wide range of themes. Alternatively, a ready-made theme can be fully customized to fit the customer’s needs. In that case, the hosting and maintenance of the online store remain within Shopify’s own service.

The Shopify ecosystem includes a wide range of internal applications that you can leverage as part of your commerce. These applications span from customer communication or support to marketing, product reviews, or inventory management, and they can be accessed on a monthly subscription basis.

If all your wishes cannot be fulfilled within Shopify’s own service, a separate application can also be created for your store. This could be done, for example, if you wanted an online store inside another mobile application, as part of a wider website, or if you wanted a different URL structure for your store. The address structure can have an effect on the store’s search engine visibility.

Each online store is a unique entity, so often a hybrid solution may still be the best solution.

Integrations free up time for productive work

Shopify adapts to various needs. With Shopify’s interfaces, numerous external systems can be integrated into the online store. With integrations, you avoid duplicate work and free up resources for doing business.

If you want to integrate a product information management system or create new applications for your store, you can use the Admin API programming interface. With the Storefront API programming interface, your products can be sold on other sites or even in a mobile application. The Shopify App Store also has ready-made integrations for the most common systems.

We help you utilize the full potential of the interfaces so that you can make online shopping processes as smooth as possible.

Shopify also has its own solution for enterprise-level online stores. Over the years, the Shopify Plus solution has grown into a competitive platform for the demanding needs of consumer eCommerce and B2B eCommerce.
