Shopify, a leading e-commerce solution with more than 800,000 stores around the globe, is a cloud-based SaaS (software as a service) where entrepreneurs can set up their products online to be able to market and sell them, both online as well as offline. This includes creating websites and apps with a shopping cart, where the seller’s product can be managed and sold, the inventory can be maintained dynamically according to order activity, payment details can be set and products can be marketed. It helps the seller conveniently manage and expand their business without having to worry about website development and the technical issues that are linked to it.

The benefits of using Shopify as your go-to online shop include, but are not limited to:
Simple to use - people who are not tech-savvy but want to set up an online shop can easily use Shopify for selling their products. It is easy and straightforward to use and manage. Shopify has a dashboard which also advises on how to improve the performance of the website. Shopify also has how-to tutorials and detailed guides which help in setting up an account as well as fixing any glitches that might occur.
Use Shopify On The Go - Shopify is not just limited to be used on your computer; it has an app for both Android and iOS so you can manage and modify your website through your phone wherever you are.
Customization - there are lots of different themes to choose from, both free and paid, to suit your business style and brand identity. You can pick a theme, try it, see if it works for you and then pay for it instead of having to pay first and try later. You can also import a theme externally. If that doesn’t work for you either, we can help you create your own theme from scratch using the Liquid template engine. Moreover, you can choose and import Google web-safe fonts to differentiate your website from the standard templates. The best part about theme customization is that you do not have to be an expert in programming to be able to modify themes; anyone can customize a theme according to their requirements. Winterwind use employs senior UI designers that can create a custom theme for you.
Flexible - Shopify can help you set up multi-regional stores where transactions can take place in your local currency. Individual shipping costs can also be set up categorized by country or shipping carrier. Additionally, since you have complete access to the code, you can create customizations according to your own requirements.
Reliable - Shopify is not only convenient but it’s secure as well. Considering the sensitive information that the website will include, including your customers’ details, it is imperative that the website be secure. Additionally, an online shopping store needs to be just that - always online. Shopify is extremely reliable and their customer support staff is available 24/7 to ensure that your website and shopping cart is up and running smoothly at all times.
Troubleshooting and Customer Support - In case of any technical concerns with your Shopify account, their customer service is fast, smooth and reliable. They have a short response time and can be available through phone, email and live chat at all times. They also have an FAQ which can help troubleshoot a number of common issues.
Mobile-Friendly - In the current day and age when everything is going mobile, it is important that websites be mobile-friendly and responsive on all devices. Shopify ensures a mobile-optimised website which means that your online store will look perfect not just on your desktop, but on iPads, tablets and mobile phones as well!
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - Shopify’s Search Engine Optimization will help put your website at a higher rank in the search engine results so that potential customers are able to visit your website and buy the product you’re selling. It also provides advanced analytics on your customers which can be a useful tool to upgrade and modify your marketing tactics to ensure higher traffic and eventually higher revenue.

Shopify is consistently working on frequently adding new tools and features to enhance the Shopify experience.
Abandoned Cart Recovery - A unique feature in the Shopify software allows you to send a reminder to your customer through an automated email to complete their purchase. Many customers shopping online tend to add items in their shopping carts, only to abandon the shopping cart later on. The email reminders will assist you in interacting with the customers and eventually driving them to complete their purchase thereby increasing your revenue and profit.
Payment Options - Shopify allows for various payment options to allow for the convenience of its users. Credit cards (eg. Stripe Integration), PayPal and even Bitcoin are available as a payment option. Shopify has recently introduced their own Shopify Payment Gateway, which will waive the Shopify transaction fee, however this is only applicable in selected countries.
Shopify has the option of displaying prices by including or excluding tax, whichever is feasible for you and your customers. The tax and shipping prices can be customized according to country of origin. For US-based online stores, Shopify will automatically calculate the tax due based on the Zip Code.
The best part of Shopify is being able to run a business remotely without any hassle of a physical business. The only thing you require? An internet connection. We will take care of the rest.
