Experts at Thane-based SSI suggest Shopify can help small businesses launch online stores quickly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted shopping habits like never before. A more significant number of people around the world prefer online shopping and door-step, contactless delivery of goods. Thus, small and medium businesses that relied on physical stores are quickly reshaping their business models and launching online stores.

“Small and medium-sized businesses have limited budgets and resources. Thankfully, Shopify can help such firms in creating, managing, and maintaining online stores. Often referred to as a hosted, all-in-one platform, the framework is used by more than 1 million businesses in 175 countries. It is suitable for home furnishing, food and beverage, fashion and apparel, consumer electronics, beauty, and cosmetic products sellers. Put simply, Shopify can be the best option for small businesses looking for a custom eCommerce solution. From the storefront design setting, performance analytics tools to content marketing widgets, most of the elements are already integrated into the platform. Third-party extensions make adding features extremely easy. Shopify allows multiple channel social selling. The framework is super easy to set up, and offers superb themes that have varied designs,” said the executive from Smart Sight Innovations (SSI) during a recent teleconference.

Shopify uses a software-as-a-service business model and businesses need to pay a monthly subscription fee depending on their chosen plan. Basic, Shopify, Shopify Lite, Gold, and Advanced Shopify are five plans with varied features. A trustworthy vendor like Smart Sight Innovations can help you choose the best variant depending on the features that the business requires. As it is a self-hosted platform, there’s no need to pay additional hosting charges annually.

Sellers can also set up their online shop using this framework all by themselves. However, several factors need expert assistance. Selecting themes, third-party widgets, setting up staff accounts, and choosing a payment gateway is not easy. If you wish to select a reputed custom eCommerce development company that has helped small and large firms with tailor-made solutions, you should surely get in touch with team SSI.
