Shopify is by far the most desirable ecommerce platform for quickly getting a store up and running online, but a common question seems to constantly come up when companies begin building their stores. Which Shopify pricing plan is best for me?
The Shopify team offers four plans to choose from Shopify Lite, Basic Shopify, Shopify and Advanced Shopify. It's often tough to see which one you should choose, considering you don't want to needlessly spend money for features you don't require.
The world of dropshipping is often considered the easiest way to sell products online. The biggest difference between drop shipping and the standard retail model is that in drop shipping, the selling merchant doesn't stock his own inventory. Instead, the merchant purchases inventory as needed from a third party – usually dropshipping wholesalers or manufacturers – to fulfil orders.
We have looked at the pros and cons of each, what features they offer that set them apart and what sort of business suits each software.
At the end of the article, we pick a winner, a highly commended and runner-up. Are there any we haven't mentioned? Leave it in the comments below.
Shopify is filled with tools for launching a site within minutes, plus you don't have to worry about self-hosting or buying a domain name from a third party. In that respect, one could call it the perfect out-of-the-box solution, built with pricing plans that cater to small starter stores as well as shops that are bringing in millions of dollars in sales.
Luckily, Shopify offers a simple interface and an all-in-one shopping cart system that all experience levels can understand. However, once you get started with Shopify, it may become a little confusing. After all, it's still a rather powerful SaaS (software as a service) solution meant to operate on a professional level with multiple moving pieces like payment processing, marketing, and web design.
Whether you're making an online store to sell your new sock puppet design or you'd like to run a blog on the topic of neutering pets, launching a platform with a website builder is almost always cheaper than hiring an actual developer to do so.

No matter your niche, finding and using the right theme for your WooCommerce store is integral. Needless to say, the sports nutrition industry is no exception – your site still has to communicate credibility and expertise.

When it comes to where to host your website, there are so many options available – SiteGround, WP Engine or Nexcess, etc. This makes choosing the perfect web hosting provider a lot trickier. And it isn't just about the many options for hosting available, it's that they all present themselves as offering the best uptime (availability), load speed, security, ease of use, and support service.
So who do you believe? Who do you go for? You can simply just go for the most popular web hosting service. But would they match your specific needs? A popular option like WP Engine, for example, is better fit for a website with a large target audience and complex offering but what if you just run a simple site with small-sized traffic?
Plus, will the web host cater to your audience adequately in terms of load speed and availability? Some well-known options are simply known because of their affordability but their service may not be the right fit for your specific needs such as WordPress installation or WordPress themes availability.
In a saturated market, how companies market themselves is vital for competing against their rivals and bringing their brand's values to the forefront. Your business needs to work with marketing experts across various disciplines to succeed with an effective marketing campaign.
