Zendesk Chat Review: Awesome Pricing Integrated With a Reputable Ticketing System

Ecommerce Reviews

You may have once known the Zendesk Chat plugin as Zopim. It was extremely popular and was eventually acquired and rebranded by Zendesk. With this change in name and the website itself, we're starting to see some other features introduced, particularly the awesome integrations with the Zendesk customer support and ticket software.

In this Zendesk Chat review, we'll talk about the best features, along with the cons that Zendesk still has to work on. Overall, it's a solid chat module with excellent customer support. You also don't have to worry about breaking your budget since you pay per agent per month and the pricing plans are quite reasonable.

Printful Review (Jan 2023): Higher Quality Printing and Dropshipping

Articles Ecommerce Reviews

If you've been in the printing business for more than, say, a month, you know how difficult it can be to find a printer that provides quality prints, delivers on time, and answers the questions to your customer support. There's a large collection of printing and fulfillment companies out there, and Printful is one of them.

In fact, Printful also falls into the category of dropshipper, or a supplier that stores the products for you, packages them, and ships them out to your customers after a purchase. So, essentially, all you have to do is upload your designs and start posting them on your website to start selling. In this Printful review, we'll outline the benefits of the service and show why many users choose Printful over the alternatives.

Shopify Lite Review: How It Works and When You Should Be Using It

Ecommerce Reviews

Editor's note (July 2022):

Shopify has transitioned its Shopify Lite plan to something called [Shopify Starter]. Many of the previous features remain, but you can expect some wonderful changes, like a drop in price from $9 per month to $5 per month. In addition, Starter members receive tools to monetize a link in social media bios. 

👉 Read our Shopify Starter review.

Other features for the Shopify Starter plan include selling on social media sites like WhatsApp and Instagram, along with analytics, customer support, and order management. It’s not anything like the regular ecommerce platform plans (you don’t get a full website with checkout functionality), but Shopify Starter provides an incredibly inexpensive way for creators, bloggers, and smaller stores to sell products on their already existing sites. Or, you could simply use the Starter plan to sell on social networks, without building your own online store at all. 

We encourage you to check out our Shopify Starter plan review, as that explains the differences between Shopify Starter and the now retired Shopify Lite plan explained in this article. 

The Shopify Lite plan is not only inexpensive, but it allows you to create a simple ecommerce store within minutes. That sounds like a pretty great deal, right? Well, it depends on the situation. For most online stores I'd recommend some of the regular Shopify pricing plans, considering you receive a full online store and shopping cart, and the features are far more robust for scaling up.

However, at $9 per month, it's tempting to look at Shopify Lite and think about implementing it for your own store. And for some businesses, it may be the perfect solution for selling products online. In this Shopify Lite review, we'll talk about how the cheapest Shopify plan works and when you should be using it.

Not only that, but we'll go deeper into what benefits the Shopify Lite plan can have for your business and maybe if you should consider using Shopify Lite for one side of your business–alongside a regular Shopify pricing plan for another side.
