Frequently Asked Questions

How much do I have to pay for Shopify?
Shopify is a pay-monthly platform, with a tiered pricing structure varying from £25-£344/month. Each price tier depends on the number of users and additional features, and has its own per-transaction fee. Alternatively, Shopify Plus is available at $2,000/month (approximately £1,700/month), which includes 9 additional expansion stores alongside a main store.
Does Shopify take a percentage of sales?
Depending on your package, Shopify has a per-transaction fee. For online credit card transactions, Shopify has a rate of 1.6%-3.1% plus a rate of 20p-25p per transaction. For in-person credit card transactions, Shopify has a rate of 1.5-1.7%. For payments processed by other providers (non-Shopify payments), Shopify has a rate of 0.5-2%.
Does Shopify integrate with other systems?
Absolutely – Shopify integrates with a huge variety of systems, including marketing tools (e.g. Hubspot and Mailchimp), accounting systems, inventory management systems and more. There is a huge marketplace of Apps available for all kinds of integrations.
How much should I budget for Shopify apps?
The pricing for apps varies, with some apps being totally free and others having a monthly cost. A typical app can cost around £25/month, therefore for 5 apps it would work out at roughly £125 a month alongside your main Shopify plan.
Does Shopify host websites?
Shopify does not host websites, it only hosts stores. Shopify is an eCommerce store platform, not a website hosting service.
Do I own my Shopify store?
When using Shopify, you have full ownership of your store and data – including the domain name. It’s fully possible to migrate pre-existing stores to Shopify, as well as migrate from Shopify to other third-party eCommerce sites should you need to.
Can I easily change Shopify Development Agencies?
Changing agencies with Shopify is much easier than other platforms. Using collaborator permissions, you can give Shopify Partners direct access to your Shopify admin areas. With adjustable collaborator permissions, you can limit the areas they can have access to. Having a Shopify Partner as a collaborator does not count towards your Shopify staff limit.
