Shopify is an online ecommerce platform that enables you to create your own online shop and sell products both locally and globally. It is a standalone, self-hosted retail platform that can also be integrated into other CMS platforms, most notably WordPress.
The great appeal of Shopify is its simplicity and the ability to add new products, change prices and availability, etc. It also very quick and easy to integrate your store and promote products across your social media channels.
There is a huge range of Shopify ecommerce themes that enable you to showcase your products in a variety of ways, so that the look of your online shop is in keeping with your brand identity and client base.
At YNW, we can set up your site, install and modify your chosen theme, and then install functions and plug-ins so that your Adelaide ecommerce site has the functionality you want and meets your users’ needs.
With a Shopify ecommerce site, all the software and hosting is taken care of by Shopify, so you are in fact getting a complete online retail store package. There are several advantages to this including:
There are a variety of different payment plans for hosting and operating an online Shopify store. The right plan for you will depend o the amount of traffic and sales your site is likely to generate.
In order to be able to process your payments online, you are charged a fee for every sale you make in your online store by the payment gateway provider e.g., PayPal, Stripe, etc. Shopify will also charge you a fee on top this of around 2%, but you can reduce this fee to 0.5% if you opt for the Advanced Shopify payment plan.
Shopify doesn’t host email accounts, but it does allow you to create forwarding email addresses. For example, you can set up an email address like info@myshopifyshop, and any messages you receive at this address will be forwarded to your regular business email.
Shopify has its own payment gateway called Shopify Payments, but it can also be integrated with a variety of other third party payment gateways, so it’s possible for your customers to pay using credit cards, or a range of online payment processing systems like PayPal, Stripe and others.
If you already have a WordPress website, we can integrate this with your Shopify store so that your customers have a seamless shopping experience at your site.
WooCommerce has been developed specifically to be an online retail platform that can be integrated seamlessly into WordPress websites, so if your site already runs on Wordpress it is straightforward to add a store.

Once you set up a WooCommerce store, there is a huge array of extensions that will add exciting features and functionality to your online shop. If you want to add an automatic shipping calculator, dynamic pricing, auto-generated shipping labels, or any of the other great features available, we can install and configure these for you, so that you can offer your customers an even better online shopping experience.
As WooCommerce is designed to be integrated into a WordPress site, there is no fee for the plug-in that is required for the initial set up of a WooCommerce online store. You will need, however, to pay for site hosting if you are setting up a new WooCommerce store from scratch.
When you use a payment gateway like PayPal or Stripe to process payments in your WooCommerce online store, you are charged a fee. This will depend on the provider, but you can expect it to be around 2%-3%; however, you are not charged any commission fees by WooCommerce.
There are literally thousands of WooCommerce storefront themes to choose from, which we can install and modify for you so that your online shop looks exactly how you want it to look, and it has all the functionality your customers need to do business with you.
