For an e-commerce business, there is no platform quite as easy to work with as Shopify. For one, it has a smooth UX that makes it an instant favorite choice for those who would rather avoid long lines of code. As a website builder, it comes equipped with tons of features like an inventory management system, ample customer support, and a blog that is a gold mine of ideas.
What also makes Shopify unique is the ecosystem of apps that have been designed to work with the platform. From MailChimp and Hubspot to several inventory management systems, there’s nothing that your e-commerce business needs and you cannot find in the Shopify App list.
