SHOPIFY PLUS: WHEN YOU NEED IT FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND HOW MUCH IT COSTS
7 REASONS WHY YOUR BRAND SHOULD MOVE TO SHOPIFY PLUS
Let's say your brand bills approximately $500k+/year online and also has a good track record of growth. How can Shopify Plus help your business grow even more?
Below we show you a series of examples of aspects or situations that may be a struggle in your business that prevents the business from growing. It is quite possible that the brand you work for is suffering from some of the following problems.
1. PROBLEMS WITH RELIABILITY AND SCALABILITY
In traffic peaks such as Black Friday, you have trouble keeping your shop or online stores available 100% of the time, i.e. they suffer falls.
The machines where your business has hosted e-commerce and other marketing applications has reached its limit and needs more resources.
2. LACK OF FLEXIBILITY
Adding new functionalities and optimizing the existing ones in your online store, as well as making the necessary connections with other marketing and sales systems, are processes that are too costly in time and money.
Your business has an important dependence on the technical and that causes the team to talk more about technology than desired and less about the business itself.
3. COSTS ARE TOO HIGH
The costs associated with both the maintenance and development of e-commerce are too high.
You need to introduce automation in the marketing of your business, optimize resources, and increase productivity.
4. LACK OF TIME
There is significant pressure to have the new online store selling in a short period of time.
5. SALES RESTRICTIONS IN OTHER CHANNELS
Your current online store cannot be easily integrated with the other online and offline channels of your business such as Facebook, Instagram, physical sales, and B2B.
6. DESIGN RESTRICTIONS
Your e-commerce platform may be powerful, but it has too many design restrictions.
Your brand needs a functional, intuitive, modern, and optimized design for any screen size. And all this, modifiable at any time by anyone on your team - not necessarily developers, but rather marketing and sales.
7. IMPROVABLE SUPPORT
You pay a lot of money, but you're not happy with the support service.
Do you see yourself and your business reflected in some of these points? Maybe it's time to consider Shopify Plus and make the leap to e-commerce without headaches, solving with one stroke not only the seven problems mentioned, but many more related to using technology to optimize your time and focus on other areas of your business.
AND HOW MUCH DOES SHOPIFY PLUS COST?
The Shopify Plus license costs a fixed maximum of 2000 USD/month for all businesses with a turnover of no more than 9.5 million USD per year. If your business invoices more than that amount, the investment in Shopify Plus becomes only a percentage of your sales that is around 0.25%.
Following Shopify's SaaS model, the fee includes not only the software, but also the infrastructure, support, updates, security, and other relevant factors - many of which you can ignore to concentrate exclusively on making your business grow.
With one license you can have up to 9 different stores to sell in different regions, languages, currencies, or channels (e.g. B2B).
Shopify Plus has many other compelling reasons to move up a level, such as the different marketing process automation solutions that are included, the customization of the checkout and other advanced functionalities through the Shopify Plus API, or the 24/7 priority support.
