Shopify is a leading provider of DIY Shopping Cart sites. It’s popularity comes from ease of use and prices starting at, $29/month, but expect to pay $79/month if you want Gift Cards, Professional Reports, Abandoned Cart Recovery and Lower Payment Processing Rates.
Shopify provides 9 free templates/themes with variations in each theme. You can purchase a premium theme from a choice of about 45 themes for less than $200. Each theme provides options, but not what we would call fully customizable.
Shopify does offer the ability to edit CSS and HTML (which translates to behind the scenes programming code), but for most folks, this is stepping off the ledge in difficulty. If you are looking for easy, stick with what Shopify offers out of the box or hire a consultant for assistance.
The bottom line for Shopify is that it may be a little less expensive but offers less flexibility and control over your site. It is a great first step without huge investment. It will help you see if your business is suited for online sales before you invest considerably more in another solution.
