What is Shopify? And why use this platform?
Shopify is one of the most successful e-commerce platforms out there. It's essentially a website builder, which allows you to create an online store from scratch, without knowing any programming language.
The platform is very easy to use, and it offers a variety of appealing services to its users. Once you set up your store, you can experiment with its design, you can use various marketing tools to boost sales, you can link your social media platforms, and so on.
As opposed to Wordpress, which is an amazing website builder when it comes to blogs, Shopify is mainly focused on e-commerce / online stores. So, if that's what you want to create (an online store), then Shopify may be the perfect platform for you.
