If you’re already on Shopify then you’ve likely heard of partners before and you’re probably thinking “Shopify is so simple, why do I need a Partner?” – and that’s a fair point. Or perhaps you’re new or thinking about moving to a Shopify store? Either way, I’ll explain how Partners can help.
Shopify markets itself as an incredibly easy to use, robust and scalable e-commerce platform. All of that is true and more; in fact, Shopify is more of an ecosystem. The Shopify ecosystem is a diverse and hardened network consisting of:
- Shopify’s core platform
- Shopify Partners and Experts
- Shopify apps and App Partners
- Merchant success support
The benefits of using a Shopify Partner
While the Shopify platform itself is user-friendly and flexible, Partners are there to help with all aspects of bringing your e-commerce store online or migrating from another platform. Because Partners have experience of bringing stores online, they’ve very likely seen all the problems you might be facing before, they know how to solve them, and it’s always handy to have them by your side.
Shopify Partners know the ins and outs of integrations, so they can expand the Shopify system to suit your needs – be it fulfilment integrations or custom-made apps, storefronts and corporate systems. With a Partner, Shopify can be the best e-commerce platform experience for your customers and staff and it can be expanded to do so much more.
Partners are trusted and are fully supported by Shopify. They can help to get you the right support, even if it’s outside of their experience, while access to merchant success staff will help you make the best decisions to grow your online business. These staff are highly trained and experienced consultants who have often come from large e-commerce stores themselves.
What’s in it for Partners? Well, like most platforms, there are small kickbacks for affiliates, but the real benefit is the unparalleled support and opportunity for Partners that Shopify offers on a platform which has seen massive growth over the last few years. No less than $1.5bn of sales over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend of 2019 went through Shopify’s store platform.
