Things to Consider
Fee: If you open a store on Shopify, your fee to Shopify is $29 a month (less if you prepay). This includes UNLIMITED listings that never expire. There are no final value fees (commissions) that you pay to Shopify. $29 is all you have to pay! AND… if you pay for a year in advance, Shopify will extend a 10% discount to you, so your monthly fee would be just $26.10! (If you pay for two years in advance, you can get a 20% discount from Shopify). NOTE: Payment processing fees apply to PayPal orders and to credit card orders.
Consider This: Look at what your monthly fees are with Etsy. Each month is probably a little different, depending on how much you sell, how many items you list or relist, and what your total sales were. For example, my monthly selling fees on Etsy are generally around $250-300 a month. That’s ONE MONTH! If I have those same sales on Shopify, my monthly Shopify fee is $29! That’s a HUGE difference in selling fees between the two platforms! The way I look at each month on Shopify is this: I have to sell at least $29 (or $26.10) a month to cover that month’s “rent” (fee). Any sale beyond that is money in my pocket. It’s not that hard to sell that much in a month, right?!
Traffic: Etsy is a marketplace made up of many individual shops. Because of this, Etsy does help generate some traffic to our shops. Shopify is not a marketplace like Etsy. Shopify is a platform for you to host your own website. Shopify does not direct traffic to your shop – that’s up to you.
Consider This: When you create your own website, you are in complete control. You decide what products customers will see when they land on your website – customers are not redirected to other shops and taken away from your storefront! Besides controlling the look and feel of your website, you also control how you market your website. Just like any other business, marketing plays a key role in your success. The old adage of “if you build it, they will come” doesn’t work with ecommerce websites. To have a successful website, you need to market and promote it. You can promote your website through your social media channels and through your blog, without having to spend any money. Of course, you could decide to have paid ads on social media, but you are still in control of setting your own budget. There are lots of ways to drive traffic to your website, and it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg (or anything at all)! Yes, marketing your shop does take time and effort – but so does anything when you want it to succeed.
Selling on Amazon, Pinterest, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and your Blog: When you create a store on Shopify, you have access to List products to sell on Amazon, Buyable Pins on Pinterest, a Facebook Shop on your Facebook business page, Buy Buttons on Tumblr and on your own blog, and you can tag products on Instagram – all at no additional cost! This allows you to get sales to your store from all these social media platforms – it’s really slick!
Consider This: On Etsy, you can pin your products to Pinterest or post your products to Facebook, but when someone clicks on those links, they are directed away from your social media sites. With Shopify, your customers can complete their purchase directly from their favorite social media platforms! All orders are processed through your store, and the integration is seamless and easy. Having Buyable Pins on Pinterest gives you a huge advantage over regular pins from your Etsy shop.
