The best place to start for e-commerce
Overall, I think Shopify is the place to be if you are a small business with an online shop. It's functional, organized, and looks professional to your customers. It's not the most simple to learn, but it's not too complicated and once you figure it out it's smooth sailing.
I love the assurance that the site you build will look good and function well, and the back end capabilities as far as analytics, taxes, shipping, and customer information are totally on point. A great place to start for a new online business
I always wished the site building part was more customizable, I felt it wasn't flexible enough for the styles I wanted. I think the new versions of the Themes (the 2.0's) are a thousand times better, and so it's not really an issue anymore

Shopify: Best E-commerce Platform to sell large number of products.
If you need to sell more than 1,000 products, Shopify is the best option, but for fewer items, Wordpress is the best option because it allows us to do a lot of things as compared to Shopify.
Shopify offers over 100 mobile-friendly designs for website design. It offers a financial dashboard where you can track your sales and revenues. The dashboard allows us to easily track product orders.
You will receive unlimited bandwidth after purchasing any Shopify subscription (which can accommodate an endless amount of website visits). It includes marketing and SEO tools. Because numerous payment gateway interfaces may be implemented, you should have no issue collecting money from your clients.
Additionally, the 24/7 customer assistance is available if you have any questions about utilising Shopify.
Shopify is not recommended for SEO because it was intended as an e-commerce platform rather than a generic website platform.
We can only set three product attributes in Shopify: size, colour, and material.
Furthermore, because the data is kept on Shopify, we are unable to save a backup of your website.
And if we want to customise our site by changing the templates, we'll need to hire a web designer who understands the "Liquid" programming language.
The most significant consideration before utilising Shopify is that we cannot easily migrate the blog from another web development platform(like Squarepsace, Wordpress) . Migrating to Shopfy is really challenging.

Shopify The Hard Truth
I have been using shopify for over 2 years, and I have helped get fellow business friends to move over to as well. I made the change from square pos system and have not looked back. But my business model also changed so it made sense to make the move to a more online presence instead pops up and live auctions.
The Ability to integrate with other platforms so you don't keep all your eggs in one basket so to speak. Building your web presents takes a while a long long time. By having the ability to push your products to other platforms and make money is why I stay with shopify.
That there is not more sales channels that I could integrate with like depop, mercari, poshmark, etc.
