Is the Shopify payment gateway cool? How can I use my favorite gateway?
The Shopify payment gateway is powered by Stripe, and is pretty good. It can help get rid of the extra work needed to choose and configure a third party payment gateway provider. Not only this, but by using the Shopify-based solution, you will also get rid of the transaction charges, and the card percentage tax. Unfortunately, the Shopify payment gateway isn’t available in all countries, so there may be times when you’ll need to go ahead and configure a third party system to handle payments.
My Shopify store is loading slowly, what should I do?
I am not satisfied with Shopify. Can I easily move to another provider?
During our chats with the support team, we found that this is indeed possible. All data will be exported under .csv format, which is not truly used a lot these days. Not only this, but as the themes are developed using the liquid language, exporting them may be a bit difficult. Traditional software isn’t used by Shopify, so this is a factor worth keeping into consideration. You can move to another provider, but it won’t be too easy.
Do I need to purchase hosting and the domain separately?
Hosting is provided by Shopify free of charge, whereas the domain has to be purchased, at $13 for each domain. Domains can also be bought from other providers.
Can I add bulk products on Shopify?
Yes, this is possible by importing them from a .csv file.
