Shopify pricing plans seem simple at first. But once you consider all the plugins and marketing software you’ll need -you will realize how expensive it can get

Shopify offers three pricing plans: Shopify Basic costs $29 per month, with 2.9% + 30¢ per online transaction.

The main Shopify plan costs $79 per month, with 2.6% + 30¢ per transaction.

Advanced Shopify costs $299 per month, with 2.4% + 30¢ per transaction.

Remember this is only the basic pricing network all shopify stores require a number of addon apps to make your store effective these apps start from $7.00 upwards to $100 a month depending on what you require.

In real terms the basic plan of $29.00 will cost you upwards of $150.00 to make your store effective before you sell any products marketing on google and facebook is extra this is just apps for your store!


When you start to add up all the fees you pay, you realise that selling on Amazon isn’t cheap.
