Until June 30th, 2018, Shopify Plus is giving away six free months on the enterprise platform if you make the switch from Magento. With this great promotion, not only will you save thousands of dollars, but also receive the awesome Shopify Plus features that merchants all around the globe rely on to run their business.
Hosting, Security, and Support
While Magento has been around for almost a decade, over the years the platform has not kept up with the ever-changing needs of fast-growing online stores. Yes, you can still get by with Magento. But if you could be doing better, with a different eCommerce platform; than why wouldn’t you?
On Magento, you have to choose your own hosting environment. Along with the costs that come with Magento Enterprise, you also have to find the right hosting partner—which can add up substantially. Shopify Plus is a hosted platform, so you never have to think twice about these additional costs.
But let’s say you do want to choose your own hosting platform, rather than let Shopify Plus take care of it. That’s fine, but you’ll be taking on a few other major responsibilities as well. The burden of security, for example, now lies entirely on you, the merchant. Because Shopify Plus is a hosted platform, you don’t need to struggle with the headache of ensuring your online store is secure.
And that’s not the mention the risk of running your own site’s security: that’s thousands of credit card numbers and other personal information being entered on your site every day. Because Shopify Plus is Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant, you don’t have to worry about security when you use the enterprise eCommerce solution—you can focus your efforts on other important matters.
Magento doesn’t offer any type of included support team with their program—you will be charged an extra fee for the extra help.t. On the other hand, Shopify Plus provides you with a 24/7 support team, via phone, email or chat, at no extra cost.
With Shopify Plus, you’re guaranteed 99.99% uptime, with unlimited bandwidth. Your store could have up to 8000 orders per minute, and you don’t have to worry about the site crashing. This is why such large brands, such as Kylie Cosmetics, Rebecca Minkoff and RedBull use Shopify Plus!
