Shopify is one of the more well-known names in the eCommerce software business, but there are other companies you can go with for an online store.  Today, we’re going to look at AmeriCommerce and compare it to Shopify and see if it is worth it for you to go with the less well-known AmeriCommerce.

Sometimes, when you’re deciding between two options and one is a bigger name, they’re really only better because of their brand name. But this is not the case with Shopify. As you can see, Shopify and AmeriCommerce are similarly priced, but Shopify gives you so much more. For example, with Shopify, you get unlimited products, no limit to the traffic your website gets, more payment gateway options, etc. Basically if you want your store to grow – and why wouldn’t you – Shopify is the best option for you to grow and stay paying a reasonable amount of money. The only way AmeriCommerce is better is if you have a very large staff, because they do give you unlimited staff accounts. But if you are starting out that probably isn’t the case. So I would definitely go ahead and sign up with Shopify instead of AmeriCommerce.
