One of the top questions that we get is, “how is Cartisan different than Shopify?” It’s an understandable question as Shopify is a popular e-commerce platform right now. So, how is Cartisan different?
Leave your computer at home
Unlike Shopify, Cartisan doesn’t require a desktop computer to create an online store. With Cartisan you just create an account and setup your store from your smartphone in about 10 minutes or less. It then only takes about 1 minute to add a product.
What design skills?
Designing an e-commerce website can be frustrating and resources intensive. Shopify will require knowing even the basics of e-commerce and website design to get started. At Cartisan, we have done the work for you. Just create an account and add your products and you’re ready to go!
Don’t pay upfront costs
Cartisan doesn’t charge you up front to get started. We charge just a small fee per sale whereas Shopify charges a minimum of $29 per month before you can even sell a product. This can lead to a lot of savings!
Harness the power of the network
When you create a Shopify store you are essentially creating an island that sits out in the middle of the internet and people only visit your island if you direct them to it. This requires marketing skills and money to get people to discover your store. Cartisan is a social selling platform, so not only do you get a link that you can give people to direct them to your store, your store can also be discovered by people that have come to Cartisan to shop for other products as well. Your store isn’t just an island in the middle of the internet, it’s part of a connected metropolis where every store benefits from other stores in the metropolis.
To get started on Cartisan, just download the app and create an account. You can have your store running in 10 minutes or less!
