Shopify sellers shouldn’t feel limited to selling on one webstore. Merchants can grow by selling on multiple storefronts used to diversify their brand.
However, managing multiple Shopify stores comes with its own set of challenges. To some merchants, the idea of managing two unique stores sounds overwhelming and difficult.
We don’t want you to feel that way! It shouldn’t keep you from expanding your business.
In this post, we’ll explain why you should sell on multiple stores, the challenges of doing so, and then best practices to overcome those challenges. (more…)
As merchants grow their business, so does their technology stack. Most merchants have multiple software systems to run their business to help with everyday tasks like inventory management, order processing, shipping, accounting, payment processing and customer management. The list keeps going.

Many Shopify merchants don’t realize that operating with siloed software systems is holding their online business back. While having an ERP like NetSuite is an important investment in your operations, so is integrating it with Shopify and Shopify Plus.
