Shopify vs. caShopping

Monthly Costs and Fees

When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, there’s a significant difference between Shopify vs. caShopping.

Shopify offers four different plans: Basic Shopify, Shopify, Advanced Shopify and Shopify Plus. The Basic Shopify plan costs $29 per month (and 2.9% +30 per transaction). The Shopify plan costs $79 monthly (and 2.6% + 30¢ per transaction). Advanced Shopify is $299 per month (and 2.4% + 30¢ per transaction).

Conversely, caShopping does not have any monthly costs to the seller. We offer a performance based platform. The only cost you pay is a percentage of every sell you make.


Shopify is great for small businesses considering their modest expectations in terms of sales and profits. However, if you are looking to increase your customer volume and transactions, you will need to switch to better solutions.

Growing an online store requires scaling many metrics and areas including handling traffic on your website. caShopping utilizes dedicated servers and an integrated system to ensure your expectations as a growing business are met through our online selling platform.

Product Customization

Through third party apps, Shopify has the ability to add an unlimited number of customization options to products. Customers can create products using features such as file uploads, dropdown options and text boxes.

However, caShopping utilizes eCommerce store integrating so your customers can personalize the product the way they desire. In addition to the standard product options (apparel, colors, sizes. etc.), our developers can create custom features depending on requests from our merchants. For example, if you are selling jerseys, we can integrate custom fields for team names, player names, numbers, etc. All of this comes as no extra cost.


Many love Shopify for their customer service and support with a rep answering the phone. However, often times, the rep will direct you to either a forum, self-help article or encourage the store owner to learn some coding.

Conversely, caShopping’s back-end infrastructure provides everything you need to do for a business. In addition, we have knowledgeable customer support reps available for merchants who have any questions regarding our caShopping platform.
