Though the tool's users experience a return on investment, the runtime reliability needs improvement
Fabric Commerce Platform serves as a B2B marketplace. The tools serve as a marketplace for physical products for B2B activities, including wholesale. It is not a typical e-commerce platform Fabric Commerce Platform is used in my company to create modules as it is a PIM software in our company's…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The solution's most valuable feature stems from its usefulness as a PIM software, CMS, and storefront."
"The most valuable feature is its strong SEO capabilities."
"For the initial setup phase, many online tutorials are available, making the process easy."
"The solution is highly customizable for our store’s e-commerce needs. We don't need to write any code as all the required features are already inbuilt. The front end can be easily customized. Moreover, this tool offers built-in integrations with payment gateway, messaging services like SMS and email, and logistics integration."
"The product has a few free-to-use features. It is easy to navigate and has good visuals as well."
"Shopify can be used without any coding knowledge."
"It has a brilliant inventory system to help you manage your store."
"Shopify provides an easy to use service at the backend that includes product upload, customer service, team settings, and team customization."
 

Cons

"The runtime reliability of the system is a little bit challenging."
"Many of our clients complain because it's costly and not an open-source."
"The order processing and saving of the changes for the product should have automatic functioning."
"I have many clients that want to sell their products to the wholesale market, and Shopify currently does not have that kind of feature."
"There are some areas where improvements could be made. Currently, the platform only supports three product variants, and having the option for more variants would be beneficial. Additionally, we have to rely on external plugins for reviews and ratings, which could be more convenient if they were built-in."
"I would like to see a feature that allows us to access all of the platforms in Shopify, like Facebook and Instagram messages, so we can easily reply to connect to our customers."
"If you consider an enterprise-level application with a lot of customization, Shopify can be problematic to use."
"It could benefit from improving its user-friendliness for non-coders, perhaps by offering easier template-building options."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I don't think our company uses enough functionalities of Fabric Commerce Platform. I think that tool offers a better value proposition for B2C models."
"Depending on the client's requirements, they can choose either the basic plan or the premium plan."
"This is the only platform to enforce its own transaction fee unless you use Shopify Payments Content, which doesn’t automatically reformat when you switch themes."
"The pricing of the solution is economical. The enterprise version is more expensive, however, we do not use it. We pay for the license on a monthly basis and there are payment gateway charges associated with transactions, typically around two percent or as applicable."
"They have various plans including ones that are priced at $29 per month, $79 per month, and can go up to $300 per month."
