Bonus: How To Sell On Shopify With Cost-Efficiency

  • Get the Right Shopify Plan: check out if you’re not using all the features. This can also happen to the app usage, when you may be losing money for premium apps but in fact, only need the free package.
  • App Usage: make sure to use all the apps because you might be paying for some even when not using any features at all. Especially, be aware of multi-purpose apps (i.e. Vitals, Sales Rocket, etc.) which can charge more than you think.
  • Chargebacks: These might be a considerable drain on profitability and charge more fees. So, you should choose an app that avoids chargebacks to the store. Sometimes it only charges at 5%, but reducing it can make a big difference on your profit.
  • Transaction Fees: Avoid using many payment gateways at the same time. Most gateways charge by the transaction volume made on your store site. If too many payment gateways are activated, you may receive very high transaction fees.
