How much does it cost to sell on Shopify?

Created on

Have you ever found yourself wondering or googling "Does Shopify cost money to sell”? If your answer is yes, then you're at the right place.

Shopify is one of the most popular eCommerce platform that enables you to create your own online store. As it runs in a web browser, you can use the platform from anywhere as long as you have internet access.

As someone with the intention to start a new online business, it makes sense to want to know all the costs involved. There are multiple factors that will determine the cost of starting a store. From choosing a Shopify pricing plan to additional Shopify costs such as website building costs, transaction fees, etc.

Shopify offers three pricing plans that range from a basic option to their most advanced option

  • Best choice for novice online merchants to get a fully functional online store and start selling immediately.
  • Unable to reach an international audience as there is no way to adapt prices per country.
  • Credit card rate with Shopify payments is higher.


  • Best option for established online businesses that wish to expand their operations both online and offline.
  • Lower credit card rate, features professional reporting and an international pricing option.


  • For even larger stores that are still growing.
  • Advanced reporting, best option for merchants who want to conquer international markets, thanks to the ability to fine-tune prices per country or region.


  • For $5/month, allows stores to sell an unlimited number of products on an existing website, sell on Facebook and other sales channels, sell on messaging apps.
  • Doesn’t provide a fully-functional standalone online store.


Shopify offers themes with tools that let you customise your website’s colours, style, and layout. There are over 100 free themes or ~70 premium themes ($150 - $350) to choose from. Free themes may be more restrictive in both design and functionality, potentially resulting in thousands of similar-looking stores that customers will struggle to remember.

Domain name

Shopify includes domain names as part of all its plans, and store owners can choose from any of the myshopify.com domains that it offers for free. There is also a choice to pay for a custom domain (~$11 - $81/year).


While Shopify is a powerful e-commerce platform, it may not always fully satisfy the needs of every business. This is where add-ons and integrations come in. There are over 3000 apps (free & paid) you can use to enhance the functionality of your store on Shopify.
