00:00:00 00:00:03 yo what is going on everybody srikanasa
00:00:02 00:00:06 here so the top
00:00:03 00:00:07 five alternatives to shopify now in 2020
00:00:06 00:00:09 this is
00:00:07 00:00:11 one of the biggest things i personally
00:00:09 00:00:12 believe dropshippers should be playing
00:00:11 00:00:13 around with and that is simply using a
00:00:12 00:00:15 different
00:00:13 00:00:17 platform to host the website a lot of
00:00:15 00:00:20 people fail to realize that
00:00:17 00:00:21 shopify is not the only platform out
00:00:20 00:00:24 there which lets you create a website
00:00:21 00:00:25 specifically for e-commerce purposes
00:00:24 00:00:27 this list of five
00:00:25 00:00:28 specific alternatives to shopify which
00:00:27 00:00:31 i'm about to go over
00:00:28 00:00:32 are not only perform the same functions
00:00:31 00:00:33 as shopify
00:00:32 00:00:35 but in some cases a lot of these are
00:00:33 00:00:37 much faster and much
00:00:35 00:00:39 cheaper than shopify itself so if you're
00:00:37 00:00:40 really trying to find a way to lower
00:00:39 00:00:41 your cost
00:00:40 00:00:43 when it comes to running an online
00:00:41 00:00:44 business and continue drop shipping with
00:00:43 00:00:46 much
00:00:44 00:00:47 greater profits this is one video you're
00:00:46 00:00:49 going to want to watch until the end
00:00:47 00:00:51 because not only will i reveal these
00:00:49 00:00:53 five alternatives but i'll also be going
00:00:51 00:00:55 over some pros and cons related to each
00:00:53 00:00:57 but without wasting any more time let's
00:00:55 00:00:58 just jump right into it so the first
00:00:57 00:01:00 thing you'll have to do before you find
00:00:58 00:01:02 any type of success with any of these
00:01:00 00:01:04 platforms is to just destroy that like
00:01:02 00:01:05 button down below it'll take just two
00:01:04 00:01:06 quick seconds okay hopefully you have
00:01:05 00:01:08 done that but
00:01:06 00:01:10 the first platform on my list and this
00:01:08 00:01:12 is one of my personal favorites
00:01:10 00:01:13 is woocommerce now now there are several
00:01:12 00:01:14 different reasons why i personally
00:01:13 00:01:16 recommend woocommerce
00:01:14 00:01:18 let's go ahead and go over some of the
00:01:16 00:01:19 benefits of woocommerce before going
00:01:18 00:01:22 into the downfalls and cons
00:01:19 00:01:23 of woocommerce so here are three main
00:01:22 00:01:26 benefits the first one
00:01:23 00:01:27 is that it is very very cost efficient
00:01:26 00:01:29 to start with woocommerce in fact
00:01:27 00:01:31 i started one of my general stores with
00:01:29 00:01:33 woocommerce a year ago with about only
00:01:31 00:01:35 fifty dollars in applications and
00:01:33 00:01:36 everything as a whole if you compare
00:01:35 00:01:38 that to shopify i would have already
00:01:36 00:01:41 been down about a hundred dollars
00:01:38 00:01:43 even up to a 200 depending on what kind
00:01:41 00:01:45 of apps i added and the biggest benefits
00:01:43 00:01:46 of woocommerce compared to shopify is
00:01:45 00:01:48 that
00:01:46 00:01:49 even these apps have very very low
00:01:48 00:01:50 monthly costs
00:01:49 00:01:52 a lot of the main ones are less than ten
00:01:50 00:01:54 dollars per month which is why
00:01:52 00:01:56 woocommerce is such a great option
00:01:54 00:01:58 especially for those people who
00:01:56 00:02:01 are on a strict budget in addition to
00:01:58 00:02:02 having low costs for both starting and
00:02:01 00:02:04 running a store
00:02:02 00:02:05 with woocommerce everything is very
00:02:04 00:02:07 customizable basically
00:02:05 00:02:09 you can do whatever you want and
00:02:07 00:02:09 whatever is possible on your website
00:02:09 00:02:11 with
00:02:09 00:02:13 woocommerce of course this kind of leads
00:02:11 00:02:14 to another con which i'll be going over
00:02:13 00:02:15 very soon but the third
00:02:14 00:02:17 and most important thing is that
00:02:15 00:02:19 woocommerce is very secure
00:02:17 00:02:21 even though you have so much control
00:02:19 00:02:22 over your website you can do literally
00:02:21 00:02:24 whatever you want
00:02:22 00:02:26 woocommerce still has some plugins which
00:02:24 00:02:28 make sure that nobody can harm you in
00:02:26 00:02:30 any way and all of the data
00:02:28 00:02:32 that your customers give to you is fully
00:02:30 00:02:34 safe and secure but of course not
00:02:32 00:02:36 everything is good with woocommerce
00:02:34 00:02:37 there are two main cons when it comes to
00:02:36 00:02:40 woocommerce the first one is
00:02:37 00:02:42 it is extremely hard to customize the
00:02:40 00:02:44 themes with woocommerce simply because
00:02:42 00:02:45 you have so much control in fact i would
00:02:44 00:02:47 say that if you want to even use
00:02:45 00:02:47 woocommerce you should know a little bit
00:02:47 00:02:49 of coding
00:02:47 00:02:51 because you will need to be entering
00:02:49 00:02:52 some kinds of small pieces of code here
00:02:51 00:02:54 and there to kind of add
00:02:52 00:02:56 certain things and if you use one of
00:02:54 00:02:57 those specific themes where the support
00:02:56 00:02:59 team is literally non-existent
00:02:57 00:03:01 then you will have to figure out how to
00:02:59 00:03:02 do all these customizations
00:03:01 00:03:04 by yourself because this is not like
00:03:02 00:03:06 shopify where you can simply
00:03:04 00:03:07 open up shopify chat and start asking
00:03:06 00:03:10 questions but in addition the
00:03:07 00:03:10 applications also known as plugins with
00:03:10 00:03:12 woocommerce
00:03:10 00:03:14 could be limited when it comes to
00:03:12 00:03:16 compatibility especially if you use any
00:03:14 00:03:18 types of third-party themes
00:03:16 00:03:19 for your website so you'll have to be
00:03:18 00:03:20 really careful when it comes to
00:03:19 00:03:21 woocommerce to make sure that you choose
00:03:20 00:03:24 the right theme
00:03:21 00:03:25 where the support team is active and the
00:03:24 00:03:27 plugins that you use
00:03:25 00:03:29 for woocommerce do work with this theme
00:03:27 00:03:30 but otherwise this is my number one
00:03:29 00:03:31 recommendation
00:03:30 00:03:33 and something i would personally use
00:03:31 00:03:36 over and over again besides shopify but
00:03:33 00:03:37 this brings me to my next alternative on
00:03:36 00:03:39 the list and this
00:03:37 00:03:41 is click funnels now this is not exactly
00:03:39 00:03:42 like any of the other platforms here
00:03:41 00:03:44 because with the click funnels
00:03:42 00:03:45 you have the option of simply creating a
00:03:44 00:03:47 single product
00:03:45 00:03:48 landing page but one thing you want to
00:03:47 00:03:50 know is that single product landing
00:03:48 00:03:52 pages work the absolute best
00:03:50 00:03:54 when it comes to e-commerce in fact when
00:03:52 00:03:57 i used to use clickfunnels about a year
00:03:54 00:03:58 or two ago my average conversion rates
00:03:57 00:04:00 was around five percent
00:03:58 00:04:02 with my clickfunnels landing page this
00:04:00 00:04:04 is simply because again clickfunnels
00:04:02 00:04:05 is very customizable and it is an
00:04:04 00:04:07 all-in-one platform where
00:04:05 00:04:08 you can track all of the data coming in
00:04:07 00:04:10 you can add certain
00:04:08 00:04:12 customizations to the product page
00:04:10 00:04:14 itself and you can basically do whatever
00:04:12 00:04:16 you want and the same things as you can
00:04:14 00:04:17 do with shopify which is why
00:04:16 00:04:19 clickfunnels is another great
00:04:17 00:04:21 alternative but in addition
00:04:19 00:04:22 clickfunnels offers easy data tracking
00:04:21 00:04:23 you can easily connect it to facebook
00:04:22 00:04:25 ads or google ads
00:04:23 00:04:27 or any other platform you wish to use
00:04:25 00:04:29 but of course again like
00:04:27 00:04:30 the first one this also has some cons
00:04:29 00:04:32 one of the biggest cons with
00:04:30 00:04:34 clickfunnels that i personally faced
00:04:32 00:04:36 is the slowness of the click funnel
00:04:34 00:04:38 product pages no matter how many edits i
00:04:36 00:04:38 did on the product page to make it
00:04:38 00:04:40 faster
00:04:38 00:04:42 i always notiked that it was just a
00:04:40 00:04:43 little bit slower than the shopify
00:04:42 00:04:44 product pages
00:04:43 00:04:46 or the woocommerce product pages so this
00:04:44 00:04:48 kind of led me away from clickfunnels
00:04:46 00:04:50 but that does not make it a bad
00:04:48 00:04:51 platform to be using if you do hire
00:04:50 00:04:53 somebody from fiverr or
00:04:51 00:04:54 upward to make customizations for you
00:04:53 00:04:56 there's a very good chance that the
00:04:54 00:04:57 clickfunnels landing page could become
00:04:56 00:04:59 extremely fast but
00:04:57 00:05:01 the second issue with clickfunnels is
00:04:59 00:05:03 that there are no external features with
00:05:01 00:05:05 the platforms meaning you can't really
00:05:03 00:05:07 add a blog page or you can't really add
00:05:05 00:05:08 any external pages where a customer can
00:05:07 00:05:10 go to so
00:05:08 00:05:12 you're basically stuck with a single
00:05:10 00:05:14 product page and that product page
00:05:12 00:05:15 itself defines your entire store and
00:05:14 00:05:17 your entire brand so if you wish to sell
00:05:15 00:05:18 multiple different products or if you
00:05:17 00:05:19 want to start
00:05:18 00:05:21 a general store using clickfunnels may
00:05:19 00:05:23 not be the best way to go for you
00:05:21 00:05:24 simply because you'll be having multiple
00:05:23 00:05:26 different landing pages and it could
00:05:24 00:05:28 become extremely difficult to manage all
00:05:26 00:05:30 of these but nonetheless an amazing
00:05:28 00:05:31 platform to be trying in 2020 and
00:05:30 00:05:32 onwards
00:05:31 00:05:34 especially if you just run a single
00:05:32 00:05:36 product store or run niche stores but
00:05:34 00:05:36 this brings me to my third alternative
00:05:36 00:05:38 which is
00:05:36 00:05:40 big commerce now big commerce is very
00:05:38 00:05:42 interesting because this is one of the
00:05:40 00:05:42 newer platforms which i've kind of just
00:05:42 00:05:44 been
00:05:42 00:05:45 messing around with there are several
00:05:44 00:05:47 different benefits to using
00:05:45 00:05:48 big commerce compared to shopify number
00:05:47 00:05:51 one is that there is a lot of
00:05:48 00:05:53 seo assistance available you can easily
00:05:51 00:05:55 do seo for your products and when it
00:05:53 00:05:56 comes to google ads specifically
00:05:55 00:05:58 this is a really big help again with the
00:05:56 00:05:59 big commerce you can easily customize
00:05:58 00:06:02 the product pages as well
00:05:59 00:06:04 and overall themes which you do use but
00:06:02 00:06:06 the biggest next benefit
00:06:04 00:06:07 is there is no transaction fees with
00:06:06 00:06:09 using bigcommerce
00:06:07 00:06:10 you get literally whatever the customer
00:06:09 00:06:12 pays you unless you use a third-party
00:06:10 00:06:14 payment gateway such as strike but this
00:06:12 00:06:15 second option really makes bigcommerce
00:06:14 00:06:17 one of the better
00:06:15 00:06:18 options to go to compared to the other
00:06:17 00:06:20 ones and also shopify but
00:06:18 00:06:21 of course even with bigcommerce there
00:06:20 00:06:23 are some cons and some things
00:06:21 00:06:25 which would kind of drive me away from
00:06:23 00:06:27 it the first one is
00:06:25 00:06:29 there's different pricing tiers based on
00:06:27 00:06:31 the sales amount so the moment that you
00:06:29 00:06:33 hit the end of one specific tier
00:06:31 00:06:35 you'll be charged extra for using big
00:06:33 00:06:36 commerce and this could heavily add on
00:06:35 00:06:38 if you start doing more and more in
00:06:36 00:06:40 sales of course if you're doing a lot
00:06:38 00:06:41 in sales this shouldn't really be an
00:06:40 00:06:43 issue but nonetheless this is kind of
00:06:41 00:06:45 annoying when it comes to dealing with
00:06:43 00:06:47 a platform where you're hosting your
00:06:45 00:06:48 entire website but in addition to that
00:06:47 00:06:50 it is really difficult for those who are
00:06:48 00:06:52 not really tik savvy there are certain
00:06:50 00:06:54 customizations which require that you
00:06:52 00:06:55 know how to use the computer and you
00:06:54 00:06:56 know how to play around with certain
00:06:55 00:06:57 types of code so if you really find
00:06:56 00:06:59 yourself
00:06:57 00:07:00 not that tik savvy i would again
00:06:59 00:07:02 recommend staying away from big commerce
00:07:00 00:07:03 maybe going on to click
00:07:02 00:07:04 funnels or maybe even just stiking to
00:07:03 00:07:05 shopify because the first one
00:07:04 00:07:07 woocommerce
00:07:05 00:07:08 also requires that you're just a little
00:07:07 00:07:11 bit tik savvy but nonetheless
00:07:08 00:07:13 an amazing option to be trying in 2020
00:07:11 00:07:14 and onwards let's move on to our third
00:07:13 00:07:16 one and that is
00:07:14 00:07:18 3d cards now there's multiple different
00:07:16 00:07:20 benefits to 3d
00:07:18 00:07:21 cart one of them being that you can get
00:07:20 00:07:23 free email marketing
00:07:21 00:07:25 when you subscribe to one of the higher
00:07:23 00:07:27 cost plans now if you kind of compare
00:07:25 00:07:29 this to using clavio or any other email
00:07:27 00:07:31 marketing software you use with shopify
00:07:29 00:07:33 it is much cheaper in the long run
00:07:31 00:07:35 because with clavio as you get
00:07:33 00:07:36 a higher number of individuals on your
00:07:35 00:07:38 email list the cost adds up
00:07:36 00:07:40 significantly over time in fact one of
00:07:38 00:07:42 the higher options of clavio is up to a
00:07:40 00:07:44 thousand dollars per month
00:07:42 00:07:46 whereas with 3d cards sure cost of the
00:07:44 00:07:48 higher plants may be a bit high
00:07:46 00:07:50 but if you compare it to just using
00:07:48 00:07:50 clavio itself it is much cheaper so if
00:07:50 00:07:53 you really
00:07:50 00:07:54 rely heavily on email marketing for your
00:07:53 00:07:56 store i think
00:07:54 00:07:57 3d cart would be the perfect option for
00:07:56 00:07:59 you but in addition to that
00:07:57 00:08:00 3d card itself has more customizable
00:07:59 00:08:02 marketing features you can list all
00:08:00 00:08:04 kinds of sales discounts
00:08:02 00:08:06 all kinds of these things on your
00:08:04 00:08:07 product page directly which is not
00:08:06 00:08:09 really available on these other
00:08:07 00:08:11 alternatives which i've already
00:08:09 00:08:13 mentioned and in general 3d cart is much
00:08:11 00:08:14 much cheaper than shopify so
00:08:13 00:08:16 if you're one of those people looking to
00:08:14 00:08:18 just save some extra money at the end of
00:08:16 00:08:19 the month while getting the same things
00:08:18 00:08:21 done as you would with shopify
00:08:19 00:08:22 3d cart is the perfect alternative for
00:08:21 00:08:24 you but of course
00:08:22 00:08:26 there's some cons related to 3d card one
00:08:24 00:08:29 of them being there's slower third-party
00:08:26 00:08:30 app support when it comes to 3d cards
00:08:29 00:08:32 not all of the support teams for the
00:08:30 00:08:33 applications are very helpful so you
00:08:32 00:08:34 could find yourself
00:08:33 00:08:36 dealing with a lot of the problems by
00:08:34 00:08:37 yourself instead of having any type of
00:08:36 00:08:39 support
00:08:37 00:08:41 and this could cost you to lose a lot of
00:08:39 00:08:42 time but the most important con
00:08:41 00:08:44 which i personally believe would drive
00:08:42 00:08:46 me away from 3d card is that they're
00:08:44 00:08:47 just a lower number of themes to play
00:08:46 00:08:49 with that means you're stuck with just
00:08:47 00:08:51 the specific themes which 3d card
00:08:49 00:08:53 offers nothing else and if you don't
00:08:51 00:08:55 really like any of them you don't have
00:08:53 00:08:57 any other options but besides these two
00:08:55 00:08:59 cons 3d card is an amazing platform to
00:08:57 00:09:01 be using in 2020 and onwards especially
00:08:59 00:09:02 if you want the free email marketing
00:09:01 00:09:04 or if you want those customizable
00:09:02 00:09:05 marketing features at a much cheaper
00:09:04 00:09:08 cost to shopify but
00:09:05 00:09:09 let's move on to our final alternative
00:09:08 00:09:12 on the list and this is
00:09:09 00:09:13 using wix online site builder now this
00:09:12 00:09:15 one is a little bit interesting because
00:09:13 00:09:16 this is not directly a platform which
00:09:15 00:09:18 offers
00:09:16 00:09:20 e-commerce support but you can still
00:09:18 00:09:21 create an e-commerce website using wic
00:09:20 00:09:23 there are several reasons why i
00:09:21 00:09:25 recommend wix in the first place i've
00:09:23 00:09:27 personally seen that wix websites have a
00:09:25 00:09:29 much faster website speed compared to
00:09:27 00:09:31 any of the other platforms combined and
00:09:29 00:09:33 this is without doing any customizations
00:09:31 00:09:33 in the first place so that is a really
00:09:33 00:09:36 great benefit
00:09:33 00:09:38 that comes with using wix in addition
00:09:36 00:09:40 wix offers drag and drop customization
00:09:38 00:09:40 so not too difficult to be using and not
00:09:40 00:09:42 too difficult
00:09:40 00:09:44 to be playing around with especially if
00:09:42 00:09:46 you're really not that tik savvy but
00:09:44 00:09:48 there's easy access to support wix
00:09:46 00:09:50 support team is very helpful
00:09:48 00:09:51 they can really guide you step by step
00:09:50 00:09:53 with whatever problems
00:09:51 00:09:55 you're facing however there are a few
00:09:53 00:09:56 cons with wix as well
00:09:55 00:09:58 first one is there's lack of templates
00:09:56 00:09:59 available mainly because
00:09:58 00:10:01 it is somewhat of a newer platform
00:09:59 00:10:02 compared to these other ones
00:10:01 00:10:04 so you're again limited to whatever
00:10:02 00:10:06 templates they have in addition it is
00:10:04 00:10:07 difficult to do any type of seo
00:10:06 00:10:09 customizations with
00:10:07 00:10:11 wix websites because it doesn't offer
00:10:09 00:10:13 any extra features related to seo and as
00:10:11 00:10:14 a whole when it comes to e-commerce
00:10:13 00:10:16 there's just a lower number of
00:10:14 00:10:17 customizations available for the product
00:10:16 00:10:19 pages
00:10:17 00:10:21 and for the websites itself so if you
00:10:19 00:10:23 want any type of extra customizations
00:10:21 00:10:25 you may need to hire somebody or you may
00:10:23 00:10:26 need to directly contact the wix support
00:10:25 00:10:27 team so that they can help you with the
00:10:26 00:10:29 customizations but
00:10:27 00:10:31 this was my list of top five
00:10:29 00:10:33 alternatives to shopify
00:10:31 00:10:35 that you can definitely be looking into
00:10:33 00:10:36 in 2020 and onwards if you found any
00:10:35 00:10:38 type of value in this video

00:10:38 00:10:42 that subscribe button and i'll see you
