In the world of e-commerce platforms, it’s relatively rare for a new entrant to come in at the enterprise level, shake up the market and steal retail clients from the established players, yet this is precisely what Shopify Plus have done over the last year or so. With the benefits of lower total cost of ownership and reduced time to launch, along with the reassurance of a fully hosted and managed solution, Shopify Plus is catching the eye of eCommerce leads across a wide variety of retail sectors.
