Shopify Multi Store Vs StoreHippo Multi Store Ecommerce Solution

Build and grow your multi-store ecommerce business
with the best multi store ecommerce platform

Shopify Multi Store

Shopify offers a multi-store ecommerce solution through Shopify Plus, which is its most expensive plan. However, Shopify only allows you to create multiple stores each with its own products, inventory and orders. There is no central admin panel or a common database to manage all of these stores. Shopify multi store is thus more like managing multiple websites rather than a native multi store ecommerce solution with a centralised admin. 

To sync Shopify multi-store into a common admin additional apps are needed which are charged on top of the regular subscription. For creating multiple sub-stores using Shopify basic plan, each sub-store is charged as a separate subscription and additional paid apps and plugins are needed to sync the inventory, orders and products on these multiple stores.
