Over the last several months, you have witnessed our transition to a focus on eCommerce and WordPress. Of course, not every post is about an eCommerce plugin. We also continue to share information on WordPress plugins, themes, and services that are also vital components of any WordPress site or blog. (But sometimes we may slant it to eCommerce.)

Shopify is an extremely popular eCommerce platform. We feel we would be doing our readers a disservice if we ignored it. Last March, they announced their WordPress plugin that lets you easily add a buy button to any WordPress site with a few clicks. This allows your customers to securely check out from any page on your WordPress site.

With security, SSL, payment gateways and other eCommerce integrations, connecting to a secure platform may be your best choice. And let’s face it. How many of you are on WordPress.com? Or perhaps, you have that perfect site on Copyblogger’s Rainmaker Platform. Wherever you are, you have made that choice for a reason.

It’s really that simple. For some store owners, Shopify because it’s quite possible, over time, you may find out its the best choice for you.
