I was told it is useful, but when I called customer service, after not seeing these function on the website, the rep said it does not do drop shipping, send products to other websites, or anything else that a friend of mine said it did. The customer service is horrible. As my friend recommended it, I would think it is legit but not the kind of people I would do business with. You can google "shopify alternatives" and find what are similar that are competitors. Supposedly you can manage all products on all websites in the shopify account, but then again, the rep told me everything my friend said was false and it cannot do. I do not think being on the shopify website would get much business as I have never heard anyone talk about shopping for stuff on there. I have only heard it mentioned as a place to sell products. There are lots of other places that are better and have more reputable impression. I sell mine on amazon. I tried Ebay but they are best for antique or other rare, hard to find products. When I listed my books on ebay they did not get views or anything, much less sales. Ebay customer service told me they did not add my products to the search results either so they were not supprise I did not get views or sales. That made it a rip off for me and I would think a scam since I paid for it to be added. Ebay never refunded me though they said they would. It has been a year and I still never got the refund. I do not recommend them either.
