The basic Shopify plan is great for small businesses and individuals starting to sell online, but for large businesses who are making thousands of sales each week, Shopify Plus is an e-commerce platform offering exclusive features that are perfect for enterprising businesses like Kylie Cosmetics, Gymshark and Nescafe, they offer a higher level of customisation than Shopify.

Here are some features that are exclusive to Shopify Plus:

A dedicated account manager

Shopify Plus allows you to add unlimited staff accounts and enables additional permission settings, whereas the basic Shopify plan has limited staff accounts. With Shopify Plus, you can easily allow access to any number of team members and agencies to work on your online store. 

More theme customization with access to Liquid

Shopify Plus allows a much higher degree of customization than the Basic Shopify Plan, giving you access to Shopify’s theme language, Liquid. Using Liquid, you’ll be able to make changes at the code level for greater control over your online store.

More control over the checkout

Shopify Plus makes it possible to customise customer checkout experience based on shopping cart values and other factors.
