Jimdo vs Shopify in our news:

2021. Google partners with Shopify on online shopping expansion



Google has announced it’s partnering with Shopify, giving the e-commerce platform’s more than 1.7 million merchants the ability to reach consumers through Google Search and its other services. The integration will allow merchants to sign up in just a few clicks to have their products appear across Google’s 1 billion “shopping journeys” that take place every day through Search, Maps, Images, Lens and YouTube. The news follows a series of updates to Google Shopping resulting from Amazon’s increased investment in its own advertising business, which threatens Google’s core ads business.


2021. Shopify expands its payment option, Shop Pay, to its merchants on Facebook and Instagram



Shopify has partnered with Facebook to expand its payment option, Shop Pay, to all Shopify merchants selling across both Facebook and Instagram. This is the first time Shop Pay will be made available outside of Shopify’s own platform, and represents a significant expansion for the e-commerce platform’s payments technology. Shop Pay will first become available to all Shopify merchants using checkout on Instagram in the U.S., and will then be rolled out to Facebook in the weeks that follow. Prior to this launch, Facebook’s platform has been one of Shopify’s most popular sales and marketing channels for merchants


2018. Shopify now allows to fulfill orders directly from your phone



Shopify app for iOS and Android now supports buying and printing shipping labels from your phone. You can create and print labels immediately, or save them to print later, and you can manage your entire shipping workflow from the palm of your hand. You also get full access to everything you currently use in Shopify Shipping, including our low rates with supported carriers (UPS, DHL Express, USPS, and Canada Post) directly in the Shopify app.


2017. Jimdo now allows to add Search Bar to business websites



Website search makes it even easier for your visitors to find exactly what they’re looking for on your website. This new feature is now available for all JimdoBusiness websites using Jimdo Creator. You can add it as an element wherever you want on your website. Once you’ve added the search function, you can search for any items or words in your website. You can also customize the placeholder text in the search bar (“Search …” is the default) but you can just as easily change it to “Looking for something in particular?”, as well as determine which areas of your website to include in the search results.


2017. Shopify adds new shareable discount links



To help you make the most of the holiday shopping bonanza, Shopify added a simple new function that will help you reach out and pull those deal-hunters right into your store. Shareable Discount Links direct customers to your homepage and automatically apply a discount code to their cart. Shareable Discount Links eliminate the need to find or enter a code, and give you an enticing invitation that you can send to customers via email, Facebook, or other social media.


2017. Jimdo adds Booking app



If your Jimdo Creator website offers services, events or courses that require booking an appointment, our new Jimdo Booking app for Android is perfect for you. You can now create a booking calendar via your smartphone that is displayed to visitors on your website. Once you set up your calendar, visitors can book your services directly on your Jimdo website. As soon as someone books one of your offers, you will receive a push notification directly in the app so you’re always up to date with how many people have made a booking.


2017. Shopify Mobile adds Discounts, Product Collections, Live View, and More



Last year during Black Friday Cyber Monday, more Shopify merchants logged in on mobile than on desktop. That’s why this year the developers focused on making key features you need for your #BFCMWin available on your phone or tablet. You can now create, modify, and manage discounts from your phone and tablet. Another new feature - Product collections is one of the best ways to help your customers find what they’re looking for quickly. Now, you can set up and modify Product Collections on mobile in the Shopify app. And with Live View on mobile, you can keep track of your store’s performance in real-time, which is especially handy during high-traffic days like BFCM weekend.


2017. Shopify integrates with UPS



UPS has become a new option in Shopify Shipping, so U.S.-based Shopify merchants can now offer a best-in-class delivery experience, just like enterprise retailers. With UPS and Shopify Shipping, you’ll get competitive rates of up to 52% off list rates, just in time for the holiday season. No matter how big or small your business is, you can now access UPS’ guaranteed delivery date shipping options at industry-leading rates. UPS offers Shopify merchants exclusive discounted rates, especially for heavier packages. Shopify will cover any peak surcharges on UPS Ground shipments during the holidays.


2017. Shopify introduced real-time visitors monitoring



Shopify now allows store owners to watch the activity taking place in online store, as it happens. With Live View, you can now keep track of how your store is performing in real-time right from the palm of your hand. You can track how many visitors are on your site right now and where in the world they are, watch visitors become customers and celebrate sales as they happen, monitor daily total visits, orders, and sales, keep a pulse on your purchase funnel as visitors add items to their carts, start the checkout process, and successfully make purchases, see how many pages are being viewed right now.


2017. Shopify integrates with eBay



Shopify and eBay have partnered to give you access to eBay’s customer base of over 171 million buyers, and this new sales channel is ready to use. Just like Shopify’s partnerships with Amazon, Facebook, and other top selling channels, the new eBay sales channel effortlessly syncs with your Shopify store. Merchants based in the U.S. and selling in USD can easily list and sell on eBay while conveniently managing the fulfillment and inventory process within Shopify. Simply add new products to Shopify and sync your product information in the eBay sales channel to create an eBay listing. You'll save time manually entering product information and be able to manage your entire product catalog for your online store, retail store, eBay listing, and all other sales channels, all from one place.
