How Our Shopify Price Calculator Works

Our Shopify Pricing Calculator works by adding:

  • The selected Shopify plan fee
  • transaction fees for the plan (based on % of sales)
  • Payment gateway fees estimate

As you can see by selecting the different packages above and entering estimated sales and gateway options – different monthly fees and transaction fees apply. Some businesses spend very little on their Shopify plan and others spend thousands of dollars every month. You should spend some time calculating which is best Shopify plan for your business based on the functionality you require and your monthly estimated sales. Like with all things in live it’s not just a case of cheapest is best!

Calculating Shopify monthly costs has never been easier! Use the Shopify plans comparison table above and enter your estimated sales and gateway choice to find the best price point for your store.

Remember that if you’re using an external payment gateway (such as Paypal or Worldpay) then you’ll need to pay transaction fees for using those gateways in addition to the Shopify transaction fees. Our Shopify fee calculator doesn’t include these external payment gateway fees as they all depend on your location and sales volume/trading history. Rates typically range from 1-4% for external gateways and you can find a list of supported payment gateways by country on Shopify.

Why do Shopify charge transaction fees?

People new to the eCommerce ecosystem often get confused by Shopify’s pricing model – especially when it comes to their transaction fees. But it really makes sense when you think about it and spend time using the platform.

There is a very strong correlation between store sales and platform usage. The more transactions there are on a store, the more the store will be using the hosting service and support service provided by Shopify. It’s not 100% accurate in determining usage but it’s pretty close and on average correlates. So Shopify’s transaction fees are a charge for platform usage. The more you use the platform, the more you pay.

Some Shopify merchants think this is unfair but it isn’t really. Shopify pricing is pretty fair and they are a business – not a charity. The fixed monthly fee is there to cover the software costs which Shopify do a very good job of maintaining. The transaction fees cover the hosting/server costs incurred by Shopify. So when you think about it this way – the pricing model makes perfect sense. Some plans you pay more upfront and thus save on transaction costs.

As our Shopify Pricing Calculator shows, you can pay 0% Shopify transaction fees for your store if you use Shopify Payments. This means that if you accept debit and credit cards using Shopify payments you can save between 0.25% and 2% – depending on your Shopify plan.

If you need to use an external gateway (e.g. to use 3d secure via a gateway like Sagepay) then it may make sense to opt for one of the higher Shopify plans like Shopify Advanced or Shopify Plus to keep your transaction fees to a minimum.

Hoever if you’re just starting out those higher plans can seem expensive. In this can we suggest you opt for one of the lower plans and use Shopify payments in order to avoid the transaction fees from Shopify.

Why we built the best online Shopify fee Calculator?

We build this awesome online tool to help calculate Shopify fees for our clients. Nobody else had done it and it was desperately needed! Shopify pricing isn’t so easy and clear and we wanted to take the guesswork out of the equation for our clients. So we spent a rainy day coding this calculator and then spent another day ensuring you could find it in Google.

Nobody likes surprises when it comes to costs and anyone with half a business brain wants to know exactly what they’ll pay for a service. We found that many of our Shopify clients or potential Shopify clients were confused by the pricing model offered by Shopify – there were too many costs and fees. They also couldn’t find all the features of all the different Shopify Plans in one place – especially for the higher plan Shopify Plus. So we created a simple tool to calculate all the potential costs of using Shopify whilst comparing the features.

I’ve got a suggestion for how to improve this Shopify fee calculator

We’d love to hear how we can improve this Shopify fee calculator. Just drop us a line in the contact form below and we’ll discuss it at the next review with our Shopify Developers. our aim is to make this tool better and better every time!

How much does Shopify Cost?

Shopify has a number of different plans – all with a different monthly fee. The different plans have different features as shown in the table above and also different fees for transactions.

Before choosing a Shopify plan you should estimate your total monthly sales and use the above Shopify fee & cost calculator to ensure you’re aware of all the fees you’ll need to pay for your online store with Shopify. Remember – that for many merchants using Shopify Payments for accepting credit and debit cards is the most cost effective way of running your store and you should always assume that your sales will grow in the mid term.

shopify pricing table without calculations.

Is Shopify Worth the Costs/Fees?

We’re a leading Shopify design agency with an international client base. In our opinion Shopify is the best ecommerce platform for 2018 and beyond and well worth the monthly fees. We only consider other options at the enterprise level where there are cases in which Magento is more suitable. For 98% of online stores Shopify is the most cost effective choice.

The Shopify software (CMS) is a first-rate, dedicated ecommerce CMS. And the hosting is blazing fast via the Fastly CDN. Some people think that self-hosting a WordPress or Magento site is cheaper but this is always a false economy. Remember – you may pay less for (low quality hosting) but you’ll spend more on maintenance and your website will be slow for international customers. Maintaining security on a self hosted ecommerce site will burn your profits quicker than anything.

Shopify is absolutely, 100% the leading eCommerce platform of our time. It’s fast, reliable, is packed full of all the features you could ever need and it’s growing faster than any other CMS in the world. Large clients like Tesla, Lady Gaga, Budweiser, Wateraid, The Economist and many, many more….

Why do Shopify charge a monthly fee and a transaction fee?

Shopify charge both a monthly fee for the plan and a transaction fee. This transaction fee is waived if you’re using Shopify payments as the Payment gateway. This fee ranges from 0% (Shopify Plus) to 2% on the Basic Shopify Plan. See features in the table above.

This pricing structure is based on the idea that the more sales you make – the more you use the platform which makes sense if you think about it. More sales very often means more server and file usage as well as more support from Shopify.

You can avoid or reduce these Shopify transaction fees by selecting a higher plan or using Shopify payments.

Are there any hidden costs I should be aware of when using Shopify?

Shopify uses a slightly complex pricing model based on usage – but we wouldn’t say that those prices are hidden.

Shopify stores typically incur the following fees/costs:

  • Shopify Plan fees – which start from $9/month
  • Shopify transaction fees – which range from 0-2% depending on your plan and gateway.
  • Payment Gateway Fees – which usually range from 1-4%. With a typical rate being 2.6% + 30c per transaction. Remember – even Shopify payments has gateway fees as detailed in the table above. Even if your Shopify transaction fees are 0% (only possible when using Shopify Payments) – you must also then pay transaction fees for Shopify payments (which will depend on your plan.)
  • App fees – many stores use apps to extend the core functionality. These apps often have charges to pay for continued support and development. Some are free but most are paid. Most apps are developed by third parties and these fees are paid to them through Shopify. Not all stores need apps but many merchants chose to use them as they can make life easier and can be used to save time or make more sales. We can’t give a price here because it will all depend on your business needs. Some stores pay $0 for apps and others spend hundreds of dollars.

Aside from the above then you shouldn’t incur any other costs. Shopify support is free. If you need to hire a Shopify designer or developer you will need to pay for their services though.

We offer setup, support, design, development, marketing and maintenance for Shopify stores. And you can find our current price for Shopify development on our pricing page.

Who built this Shopify cost/fee calculator?

This Shopify fee calculator was built by Shopify Plus developers and Shopify designers at Liquify Web Design. We are official Shopify experts and build custom Shopify stores for clients all around the world – all day, every day of the week.

When was this Shopify fee calculator last updated? Are prices up to date with the most recent price changes?

This calculator for Shopify fees and costs was last updated in October 2017. If there are any pricing changes with regards to Shopify we will aim to update the code/content as soon as possible. We provide no guarantee of the accuracy but will do our best to keep the calculator up-to-date since we also need it from time to time.

happy with your shopify price calculation start selling now on Shopify.

Are Shopify likely to increase pricing soon?

This is a difficult question to answer. Nobody can know if Shopify pricing will change. We’ve been expecting a price raise on the following plans for some time: Shopify Basic and Shopify. We suspect they will be raised to $49 and $99 respectively at some point…but saying that we’ve been expecting it for a while and it hasn’t happened. Probably because of competition from other platforms.

We do not expect price changes for Shopify Lite for quite a long time as this plan is very new and it would be hard to see where the price could go to justify the features (it really is lite). We also do not expect Shopify Plus prices to change as they have changed already in 2017 and we’ve documented this in a separate article: How Much Does Shopify Plus Cost?.

Are Shopify Plan Prices Negotiable?

Excellent question. The short answer is that yes, they are. Usually however they are only negotiable when you’ve got multiple stores. If you’re thinking about opening new stores (for multiple currencies) then contact us and we’ll try to negotiate the best rate for you with Shopify.

Are Shopify Plan Prices the same around the world?

Shopify pricing is the same in all countries including the US (United States), Australia, UK, Iceland, Ireland, Denmark, Singapore, Norway, Qatar, Switzerland, Luxembourg, hong Kong and more. Prices are all charged in USD.
