If you are new to the world of ecommerce then you may be wondering what terms such as Shopify, print on demand (POD), and drop shipping mean. In this article we will be covering what Shopify is and how it differs from Quadra. If you would like to learn more about POD, click here. For more information about drop shipping please click here.

What is Shopify?

If you have ever ordered something online from somewhere other than Amazon, chances are that store was hosted by Shopify. That's because Shopify is one of the leading services that companies use to host their sales websites.

Shopify allows its users to:

  • Sell Online
  • Sell In Person
  • Sell Online and In Person

Shopify comes fully equipped with back end tools that allow you to build and design your stores website, set up and manage products, look up analytics on product performance, and launch marketing campaigns to traffic consumers to your store.

One of Shopify's many features is that it allows third party companies to create apps that can be used by store owners. This is similar to the way when you buy a phone you can download apps that were not created by the company that manufactured your phone.

What is Quadra?

Quadra is a print on demand company that gives sellers access to unique print on demand products and Manufactures. Right now, Quadra is only integrated with Shopify as an app that can be used on your Shopify store.

Included with your Quadra account is an ever-expanding catalog of products that can be listed on your Shopify store and sold to customers all without ever needing to touch the product yourself. For anyone looking to start a business who doesn't have $15,000 to spend on start-up costs, Quadra and POD is a great way to do so!

What Support Needs That Involve Shopify Can Quadra Help With?

Quadra is designed to help anyone from any background become a successful seller. Because of this Quadra offers its premium users access to 25+ hours of POD training.

Quadra's support team is happy to help with any Quadra app related questions. However, Quadra cannot offer support if something on Shopify goes wrong unless it is an app related issue. For access to Shopify's help center click here.
