The main difference of our Mercurio CMS is its capability to expand and customize the solutions without restrictions. We developed the system on modern frameworks, so you can scale it as much as you need. You can first develop a small online store, and eventually develop your business on the same CMS to the marketplace, like Rozetka or Allo.

Shopify is a SaaS platform (software as a service). You are provided with software as a service. You need to pay a monthly subscription fee and use a set of features provided by the e-commerce platform. Furthermore, you can't refine something here on your own. SaaS solutions still won't allow you to become a full owner, and you can lose your online store.

I had a good experience developing an online store for us as clothing manufacturers. The team recommended to start the basic version of the online store at the beginning, and then, after the project starts to earn, to implement all sorts of chips that I wanted. I agreed and did not regret it. I am still developing my project. Everything suits. I recommend.

To create the site of the publishing house "White Owl", I turned to the Mercurio CMS team, as I had worked with them before and knew that if they do - everything will be ok. This time I had time and budget constraints, and the guys for a month without pain and difficulty made us a good working site that closes all the tasks we need. Also, what is important for me personally, it is easy and interesting to work with people in this company.
