Why should you migrate from Salesforce to Shopify
As platform expenses soar and flexibility remains limited, more and more brands are exploring alternatives to Salesforce Commerce Cloud's outdated digital commerce solution. These brands are increasingly dissatisfied with the slow and expensive development processes that hinder their growth. Instead, they are in pursuit of a highly scalable platform that not only empowers but also accelerates their expansion efforts.
For a considerable number of Salesforce Commerce Cloud users, Shopify Plus emerges as the ideal solution, primarily due to its adaptability, cost-effectiveness, and remarkable speed-to-value proposition. Notably, esteemed brands like The Cambridge Satchel Company, Fenty Beauty, and Crabtree & Evelyn have already made the switch from Salesforce Commerce Cloud to Shopify Plus, reaping the rewards of these advantages.
