it seems to be done to death depending on the niche.
But its an amazing alternative to ebay currently. Not too many hassles or issues.

I have two large sites running on shopify. They both turn a good product with very little admin.

Main reason I used them was to keep my development costs done and for the inter grated stripe payment gateway

In general the only difference with eBay and our own website as we all know is the traffic =\

Traffic is king.

i made a lot on shopify but recently they changed (couple months ago) where they limit on how many items can be uploaded per day. Before, it was unlimited and I was able to upload and delete items (where it sold and didn't sell) but seems there api couldn't handle the flood of imports of .csv etc or for some other reason. So I may move to doing my own at prestashop.

plenty of traffic on Ebay,but sales has been Very slow.
I have been selling on Ebay for more than 20 years,never seen such-either zero sale or just 1-2 orders per day.
It is like everyone has migrated to MARS,or they are not interested in collectibles,but something more practical,I sold a tire inflator for good money,which I paid $8 to my neighbor.

I used to have a Shopify webite, "Phenomenal sales".
4800 Sales Month
Google ads 1000. Month
Profit left 1400.Month

But I just run it down, due to no time as ebay sales were 20k a month, before I got banned.
I guess with me I can turn most things into gold, but maintaining and running them is the hard part, juggling all those business. Customer Service etc.... Bit hard for a 1 man band.

selling them means you are just perpetuating their lies. 99% of them are all sc4amm3rs.

but do you see this from time to time. In 20 years this month can't be the worst for you. I been selling on ebay for around that time. And i realize it's just part of the season. Maybe your items are just not doing good for this particular season. I know xmas for example all shops gets some sales one way or another.

Shopify just lets you design a website and they host it for you and let you run ads right? Not an actual selling platform

From what I read on their website shopify seems to let you choose whether you use paypal or stripe or amazon pay .
