It’s not easy to figure out when it makes sense to make the switch. Most merchants make the upgrade so they can:
We’ve built a simple webapp that helps you calculate when it makes sense to upgrade. You can enter your store’s orders/month, AOV and current plan, payment processor and we’ll show the costs of each plan.
Based on your Shopify plan, we calculate your monthly subscription, fixed transaction costs and variable transaction costs. We then plug your store metrics into a scenario where it shows what it would cost you to run Shopify Plus.
You can also see how much revenue you can make from checkout upsells. This data is based on a set of 50 Plus clients at UpsellPlus. 6% is the average take rate and the AOV of the upsell is generally 1/4th of the AOV.
