Narvar Vs Shopify

Narvar Vs. Shopify

In the ever-growing world of ecommerce, there is a multitude of platforms to choose from when it comes to setting up your online shop. This blog post will compare two of the most popular platforms: Narvar and Shopify. We’ll look at the pros and cons of each platform, as well as some key features that may be important to you when making your decision. So, if you’re wondering which platform is right for you, read on.

What are the differences between Narvar and Shopify?

Narvar, founded in 2012, is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company that provides ecommerce returns and reverse logistics solutions. Narvar helps retailers improve their omnichannel customer service by helping them manage their returns process across all buying channels.

Shopify, founded in 2006, is an ecommerce platform that enables businesses to start online stores. Shopify’s mission is to make commerce better for everyone, to help anyone sell anything. It offers its services through monthly subscription plans for the website building and hosting platform and domain name registration.

How are they different?

While both companies offer B2C return options, Narvar takes the category up a notch with its’ ‘try before you fly’ shipping to return solutions for items purchased online. Shopify provides a very limited ‘return policy’ section within its checkout process and in the email confirmation after the purchase.

Narvar works with retailers of all sizes, from billion-dollar enterprises to boutiques and up/comers. Shopify is designed for small businesses that want to sell online only; it does not support B2B or multi-channel sales. While Shopify can be customized, Narvar gives users access to a website builder where they can add their logo, colors, etc. In addition to an app store that contains reviews of Narvar apps built by third parties, it offers a community forum where users can share knowledge about best practices when utilizing its solutions.

Narvar offers white-labeled omnichannel returns management, while Shopify’s return policy is integrated within its checkout process. For Shopify users who feel that their returns policies do not need to be managed in-house, Narvar provides a B2B solution called the Returns Exchange (RX).

RX is an online platform where retailers send back refunds and exchanges for any item they sell using their existing ecommerce store(s) but want to outsource the reverse logistics to an external provider. This gives retailers access to more capabilities than if they were to use the Shopify’ return policy’ section, for example (e.g., which doesn’t allow for exchanges or refunds for non-physical items).

Shopify is a business that offers services through monthly subscription plans. Narvar is a software as a service company.

Narvar is an ecommerce platform for retailers to manage their returns and reverse logistics processes across all sales channels. Shopify does not support returns or reverse logistics, nor multi-channel sales. Shopify merchants can list products on Amazon, eBay, and Facebook — with Shopify POS being the only way they can sell outside of their online store(s). While both companies have app stores that contain 3rd party apps built by developers, Narvar provides a community forum where members share knowledge about best practices when using its solutions.

Both companies offer white-labeled omnichannel returns management capabilities; however, Narvar’s RX B2B returns exchange option gives retailers access to more functionality than Shopify.

What are the Benefits of Narvar?

Narvar is a brand experience company specializing in distributing packages and returns for online purchases. It allows e-commerce companies to return items quickly, easily, and matter-of-fact to consumers.

With Narvar, there are no complicated return labels or forms — customers print out the label, attach it to their return package; and drop it off at UPS, USPS, FedEx, or DHL (depending on which service they used). This company also has its own shipping network too.

What are the Benefits of Shopify?

Shopify is an eCommerce platform for business and also a shopping cart. It allows users to create their own personal online stores to sell their goods and services. The companies like the benefits of Shopify because it drives traffic, generate sales, and boosts brand value.

One good reason for using Shopify is that it has more than 70 themes that can be customized according to your taste, and then you can design your store with the help of these designs. Also, there is no need to hire an expensive designer when you have all this in one place at such a low price. You just have to choose your theme and get started on building your dream store. Many useful apps are available on the Shopify App Store to make your work easier.


As you can see, there are many different ecommerce platforms to choose from. The two we’ve highlighted in this article, Narvar, and Shopify, are great options with unique benefits.
