I have made an entire ecommerce marketplace using Webflow + Udesly + Shopify.
In brief, if you’re looking to build something “easy” it’s great. If you’re looking to do what I did and build a “marketplace” - it’s extremely time consuming, fiddly and requires:
1.) Patience - Each time you have to export, upload to udesly, convert, upload to shopify. Each version change takes between 10-15 minutes and a further 5 minutes on customising the theme. I can promise you, it’ll drive you nuts! n.b. I have uploaded around 40-50 different versions thusfar I am still looking on a solution to make this less painful.
2.) Attributes - To get specific CMS elements to be picked up via Shopify - custom attributes on elements are required. Each have their own values/settings, Udesly has great documentation and the support team are genuinely very helpful HOWEVER, it’s very easy to miss one , = ’ and then you do an upload, it’s missing then problem 1 occurs again.
3.) Shopify Apps - A lot of the Shopify apps are designed for liquid / shopify templates, you will either have to manually install or get the developers of the app to help you. Some will work first time but this is rare and I wouldn’t count on it. You’ll need to incorporate this into your build time IF you’re using apps.
4.) Positives - With all that being said, if you are patient, aren’t able to code (or limited) like myself and like Webflow design - it’s amazing. The udesly team have thought about a number of things to ensure you can pull CMS elements in easily. Once you get your head around udesly attributes, it’s pretty quick.
