I want to launch a site and it seems that Shopify is very well integrated from POS, inventory and logistics management, ties to Facebook, Pinterest, etc, etc. The offering looks to be total turnkey. I am new at this. Recommendations and/or opinions would be most appreciated!
You are correct in your assumption that Shopify is a more turnkey solution. Although Wordpress has become a very versatile content management system, it is not a great solution for a novice.
Here's a review that I wrote about Shopify, if you are curious: https://www.cardpaymentoptions.com/credit-card-processors/shopify/
