As you know, Shopify guarantees they’ll never lose your data. They complete periodic backups of all sites and data, in conjunction with a comprehensive security protocol, both physical and infrastructural. If anything were to ever happen, you can rest-assured that they’ll have the contingencies in place to keep your site up.
The Scary Limits of Shopify Backups
As you know, Shopify backs everything up, but they cannot restore any of your store, blog, page, etc data for you, in the event that a member of your team (or God-forbid a disgruntled employee) accidentally deletes stuff from your store (i.e. “I accidentally deleted 1,000 products!”)
In these cases, Shopify recommends the Rewind app which backs up all that content and makes it easily-restorable.
Above: Rewind’s $9/mo plan is all most stores need, as it covers up to 200 orders per month. So if you sell fewer than 200 orders per month, bite the bullet, pay for their $9/mo plan, and you can stop reading here. 🙂 If you make more than 2,000 sales per month, then read on.
Shopify Backups for Stores That Have 2,000+ Orders per Month
If you have more than 2,000+ orders per month, the Rewind prices leap quickly – to more than $299+/mo once you reach 8,000+ orders/mo!
