The Top Performing Shopify Sites of 2019 (so far)

When it comes to business success you should ALWAYS be true to yourself. But that doesn’t mean you don’t watch what the leaders are doing to see if you can learn something or get inspired by their success. But how do you know which sites to look at?

“Best Shopify Websites” Is Not Enough

If you do a search for “Best Shopify Websites” more often than not you are going to get a curated list of Shopify sites – the sites that some person thinks are pretty or effective. But that’s not good enough. We want to remove all that subjective opinion and find the Shopify websites that are the actual leaders. Because – as we all know – the best-looking site is not always the one that wins the eCommerce game.

How Do You Determine the “BEST” Shopify Websites?

No entrepreneur in their right mind is going to share their sales revenue data with us – that’s just not going to happen. But we’ve gotten pretty good at this research thing, so we used a couple of website data providers and cross-referenced their results to discover the top Shopify websites as ranked by total traffic. Since most experts equate traffic ranking with marketing success, we’ll use that for our list.

Here is our list of the Top Five Shopify eCommerce Business Websites Right Now, along with some brief commentary on each.

Kylie’s never-before-seen concept disrupted the market and changed the face of the beauty industry forever. Kylie has since gone on to expand the collection into a full range of color cosmetics, including eyeshadow palettes, concealers, highlighters, blushes, accessories and more, as well as becoming one of the most renowned and coveted cosmetics brands of 2018.

Kylie Jenner – of the famous Kardashians – is THE most entrepreneurial member of her family by far. Her sister Kim may grab more headlines, by Kylie has both beauty and brains for business.

Honorable Mention – Funco

This maker of licensed toys and collectibles does a TON of business at Christmas. On Black Friday their traffic ranked at about #18,000 and would have been #3 on our list back then. But traffic is slower now, so they just missed the cut.

Our Sources for Best Shopify Websites

Traffic data is a very fluid and even volatile statistic. Things change all the time. We downloaded publicly available research data on February 24, 2019, to generate our list. We compared and cross-referenced data from the following sources: BuiltWith, Alexa, TheWebMiner, and LogicInBound. It’s possible that other Shopify websites have blocks or filters in place that prevent our analytics tools and sources from properly measuring results … but not likely. This is a pretty good list.
