Q: How does Paradime 360 compare to Wix, Square Space and others?
A: We introduced Paradime 360 to directly compete from a design, performance and cost perspective.
With these other tools, you’re locked to their platform. It’s called vendor lock-in. If you decide to leave, you will lose your website and all the hard work you put into creating it.
With Paradime 360, we’ll create a copy that you can take with you for a nominal fee. We can even migrate it to WordPress.
Q: Isn’t Wix cheaper?
A: Wix is more expensive, depending on the packages you choose. However, we also believe it’s better to support Canadian-based businesses, like Paradime.
Q: How does Paradime 360 compare to Shopify?
A: Paradime 360 combined with Shopify Lite offers a much more robust website experience and less expensive than Shopify Basic. It should be noted that Paradime is an official Shopify Partner.
Q: Is Paradime 360 based on WordPress?
A: Like Wix, Shopify, and other similar tools, Paradime 360 is based on it’s own high-performance code.
You’ll get many of the benefits of WordPress without the management overhead, complexity or need to manage updates.
Q: Why is Paradime 360 less expensive than WordPress hosting?
A: Paradime 360 requires significantly less overhead, resources, updates, and maintenance than WordPress. We’re then able to pass those savings onto you.
Q: Are there limitations when compared to WordPress?
A: Paradime 360 is the ideal option for landing pages and smaller websites and good enough for a majority of business needs.
However, if you require advanced features, we highly recommend one of our WordPress-based options. Paradime 360 does not support plugins.
Q: Is it fast? How’s the performance?
A: We host Paradime 360 on Amazon EC2 with Amazon S3 for storage. We also use Bunny CDN for our Content Delivery Network (CDN) to ensure the best performance and speeds from literally all over the world.
In fact, Paradime 360 will outperform standard WordPress websites.
Q: What are some of the other unique extras I get with Paradime 360?
A: We have an advanced Popup tool and Instagram-like “Stories” builder that can be added to your Paradime 360 website.
We’re adding many new features later in 2022, including multi-lingual support and native e-commerce (no need for Shopify or other 3rd party solutions).
Q: Can I add my Google Analytics or Facebook Pixel code?
A: Yes, we’ll help you with that before we launch your website as part of the initial setup.
Q: Can I add PayPal payment buttons or use Shopify Lite?
A: Yes, absolutely!
Q: Can I embed 3rd party tools, like JotForm or a ChatBot?
A: Yes, absolutely!
Q: How do I get support, if I need it?
A: Just fill in the form on our Paradime 360 support page and we’ll respond with 1-2 business days.
Q: Are emails included?
A: We assume you might already have a business email account. If not, we highly recommend signing up with Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace.
Otherwise, it’s best to use whatever email options are available by the company you’ve registered your domain with.
