I've done quite a few integrations with SBI websites and Shopify - excellent platform in just about every way possible - support, ease of adding content, pictures, navigation, SEO, etc.
Disclosure - I am an SBI Pros, specializing in eCommerce.
I would suggest you build your SBI site as planned with great SEO and then use the InfinIt option to add a sub-domain name for your Shopify store - great SEO tool to feed off your website domain name exposure.
Since you will be building your site first, that will get the search engines knowing your site and exposing it to the world. When you're ready to do Shopify with your site, it will be a better return on your investment with traffic already finding your site. As you know, or will learn, the search engines take their time before they really start exposing you in search results, so the sooner your get your SBI site and domain going the better .
The Shopify platform has great Apps and ability to add multiple currencies, shipping fulfillment, postage, languages, etc.
Good luck on your quest and let us know if you have any questions.
