Most Shopify expert partners and agencies don’t show their pricing on their website. This is so they can test higher pricing on larger businesses. We have all our pricing transparent and upfront, no hidden fees, hourly rates or unexpected bills. Get a clear picture of cost and deliverables from day #1.
If you need help with Shopify plus, we’re experienced in replatforming, data migration, custom feature and app development, warehouse and ERP integration, multi-store synching, multi-currency and payment gateway setup, multi-language, Google analytics, tag manager and data studio setup. Including full PCI and GDPR compliance.
Our theme launch process is split up into 3 phases. Design, development & quality assurance.
Typically a new brand with our Foundation Shopify package will take around 3 weeks for design, 3 weeks for development and 2 weeks for quality assurance. So 2 months in total.
If you are replatforming, adding complex custom features or launching a Shopify Plus store; project times will be longer and more varied.
Once we’ve scoped out the project with you, you’ll hand over copy and design assets. To start we need at least a draft of your copy and lifestyle image assets. If we’re writing your copy or sourcing imagery for you, then we simply get started.
We create your website designs in Sketch. Widely considered the leading design tool in 2019. We create designs for desktop, tablet and mobile devices. So you can see and understand the user experience across devices types and screen sizes before we commence development work. We include all the ecommerce best practices needed to ensure high conversion rates.
For design feedback and iteration we use Invision. Invision is the leading tool for design commenting and collaboration. No messy emails or time-consuming annotations, just click and collaborate.
When handing over design files to our development team we use Zeplin. This saves around 20% in development time and costs which are handed over to you in our pricing. Zeplin allows the developer access to machine written CSS for all design elements. Meaning a lot of time efficiency when writing your CSS.
We take responsive design seriously and test your code base in all the modern browsers across common device types. We use BrowserStack for robust remote browser testing and device emulation.
We have a 4 step quality assurance process for all Shopify themes. Two internal rounds of quality assurance for bug fixes and preparation for handover. Then two rounds of external quality assurance with you to ensure you’re ready to use and happy to launch. We Trello kanbans for development bug ticketing.
Because we know page load times are really important. Fast loading themes come as standard. If you use a lot of apps or are a Shopify plus store, we can also custom quote you for our speed plus service. For those looking for perfection in page load times.
Our themes development process includes setting up all the meta tags as needed for on-page SEO best practices. We can also include rich snippets for reviews and other metadata as needed.
