Shopify App Development Company
We are a registered Shopify Partner and developer.
Since 2015 we have worked with companies large and small to optimize their Shopify commerce store. If you are currently a Shopify eCommerce small business customer, or thinking about becoming one, we’d be happy to answer questions about Shopify core features as well as the benefits of the native integration into social media and large platform of third party Shopify apps.
We’ve worked with clients on the Shopify platform since 2015 and are very familiar with the platform. 😉
Custom Shopify Storefront Apps
Shopify provides an API, a fancy way to say it provides a framework to build a custom application to do whatever it is you need it to do and bridge that into your store.
There are thousands of Shopify Theme that can be purchased from third parties, we’ll be happy to walk you through them – can’t find what you need? If you can’t find a Shopify Theme that will get the job done we’ll be happy to custom code your theme. We want you to be 100% happy with a theme that reflects your companies style and works well for your customers.
It may sound odd for us to state this, but you don’t necessarily need custom programming to build our your Shopify store. In 2016 there were less than 5,000 app on the Shopify Marketplace – today there are tens of thousands that do everything from email marketing to social media post, so it’s possible a solution exist already on the Shopify Marketplace. However. Cost.
When you install an app from the marketplace they often start out free. Overtime as your store advances you may opt for the paid version that charges you a nominal monthly fee. This app takes care of images, that app takes care of social media and so on. Shopify makes it convenient because they wrap up all these little app fees into 1 monthly fee they charge directly to your card. But as you add app the fees add, and soon you could have a monthly fee of thousands of dollars and the only way to figure out what’s costing what is to go through your apps one-by-one.
However, it’s possible to bring all of those charges down into a fixed cost investment with planning and working with a Shopify development company to break out the features of this misc. apps you like and build out a single optimized Shopify website. For example:
I eCommerce site “Billy’s Bike” has separate apps for newsletter, social media posting, YouTube video, mobile app for phones, rewards program and affiliate marketing each app could charge as little as $50 to $2,000 per month depending on the size of Billys store.
Once a company builds to a Shopify Plus sized company the should consider consolidation. Instead of cost growing and dependencies on multiple different companies to get the KPI’s of the company to perform a company should consider a fixed cost option of having all those apps custom coded into a platform the company owns and controls.
We’re passionate about developing for the needs of our clients and pushing the boundaries of today’s technology. Located in Birmingham, Alabama, we bring southern charm and style into everything we do.
