START SELLING ONLINE
WITH A CUSTOM SHOPIFY WEBSITE!
Launching an online store can be both exciting and overwhelming. You know what you want to sell, but how do you create an e-commerce site that’s both affordable and effective? With a custom Shopify theme design and set-up we'll get you launched and on your way to success!

Quick, simple, cost effective. Gotta love that! Ease of use is key to our clients – as most would prefer to spend their time selling rather than figuring out a complicated cart system.

YOU DON’T NEED TO LEARN TO CODE:
The theme we create for you will have a lot of built-in support so that you can independently update your site anytime you like. If you like we’ll give you a couple of handy tips to make your layout skills stronger. You’ll become fast friends with the <p> tag and learn what <h1> means. But beyond that most everything is done through a really easy admin section.
NOTHING TO INSTALL AND HOST:
Shopify is a hosted cart – they keep everything on their super-fast servers for you (instead of one that you rent space on and install the software yourself). This means they keep a close eye on any service disruptions or other problems for you. And anytime they improve or upgrade the software it gets added automatically to your shop without anyone having to upgrade it.
LOTS OF GREAT FEATURES – BUT NOT TOO MANY TO OVERWHELM YOU:
You need to be able to quickly add and adjust products, process orders, keep track of stock and promote your items. Shopify has the basics beautifully covered and then some. Plus there are some very handy apps that we can add on if you extend its capabilities (like showing hand-picked related products).
Sure there are carts out there that have a gazillion features, one-time fee, or are open-source (free to use). But the compromise is the need for complex customization, expensive developer fees for any updates or changes, and a complex admin section that confuses a new shop owner.
MORE ABOUT ONGOING COSTS:
Shopify has a monthly hosting fee that starts at $29 (US) and of course I believe it's worth every penny for the peace of mind knowing your site is in good hands. Check out the different levels to see what is included - and feel free to ask us which might suit your needs. PS What you’ll spend on fees you will more than save on initial development and set-up costs (a more complicated cart will cost much more to have someone customize it for you).
Have a retail store? Go to tradeshows? All you need now is the Shopify POS which will tie your online and offline sales together seamlessly.
