Looking to build an online store? Explore these options in custom and template-based Shopify development services to launch a new site!
We are a custom Shopify website development company with more than 19 years of experience helping ecommerce brands launch great stores.
To design and build awesome Shopify websites, we rely on our own in-house team of Shopify experts. We never outsource web design or web development projects, which means you can expect the same people who talk to you on the phone to be the ones developing your Shopify site!
As a full-service Shopify agency, we have graphic designers, ecommerce developers, and digital marketers ready to take your project from start to finish.
Read on to learn more about our custom Shopify development services.
Next is choosing how your Shopify development services will be started - through a template, or custom design.
The most cost-effective way to build a new Shopify store is to start with a pre-made website template.
There are thousands of Shopify themes available. Most even have an online demo to let you see the design before making your choice. Don't worry though, we'll help you find one that fits your brand!
There are a few downsides to using a pre-made website template, which include:
These projects start at $6,000, and increase in price with product data and functionality requirements.
If you aren't interested in a website template, we can build you a custom Online Store 2.0 theme within Shopify, instead. This is a common option through any custom Shopify web design agency.
This involves going through the process of creating design mockups that fit the unique look and feel of your branding.
Taking this approach allows you to see the design come together before our ecommerce web developers build out your website.
However, this process is time consuming and results in a higher cost for your ecommerce development service.
These projects start at $24,000, and increase in price with product data and functionality requirements.
The cost of our Shopify web design services is based on the amount of time you can afford to allocate toward the development of your online store. If you are on a tight budget, we recommend you look at a template-based Shopify website to save money. Alternatively, if customization and performance are of high priority, you could instead consider a from-scratch custom Shopify website that starts with a design mockup.
Answer a few simple questions about your project and our Shopify website cost calculator will recommend a budget for your Shopify development. For a custom quote, just call 800-796-8263 or send us an email.
For template-based Shopify developments, expect to see quotes between $6,000 and $12,000. If you need a from-scratch design, extensive functionality, or complex data migration the quote will be much higher.

Here are some of the Shopify migration services we've worked on in the past:
Before deciding on Shopify, it would be wise to discuss your project's requirements and goals with our team.
If your ecommerce functionality or data migration requirements are far outside the normal scope of Shopify it would be prudent to discover that now.
Our Shopify website development company can help you understand the scope of your ecommerce migration project before you make any decisions.
There are numerous factors to consider, including:
Custom Shopify designs are created specifically for your business, offering a unique look that perfectly matches your brand. On the other hand, template-based designs use pre-existing themes, which are then customized to fit your brand and preferences. You typically get exactly what you want in a custom theme, but are forced to make concessions in a template-based development based on the limitations of the theme and your budget.
A template-based Shopify design typically takes between 2-4 weeks, depending on your requirements and product data. Custom designs, due to their bespoke nature, usually take a few months to complete.
Absolutely! We ensure that all our designs are mobile-responsive, providing a seamless shopping experience for your customers across all devices. Please be aware that custom Shopify developments often have greater support for a wider range of screen sizes, since the development was handled from the ground-up to match your requirements.
We value your input and feedback. Whether you choose a custom or template-based design, we'll involve you at every stage to ensure the website aligns with your vision. In a custom Shopify design, we'll be able to accommodate an increased amount and depth of design requests.
Yes, we can offer data migration services to make the transition to your new Shopify website smooth and hassle-free. Data migration services can be extensive though. If you need to migrate vast amounts of data, or data that is stored in a custom manner, or highly complex data, the migration process is likely to be very time consuming.
Shopify handles the security of their platform. You can improve your own security by limiting the third-party apps you install, since each app often stores and processes data offsite. You can also remove unnecessary collaborator accounts to improve security. It isn't a bad idea to export your store data for safekeeping, too.
Definitely. Whether it's CRMs, marketing tools, or specific payment gateways, we can seamlessly integrate a wide variety of third-party apps with your Shopify store. We can help you implement those apps and communicate directly with the app developers if there are issues.
We offer a range of Shopify support services, including content updates, theme improvements, and issue troubleshooting.
Yes, we can provide basic training sessions to ensure you and your team can confidently manage and update your Shopify store. We do not provide development or marketing training though, just basic catalog and order management training.
