Hire an Expert Shopify Development Company

We are a custom Shopify website development company with more than 18 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.

Template-based Shopify website 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:

  • Templates are often developed to include dozens of style and layout options, of which you'll only ever use one. This leads to a bloated codebase, which could negatively impact page speed and your ability to pass Google's Core Web Vitals.
  • Templates are often maintained by their original developers, who may eventually stop releasing updates.
  • Templates are often hastily designed and developed, leading to mobile layout issues or browser compatibility issues that must be addressed by your Shopify web design company.

These projects start at $6,000, and increase in price with product data and functionality requirements.

Custom Shopify theme development

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.

Pricing for Shopify Web Design Services

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.

Shopify Website Development Cost Calculator

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.

We have a large, onsite team of Shopify experts ready to help build out your future Shopify design.

Migrating an existing store into Shopify

We have ample experience moving ecommerce stores into the Shopify platform.

Here are some of the Shopify migration services we've worked on in the past:

  • Virtuemart to Shopify
  • Magento to Shopify
  • BigCommerce to Shopify
  • WooCommerce to Shopify
  • HTML to Shopify

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:

  • To what extent will product, customer, and order data need to be migrated?
  • What functionality does your existing website have that is missing from your Shopify store?
  • How prepared are you for URL changes and 301 redirects?
  • Are you using a WordPress blog that will need to be replaced?
  • Do you have experience utilizing the Shopify admin area?
  • If you have highly complex product data, will it be manageable within Shopify?
  • Are you familiar with Shopify's use of collections instead of categories?
  • How will the launch of your Shopify store be coordinated, and will you need access to the old website?

Shopify FAQs


What is Shopify?

Shopify is a leading cloud-based ecommerce platform that allows you to create and manage an online store. It offers a user-friendly administrative area, a vast collection of customizable templates, and an assortment of tools and features for managing payments, shipping, and inventory. With Shopify, you can sell products through multiple channels, including your own website, social media, and marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay. As a cloud-based ecommerce platform, it includes secure web hosting.


What is the process of developing a Shopify website?

The process of developing a Shopify website typically involves the following phases:

  • Discovery and planning: In this phase, we work to understand your business requirements and goals, define your target audience, and create a project plan.
  • Design: This phase involves the selection of a Shopify theme, or the creation of wireframes / mockups, to get a visual idea of what the website will look like in the end.
  • Development: This phase involves building the website using Shopify's platform, including customizing the theme, setting up the navigation, creating product / collections, migrating data (if it's a platform change), and integrating any required third-party apps.
  • Testing: This phase involves usability and user experience testing to ensure the website is functioning correctly and meets your requirements.
  • Launch: This phase involves publishing the website at a time that works for everyone involved. It is also when final verification and testing is performed of things like 301 redirects, security configuration, and performance metrics.
  • Maintenance and support: After the site has been launched, the next phase involves providing ongoing support and maintenance.

How expensive are Shopify developers?

Shopify is an incredibly popular ecommerce solution, which means there is a strong development community supporting merchants in the platform. For typical design, maintenance, and support services within Shopify, you should expect agencies to charge around $75-$125/hour for their time. However, if you require custom development of apps, that hourly rate will likely be much higher. If you are working on a limited budget, it might be worth the effort to find a freelancer willing to help at a lower hourly rate.

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
