Expert Shopify Developers
Developing a Shopify Store to meet your ecommerce needs.
Starting an online store can be overwhelming. From product pages and payment gateways to email marketing and shipping, how do you make sure everything looks stunning and works seamlessly and on all devices? Not to mention managing all the apps, integrations, functionality and usability features needed to maximise sales.
The Hope Factory team is first class. They made the process of building our Shopify site and going live very simple. We highly recommend them as a Shopify developer for your ecommerce website.

Our Shopify Development process
With 14+ years in the industry, 360+ Shopify builds and 183+ verified reviews, our team of expert Shopify developers has perfected an end-to-end process that is streamlined, proven and personalised to you. We’re proud to work with businesses big and small, from boutique brands like Palmer & Penn to ecommerce leaders like Patagonia.
1. Project Planning
To kick off, we get together with your team to confirm objectives, set timeframes, collate all the information we need and define the key steps in the Shopify development process from start to finish. That way, everyone knows what’s needed and what to expect from day one.
2. User Experience Design
Next up, our expert Shopify designers will collaborate with you to craft your vision of your online store. Our team will research, select and tailor the ideal Shopify theme that meets the requirements of your branding, products, functionality and long-term vision. We’ll provide a recommendation and rationale for the theme design as well as any refinements needed to make sure it’s a great fit.
3. Ecommerce Setup
To build the engine room of your store, we'll configure the ecommerce essentials including shipping information, point of sale, product data feeds, social media integrations, marketing apps and payment gateways like Google Pay, Apple Pay, PayPal, Amazon Pay, Afterpay, Zip and Laybuy.
4. Shopify Development
Unifying the design and functional elements, our expert Shopify developers look after everything from product pages, blogs, navigation and branding to notifications, Facebook/Instagram Shopping, Instagram feeds, tracking codes, and integrations like newsletters and more.
5. Train, Test & Launch
While Shopify is very easy to use, before we handover the keys we’ll train you on how to manage your website content, inventory and orders, and provide instructional videos on key functions. Finally, we’ll fully test the site functionality and, once everyone is happy, we’re ready to go live!
6. Responsive Support
Beyond building your website, what sets us apart is our passion for partnering with clients to help them successfully build and grow ecommerce businesses. From basic tech support through to performance reviews, new features and site optimisation, we’re here for ongoing development, help and guidance.

Jo Mercer offers online shoppers a premium experience
Already well established, Jo Mercer engaged The Hope Factory to optimise their sales process and usability.

Sole Motive inspires fashion-clad runners
As an innovator in the running and fitness space, it was more than selling products. The site needed to educate runners on making the right fitness choices and feature upcoming marathons. After a cohesive homepage design and custom header layout, the result was a highly intuitive site that closely reflected the brand’s passion.Visit the store

Reviews From Previous Shopify Stores Builds
I engaged The Hope Factory to upgrade our web store and increase our web presence. The work done was of an excellent standard and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend using The Hope Factory for any online work required. We will definitely be using them again in the near future for Birkenstock Hahndorf.
Phil, Birkenstock Hahndorf
From concept, through to development and implementation, they were always accessible, quick to respond, and provided guidance on how to maximise our Shopify store. The Hope Factory is always responsive, and goes that extra step to keep the Shopify store relevant and up to date.
Carolina Barua, Henry Bucks
Very helpful and accommodating throughout the process. Easiest web development we have had.
Sam Gordon, Robert Gordon Australia
The Hope Factory has been a wonderful partner for us during the development and launch of our new Shopify website. The project had lots of twists and turns, through no fault of theirs, yet they remained calm, enthusiastic and committed to seeing the job through. I have no hesitation in recommending The Hope Factory and am sure that I will call on their services in the future myself.
Scott Haywood, Tontine Bedding Australia
As we were new to Shopify they helped us choose the right theme, and did some great customisations so that we have ended up with a website that our staff love. We have a number of unique features that were implemented with ease. I would highly recommend The Hope Factory if you are after a great Shopify website and a smooth and enjoyable development experience with professionals.
