Frequently Asked Questions About Developing on Shopify

The Shopify platform is built to be highly flexible and scalable to grow and change with your business. While the core functionality is built into the system and your theme selection defines the initial visual interface, both design and functionality are highly configurable.

Plus the Shopify app store has a huge selection of options to customise everything from store design, marketing and inventory management to sales conversions, customer support and reporting.

As with any web development and design project, timeframes will vary according to complexity, client readiness, budgets, feedback and content development requirements. For example, migrating an existing store with all the information ready to go will be much faster than starting a new product or business from scratch. However, typically the bulk of our Shopify development projects will take approximately 8 – 10 weeks from beginning to end.

Get in touch with us and we can give you an indication of timelines based on your requirements.

After build and launch, Shopify is designed to be easy to use for business owners without requiring any specific technical knowledge. You can add pages, update products, install plugins, manage inventory and process orders, all using the in-built tools. There are lots of helpful resources and videos available to step you through each function.

The Hope Factory provides training with all our website builds and are also here for ongoing support as needed. Shopify is cloud-based and hosted, so you can operate your store from anywhere with internet access.

Yes, if you have an existing store on another platform you can migrate to Shopify, and The Hope Factory are experts in Shopify migrations. Beyond simply moving the existing store to a new platform, the migration process is an ideal time to audit your current processes and improve speed, flexibility, features, design and user experience to optimise sales.

We’ve helped many brands migrate from other e-commerce platforms like Magento, WooCommerce, Neto, WordPress and several others.

Used by many thousands of retailers big and small across the world, Shopify is an end-to-end ecommerce solution that is designed to help you start, grow and manage your online store. While the design can be fully customised to match your brand and products, it comes in-built with the core ecommerce functionality you need to manage products, inventory, payments, and shipping. It also allows you to sell in multiple places, including web, mobile, social media, online marketplaces, brick-and-mortar locations and pop-up shops.

The standard Shopify offering is best for small-to-medium-sized businesses, whereas Shopify Plus caters to larger enterprise-level companies. The two services operate the same way, but Shopify Plus has more advanced features and functionalities than the regular Shopify platform. 

Shopify Plus is created for enterprises that want more from their ecommerce platform and enables them to take their store to the next level. It’s incredibly flexible but still user-friendly, it enables great speed to market for new projects, it has dedicated apps, flexible API calls and much more. It’s the most cost-effective platform for big companies and the enhanced user experience it offers has convinced plenty of big brands to leave other ecommerce platforms and  migrate to Shopify Plus.
