About the Shopify Platform
Shopify is a hosted solution eCommerce website and shopping cart application. While a popular platform, it does have pros and cons like most shopping cart platforms do. It’s currently one of the most popular eCommerce platforms, powering over 23% of online stores.
Shopify provides a set of initial templates that can be customized to your branding standards and does have capabilities to sell digital files and standard products. Shopify is a hosted solution, meaning it runs on their servers and is hosted by them. A benefit of Shopify is users can change the design of the website without much technical knowledge, but HTML and CSS can be edited as well.
At Saint Boss we can help guide you in the right direction, deciding if Shopify is the best solution for your business by looking at your goals, needs, and budget. Shopify may or may not be the right platform of choice depending on the level of customization you need and your project goals.

Combining Ecommerce & Marketing

Expert website development services from our skilled team of developers.
Once the website design has been approved, the build stage begins. A development plan will have been written up to keep things on track and provide key information.
When the build is complete, we test it on all major browsers and devices to ensure it doesn’t have any bugs. A comprehensive checklist ensures all tasks have been completed.
After testing, usually with placeholder content in place, the real content is added. This will have already been written or prepared by our copywriter.
At this point the SEO team will jump in to work their magic. They may spot further improvements so the Developer will tweak the code to address it if need be.
Before putting the website live, one last sanity check is undertaken and a list of all post-live tasks is created and briefed to the relevant people.
Monitor and update
To keep the website performing well after launch we have a routine process in place to monitor and improve site speed, 404s, security, platform updates and more.
