How our Shopify app development agency works
Bold UI/UX design
We start the development process by collecting functional and system requirements for the technology our clients requested. Then, we show the result as a wireframe representing the user interface and internal app processes. Once the wireframe is ready, we proceed to visual designs with complete files and prototypes. While working with a Shopify app, we use Shopify Polaris, an open-source design system with a collection of best practices for this e-commerce platform.
Expert code implementation
For a basic app with a small load and user traffic, our Shopify developers follow the serverless approach. It allows our clients to scale automatically and withstand increasing traffic volumes easier in the future. The duration of this stage depends on the complexity of the requested app, however, our professional team is up for any technical challenges. We’ve got comprehensive expertise in building Shopify stores from the ground up, integrating them with third-party tools, upgrading, and maintaining.
Hassle-free Shopify validation
New public apps must pass the Shopify developer review process. The platform will check if the app is compliant with Shopify App Store requirements and addresses the standards of usability and security. With our professional help, your website will appear in Shopify with ease. To help you pass the validation, we help you prepare all the necessary information in advance to quickly and properly fill out the Shopify questionnaire.
Application upgrades and maintenance
We provide support and maintenance services for Shopify apps we’ve developed. At this stage, we analyze metrics data, collect user feedback, and add features that will significantly improve your product and help you generate more revenues. Improving an app can take a couple of hours to several weeks, depending on our agreement with the client. We also provide ongoing maintenance services to ensure your application works properly and delights users.
Benefits of custom Shopify app development for your business
Shopify is a perfect choice for versatile types of e-commerce businesses. Are you just starting up? This platform allows you to quickly build an online store with all the must-have features like customized checkouts and appealing product listings. If you’re already an established e-commerce business, you’re not likely to outgrow Shopify since it offers all the possibilities of scaling. Even large businesses can benefit from Shopify’s excellent customization opportunities and withstanding a high load of user transactions.
Having been involved with custom Shopify app development for a while, we can reassure you that this platform is a perfect fit for all kinds of businesses and niches. It helps e-commerce entrepreneurs build highly customized online stores to test their business idea or accelerate the time-to-market to launch and start generating the first profits.
