Shopify eCommerce Frequently Asked Questions

It's important to understand which eCommerce platform is the best option for your business. That's why we've put together this collection of Shopify eCommerce questions to help.

How much does it cost to develop a Shopify eCommerce website?

As with most websites, Shopify websites can be developed very cheaply as a do-it-yourself project. Costs for developing a professional Shopify eCommerce website design depend on specific requirements.

In addition, Shopify charges a regular subscription fee to allow businesses access to its service. Charges vary depending on the service level required. Shopify also takes a commission of up to about 2% on each item sold.

Do I need to be a designer or developer to use Shopify?

Shopify is designed to allow anyone to set up a store, but ensuring it is the best it can be for your brand - and delivers to its potential - requires expert input.

There’s no replacement for expertise and experience and hiring a professional enables you to do what you do best within your business, and for someone else to focus on the task of making use of the latest tools and insights for your eCommerce store.

Are Shopify stores fully customisable?

Yes they are, and that’s one of the attractions of Shopify. It’s possible to tap into all the seamless efficiencies of its eCommerce structures whilst maintaining the integrity of your brand.
