Shopify Website Design

Harness Shopify to power your e-commerce business

Shopify is a commerce platform that allows business owners to easily set up an online store in order to sell their products. It’s a great tool for small business owners as it includes the ability to keep track of product inventory, set up payment + shipping options, customise a storefront and more.

We like to recommend Shopify if you’re a business that sells physical products as it’s an all-in-one commerce platform, which means that you can start, grow and manage the business all on Shopify.

However, with Shopify being such a rich ecosystem, Lumos Marketing can help manage your Shopify storefront for you so that you can take care of the more important stuff of running an e-commerce business.

How to know if you should use Shopify?

Apart from being the perfect all-in-one commerce platform, Shopify also encompasses multiple moving pieces. These include marketing, web design, payment processing so that you can operate on a professional level. We recommend Shopify if you:

  • Don’t need a highly customised website
  • Only need to sell products
  • Need a platform that’s easy to scale
  • Prefer something that is easy to use and manage
  • Need it to integrate with apps such as Printful, Yotpo and Klaviyo

I’m Essential

E-asy to set up. E-asy to use.

Shopify accounts for nearly 20 percent of the eCommerce website market and powers 3.5 million stores. The thing that makes it so popular is its ease of use for merchants, fully integrating everything from inventory management, to shipping and payments. Some of the other things we love are:

  • Clean, user interface in the back end
  • No coding required
  • Very quick set up
  • 247 support and help centre 

Compared with some of the other ecommerce platforms online, Shopify is considered the most user-friendly for merchants.

Seamlessly streamlined

One platform. All the integrations.

The Shopify platform has an App Store that comes with 4000 different, Shopify tested and approved apps, that integrates your online store with the rest of the internet.

Some of our favourite integrations are:

  • Shipstation (for connecting to your Shipping Carriers and displaying live results)
  • Yotpo (for reviews collection and display)
  • ReCharge (for subscriptions)
  • Smile (Rewards program)

I am so impressed with the Lumos team that I would recommend them highly to anyone looking to brand their services and build a website. Importantly, Lumos service is 10/10 during and also after the sale too!

Laz RabinOwner Physio Mechanics

Having worked with marketing companies before, I was not overly excited about the prospect going through what I viewed as the ‘chore’ of redesigning our website. I was encouraged by a colleague, who’s opinion I value, to meet with the Lumos team as he assured me we would have a very different experience……..and we certainly did!!

FAQs

What exactly is Shopify?

In short, Shopify is an online selling platform based on a monthly subscription service. Its rise in popularity is due to its low startup cost and really easy to use interface. It can get small business owners set up and ready to sell and ship within minutes.

It is one of the most popular tools and platforms people use to power their online store and grow their business.

Should I use Shopify for my Ecommerce store?

Definitely! That’s what Shopify was built for, being an all-in-one commerce platform where business owners can easily set up, grow and maintain their e-commerce platform all in one day. Shopify even has plenty of apps and third-party integrations which can help modify your website – many of them free to use!

What is the difference between Shopify developers?

When it comes to Shopify Websites Perth, there are so many different options available and they all come at completely different price points. Here are a few things to check if you are confused about pricing and why there are so many differences between services:

  • Are they building the site from scratch or using trusted Shopify themes?
  • Are they doing the graphic design and imagery sourcing?
  • Is the website being designed in Perth or overseas?
  • Will there be any conversion techniques built into the site?
  • Does the site include basic SEO in its copy?
  • Are they providing training or DIY instructions for ongoing maintenance?

These questions should help you position everyone on a scale in terms of what you are paying for and why there are discrepancies between pricing.

What is involved in a Shopify website design?

A great thing about Shopify is that it allows you to customise and have complete control over your own storefront, which is the visual look of your e-commerce store.

You can edit and change the look of your website by using the rich text editor, template settings, and if you’re up for it and have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS, you can even edit the template code.

How much does a small business ecommerce website cost?

According to this article by Shopify, you can launch an e-commerce website for as little as $100. Ongoing costs such as a domain name, which costs around $29 per month, and Shopify subscriptions which start from $29, are included.

Meaning that the cost of an e-commerce website isn’t as crazy expensive as one might think. However, to get it up and running, other costs such as branding, themes, add-on extensions and payment processing need to be taken into account.

How does Shopify compare to other ecommerce solutions?

Shopify is considered a great starting solution for small business owners as it has all the fundamentals of setting up your own online store included.

However, with over 370 e-commerce platforms out there, it’s good to do a bit of research and know what you want out of your e-commerce store.

Here are a couple of key pointers:

  • Need more customisation? WooCommerce
  • Perhaps you need a stronger focus on SEO? PinnacleCart
  • Maybe you want to dial back to the simple stuff – Wix
  • Not so ‘small’ anymore? Head to BigCommerce

What does a Shopify website developer do?

While Shopify is considered to be easy for small business owners to set up and customise, you may need a website developer for a couple of things:

  • Customise the UI of the store
  • Make app integrations
  • Editing the theme code
  • Optimise store performance
  • De-bugging store function issues

Is Shopify the right platform for my small business?

  • Do you want to get your business online quickly and easily?
  • Is your businesses’ primary goal to sell online?
  • Do you have the time and resources to manage a Shopify website yourself?
  • Are you looking for something affordable?
