Hire Shopify Developers with Upstack

Did you know that Shopify has become the leading eCommerce platform for startups and small businesses? In fact, about 20% of all Shopify stores are owned by smaller companies or entrepreneurs. This makes it essential that if you’re planning on opening your own business, you should consider a Shopify-based eCommerce store in order to get a head start. Whether you are just getting started with your business or already have a site up and running but need some help with your development, finding the right Shopify developer is key. An expert in this field can help build a custom Shopify storefront that meets all your requirements, while also streamlining things so they run smoothly in the future. However, many developers specialize in different platforms and software solutions, it can be challenging to find the perfect one for your business. Keep reading to learn more about how to find a great Shopify developer for your business.

Who is a Shopify Developer?

First, it’s helpful to understand what a Shopify developer does. Shopify’s website explains that in order to create a customized eCommerce store on their software, you need to work with a developer who can create a store “from scratch.” This means that the developer will actually be creating your store’s source code, designing your site’s look, and also installing any necessary software that is needed to run your store. An expert in this field will have experience with multiple eCommerce platforms, and will be able to create a custom-tailored solution based on your needs. If you’re considering hiring a Shopify developer for your business, it’s important to make sure he or she is experienced with the Shopify liquid platform. This is because each platform has its own coding language and special features, so you want to be sure your developer knows how to use them.

How to Find a Shopify Expert

When you’re ready to start your search for a Shopify developer, the first thing you should do is create a shortlist of potential needs. This will help you narrow down your options, so you can quickly find the right person for your project with your UpStack Rep. Once you have a shortlist of potential Shopify experts, it’s time to start narrowing down your options. The first thing you should do is create a list of questions you want to pose to each shopify developer. This will allow you to quickly dismantle their experience and find out if they would be a good fit for your project. Some good questions to ask include: What is your experience with eCommerce? Which eCommerce platforms do you regularly work with? What are your rates? Do you have previous experience with similar projects to mine?

3 Steps to Finding the Right Shopify Expert

Once you’ve identified a few Shopify experts that seem like a good fit for your project, it’s time to schedule some one-on-one discovery sessions with each individual via video call. When conducting these discovery sessions, you should keep an eye out for a few things: The developer’s level of communication: Does he or she respond in a timely manner? Do they answer all your questions thoroughly? The shopify developer’s level of interest in your project: Do they ask you lots of questions about your goals or your business? Do they seem genuinely excited to help you achieve your goals? Potential red flags: Is the developer overly aggressive or sales-y? Are they trying to upsell you on additional services or products?

Don’t Forget the Importance of Scoping Sessions

Finally, one thing you should always remember to do when working with a Shopify expert is scoping sessions. This means that before you hire an expert, you should define the problem you’re trying to solve and the goals you have for your project. Doing so will allow you to create a project brief, so you can look for an expert who can help you achieve your goals in the most efficient way possible. It will also allow you to identify the best Shopify experts for your project and weed out those who might not be right for your needs. Working with an expert who knows how to create a custom-tailored solution based on your specific business needs is essential if you want to see results. You can find the right person to help you by following these steps, so you can find the perfect Shopify expert for your project.
