How Much Does a Custom Shopify Website Cost?

Features of Shopify Websites

Shopify website

Shopify is a popular all-in-one commerce platform that allows you to sell products online, on social media, and in person. It’s self-hosted, so you can run a store from any location, so long as you have access to the internet.

With over 2,500 apps to facilitate eCommerce operations and marketing, Shopify makes it easy to manage payments and inventory, upselling, shipping, customer service, and more. Its state-of-the-art tech stacks, mobile responsive templates, and in-depth customization provide merchants with everything they need to generate a healthy cash flow.

Shopify links to profitable sales channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Amazon, eBay, and others offering unlimited business growth, while its excellent set of SEO tools ensures your store’s web pages are effectively indexed and ranked in search engines.

Another core benefit is security and reliability. The platform guarantees 99.8% uptime and every store comes with an SSL certificate, meaning you and your shoppers’ personal and financial data is safe and secure.

It’s challenging to find an eCommerce platform that beats Shopify in terms of simplicity, mobile friendliness, sales reach, and growth potential. That’s why this popular platform powers four million stores.

The Benefits of Using Shopify

The benefits and disadvantages of Shopify

There are several benefits of using Shopify, from its built-in features to the platform’s ability to integrate with a number of other third-party services. If you’re looking for a secure, easy-to-use platform for your eCommerce website, Shopify is the answer.

Ease of Use

What makes Shopify special is its ease of use. Even without technical and coding skills, you can still create a beautiful and functional store. The platform’s drag-drop tool allows you to customize web pages without having to invest hours in learning how to use it. All you need to do is create an account, choose a template and add your products.


Shopify’s interface is mobile-friendly ensuring your store looks great on all devices. As a result, your customers can shop from wherever they are, and you can manage operations from your smartphone if you need to. It also offers full-stack customer support via email, live chat and phone 24/7 should you need to resolve any issues.

Theme Variety

Shopify’s interface is mobile-friendly ensuring your store looks great on all devices. As a result, your customers can shop from wherever they are, and you can manage operations from your smartphone if you need to. It also offers full-stack customer support via email, live chat and phone 24/7 should you need to resolve any issues.

The Disadvantages of Shopify

While Shopify is a suitable platform for almost any eCommerce endeavor, like all platforms there are a few downsides.

Limited Customization

Although Shopify has a wide range of themes, design customization is limited. This may or may not be an issue, depending on how complex your store is. You can always work with a developer to customize the finer details of your store or build a website from scratch, but this can be far more costly.

Higher Prices

Most Shopify stores rely on add-on features and advanced Shopify plans to fully function because the platform’s free version is limited. Shopify plans start at $29 and increase up to $299, excluding transaction and app subscription fees. As with all hosted sites, this can become pricey.

No Email Hosting

Shopify does not offer email hosting. This means you can send emails to customers, but they can’t respond. Therefore, you have to use a paid email hosting service. While not the end of the world, most merchants find this an inconvenience.

Frequently Asked Questions About Shopify eCommerce Development

Do I need Shopify for my eCommerce

Shopify is a solid website development platform offering an advanced suite of integrations and customizations that make running an online business smooth and efficient. Whether you're just starting out with a limited inventory or an existing store that's looking for Shopify migration services, we can help! Every online store uses some type of development platform to build, design, and operate its business. Shopify is an excellent choice that caters to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Currently, it supports over one million merchants in 175 different countries! Our Shopify development services range from building sites from scratch to advertising, promotion, and optimization for maximum conversions. If you do choose Shopify, you'll need support from a team like us to help your business grow.

Is Shopify platform right for my store?

Great question! We love Shopify and find it works exceedingly well for the majority of our clients, regardless of inventory size. In other words, it's equally great to sell ten or 50,000 items. If you're looking for a store with highly customizable features, then Shopify Plus is a good option. Shopify Plus is a fully hosted enterprise solution designed for high-growth merchants and brands. It does everything that Shopify does but with advanced features that support high traffic volumes and international sales. Our Shopify website development experts are here to help if you require advice on which option better suits your eCommerce website's needs. Contact us for a free consultation.

Do I require a professional Shopify development company to set up my store?

Even without technical knowledge, you can set up a basic store on Shopify with relative ease. However, it would take you much longer to achieve the results our experienced team can deliver. When you hire professional Shopify development services like ours, you get many years of experience with a range of experts that specialize in development, design, copywriting, PPC, advertising, SEO, content marketing, and more. Most business owners don't have the time or expertise to DIY a professional team's work. Do you? For this reason, it's more cost-effective and less risky to hire an expert agency that knows exactly what they're doing and allows you to focus on growing your business as effectively as possible.

Do you design custom website or use Shopify templates?

Shopify comes with great, user-friendly templates, but we prefer designing our own. eCommerce stores achieve the best results when their websites are tailored to offer unique shopping experiences that accurately reflect their brands. Your website has less than five seconds to create a good impression. At Comrade, we take branding and website design seriously because it's often the primary way customers interact with your business. Therefore, you need to create the right impression every time! Creating a website built around your brand's personality and implementing the necessary features and functionality you require to achieve business growth is the only way to guarantee sales.

Is Shopify SEO included in the cost of website development?

While your Shopify store will be optimized with foundational SEO tactics, oftentimes, an ongoing monthly campaign is required to remain competitive, attract the right inbound traffic and generate expected revenue. Just like a physical store, eCommerce websites do require continuous work to ensure peak performance. Most businesses outsource this to marketing specialists to ensure their stores run smoothly. Our marketing experts will prepare an SEO strategy to help you dominate all search engines. If you're considering using Shopify or want to migrate to the platform, please contact us for a free marketing audit to get started!

Can you check if our store can and should be migrated to Shopify?

Absolutely. Our Shopify experts will be happy to consult with you free of charge and discuss how you can migrate your store to Shopify. We’ll provide honest feedback and help devise the most cost effective solution wih the best ROI.
