E Commerce on the Shopify Platform by Studio55
Our client, based in Belfast, Co.Antrim Northern Ireland required an e commerce platform to sell their products throughout the UK & Europe. Turnaround was tight from initial content they wanted to go LIVE with the website one week later. This is where the power can come from Shopify – in basic terms you can signup for an account – within the hour have a basic website up and running. Shopify host directly, with the only technical element for the user, pointing the DNS records on their domain to the shopify URL. Shopify itself has a series of base frameworks to allow you to choose from, or you can add your own bespoke framework, which is what Studio55 designed in this case. Although not as many options as the bigger platforms, like Woo Commerce or Magento it serves it’s clientele, with a quick turnaround time and no large upfront cost, the platform costs $29 per month.
