Frequently Asked Questions
What's your typical Shopify Plus client profile?

Our Advanced Shopify and Shopify Plus clients are typically ambitious brands looking to stand out from the crowd without compromising on either form or function. Determined to grow faster on Shopify, their annual revenue tends to be over £1 million; if less, they’re aiming to reach that figure soon!

In terms of verticals, our Shopify agency clients range from fashion and beauty, homewares and gifts, to sports, food and drink. Read more about our clients here.

How much should I expect to pay for the design and build of my Shopify Plus website?

Unsurprisingly, the overall costs will largely depend on the complexity of the Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus design and build. After having a quick, obligation-free chat about your Shopify project requirements, we can give you a ballpark starting price. From there, we can put together a detailed proposal with specific estimated costs for the whole project (see details on Shopify project proposals below).

How long will it take your Shopify agency to design, build and launch my website?

The time from discovery to launch will significantly depend on your specific Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus project requirements. After discussing this with you, we’ll prepare a full proposal, including timescales tailored to your Shopify project. Generally, for a more complex Shopify project, we typically estimate a 4-6 month timescale.

Do I really need a bespoke theme for my Shopify store?

Our Shopify agency specialises in custom Shopify websites and is known for our innovative, bespoke design and development work. As a result, all of the Shopify builds, and Shopify redesigns we deliver have bespoke themes. Read more about the standard versus bespoke Shopify themes in this post

What information is included in your Shopify project proposals?

After contacting us to discuss your requirements, we’ll respond with a detailed Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus project proposal covering key areas like:

  • blubolt services and processes. We’ll explain what we do, how we do it, and who does it! In short, you’ll know what’s happening at every project stage, from discovery, design, and build to UAT and launch.

  • Project inclusions. We’ll advise what Shopify Plus services are included (like technical and design workshops, frontend build, and data migration, to name a few), as well as the specific website pages and integrations included within the project scope.

  • Costs. We’ll give you a clear breakdown of proposed costs for items like the design and build, retainer-only and optimisation services, and Shopify Plus fees.

  • Timings. We’ll give you an estimated timeframe for the Shopify Plus project completion.

We’ll chat through the proposal on a video call, so you’ll have the opportunity to meet the team and ask as many questions as you like! Naturally, you’ll need time to process the information afterwards, but we’re on hand for any follow-up queries you may have.

Can you help me manage and/or optimise my existing Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus website?

We certainly can! Our growth and optimisation packages - which form your bluprint for success with blubolt and Shopify - are available in Gold and Platinum. Each can be tailored to your specific needs and include:

  • Gold Package. We can take over the management of your existing Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus website and provide services like website development, design refreshes, and partner recommendations, as well as deliver ad hoc project work. Our thorough onboarding process means you’ll hit the ground running. We’ll organise your website code into our super-sleek blubolt folder structure, whereby each section of your code is broken down into smaller, consistently labelled folders. This becomes our pristine ‘source of truth’ so we can effectively and efficiently manage your website while keeping a clear record of changes. And, crucially, multiple blubolt developers can work on your Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus site without any confusion!

  • Platinum Package. Want to supercharge your site? In addition to the Gold Package services, you’ll enjoy our popular and highly effective Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus optimisation service. We’ll help you seize untapped ecommerce opportunities by analysing data and user research to identify friction points and website opportunities. This ultimately leads to meaningful A/B tests and changes to improve user experience and boost KPIs.
