Shopify is one the most developer-friendly eCommerce platforms out there. What this means for your business is that you can get access to any range of customizations that you require. Perhaps that is why, in just over a decade, Shopify has become one of the largest shopping cart solutions in the world.
One of the distinguishing attributes of Shopify is that it, as a company, it always tries its best to help merchants and developers in any way it can. Shopify developers are provided with all kinds of tools and resources to help them become masters of the platform. Developers with the right expertise and experience can even become Shopify partners.
Merchants, on the other hand, can set up and launch their stores with little investment and effort. You enjoy a great deal of flexibility. And if you need expert help, you can always select a developer from Shopify’s list of partners.
How Shopify Works
Shopify stores are based on themes. These themes are powered by HTML, CSS and Liquid. HTML is a common programming language, while CSS is responsible for theme styling. Liquid is a unique language that not many programmers know of. It is responsible for transferring data from your store to your theme template.
As far as themes are concerned, there are plenty of eye-catching free themes available on the Shopify store. For a startup, these themes are more than sufficient to get the ball rolling. They perform quite well and allow merchants some degree of customization too.
However, if you have the budget, it is always better to go for custom themes. Custom themes created by seasoned Shopify Developers are bound to be more attractive than the generic ones. They allow you to offer a unique shopping experience to your customers, which is essential if you want to stand out.
Everything is Possible With Shopify
The best thing about Shopify is that it offers you the chance to be in complete control. It is very open-ended. You can have almost any style of store you want. As long your Shopify developer is adept at handling HTML, CSS and Liquid languages, everything is possible. Furthermore, customizations are generally very stable. Once a customization is up and running, there is no need to revisit it.
There are also a number of readymade apps and integrations available that can help you. You can find these in the Shopify store. If these don’t work for you, you can always ask your Shopify developer to create an app for you.
