Shopify has various advantages which can be leveraged by businesses based in Melbourne to stand out amongst the competitors. Some of these advantages are user-friendly interface, robust features, scalability, and the wide range of plugins. For businesses based in Melbourne - its easier, cost effective and less maintenance needed option to run the business because Shopify doesn’t require constant technical development (coding).

Shopify and WooCommerce cater to different e-commerce needs. Shopify is a hosted solution, which means it handles hosting, security, and upgrades for you, making it ideal for customers who are interested in easy setup.

On the other hand, WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin that allows more control over your store but requires self-hosting and technicalities, which means you would need to get a hosting server and also need to make sure underlying technical details of how pages are built while in case of Shopify it's just drag and drop to create pages

In summary - WooCommerce offers more control compared to Shopify.

In terms of which one you should be using for your business, we recommend you to get in touch with our Melbourne based team to discuss the scope of development that you are looking for.

We can discuss things like what are your priorities, functionality, design that you want to have for your site and according to that our experts can offer data based recommendations - if you should be using Shopify or WooCommerce for your business site.

In case you have already made a decision for developing your site using WooCommerce, then we can discuss the scope of the project with you and give you a quote on how much it will cost and what the timelines for going live will be.

Shopify offers you total control over how your shop looks as well as its functionality. You can use third-party apps to add what you want or select among many customisable themes, including built-in ones, from Shopify itself, depending on what works best for you.

Our experts will help you through this development process and make sure that your website reflects your brand design & values.

And to highlight specific brand design elements and help you stand out amongst the competition, we also offer custom Shopify theme development which means we can develop a Shopify site however you like it to be. 

Because with regular themes in Shopify there is only limited opportunity to change that’s why if you're looking to stand out from competition, we recommend going with custom theme development for your Shopify site.

Which means branding colours (in header, footer or some other section of site), interactive elements, call to actions (CTA) will be exactly what you're looking for - detailed customisation of site to meet your requirements which otherwise is not possible by using a regular theme in Shopify.

Our unique Shopify Development process involves interactive feedback during each step of development you can provide us feedback and we will make changes on site accordingly. Our goal is to keep you in loop so that we can align the final design to what you exactly are looking for and help your business stand out & grow as well!
