How Our Shopify App Development Services Work

Just like how our actual Shopify app services will differ based on your specific goals, the way we carry them out will vary depending on the project, as well.


That being said, depending on the type of Shopify app you have in mind, most of our services involve the following steps:


Initial Calls and Consultation

App development can be a complex process, which is why we don’t just have you fill out some form and then get started. Instead, we’re happy to sit down for a no-obligation initial consultation to understand what you want from an app and so we can give you a more detailed overview of the process involved.


Once we have a better idea of what you want from your custom app, we’ll conduct a review and analysis and provide you with initial feedback about how we can help. Our development team may also make suggestions about other aspects of your Shopify site that you could upgrade to better reach your goals.


Begin the Shopify App Design Process

The next step in our app development process is the gathering of functional and system requirements, aligning with your technological preferences. After that, we’ll present you with a comprehensive wireframe that outlines both the user interface and internal app processes.


Once the wireframe is approved, we’ll begin designing the look of your app. We’ll present you with the finished product once we’re done, so we can get your approval before proceeding. Throughout this UI/UX phase, we utilize best practices tailored for the optimal performance of your app on Shopify.


App Code Development

Our seasoned developers excel at implementing expert Shopify code, particularly employing a serverless approach for less complex apps with minimal load and user traffic. This method not only ensures scalability but also ensures your app can handle large surges in traffic. After all, the goal of our app development services is to make something users will want to return to again and again and again.


The timeline for this stage varies based on the app's complexity, but our proficient team of developers thrives on tackling any technical challenge with Shopify. With extensive experience in building Shopify stores and apps from the ground up, integrating third-party tools, and providing ongoing upgrades and maintenance, we guarantee a robust and future-ready app infrastructure.


Shopify Validation (if Applicable)

If you want a public app that Shopify will feature on their store so that other people and businesses can download it, that app will need to go through a validation process. That’s why it’s so important to have an experienced Shopify developer review the app before submitting it to make sure it meets Shopify’s requirements. We can also walk you through the entire process and answer any questions you might have about the Shopify store and how users will be able to download your app.


Final Review and Launch

Whether your app is public or private, the next step in the app development process is to review the finished product once more, conduct thorough QA testing, and then get your approval before we launch it. Before this final step, we’ll review your online store to make sure that the launch won’t cause any problems with uptime.


Ongoing Support from Shopify Developers

Once your new app is up and running, you can retain our Shopify development team to provide ongoing support and maintenance. Of course, we are always available if any clients ever have questions or need help with their custom apps.

Shopify App Development FAQ

Hopefully, you found the above information about Shopify app development company and how our unique services can help your company’s growth. We’ve also listed the most common questions we’ve received over the years from business owners we’ve worked with. But please feel free to contact us if you have any questions that you don’t find answers to below.


How much does Shopify app development cost?

The cost for app development will depend on what you need it to do and any unique aspects of your store that might require further work. However, before we begin any app development work, we will provide you with a detailed SOW (Scope of Work) that walks you through each step of the process, how long we estimate it will take, and a quote for the service.


How long does the process take your app development company?

That also depends on what kind of Shopify app you want. While we can often have the final result done within a month, it could take much longer, too. Once again, we’ll create a detailed SOW that lists each specific step in the process before any work is started.


What Shopify Apps do you work with?

We can add and set up any app you want to your Shopify store. Our team of Shopify experts can also make recommendations based on your goals. And, of course, if the right app doesn’t exist for your Shopify site, we can create a completely customized solution through our development process.


Do you offer other Shopify development services?

Absolutely. We have a world-class team of Shopify developers who have worked on all kinds of projects for companies across a wide range of industries. Check out our Shopify development services page for more details. We also offer Shopify SEO services if you need help attracting traffic to your store.


Do you design apps for clients who want to sell them in the Shopify store?

Definitely. Clients hire our team to create private Shopify apps that they use solely for their own stores and to design the kind that they can add to Shopify’s App Store. While different purposes will affect the process our team pursues to create the perfect app, we have plenty of experience doing both.


Do you hire freelancers to work on app development projects?

We employ our own team of “in-house” app development experts. This includes the Account Manager who will be assigned to your company. That being said, we’re not afraid of admitting when we need outside help. Our team has spent nearly two decades building a large network throughout the world of eCommerce development so that we can always reach out to other experts when our clients need something specific. We pride ourselves on taking these kinds of steps to ensure our eCommerce clients are always impressed with our results.
