At Pear Digital we get to work on several exciting projects .Many of them involve designing and developing engaging websites that allow you to sell your goods and products. When a client comes to us with a website project they require three things from us, speed, simplicity and an affordable solution. Shopify offers all 3
To help you get up and running Pear Digital have partnered with Shopify, the world’s largest e-commerce platform. Shopify powers 500,000+ online businesses and has over 1million active users it also offers a complete integrated solution from hosting your website to an all in one payment processing system all for a small monthly fee starting from £23 per month payable to Shopify.
Since Pear Digital has partnered up with Shopify we have access to a wealth of experience and resources that will get you ahead of your completion. The platform is easy to use and quick to set-up and has tremendous benefits. Here are few that you will find valuable.
- Easy to use back end admin system (the easiest we have ever seen) – track orders, change stock, track where most of your customers are coming from i.e. Instagram, Facebook or organic search and whatever else that is needed
- Fully integrated social media and email marketing/newsletter features
- Abandon cart recovery notification- if someone abandons their shopping cart you will get a notification to send them an email for them to complete their purchase (this can be any message you want) this definitely helps with not losing any sales
- Integrated payment system- you won’t need payment merchants
- No need for hosting as you can host on their servers (emails will require hosting)
- When you add a new product to your website you can add straight away to Facebook and create a newsletter – to get the buzz going straight away.
- Shopify comes with a free downloadable app you can download on your phone or tablet where you can track your sales, stock and all other information , see how many visitors you have had on your site and a whole lot more. – You can literally run your whole online shop from your phone
- Monthly fee starts from £23 per month and 2.2% per transaction – both are payable to shopify- which works out cheaper than payment merchant+ hosting

Once we receive your query we will then contact you to go through your options such as what theme you should choose. A Shopify theme is a beautifully designed layout of how your website will look. Once you have chosen your theme we will then customise it to suit your branding and colures and also add features that will enhance your customer’s experience and generate sales. Some themes are free and some you will need to pay for but they come with additional features. No matter what your industry is, there is a theme for you.
It usually takes around 2-3 weeks for us to set-up and design your online store and once it’s up and running we will provide support free for 30 days to make sure you get to grips with it. You will also have access to Shopify’s own support team who are available 24/7 .
