Why Should You Hire a Shopify Development Agency for Your Ecommerce Business?


In the “pandemic world”, much business activity and shopping has had to shift online. This has caused a huge spike in the number of  eCommerce businesses around the world – and Australians have really taken it up! 


We’ve written in previous blog posts about the pandemic situation and the great takeup of online shopping in Australia, starting in 2020 with the prolonged lock-downs and safety concerns, and continuing takeup through 2021 as families adjusted to online purchasing for essentials and all kinds of other goods. 


Our classic bricks and mortar experience was always along the lines of going to Bunnings on a Saturday morning, with their regular tempting sausage sizzles at the front door. Or wandering through the maze at Kmart buying impulse items! Although many people are walking in to shops again in 2022, the fact of online shopping is with us now, and life is different.  People have learned to love the comvenience and safety of ecommerce. 


According to a United States Government Department of Commerce marketing intelligence web report Australia is considered the eleventh biggest ecommerce market in the world. Not bad considering our relatively small population. 


Due to these changing patterns in consumer behaviour, ecommerce platforms including Shopify have seen tremendous growth. 3.76 million live websites use Shopify. The majority of domains (69.67%) are registered in the United States. The United Kingdom and Australia make up the top 3. At the end of 2021, Shopify reported $121.3 billion (USD) in gross merchandise volume, meaning that Shopify facilitated that amount of money in transactions for merchants.

Here are some important points that Webyroo will take into consideration when designing your Shopify platform: 


The biggest factor in hiring an expert team to get you up and running in ecommerce is the time you save. Not to mention the angst. As a growing business, especially if you’re a start-up, all your energy needs to go towards your products, and communicating with your target market’s. 

User Experience

As we implied above, the customer experience means everything. You must first and foremost be findable. If your product, your business, is not quickly found high up in the google search list, buyers will be looking elsewhere. And as soon as a visitor reaches your site, they will know within milliseconds if they’re going to stay or move on. They must be captured quickly, as potential customers can make very very quick decisions about whether they’re in the right place. Then all the factors we stated above come into play. Fast-loading, easy to navigate, mobile device compatible and so on. 


The quality of your ecommerce site can make the difference between visitors to the sight choosing to stay, really look, and hopefully purchase – or just giving you the flick and moving quickly on to other sites. Quality means that your ecommerce site must suit the “tone” of your business, work well, and give users a great experience. 

Brand Reputation 

How your online store functions and looks will make or break your brand. With our experts building your ecommerce site, and getting you started with customer engagement and digital marketing, combined with your knowledge of your customer base and your products, your brand will be ready to fly!
