What Are Shopify Apps? The Shopify App Store offers vendors thousands of apps. These Shopify apps function as plugins, extending a store’s functions and improving customer experience. Vendors can select a Shopify app to integrate with their store and be up and running with new functionality in no time at all.
Do I need separate hosting for Shopify? With Shopify, web hosting is included. Why do you need web hosting? You need web hosting if you want to put your online store on the World Wide Web. Essentially, everything on the internet is stored on a server somewhere. So yes, I can also provide support & maintenance for Shopify stores based on: media changes, text changes, speed optimization and other tweaks.
The WooCommerce websites in exchange are hosted in the client’s hosting account, which means everything is in one place. I will offer 24/7 support, even with the basic plan, so you know you have help when you need it.

WordPress is a Content Management System while WooCommerce works inside WordPress to transform it into an eCommerce site. This means that you can use it to sell anything online. You can sell physical products, services, and digital products.
WooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress which means you need a WordPress website for which you have to pay a hosting fee, install the WooCommerce plugin, and then set up the store. However, if you already have an existing WordPress website, setting up WooCommerce is an easy process.
I usually say between 1 and 3 weeks approximately (depending on the website design plan you choose), but if you provide me with your content quickly, and you have a deadline to meet, I will try to accelerate your build more quickly.
I will confirm the estimated time frame of your new online shop once we have had a chat and I have a clear idea of the work I will do for you.
If your Shopify or WooCommerce online shop will require special features or functionality, the timeframe may vary slightly depending on its complexity. In any case, I will keep you informed at all times.
- For Shopify: I will invoice you for the initial payment, which will be paid by bank transfer before the start of the project. The rest of the contract duration will be paid by monthly subscription direct to Shopify. So each month you will pay a 29$ fee to keep online your shop built with Shopify.
- For WordPress and WooCommerce: I will invoice you for the initial payment, which will be paid by bank transfer before the start of the project. The rest of the contract duration will be paid by monthly subscription or by direct payment by bank or by credit/debit card.
In the WooCommerce web design if you pay for the service by credit/debit card each month you will be charged the exact amount according to the monthly plan chosen. Otherwise, if you do not want to be tied to monthly payments and contracts you can pay the total project at 60% – 40%.
