Looking for a Shopify Developer? Here at Barefoot we’ve been working with Shopify since the earliest days of the CMS, and have a high level of technical skills when it comes to working with the platform.

What is Shopify development?

Whether you’re interested in creating a Shopify theme from scratch, or refining an existing one, good Shopify development requires a solid understand of the platform.

For startup businesses, one of the existing Shopify themes is probably sufficient, but at a certain point within your lifecycle a brand needs its own unique look and feel. We can help you create the right aesthetic for your company, while maintaining the high level of ecommerce functionality which the Shopify platform so excels on.
