How to Build and Scale a Shopify Plus Site?

Your business is rapidly growing, and you need a site. You are at the right place. Building a website with Shopify Plus is easy. Get your site up and running in days.

Here’s how you can build a scalable Shopify Plus site.

Know The Purpose of Your Site

Before you begin, you should decide your site’s goal. Speak to an authorized Shopify partner’s development store if your site has multiple goals.

Most websites have at least one of the following goals:

  • Selling products
  • Selling services
  • Establishing brand identity
  • Offering visitors a window to your company
  • Highlighting testimonials from clients
  • Conversion of visitors into leads
  • Developing your online presence

Your website’s goal will dictate the type and layout. Say you want to sell products. How do you plan to organize your store? How will you offer discounts? What payment gateways will you integrate?

Here’s what Shopify Plus will give you:

  • A Launch Engineer to guide you through the setup process
  • Provide ready-to-use templates
  • Customizable themes with access to Liquid (theme language)
  • Drag-and-drop website building options
  • Easy customization for SEO visibility

Shopify Plus will give you complete control over the website design process. However, you may need help from a Shopify store development company for creating a professional website.

Sphinx Solutions is here to guide you through every step of the building process. We will take you through each step and give you an estimated time of completion.

You should always look for a web host that offers the following:

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Hassle-free setup
  • Fast servers
  • Level 1 PCI compliance
  • Unlimited email
  • Unique customized domain
  • Picking the correct custom domain name

Your domain is your digital address. Keep it simple, and stick to your brand name, if possible.

Contact Sphinx Solutions for additional information on Shopify website development, hosting, and picking out domain names for your online Shopify Plus site.

Pick a Layout

Shopify Plus has a host of customizable themes. All themes from Shopify Plus are responsive.

Use Liquid in your toolkit to make necessary changes. Access the Liquid theme language to make changes at the code level. Always remain in control of your site’s backend.

You will require decent HTML knowledge for manipulating your site’s backend using Liquid. For more assistance, contact Sphinx Solutions. We are a leading Shopify partner development store with developers who specialize in Shopify Plus site development, scaling, and maintenance.

Build Your Pages

The standard website has the following pages:

  • Homepage
  • Product/Service Page
  • Contact Page
  • About Us
  • FAQ Page
  • Company Policy

Shopify Plus allows the developer to create as many pages as necessary to build their clients’ trust. Talk to your Shopify partner’s development store to find out which pages your website needs.

If you are building an eCommerce website, you will need to integrate payment gateways.

Here’s what you can do with Shopify Plus:

  • Integrate multiple payment gateways
  • Customize your payment options including PayPal, GPay, Shop Pay, and Credit and Debit card options.
  • Accept GiftCard as an alternate payment option

With Shopify Plus your customer’s payment data will always remain safe. It offers Payment Data Encryption, bot protection, SCO2 Type II compliance, 3D Secure Checkout, and Fraud-risk analysis.

You get complete access to the Shopify Scripts that allow you to adjust the payment options using the Script Editor. Keep all your transaction data in one place by combining your POS system with Shopify Plus.

Add the Tools You Need

In addition to fully-customizable templates, Shopify Plus provides over 6,600 apps in the Shopify App Store. These include Wholesale Channel, Transporter App, Bulk Account Inviter, and Launchpad.

Shopify Plus gives all the power to the website owner. Your website will never limit your business growth.

  • Automate the processes for customer retention, fraud prevention, and merchandising with Shopify Flow.
  • Accept multiple currencies at a single store.
  • Use Launchpad to set up pop-up sales and mitigate bot attacks.
  • Get a unified dashboard to manage all your stores, staff access, and permissions.
  • Receive complete analytics reports and insightful data with built-in reporting.

Preview and Test your Website

Every website requires a soft launch. Unless you work with experienced developers, you will have to run multiple user experience (UX) checks.

  • Ensure that all your products and services are displayed properly
  • There are no broken links
  • Make sure it’s responsive
  • It should be fast and smooth
