If Shopify is easy to set up and manage yourself, then why would you need help from Perth Shopify experts like us?
Many new and existing shop owners do need expert help. Shopify can become challenging when you need to change or customise Shopify themes and templates. The Shopify Marketplace has plenty of apps to add to your store, but choosing the best app can be a nightmare and sometimes it’s more effective to build in custom functionality.Read More

Here’s a smarter approach: If you build your Shopify store through us, you don’t pay any subscription costs until your website is live. So even if your website takes several months to finalise, you don’t pay any subscription fees in that time.
On top of this saving, we can often build custom themes for Shopify that are less money than the standard off-the-shelf themes available in Shopify. If you need modifications made to a theme to make it exactly right for you, then it is often way less time and money for us to build a custom theme.
Another benefit of choosing us in Perth to build your Shopify website is that we have a massive library of themes and clever code we have built in the past. We can add clever features to your theme using our own code built for other themes, saving you even more money.
We are a local Perth agency and have been building Shopify websites for a long time. We are a certified Shopify Partner and we know Shopify.Read More
When you first start exploring the themes on Shopify, it can be very overwhelming trying to work out which theme will best fit your needs. Some people find they choose one theme and then realise halfway through that it doesn’t provide the functionality or layout they need. This usually wastes time and money.
We can advise you on the best theme and applications to meet your needs and also advise on any limitations or constraints that could affect your business.
It’s always better to learn in advance before you invest money or time with something up that is not going to be right for you. With our advice, we can help you find what you need, and if there are no themes in the Shopify library that meet your unique requirements, we can build a custom theme that ticks all your boxes – and at an affordable cost.
If you want to alter your existing Shopify theme, please talk with us. We are one of the few Perth web companies that know how to quickly customise themes and code within Shopify.Read More

Remember, if you can dream it, we can build it. And if your dreams are too big for your budget, then we’ll help you plan a staged approach with a roadmap that makes sense for you and your business.
Clever ‘Systems Integration’ is another serious area of expertise for Concise Digital. We make different systems talk to each other nicely.Read More
As an example, you may have an inventory system that runs your warehouse, and you want to integrate this with your Shopify store. Yes, we’ve done this before many times.
Or perhaps you want to integrate your Shopify store with your CRM or your accounting system. We’ve done this many times also.
Of course, it depends on what systems you have. We don’t have a magic wand, but we do have great expertise, years of experience and a good track record of success in systems integration with Shopify. Talk with us and find out what’s possible.
If you have a website on another platform such as Magento, Neto, Volution, WooCommerce, Wix, Squarespace or Drupal, we can migrate it to Shopify efficiently. We have successfully migrated many websites to Shopify, so we know the pain points and how to overcome these.Read More
We have solutions for B2C and B2B migrations to Shopify as well as migrations from one POS system to the new improved Shopify POS system.
Generally, if you predict your business would earn under $10k in online sales per month, then Shopify is a great choice to get started.Read More
The reason for this is because Shopify takes a percentage of each sale if you use a third-party payment gateway like Afterpay, ZipPay or PayPal. When you’re selling large volumes, these fees can become a big cost. When your business is generating lots of sales, eCommerce solutions like PrestaShop become a smarter choice as there are no transaction fees.
That said, we have plenty of large and successful business clients happily running big online stores on the Shopify platform.
Shopify can be a very good choice for DIY’ers as Shopify themes are easy to install without much customisation work.Read More
The biggest advantage of Shopify is that it’s easy to use and scalable.
You don’t need to have Shopify development and design experience to build a Shopify site.Read More
You have the power to manage and change your own website without having to consistently rely on a Shopify website design company. That’s the big appeal to many Australian businesses.
Even with its ease of use, building a website is always a steep learning curve. To help you get it right, Shopify provides plenty of online tutorials and other resources for DIY help and self-education. Concise Digital also runs workshops and webinars to help you on the fast track.
At Concise, we are platform-agnostic, so we will always be honest about what platform is best for your unique requirements. Even if you come to us with Shopify as your choice, our Shopify experts in Australia will check that it meets your needs, and if it doesn’t, we will suggest an alternative. At the end of the day, we want to build you a website that solves your problems.
At Concise, we don’t just build Shopify stores. We build online stores in other platforms also; in fact, we are platform-agnostic. Our focus is to honestly recommend the best eCommerce platform to meet your needs and your budget.
Shopify is a great platform for many reasons, but don’t rush into it. You need to ensure Shopify is suitable for your business and will give you the most benefits compared to other platforms.

What Business Would Shopify Not Suit?
Shopify is designed for eCommerce but can work for non-e-commerce businesses. However, there may be better options available to you like WordPress.
And if you already have a massive online business, then Shopify may not be the best option for you but you never know!
Highly complex purchase options or unconventional workflows in the purchase project may mean another platform would be more suited to you, but again, the only way to find out is to talk to us and we will give you an honest appraisal of what you can achieve on various platforms and the costs involved.
What Shopify Plan Should I Choose?
The answer to this question really depends on how much revenue you plan to make from your Shopify store.
Shopify’s business model is to get you in the door at $29USD per month, however, if you rely on a third party payment gateway such as AfterPay, PayPal or similar, then you will pay an extra 2% of sales in fees. Compare this to the $79 USD per month plan where you only pay 1.0% on third parties and 0.5% of revenue on the $299 USD per month plan.
This is all in addition to the fee charged by the payment processor such as AfterPay (6%) or PayPal (2%).
If your store is selling $20,000/month in sales, this is how it plays out:
It’s best to work out how much you plan to make per month and then do the calculations above substituting your monthly revenue to clearly see which plan is better value.
Of course, you can always start small and upgrade as you go along. That’s what most Shopify retailers do in the early days of their businesses.
There are some other features that you may use that are explained in the “Features” table on this page https://www.shopify.com.au/pricing. These features could also influence which plan is best for you regardless of the monthly cost.
There are alternative website platforms that do not have such high fees and we are happy to discuss these with you. Shopify is an excellent platform for the right business and right situation but the fees add up quickly in certain scenarios.
What Shopify Apps Do I Need?
This really depends on the features you plan to use on your website. If you have an idea of what functionality you would like to have on your website, we can recommend the best Shopify apps to achieve this. We can also guide you with the Shopify apps that other stores find helpful.
What Shopify Theme Is Best?
It’s difficult to give one answer since so many factors come into play. Generally, the best theme to choose is the one that converts the highest number of visitors into sales. However, there is far more at play than just the theme itself when it comes to conversion rate optimisation.
To help you decide on a theme, we are happy to show you examples of websites that convert better than others so you can decide for yourself if you like the theme.
If I Get You To Build A Custom Theme, am I locked into using Concise?
Absolutely not. If you engage us, then you will pay us for the time taken to develop a custom theme for you, however, once the theme has been built, the theme belongs to you. There is no ongoing cost associated with a custom theme and any good Shopify developer will be able to modify the theme in the future. (Please make sure they are good though; there are a lot of pretenders.)
What's the Difference Between Shopify & Shopify Plus, and Which One Should I Choose?
While they are both named Shopify, underneath they are vastly different platforms.
Shopify Plus is designed for enterprise-level eCommerce businesses and can handle thousands of transactions per minute. (As an example, look at JB HI-FI and Patagonia.)
Shopify Plus pricing starts at $2000USD/month and you get a lot of enterprise capabilities for your money.
If you run a significant online business, Shopify Plus might be perfect for you. Concise Digital is an experienced Shopify Partner, and we can talk you through the options so you can make a fully informed decision.
