Umbraco + Shopify 🤝
Our unique hybrid approach offering the best of both worlds
This powerful, proven solution provides the perfect balance of best-in-class eCommerce functionality, with the unrestricted, creative freedom of Umbraco’s content management system.
This easy to manage and expandable platform offers our clients the best of both worlds in simultaneously allowing users to explore your brand story; diving deeper into rich content themes such as heritage, values and community - whilst allowing repeat visitors who know they want to swiftly search and buy through Shopify’s familiar, slick, mobile-optimised checkout process.
Mapping your brand story + UX
Beyond brand discovery learnings, our creatives can start mapping out key user journeys, wireframes, UI design concepts and ultimately your overall eCommerce UX – 100% tailored to your brand, offering and selling proposition
Engaging eCommerce opportunities
This hybrid approach allows us to more effectively weave buying opportunities into non-eCommerce pages such as blogs and opens up the opportunity for stunning, content-rich and made-to-measure product pages; best showcasing your passion for your products.
Unleashed content planning
Umbraco’s robust open source content management platform allows us to take a content-first, user-experience led approach to build a bespoke website specifically optimised for our clients’ needs. Allowing for the inclusion of additional and rich product info, images, video, process etc.
Simplified Shopify management
Shopify makes the product management easy -SKUs, weights, quantities, discount codes, shipping rules etc. - can all be monitored and controlled through Shopify’s slick, easy-to-use dashboard. We then integrate these with Umbraco, using Shopify’s robust Storefront API.
Enterprise level integrations
This enterprise-level option is also better suited to complex and custom 3rd-party integrations as opposed to dealing directly with Shopify. We love helping clients leverage all the benefits of the Shopify engine whilst keeping ongoing Shopify fees to a minimum through this unique Branding-UX-eCommerce solution.
Focus on simple purchasing
On checkout, the user is funnelled through Shopify’s familiar, slick, mobile-optimised checkout process. Take advantage of a host of eCommerce features to boost conversions and life-time value potential: multi-currency, wholesale / retail credit purchases, seamlessly handshake with CRM platforms to sync products & orders.
Simple yet powerful CMS
Umbraco is a licence-free, open-source CMS built on the trusted, stable & secure Microsoft platform - with over 500,000 active installs across 198 countries and counting - allowing your site to innovate and adapt to your needs and grow with you.
Primed for targeted search
Included with Umbraco is our powerful SEO module, which removes all on-site barriers for targeted, natural search and means your pages and content can work harder to build your brand, authority, traffic and conversions online. As well as SEO, our experts can help with a wide range of strategic marketing activity.
This hybrid approach leverages the power of Shopify to an enterprise level without the fees to match - our most powerful eCommerce solution as limitless as your ambitions.
