A Business-Minded Agency and eCommerce Powerhouse



These days, anyone can “design a website.” Website design platforms make it increasingly easier to design a pretty site in just a matter of minutes. However, there’s significantly more involved in proper e-commerce web design than just looking aesthetically pleasing.

Our experience has taught us that each and every client has different needs, goals, tastes, etc. We design beautiful, eye-catching websites. We also make sure that our clients’ sites are highly functional and optimized to maximize conversions and increase sales. 

Gapstow Design Company designs (almost) exclusively using the Shopify platform.  After years of using many other platforms, Shopify has shown itself to be the most reliable system that not only provides a beautiful website for our customers, but its backend is simple and very user-friendly.  This gives us confidence that once we design your beautiful website, you'll be easy to use it with minimal outside help.

Why we choose to develop with Shopify:

Shopify is a web-based eCommerce application that makes it simple to set-up and manage an online shop, perfect for any size business. It offers product inventory management and order management, as well as content management, and payment gateway integration. It also provides a reliable, secure shopping cart solution for your e-commerce website. The shopping cart software allows you to accept credit card payments by integrating with Australian payment gateways like eBay and SecurePay as well as PayPal.

Inventory Management

Add your products and variants, upload their photos, set stock levels and more.  Shopify even allows you to manage inventory across multiple marketplaces like Amazon and eBay.

Track order status

Keep track of which orders have been paid for, shipped or delivered. Not only does Shopify allow you to keep track within it's CRM, but it also integrates with most external software suites for additional functionality.

Content Management

The built-in CMS feature allows you to create webpages, blog about products and more with little to no coding experience needed.

eCommerce Analytics

Learn where your businesses' customers come from. We also integrate with Google Analytics for advanced analytics - including Google's Enhanced eCommerce Analytics.

Shopify App Development

Shopify app development is the process of making an application that is used to link your Shopify store to an alternate source or process to achieve a desired task. Creating an application sometimes is the only way to accomplish a desired function or goal. You can increase the performance of your Shopify store by developing an app, connecting to third party databases (such as CRM and ERP systems), and much more! Customized Shopify app development can also be used to merge functions that may not be available yet on Shopify, or to create various automated features. A lot of the time, a custom app is the perfect and simple solution to a problem that may initially appear to be fairly complex.
