Testing the Shopify site setup is the most critical step. At this point, we’re ensuring that the store is functioning correctly and that it provides an optimal user experience.
The most important aspects of the store we’re going to test to ensure that your Shopify store will be working as intended, are:
- checkout process,
- payment gateway,
- shipping options,
- and overall website functionality.
Testing the checkout process involves placing test random orders to ensure that customers can successfully complete their purchases without any issues (like payment failures or shipping errors).
Payment gateway testing is actually verifying that payments are being processed correctly and that customer payment information is being handled securely.
Shipping options testing ensures that the store's shipping rates and options are accurate and that customers can select and receive their purchases without any delays or issues.
Overall website functionality testing involves verifying all pages and features on your shop are functioning correctly - including links, buttons, and navigation menus.
With testing the Shopify store setup, we have a goal to identify any issues or errors before your store goes live, ensuring that your customers have a smooth shopping experience.
Training the shop owners
Training the shop owners to use their new Shopify store is our favorite step in ensuring that you, as a Shopify store owner, can manage the store effectively and make the most of its features and capabilities.
This training typically involves providing you with an overview of the Shopify platform, including the dashboard, inventory management, and order fulfillment processes.
The training may also cover how to use various features, such as discount codes, abandoned cart recovery, and customer relationship management tools.
You can also be trained on how to manage their store's content, write product descriptions, add images, and collections, as well as how to set up and manage payment and shipping options.
Effective training will help you to become more confident and efficient in managing your Shopify store. You will know exactly how to focus on growing your business and not spending money when encountering technical issues.
Most importantly, you will be taught to recognize common mistakes, such as overselling products, miscalculating shipping rates, or mishandling customer data, which can damage the store's reputation and profitability.
Releasing the new Shopify store is THAT milestone we want to reach with every Shopify store we start with you - it marks the transition from development to the production!
Before releasing the store, we will ensure that all aspects of the store have been thoroughly tested and any issues or errors have been resolved.

During the initial release phase, we will monitor the store's performance closely and address any issues or feedback from customers promptly. This may include making adjustments to shipping rates, updating product descriptions, or resolving technical issues that arise. But, you’re not alone!
YES, releasing the new Shopify store is an exciting and crucial step in the store setup process, as it signals the start of your e-commerce journey and sets the stage for future growth and success.
Post Release Support
Post release support is the final step of any Shopify store setup process as it ensures that your website remains functional, secure, and up-to-date after the initial launch. It involves providing you with ongoing technical support, maintenance, and updates to the website to ensure its continued smooth operation.
This support typically includes monitoring the website for any potential issues or errors, providing regular backups of data, installing security updates and patches, and responding to any user feedback or support requests. Post release support may also involve updating the website with new features or functionality, ensuring that the website remains relevant and competitive in the market.
