Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide hosting services?
What is included in “Tech Support Care Plans”?
Tech support care plans can be added on when you purchase managed hosting. I have 3 options available, The “Essential” Tech Care Plan, The “Premium” Tech Care Plan, and The “Ultimate” Tech Care Plan. You can read more about what is included in each plan here. Managed hosting must be purchased prior to add-on. Care plans are not sold separately from website hosting.
What are the different e-commerce solutions that you provide?
Currently, there are two ways that I build e-commerce stores for my clients. The first is to embed the store directly into your WordPress site. I can do this by using the popular WooCommerce plugin or I can do this by using Shopify “Buy Buttons”. If you choose Shopify Buy Buttons a membership would be required, paid separately to Shopify, for $9/month.
The second option would be to build a completely separate, free-standing, Shopify store hosted on the Shopify platform. If you already have a website, I would add a navigation link to redirect your visitors to your Shopify store for a seamless shopping experience for your customers. Hosting memberships with Shopify start at $29/month and are paid directly to Shopify.
Do I need my own hosting for Shopify stores?
Yes, when I build your freestanding e-commerce store using the Shopify platform you will be required to sign-up for a hosting membership with Shopify. That expense is separate from the service that I provide.
Shopify hosting memberships start at $29/month. You will not be required to sign-up for your membership until after your store is fully functional and the design work has been completed. Once your Shopify store is complete, and you have signed up for your monthly membership, ownership of your site will be passed on to you.
If you choose to only use Shopify “Buy Buttons” and embed them directly into your website you are only required to have the $9/month membership (also paid directly to Shopify). Keep in mind access to cross-sell on popular social media sites like Instagram and Facebook are not available with this option.
How do your web design payment plans work?
You will be required to pay a 50% deposit to secure your project. Then, the remaining balance will be paid once the project has been completed. No other payment plans are offered at this time.
