Our Success Stories

Fully Custom Store - Design Develop by Blackbelt Commerce
"Blackbelt Commerce is a great team to work with. They developed a website for Judith Leiber that is beautiful and functional. They are extremely knowledgeable in terms of site design, functionality, and SEO. They guided us and educated us along the way and kept us informed of progress with weekly (sometimes even daily) phone calls. Blackbelt met all timelines and deadlines and kept within budget. They were very accommodating and responsive to changes in design and scope and would always make themselves available when issues arose.
Blackbelt has been available post-launch to ensure that we are satisfied and that the site is working as we hoped. They continue to make suggestions on ways to improve our site and customer engagement.
We would highly recommend Blackbelt Commerce for all your website needs." Please check out our other reviews.

Service for Client:   Fully Custom Store - Design, Development, Support  for 80% of Falon's Products Customizable by her Clients "Starting this project I had a vison to completely update and redesign a 20-year-old website. Cesar and the whole team at Blackbelt Commerce agreed to help me with that vision and worked non stop to make that vision come to life! I was very demanding with all the details I wanted many of which didn't even exist on other Shopify websites! But I was never given limits on what was possible. Blackbelt Commerce problem solved and coded and created my wildest dreams. As a fully custom eCommerce company being able to offer my full product line on a customer-engaging site has changed how we operate for the better. While the process was complex I was always kept informed and knew exactly where we were on our timeline the communication and even the follow-up after we went live was the best customer service I have ever received. This is a company and a team that love what they do."

Choose the right eCommerce platform – BigCommerce or Shopify?

“The sooner we drop the ‘e’ out of ‘e-commerce’ and just call it commerce, the better.” Bob Willett, former President of Best Buy International and CIO of Best Buy

Online commerce is rapidly becoming the business norm, and it has created a digital transformation–so whatever area of trade you are involved in, having an e-commerce store is essential. Whether you’re starting out in business or are looking to expand your operation, finding the right builder for your online enterprise is a difficult decision. For most customers, it comes down to a choice between the two leading platforms: Shopify and BigCommerce.

Both platforms make it easy to sell products, regardless of whether they are physical or digital – online. Both platforms run in a web browser. The benefit of this is that you do not need to store anything on your desktop or laptop computer. Everything is stored in the cloud, meaning you can manage your business from anywhere in the world, just so long as you have an internet connection.

Both products allow you to build your online store without needing any design or computer coding skills. You simply choose your desired look based on your favorite Shopify examples or BigCommerce themes, upload your products along with the necessary descriptions and image gallery, set your prices, and then launch your store.

Both Shopify and BigCommerce employ a clean, user-friendly interface with a gentle learning curve that makes it easy for new users to get to grips with the system in almost no time at all. Although you don’t need to use a web designer when creating your Shopify or BigCommerce website, you do need an eye for good design. Furthermore, the pictures of your products also need to be of the highest possible quality if you want to ensure your store looks slick and professional.

This is where the Shopify Experts at Blackbelt Commerce comes in. As both BigCommerce partners and Shopify Partners, we can help you to refine your store, tweaking and customizing the themes or templates so that the final product is more individual and fully geared towards the specific needs of your business. Such as which theme and customization are ideal for a business’s brand.

You only get one chance to make a first impression, so it’s important that your online store is instantly appealing to potential customers.

“Customer service shouldn’t just be a department, it should be the entire company” Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos

Maximize your marketing efforts 

No matter how amazing your e-commerce store ends up looking, you won’t be able to grow your sales and build your business unless customers are able to find your store in the first place. Regardless of how amazing the products or services you sell are, your entire enterprise could fall flat if you don’t have the necessary marketing expertise.

At Blackbelt Commerce, the Shopify experts have been specialized in social media marketing – SMM, search engine optimization – SEO,  and Content Marketing & Content Strategies intended to help your business find new customers.

    • Raise your level of brand recognition.
    • Update your social media channels to increase customer interaction.

The Shopify experts can also help you to extend the reach of your brand by using the Shopify affiliate app to bring more potential customers to your site. Affiliate marketing is a significant source of revenue:

Yes, as long as your product/solution/service is relevant within the target audience and niche, affiliate marketing as well as referral programs will still be a thing and profitable in 2020. The reason most affiliate marketing programs don’t work is because they’re irrelevant, too pushy or sales-y. report by Quoate

First-Class Functionality by the Best Shopify Builder s

Having a wide range of products available on your online store is great, but if your store is difficult for customers to navigate, you will be losing potential sales. Regardless of which platform you opt to choose, The Shopify experts at Blackbelt Commerce can help ensure your customers enjoy a seamless user experience by organizing your products and collections in the most optimum fashion.

From BigCommerce templates that make the journey from product page to checkout as simple as possible, to know how to send customers a Shopify discount code to encourage them to return to an abandoned shopping cart, we can add the functionality you need to optimize your conversions. Let the Shopify experts at Blackbelt Commerce help you:

    • Install the most appropriate product filters.
    • Create ideal tags and product descriptions to help customers find what they are looking for.
    • Streamline your check-out process.

Feature-Rich but Fuss-Free All Done by the top Shopify Experts 

For owners of small businesses making their first foray into the world of e-commerce, it’s all too easy to be swayed by the latest fads and trends such as the use of animation, advanced filtering, or 360-degree product views and to spend time attempting to incorporate them onto their sites. Here is one of the top  3D + 360 product rendering created by the Shopify Experts.  We can turn your store into a true 3D and AR augmented supported eCommerce store–just talk to us. Check out this great implementation–The Blackbelt Commerce Shopify experts created the 3d rendering and included in this store

While such elements may help your site appeal to some potential customers, there are a number of e-commerce features that should be higher on the list of priorities when it comes to creating a Shopify or BigCommerce that will best engage customers. Such features include:

    • User-generated reviews.
    • Related items suggestions.
    • Detailed shipping information.

Studies show that the star rating of a product is a key factor behind purchasing decisions. Although you may think products with negative reviews will suffer poor sales, this is not always the case as products with only positive reviews are often treated with suspicion as it is assumed they are fake or that negative reviews have been deliberately censored.

Wishlists not only assist customers by helping them to keep track of items they may want to purchase, but also provide valuable insights for future marketing campaigns and assist with making suggestions for related items.

A user-friendly interface that provides clear and detailed shipping information is essential if you want to minimize the chances of potential customers ending their interaction at the checkout stage and abandoning their shopping cart due to encountering unexpected costs.

The Blackbelt Commerce team can ensure your Shopify or BigCommerce site is optimized so that the most popular e-commerce features are available to all of your customers.

Instant integration 

If you have a real-world physical shop as well as an online one, we can help you to link the two, ensuring that when items are out of stock, this information is available to online buyers as soon as possible. You can also make use of POS software to replace your traditional till. You will also be able to:

    • Save time by having your inventory sync automatically.
    • See a visual timeline of sales and orders, all in one place.
    • Use your tablet device to account for cash sales in your store.

Linking your online store to the real world, either by having a permanent physical location or by having occasional pop-up stores or live events, can bring you closer to your customers and add value to their transactions.

If you do have a brick and mortar store, adding find-in-store functionality to your website is one of the most popular e-commerce features around. For some shoppers, even same-day shipping isn’t quite quick enough, and they would prefer to have the option of reserving an item and collecting it from your physical store themselves.

Unless your products are truly unique, you are likely to be competing with other companies for the same customer base. Offering genuine additional value and providing them with enhanced levels of customer experience during their transactions can provide a significant boost to your business.

“The reason it seems that price is all your customers care about is that you haven’t given them anything else to care about.” Seth Godin, Founder of, former VP of Direct Marketing at Yahoo!

Picking a SaaS Platform – Will it be Shopify or BigCommerce?

If you’re still unsure about which platform would best suit your particular e-commerce business, both Shopify and BigCommerce offer a free trial period during which you can try out many of the features to get the best possible feel for what it would be like to run your enterprise from that particular platform.

Ultimately, the choice of platform is likely to come down to personal preference in terms of themes, templates, the ease of transition to the new system based on your existing platform or specific features, and options that make either Shopify or BigCommerce a better match for your specific enterprise.

With extensive experience in both platforms, Blackbelt Commerce is ideally suited to give you the best possible advice to let you make the decision that will help your business succeed.

Shopify Developer – How to Find The Best 

E-Commerce Website Development 

According to 2018 statistics, around 1.8 billion people shop online, and about 63% of all shopping journeys begin on the Internet. Even customers at brick and mortar stores browse through the Internet to find the latest reviews, statistics, and product videos before making a purchase decision. That’s why modern businesses must establish a robust online presence to thrive. Platforms like Shopify make this process relatively easy and affordable so you can have a website up in no time. Here are some reasons why you should consider investing in professional Shopify eCommerce solutions:  ·      Stronger Online Presence – A great website helps businesses promote their brand and stand apart from competitors. Every big and small business today has an online presence as well as a mobile website. If you want to gain an edge over others, investing in a good website is imperative as is maintaining it and upgrading it regularly. Companies miss out on a lot of traffic without a website, even if their business model relies on face-to-face service. Having a Shopify app can boost your online presence even further.   ·      Better Marketing Opportunities – A website is the foundation of all other digital strategies and techniques that you use. Many people wonder whether eCommerce marketing is the same as other online marketing practices like content, social media, search engine, as well as email marketing. Ecommerce marketing and other standard digital marketing aren’t mutually exclusive. A Shopify eCommerce website can use all these other digital channels to promote products and expand the business. This form of marketing reaches a broader audience and is more effective than most traditional approaches. You can target people online to promote your brand. ·      Reaching a Vast Audience – Store owners can reach a wider audience if they have a Shopify website and opt for eCommerce solutions. It is possible to target customers in different states and even sell to global markets through an online store. Traditional brick-and-mortar selling doesn’t offer this level of flexibility. Brick-and-mortar setups are of course, bound by location. Depending on the service or product you sell, this could be crucial to your revenue.   However, there are times when even businesses that believe they ‘need’ to stay local, can consider global expansion; it could allow them to expand into new avenues of the business.

Shopify-Powered E-Commerce Store – Why It Works 

Shopify is a specialized e-commerce platform that has become very popular in recent years. It has helped small business owners set up fast and efficient websites without investing a lot of time or effort. There are many such platforms available today, which makes choosing the right one difficult. Here’s a look at why it is a good idea to hire a Shopify developer for a reliable website:

 1. Specifically Designed for E-Commerce

Unlike WordPress and other such platforms, Shopify is specifically designed for e-commerce. Experienced developers can use it as a foundation to create effective point-of-sale systems and retail stores. A dedicated e-commerce structure gives business owners access to several tools that can help them run their company effectively and manage all online transactions smoothly. Most WordPress developers know the limitation of that platform and recommend Shopify to clients that are looking for an effective, reliable, and scalable digital platform through which they can reach wider audiences and increase sales.  

2. Top Scalable Platform 

A business grows and acquires more customers with time. Companies introduce new products, services, and categories regularly to improve their revenue. A website that works for you today may not have the same effect a couple of years down the line. Enterprise e-commerce needs enterprise infrastructure. You would need a system that enables you to serve exponentially more customers compared to what you started out with in the initial stages of your business, in addition to the related integrations, back-office operations, and support.  Next to customization, most clients ask our experts in Shopify whether the website we design will be scalable, so they don’t have to struggle when it’s time to expand their reach. Shopify provides a scalable platform that can adjust to your goals or targets. You can increase its size, downsize, or branch out based on business requirements. Take the limits off your business growth with a Shopify eCommerce platform that’s not just robust but nimble too.

3. Mobile-Friendly 

Mobile is a crucial aspect of running an online business. Most customers are comfortable carrying out all kinds of transactions through their cellphones, and some even prefer using mobile devices rather than a computer for shopping. Companies can create dedicated applications for this platform, but it is still a good idea to have a responsive website that performs well on mobile. Shopify provides a strong foundation for it and ensures your site will look good on all kinds of devices.

  1. Security – A Must in This Digital Era 

Security is also an essential factor to consider, especially with the implementation of policies like the GDPR. Governments and local authorities expect businesses to ensure their website is reasonably secure, which means you need to choose an excellent platform for this purpose. Shopify lives up to current industry standards when it comes to security, ensuring you have some protection from things like hacking, malware, data leaks, etc. A good developer for Shopify will build on this security framework to create a secure, embedded app. 

5. Blazing Speed 

Customers judge a company by its website performance, and they can be very picky. Most want a site to load under 3 seconds and will abandon it if loading takes more time. Modern-day customers have very short attention spans and lack the patience to wait for sites to load. Shopify has a good track record for loading speeds, mainly if you invest in good-quality hardware support and hire a reliable developer for Shopify designs. It has a robust infrastructure that provides ample support and cuts down on performance issues.  All these aspects go a long way in ensuring the speed, reliability, and functionality of your Shopify store.

6. SEO-Friendly – A must for Free Organic Traffic

Customers often find the products and services they need through search engines. Businesses that feature prominently on these engines are more likely to get good revenue. A website should be optimized for search engines to rank high enough and be visible, and Shopify makes it easy because it is a very SEO-friendly platform. A good Shopify app developer already has a stable framework to create a reliable website.   Many large scale businesses like Budweiser, Penguin Books, New York Times Shop, etc., use Shopify. This framework can support everything from small businesses to enterprise-level websites without any compromise in performance. The company also provides excellent customer service so you can get assistance for problems quickly.

Shopify Developer Hiring Process

Developers are an essential aspect of creating a website, even on platforms like Shopify. While business owners can create a functional website using the tools provided by the company, the results are often unreliable. A good Shopify development developer is familiar with the platform and can capitalize on all of the advantages this framework offers. Here’s a brief insight into the developer hiring process: 

1. Free Consultation 

We are the TOP Shopify experts – and we will provide Free Consultations. Free consultations are standard practice in the development world. Customers can get in touch with experts, share their goals, explain their target audience, and ensure the developers have a clear idea of what they need. You can reach experts through an online form to book a consultation before carrying out a face-to-face meeting. These consultations are constructive because they help customers determine whether they have chosen the right Shopify developer.

2. Submit Requirements to the team of experts at Blackbeltcommerce

 The next step is to submit detailed requires, so the developer has a good idea about your vision. A developer may ask you to fill out a requirement form with all of the details or answer a questionnaire to get a better understanding. Customers can get a tentative cost estimate at this stage so they can plan their budget accordingly. Nothing is finalized because most project briefs require a little fine-tuning before developers can start working.

3. Discuss Project Details

 The first consultation and requirements submission gives both customers as well as developers a clear view of the project scope. At this point, you can sit down with the designed developer to discuss project details like deadlines, deliverables, priorities, goals, and other such factors. Developers will discuss the final details, offer their recommendations, suggest alterations, etc. The purpose of this stage is to make sure the customer and developer are on the same page.

 4. Signing the Dotted Line to Hire a Shopify Developer

 Once all details are finalized, and customers understand everything that’s involved in the project, they can hire the developer. You get a dedicated expert who will keep in touch throughout the project. They will provide regular upgrades, keep you informed about any issues, provide a warning about delays, and so much more. These experts are your single point of contact so that you can ask them about everything from project progress to last-minute alternations.

Even an inexperienced business owner can create a simple website on this platform. However, professionals have a much better understanding of the process and know which tools to use. Here’s a look at the process:

·      Creating an Account – The first step is to create an account on Shopify. Developers do this through a partner program and create an account that gives them access to sophisticated tools that aid in the process. E-commerce experts can share their knowledge with new merchants. As a seller, you will receive tailored guidance and ongoing support from the top Shopify experts. 

·      Online Store – Experts then start setting up an online store based on the parameters discussed during a consultation. This involves adding products, setting up different collections, adding payment gateways, customizing product pages, installing plug-ins wherever needed, and more. Setting up an online store requires experience and skill as developers need to make sure all elements of the website like the partner program are in place. The structure and functionality are planned and set up based on the discussions the developers have had with the store owner. You can customize your store, the checkout, as well as back end with Shopify APIs and the Shopify App Store.

·      Choosing a Theme – The Shopify theme attracts customers and keeps them engaged. An outdated or generic theme can impact sales, which is why it is essential to select the right Shopify theme. Experienced developers know how to browse through the thousands of offerings available on Shopify to find one that fits a client’s requirements perfectly and can also provide theme customizations.

·      Editing the Details – The final step is to edit details like metadata, page titles, URLs, image tags, and other such factors. A Shopify developer will make sure your website is optimized for search engines before uploading it. All of these details can help your rankings and improve visibility. 

Once the Setup is complete, your developer will go through everything carefully to ensure they haven’t missed anything, and the Shopify website is functional.

6. Launch Day – This is the Most Exciting Time of Our Clients – and the Shopify experts will celebrate with you

If the expert is satisfied with the Setup, they will start the process of sending the Shopify website live. This isn’t as straightforward as clicking a button because developers need to make various last-minute adjustments and this is where their Shopify customization skills come in. Here’s a look at what happens: 

  •       Set up programs like Google Analytics, ensure all company information is accurate, organize payment managers, and make sure the sales channels are functional.
  •       Add provisions for taxes and shipping options to ensure customers get the accurate price and know what kind of delivery alternatives are available to them.
  •       Test the order system to ensure everything goes smoothly and provides a comfortable user experience.
  •       Add a domain name and sort through all domain-related processes like updating DNS code, removing storefront passwords, setting primary domains, etc.

Why Hire a Professional Shopify Web Developer?

Shopify makes creating a website easy and has several tools to support DIY development. But experienced business owners and experts in the field always recommend that companies hire a Shopify developer instead of creating an e-commerce platform without any expert assistance. Here are some reasons why:


·      E-Commerce is Complex– E-commerce websites are relatively complex. They include several elements like product pages for different sub-categories, tax calculation, shipping cost, and delivery time calculation, and so much more. Your website’s performance can suffer if these elements aren’t handled carefully. A professional developer knows how to create a feature-rich website suitable for e-commerce business.

·      Utilizing Shopify’s Potential – Shopify is a great platform designed specifically for e-commerce businesses. It offers myriad tools and features that can help you run an online store setup efficiently. Professional developers at credible development agencies take the time to discuss clients’ requirements, understand the demographic they are targeting and what the product offerings are before building Shopify websites that boost the clients’ business online presence.

·      Custom Development – Businesses need to stand apart from the competition to succeed and establish a strong brand presence. A unique and well-designed website can help with this process. We can customize your website, create fresh themes from scratch, and include unique content on your website while making sure your shopping cart performs seamlessly. All of these services will help you stand out and thrive.  

We will also help with any upgrades and modifications that you may need as your business grows. The team will also have a front-end developer. This professional will link together the aspects of technology and design. They package up back-end utility in a way that users can interact with the site easily. They take various website design files and then convert them into JavaScript (JS), HTML, and/or CSS code – these are the core elements of front-end development. 


·      Unique Features – Many e-commerce businesses require unique features that standard online stores don’t provide. For example, you may want to include wholesale pricing or multiple currency support. We can find and recommend applications, plug-ins, or create these features from scratch to improve website functionality for an online retailer.

·      Latest Industry Trends – The Internet is a dynamic place where trends change regularly. Search engines upgrade their standards and release new algorithm changes; customers change their design preferences, industries shift to accommodate new technological developments, etc. A professional Shopify development developer always keeps an eye on these trends and knows which ones will apply to your website. Many dropshipping business owners are now opting for Shopify websites.

·      Starting Strong – Businesses can’t afford to put out a lack-luster website, especially if they are in a highly-competitive industry. Modern customers are picky and won’t hesitate to seek out alternatives if your website doesn’t live up to their standards. Professional developers have the expertise to provide custom functionality. They will create a reliable, fast, and efficient platform, so you have a stable and robust foundation for your online presence. 

As you can see, there are several reasons to hire a professional Shopify developer or a Shopify Expert. These professionals have the skill, training, and experience needed to create stellar websites for you. A professional may seem like a significant investment at first, but a great website offers good returns. A well-made responsive website also requires less maintenance and provides more consistent performance on all devices like mobiles, tablets, and computers.

What Should You Look for in a Shopify Developer?

Shopify is a popular platform, so it isn’t surprising that it has a strong development community. Many business owners struggle to find the right fit and are dissatisfied with the experience.  It’s why they feel that the platform lacks something. But that isn’t the case. The Shopify platform can help to create excellent eCommerce design, but that can happen only when you hire a skilled and professional developer who has experience building Shopify sites.  Here’s a look at what you should expect from a professional developer:

1. Transparency  

Transparency in all aspects of development can help build trust and ensure everyone involved is on the same page. A good developer will offer straightforward advice, practical recommendations, and help you make informed decisions regarding the project. You should be able to determine just how transparent a Shopify app developer is during the first consultation.

2. Straightforward Pricing  

Website development costs can quickly get out of hand, especially if you hire the wrong eCommerce developer. Some professionals like to include all the bells and whistles, which can increase the cost of the website and sometimes affect its performance. Many developers don’t have a clear pricing strategy, so clients have to deal with exemptions or hidden costs. Find an expert who offers a precise estimate or has well-defined development packages. They should also be able to offer you the option to make additions or deletions from the services you might need, as you go. The idea is that you should work with a team that maintains transparency in their business dealings and provide upfront quotes. 

3. Great Communication Skills 

Ecommerce development agencies and clients should always have clear communication between them to ensure there’s a constant flow of information. Look for Shopify plus developers who are willing to communicate with you regularly and keep you informed about their progress. They should provide details about when they are available and what communication platforms they prefer. For example, some custom software development experts use tools like Skype to communicate clearly with their clients. Look for someone who is accessible via multiple communication avenues and is prompt and proactive in their approach.

4. Extensive Portfolio Check our Portfolio here!

Experience is the best teacher. Developers that have worked on multiple projects are more likely to create a successful Shopify website. Look at the expert’s portfolio carefully to get an idea about their design style and versatility. It is a good idea to check whether the developer has worked in your industry before and understands its unique demands. For example, if you’re a retail clothing business, look for experts that have developed clothing e-commerce websites in the past. It’s also necessary to check whether they can build apps if it’s something you think you would need in the future.

5. Top Customer Reviews for the Shopify Experts

The Internet has made it possible for clients to share their experiences and provide opinions on different businesses. This means you can easily find information on a developer online and see what past clients have to say about them. Look for an agency that has great reviews. While not every review needs to be 5-star, a higher average star rating indicates the web designers are skilled and experienced enough to help with your Shopify store development. You can also ask them to provide references and speak with previous clients directly as well.

6. Innovation by the SInnovative Approach 

Developing a website requires more than technical ability and knowledge. It also requires creativity, artistic intuition, and familiarity with the latest trends. Innovative Shopify website developers are: 

    1.  Well-versed in the latest trends and can create websites that live up to modern standards.
    2. Capable of creating great designs and unique websites that still deliver a consistent user experience.  
    3. Use technologies like 3D product rendering to show clients what they can expect from the project.
    4. Have ample experience in SEO and know how to create websites that live up to the latest search engine standards.
