Yes, you can buy cheaper Shopify web design, but the weird thing is that the quality and the value for money you receive is very varied. In some cases, like with home decorating, you know that paying less means a cheaper and/or not-as-nice job. On the other hand, when you pay less for utilities like electricity, then it is all good. When it comes to web design for Shopify, it is up in the air as to if you get a “Not-as-nice job,” or if it is “all good.”
Doing As Much As You Can By Yourself
This is a top tip, so it appears at the top of this article. If you are looking for a better and cheaper price for your web design services, then try to do as much as you can by yourself. In usual web design cases, this is not possible. After all, you can hardly start coding your own website if you don’t know the programming language. However, when it comes to Shopify, you can do quite a bit before actually needing your designer. You can pick templates, or at least draw up a few ideas of how you want your website to look and operate. If the designer has less work to do, then it stands to reason that you pay a little less.
Paying Too Much
There are several ways that you may pay too much, and the worst is when you hire a low-quality company that does a terrible job but still charges you a massive amount. You can try getting quotes from different companies. Don’t go for the lowest quote. Instead, try to take an average of the quotes you were given. The average will give you an indication of the amounts you should be paying, so that you may pick a quote that is fairer.
Paying Too Little
The reason the tip above suggested you pick a quote nearer the middle rather than picking the lowest quote is that it is possible to pay too little. If you pay too little, then the job may not be done correctly. However, the worst outcome is that it is a scam, and the company charges you a little, but then charges you again when they are halfway through because they claim a new problem appeared that they couldn’t have anticipated. Do beware of the lowest quotes and ask yourself (or them) how and why they are able to charge so little when their competitors do not.
Hiring Genuine Professionals
If you hire genuine professionals, are you going to overpay for your Shopify web design? If you opt for a company like the Collective Fab Agency, then no, you will not overpay. Get in touch with them, and if the team at Collective sees that your seemingly big project has a pretty easy fix, then they will offer that easy fix and charge you a small amount. On the other hand, if there is a lot of work involved, then they will do the work and charge you accordingly. It is not about getting the cheapest possible price with the Collective Fab Agency, it is about getting good value for money, which is what you get when you hire their team to help you.
