Why wouldn't I just hire a Shopify Expert?

Hiring a Shopify expert may seem like a viable option, but there's a distinct advantage in partnering with a team like ours at +5 Designs. Here are a few reasons:

  1. Collective Expertise: As Shopify alumni, we bring a breadth and depth of knowledge that is often unmatched by individual experts. We've handled a variety of situations and can employ diverse strategies to help your business grow.
  2. Simplicity and Efficiency: With us, there's no need for lengthy proposals, time-consuming hiring processes, or unnecessary meetings. Simply submit your requests, and we'll get to work. We provide efficient and effective solutions with complete asynchronous communication, giving you more time to focus on your core business.
  3. Cost-Effectiveness: Instead of paying an individual expert's rates, you get access to our entire team's knowledge and skills. This means you receive more value and a wider range of services for your investment.
  4. Quick Turnaround: With a team approach, we can address multiple tasks simultaneously, leading to faster turnaround times. Our average turnaround time for requests is just 3-4 days. For more involved requests, you will receive daily updates.
  5. Versatility: Our team is proficient in various aspects of Shopify. This means we can provide a comprehensive solution to meet your diverse needs.

In essence, while hiring an individual Shopify expert could be beneficial, partnering with us provides a more versatile, cost-effective, and comprehensive solution for your ecommerce needs. Plus, our streamlined process takes the stress out of managing your online store.

Shopify Alumni? How?

We have a range of knowledge we built while working at Shopify for over 5 years.

Some of the roles that we held during our time at Shopify include-
- Merchant acceleration / Team operations for Support

- Plus Support Specialist

- Plus Support Team Lead

- Theme Support

Are the requests truly unlimited?

Yes, well kinda. Each subscription gets invited to a personalized ClickUp board and you start adding in as many requests as they want, then each request will be fulfilled one at a time.

We are also not able to build out custom Shopify apps, due to time constraints. However there is many ways to get around using a Shopify app.

Can I cancel my plan?

Absolutely. You can cancel your subscription at any time. There are no long-term contracts or commitments required, so you are free to stop using our service whenever you choose. If you decide to cancel, please notify us in advance so that we can assist you with the process and answer any questions you may have.

How quick are requests finished?

Plus 5 Designs aims to respond or gather more information to all requests within 24-48. However, some complex requests may take longer to complete.

Why are there limited spots?

To ensure that our team can maintain the highest quality of service, we limit the number of clients we take on at any given time. If there is a need to accommodate more clients, we will hire additional designers and developers to make sure that our quality standards are never compromised.
