I’m launching an e-commerce web site that will likely be promoting excessive ticket objects and would require down funds from prospects to make sure dedication earlier than the product is produced. Our long run imaginative and prescient is to rent knowledgeable internet improvement agency to construct out a custom-made platform for us however we wish to try to avoid wasting cash to show out the primary few gross sales if we are able to. We will likely be itemizing over 100 objects.
Our hope to check our seat out there on Shopify however apparently Shopify doesn’t have plugins for deposit funds (and the workarounds I’ve discovered so far don’t appear to permit the normal “non-refundable however credible in direction of buy” deposits that we want).
My query to the group turns into: is there a price-efficient approach to check our room out there if we’re not geared up with a improvement ability set? My associate and I work in finance / advertising and marketing so we’re snug mocking up web site designs in PowerPoint for instance and prefer to assume we’ve an eye fixed for content material / design however could be beginning sq. one because it involves constructing it out in WordPress for instance. Is there an inexpensive workaround in Shopify for what we want? Is it price it for us to muck round in WP to try to construct the primary iteration ourselves? Or ought to we simply get with a agency to actually drive our imaginative and prescient to how we see it from the beginning? If we did rent a agency, it could be a completely staffed staff and now a one-off developer or duo.
