    Some of the customizations we developed was a handing a huge database of "definitions" and organizing them in a way that the customers could easily access and understand while keeping the uniformity of the store clean and performing fast. Another customization feature we added onto Shopify 2.0 update was pdf downloads/ links, and videos that were specific to each product he was offering.
    This was a lengthy process to organize and deliver but we were able to handle it with some heavy code in the back end which did not slow his store speed as well.

    This client already had a following, therefore, he was getting sales with his old theme using x-Cart. However, his conversions have increased and his average order value as well since the launch.

We Focus On Speed

On mobile was one of the most unique features, as it involved a lot of time and effort to allow only on mobile a unique menu slider that was different than on desktop view.  Note that some of these speeds  we cannot control  based on  added apps or scripts. 

On their product page, we made the fonts extra small to cater to their customer audience and greyscale the product descriptions for a cleaner UI/UX design.
