With the help of our professional design team, and one of our pre-built Shift4Shop Core Premium Themes as a basis, you can be confident that your eCommerce website will stick in customer's minds long after they leave.
The Ultimate Theme Customization involves changing every essential design element on your site to ensure a fully branded experience. It's a quick and affordable way to turn a professionally designed Shift4Shop theme into your business's one-of-a-kind website.
Here's a quick summary of what's included:
Within your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager or the Shift4Shop Theme Store, select a Core Premium theme that you'd like our designers to work from. If a Shift4Shop Premium Theme has not been selected, our project managers will assist on the selection of a Core Premium theme that effectively showcases your company and promotes your products.
Throughout the design process, you won't have to worry about being left in the dark about its progress. Your project will be assigned to a dedicated Project Manager to be your single point of contact and coordinate all the milestones of the design process, guiding you through every step of the way as our team customizes your website.
Your dedicated Project Manager will review with you a streamlined questionnaire to collect the necessary details for changing the selected Shift4Shop Theme to a unique design that reflects your company identity. Since each theme is unique, questionnaires will be tailored to the specific theme that you have chosen to be customized.
Once you've answered all the necessary questions provided by your Project Manager, we can begin developing the theme design. Our team of designers will move forward and apply the desired changes to your selected template, based on your input from the questionnaire. This can include, but isn't limited to, your chosen site color scheme, background, and site-wide fonts, home page banners and more to compliment your store name or logo, and brand reference.
One of the first opportunities for showing off your products in action and brand's aesthetic is through the large home page carousel banner. Rather than struggle with designing your own banners, our talented designers can create three (3) banners that will rotate through the home page carousel on your website. These banners could have information about your company, products, or feature top selling products that will link directly to the product page. This is a great way to run promotions, feature best-selling products, or show off your company in an engaging way.
Our designers will create banners that will replace all default banner sections on the home page of your website's theme. Promotional banners typically appear below your home page carousel, and could have information about your company, products, or feature top selling products that will link directly to the desired product page. This is a great way to run promotions, feature best-selling products, or show off your company.
To prevent overloading your navigation menu (and customer in the process), a dynamic drop-down menu allows you to offer many subcategories for products and provide customers with an efficient, clean navigation system. Best of all, because its dynamic, it will update automatically when you make additions or changes. If your chosen Core Premium theme doesn't already come with a Dropdown Navigation Menu, our designers will implement it into your custom theme.
Linking to social media sites for your business is important for both SEO and brand trust. Many customers actually look for social media links as soon as they visit a website to determine whether the business is legitimate - a social media presence helps to establish that essential brand authority. As part of the customization service, we will link to your social media accounts directly from your website via social media buttons, giving customers easy access to your profiles.
When navigating a typical website, the header will gradually move out of view when scrolling down the page. This can be inconvenient for some users, who are then forced to scroll all the way back to the top to navigate your site. With the Sticky Header enabled, you can ensure that your navigation remains visible at all times. This design feature will lock your header into a fixed position and allow it to remain at the top of your browser window even when scrolling. By keeping the header "stuck" to the top of a customer's screen, they can conveniently navigate your site's menu and navigation links without having to scroll to the top every time.
Static product images and banners can look great; but they have the potential to be elevated with a smooth and subtle animation. Catch the attention of your customers with beautiful page transitions/animations of your products photos and promotional banners. Custom images can be made to fade in, slide in, pop in and more, creating an engaging and layered look.
Once our designers have finished implementing your requests into your custom design, a mockup will be provided for your review prior to development. If you have any issues with the mockup, or would like anything to be changed, you have available 1 round of revisions before the design is finalized.
Note: This service does not include any customization to Shift4Shop's features, changes to layout already defined by the Shift4Shop's Theme, or changes to the existing image elements within the selected theme.
Every online store, business and website theme is different. Because of this, it's impossible to provide an exact timeframe for completion that will fit every theme customization project. Our estimated timeline for project completion is as follows:
Note: Any cancellations after 30 days are non-refundable. After first contact with the Project Manager, cancellations can receive 50% of the total amount of the project as credit towards your Shift4Shop account (if within 30 days of purchase).
