Below is an example of how we structure our Figma before the handover to developers.

Shopify web development

As a Shopify web development agency, we develop Shopify websites with a headless architecture, meaning that the frontend (what users interact with) is decoupled from the backend (Shopify admin panel and CMS).

This offers flexibility for ecommerce platforms when it comes to tooling and integrations with 3rd parties, enables the possibility to reach peak page speeds, implement SEO best practices, and offer a superior content management experience.

Frontend

We use Remix framework to power the storefront, which is what users interact with.

It enables us to implement any sort of design, whilst maintaining top page speeds.

In combination with Remix, we also use Shopify's framework Hydrogen, to access ready-made functionalities like Checkout.

In fact, Shopify is also an investor in Remix.

CMS

We use Sanity to empower content teams to create an infinite amount of pages, reference products directly from the content, and decide on the layout of the page.

Shopify offers a plugin that enables real-time synchronisation with Sanity.

In fact, Shopify is also an investor in Sanity, and Tinloof is one of the first official agency partners.

Store Management

Shopify is used as the store management tool to manage inventory, discounts, products, and access analytics and the list of customers.

Deployment

We use tools like Vercel, Netlify, or Oxygen, to handle the deployment of your Shopify store.

Architecture

Our philosophy when it comes to technical implementation is based on simplicity and minimalism.

We avoid reinventing the wheel by using service providers to implement certain functionalities (e.g. CMS, Search, Authentication) instead of building them from scratch.

Tinloof is a research-oriented Shopify development agency (you can see that on our blog), and we always ensure to pick the best tool for each job. In fact, we use the same tools for our own site and products - we don't preach what we don't practice.

We also do not use a service if it's not needed, making sure to save subscription costs.

Below is an overview of the architecture of the headless commerce we build as a Shopify development agency.

Shopify application development

One of the main advantages of Shopify is its App Store, that offers a plethora of plugins that seamless integrate with your store to help you achieve your ecommerce goals.

For instance, Sanity is synchronised with Shopify via the plugin Sanity Connect, available for free on the App Store.

In some instances, however, you may not find the Shopify Apps you're looking for - but don't worry!

In such instances, you can tap into our web application development services to create a specific commerce app that fits your needs.

From Shopify Functions, to Checkout UI extensions or Purchase options, Tinloof can support you.

Shopify technical SEO

We support your digital marketing team by following the best SEO practices to help your products rank.

As a technical SEO agency, we focus on multiple optimisation parameters that can make or break your chances to rank on SERPs, including:

- Automatically adding schema about product data, reviews, and FAQs.

- Connecting with Google Merchant Center.

- Sitemap dynamic generation.

- Tailored URL structure, with an emphasis on canonical URLs when there are many variations of a product.

The list goes on, for instance if you enable localization or if you have breadcrumbs on your product pages.

How we work as a Shopify agency

As a Shopify development agency, Tinloof can support you with a variety of project types of works, ranging from design audits to page speed improvements.

Regardless of the task, we work closely with ecommerce businesses and share the same goal.

Roadmap and task management

From day 1 we set up a Notion page with a roadmap that includes the main migration milestones and a board to track our day-to-day tasks.


How we organize Shopify projects

Communication

We use Slack or Discord to make communication as fast and easy as possible.


Feedback

We work in iterations and ask for feedback as soon as we make progress. These small feedback iterations make it easy for everyone to be aligned and progress faster.
