We’re Velstar. Shopify Plus experts, UX creatives, growth marketers.

In 2015, Velstar CEO, Dan Sheard, was working to create websites for some of the largest corporations in the world, when he noticed that there was a gap in the agency ecosystem. Shopify was making waves in commerce, but - unlike Magento and others - was underserved by dedicated specialists. In 2016, Velstar was born.

Dedicated to becoming the leading global Shopify agency, we began to focus solely on developing commerce sites for one platform, convinced that it had the most to offer the SMEs that quickly became our bread and butter.

Since 2016, we have found a niche in which our talents have had the most impact, and which allows our people to drop all pretence and embrace our quirkiness, passions, and commitment to the highest standards of service and ethics.

To better serve our client's marketing needs, the amazing commerce-first marketing agency WeInfluence was purchased in 2022. Shorty after, realising that we had unconsciously become the agency for lifestyle brands, we embraced the responsibility - and also began our efforts to become a B-Corp - in 2024.

So, whether your target customer is an organic food enthusiast, a fashion-forward explorer, an adrenaline seeker, a dog lover, or you just want to become more than a one-off purchase, our team of seasoned Shopify experts, armed with decades of collective experience, is dedicated to elevating brands just like yours.

As your commerce partner, we’ll guide you to the best technology vendors spot opportunities for transformation, and make sure you’re making the most of your tech stack.

Your Core Team.
