Backend Dev

Shopify is an incredibly powerful commerce platform - but making it work for each and every brand is a unique challenge. There are external partners that need to be integrated, processes that need to be streamlined and/or automated and a host of other technical barriers that need to be overcome. That’s where our BED experts come in to make Shopify the perfect platform for your brand.


What is backend development?

While front end development deals with how your customers interact with your website, backend development deals with how your website interacts with the internet more broadly in order to help those customers do what they want to do. 

Focused on databases, APIs, logic, servers, architecture and more, BED connects your customers to their desired actions and your website to the internet as a whole and to services, platforms and functionality you need to maximise growth and profitability.

What can backend development do for your business?

Backend development is a foundational aspect of every commerce business with a focus on online sales. Simply put, without backend development, you can’t take payment, you can’t arrange delivery, you can’t do very much of anything really. 

However, not only is BED about delivering the basics, it’s also about augmenting. Shopify is an incredibly powerful commerce platform, but BED can make it the perfect platform for any brand by helping to connect it to external services and functionality.

Our backend development services

Although they have flat out refused to wear the ankle length leather jackets and tiny sunglasses we bought them, our backend developers are the exact kind of coding wizards you want working on your project. 

Data Migration

Data is at the heart of the modern commerce brand - it’s what helps drive decisions, it’s what builds budgets, it’s where your customers live. But it’s also important to your customers - it’s their history with your brand. We make sure to mark your moving boxes well, clean up and get it all to your new home in perfect condition.

Backend App Development
