Freelancing as a Shopify Developer

Shopify is an e-commerce platform developed by the Canada-based and publicly traded company Shopify, Inc in 2004 for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems. As one of the most-used e-commerce frameworks in the world, Shopify offers online retailers a suite of services including payments, marketing, shipping, and customer engagement tools, all with the goal of simplifying the process of creating and running an online store. The main platform in competition with Shopify for easy e-commerce deployment is Magento. Shopify developers are usually front-end web developers who specialize in design-focused development to create sophisticated online storefronts. They are responsible for developing, maintaining, and improving e-commerce websites, and are capable of establishing integrations between an online storefront and third party services like Amazon and Snapchat, customized to the needs of a business.

Freelancers who are skilled in Shopify can make a salary of $81,900 per year, or an hourly wage of $45. While the freelance Shopify developer hourly rate can vary based on where they live, remote Shopify developers can also command different Shopify contractor rates based on their years or quality of experience.
