Plates is our template system of choice. It’s a native PHP template system that’s fast and easy to use. Template systems can be used to many purposes, however I will talk about using it to create a simple bilingual website.
Some time ago we created a Shopify Manual, which explains how to use the platform.
In most cases, companies do not have a dedicated online store person, so they need to train a few people, if not the whole team. The manual was created to help with that (and to reduce the quantities of emails asking about adding products, but you didn’t hear me say that).

Recently we’ve heard that a lot of businesses in our area have problems with Web Designers taking money for projects and not delivering anything. We are a new company, and as such we don’t have a huge portfolio of happy clients, so we needed to address this issue so people are more willing to trust us. We don’t want people wondering if we’ll actually do the work they are paying for, it’s bad for PR and the lot.
We already had a system to keep track of all the work we are doing, including different projects, clients, bugs and the lot. We decided to use that same system, upgraded a little, to incorporate milestones, and client logins.
