Hiring help

The Experts Marketplace connects you with Shopify experts who you can hire for complicated or difficult tasks related to building your business.

There are two ways you can hire experts within the Experts Marketplace:

  • Browse services and directly contact experts by requesting a quote.
  • Create a job and get matched with experts. You can then pick which expert you want to work with.

If you create a job or request a quote, you’re not committed to hiring an expert. You decide whether they're right for the job and whether you want to work with them.

Planning to hire an expert

Before working with an expert, be prepared to describe the requirements for your job. The following best practices can be considered when planning to hire an expert:

  • Familiarize yourself with any business or technical terms related to your job. This helps you and the expert discuss and understand the work.
  • Do some preliminary research about the work. For example, you can find examples of other businesses who are doing something similar to what you want.
  • Clearly define your budget, timeline, and the results. Share as much detail as possible so the expert can give you an accurate quote.
