Hiring help in the Shopify Experts Marketplace

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

There are two ways to find Experts to work with. You can browse service categories to find Experts who provide the help you’re looking for, or you can create a job, which matches you with an Expert for your needs.

Preparing to work with an Expert

Before you consider working with a Shopify Expert, you should be prepared to fully describe the requirements for your job. Here are a few ways to identify your requirements, and prepare for your first conversation with an Expert:

  • Do your best to familiarize yourself with any business or technical terms that are related to your job. This can make it easier for you and an Expert to discuss the work that needs to be done.
  • Do some preliminary research about the work. It can be helpful to find examples of other businesses who are doing something similar to what you have in mind. Make sure that you've clearly defined your job's budget, timeline, and results.
