Reckless becomes a Shopify Partner

We have put our knowledge to the test and successfully passed the Shopify Partner certification programme. Becoming certified has enabled us to not only show off our technical skills but also diversify our service offering.

Shopify Partners and Experts provide educational resources that are tailored to developing the technical skills needed to work with the Shopify platform. The Partner Academy is made up of eleven fundamental courses, developed by Shopify. These online courses are broken down into two overarching themes: Product and Business. Each theme has five or six courses with a formal exam associated with each course.

We have passed the required exams in the following topics:

– Product Fundamentals
– Business Fundamentals
– App Development
– Theme Development

“As a team, we have all been using Shopify for some time, however, this certification program has really put our knowledge to the test and ultimately enabled us to become a certified Partner which supports the agency in our growth strategy.”

The Product Fundamentals category of courses focuses on grasping the nuances of Shopify’s platform. This covered Shopify Fundamentals with the Development and Design Theming and Store Operations. These areas looked at the storefront to analytics and discovering the many ways to help migrations, automation and integrations. The design covered some striking commerce experiences whilst developing themes with Liquid, APIs and the Slate framework.

The Business Fundamentals category of courses focuses on learning the fundamental aspects of business in order to succeed as a Shopify Partner and expand our expertise. This covered Partner Program Fundamentals which also encompassed Sales and Marketing, Project Management and Pricing strategies. This information supports our existing structure for our clients but provided benefits of looking at how we can leverage our offering to have a positive impact on all our projects.
