We have talked plenty about all the wonderful things you can do with a Shopify store. From building beautiful and carefully-designed custom themes, to integrating all kinds of bespoke apps and functionality. But there’s another question that a lot of people want answered:

How fast is it to set up a Shopify store?

Okay, okay, we understand! You need your Shopify store by yesterday. You want to get selling immediately, and the fancy custom stuff can come later. Don’t panic – We’ve got you covered.

In this article we’re going to explore the MVP of Shopify: how you can get the best bang for your buck, in the least possible time.

The good news is: we can build your Shopify store fast. And in 2024, thanks to all the fantastic features that come built into Shopify as standard, even in just four weeks we can deliver you a powerful ecommerce platform for your brand.

Read on to find out how we’ll start you selling on Shopify – quickly.

‍Shopify Keeps the Basics… Basic

We have said it before, and we’ll say it again. Shopify gets the basics right. 

So before we go on to talk about some of the various fast-deploying features we can build onto your store, let’s review the tools you’ll have access to by default.

  • Easy-to-use admin: Right out of the box, your Shopify store comes with powerful and intuitive controls.
  • First class security: Shopify is fast, secure and reliable, allowing you to focus your efforts on running your business.
  • Infinite scalability: Shopify doesn’t care if you’re selling one item, or a million items! It’ll scale naturally in step with your brand.
  • Integrated payment gateways: From the moment you launch you’ll be able to accept payments from all major gateways, including the conversion boosting Apple Pay and Google Pay.
  • Advanced marketing tools: Shopify's email marketing app will have you managing email newsletters with ease, in no time at all.
  • Social integration: Shopify’s integration with social channels lets you reach your audience wherever they are.

So that’s the basics covered! Now let’s dig a little deeper, and see what your quick set-up Shopify store will look like.

The 1-Month Shopify Model

Here at Inspira, we have answered just about every Shopify-related challenge you can imagine! We’re one of the first Shopify development agencies to enter the partner program, and some of our team know Shopify better than they know their own children.

So if you were to come to us with the challenge of getting you up and selling on Shopify as quickly as possible – here’s what you could expect to see.

Fast deployment

Between Shopify’s logical, intuitive ease-of-use, and our years of experience and technical know-how… 

We can launch your Shopify store within ~4 weeks. From brief to handover.

You understand, of course, we can’t do everything we’d like to in that time. There’s always plenty more we could add, and usually we like to take the time to really develop a store to reach its maximum potential. But –

If your main priority is to start selling on Shopify fast, then we’ll deliver. We’ll have you launched in around a month… and it’s always possible to add those extra luxuries later, anyway.

Fantastic ready-to-go themes

For your one-month Shopify store project, we won’t have time to build a store theme from scratch. But that’s alright, because Shopify offers some truly fantastic themes, straight off the shelf.

(For example, did you see our comments on the recently released Trade theme?)

Our team of ecommerce design experts will take one of those out-of-the-box Shopify store themes, and style it to complement your brand. Even though we’re working to a deadline, with reduced time for luxuries, we’ll follow all best practices – ensuring it’ll be easy to grow from these foundations in future.

Powerful built-in tools

Even the fastest possible Shopify store will still benefit from all of the platform’s standard suite of cutting-edge built-in features

From an automatic discounts system that makes it easy to offer all kinds of special deals on your stock, to smart shipping upsells bound to help increase your average cart value… 

And that’s before we get into some of the specialist apps available in the Shopify ecosystem – industry-leading tools such as Klaviyo for email marketing, Yotpo for product reviews, Recharge for subscriptions, and the all-essential data backup service from Rewind.


While we’re here, we should mention Meta-Objects too. 

This Shopify feature launched last year, and we were so impressed that we included it in our roundup of the best new Shopify tools of 2023.

What Meta-Objects does is it creates a universal set of data-points which can be quickly applied throughout your store. So for example, once your Meta-Objects are correctly set for a particular item or listing, they’ll automatically appear alongside that same item elsewhere in your store. 

This means that it’s now faster than ever to spin up new landing pages on your Shopify store – a particularly handy feature for anyone working against the clock!

Streamlined growth with full support

The way we work, even if we’re creating your Shopify store as speedily as possible, we’re not going to build you into a dead-end. Every feature we deploy, every choice we make, will be designed with a view to enabling future growth.

We’ll get you selling on Shopify fast… but we’ll set you up for long-term success.

We can guarantee you a powerful introduction to Shopify. You will be able to enjoy on-hand expert advice from one of the longest-running Shopify development agencies. Meanwhile, you’ll have access to the full ecosystem of Shopify apps, with near-unlimited options when it comes to expanding your store in future.

The Verdict

We’re here to tell you that you haven’t left it too late. Getting started on Shopify in 2024 doesn’t need to be a long, drawn-out affair – in around four weeks, we can have you up and in action with a powerful, feature-packed Shopify store.

The MVP from Shopify is already leaps and bounds ahead of what some other ecommerce platforms can give you… and it doesn’t end there, with massive potential for future growth ahead of you.

But if speed is your priority, then we hope this article has given you an idea what launch day will look like for your new Shopify store.
