Founded in 2009 by Scott Sanders (left) and Ben De Jonge (right), The Cut is a digital-first agency specialising in the development of software, dashboards and Shopify ecommerce websites.
The Cut has worked with Shopify since 2010. The agency was awarded Expert Partner status in 2017, and then Plus Partner status at the end of last year, becoming the only agency in Perth to hold this level of partnership.
Shopify is a leading ecommerce platform that gives businesses the best product management and transactional experiences plus the peace-of-mind of automatic security, feature and version updates. It allows business owners to focus on marketing and management, rather than dealing with technical issues, updates and bug fixes.
Shopify’s core offering is all about making ecommerce as accessible and simple as possible for businesses from startups to fast scaling international operations. Shopify Plus is Shopify’s enterprise offering, created to deliver an exceptional and scalable experience to big businesses.
Sanders said the partnership is a validation of a long commitment to the best ecommerce platform available. He said it gives The Cut the capability and access to resources and support to help fast growth businesses looking for expertise and ongoing design, development and sales conversion services.
“We choose technologies carefully, based on the benefits they offer, robust performance, security and the ability to customise. Shopify ticks all of those boxes and more.”
“We have worked hard to be invited to be Perth’s only Shopify Plus agency. We’re happy to be part of the Shopify Partner community, but most of all, we’re excited to help businesses improve performance, increase engagement and grow sales. Those objectives are what drive us.”
The Cut has been trusted by companies including Mundella Foods, Abode Real Estate, Rio Tinto, Woodside, Cancer Council WA, Stateswim Systems, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Department of Tourism WA, Visit Peel and big ecommerce brands including Flat Tummy Co, Sneaky Vaunt and Bamba Swim Pty Ltd.
Kayla Fallace, CEO of Bamba Swim, said they had worked closely with The Cut to optimise their ecommerce store.
“Our goal was to improve customer navigation with an emphasis on mobile, because most of our traffic is from Instagram. The Cut were very hands on, offering suggestions based on their latest knowledge as well as offering updates and support throughout the execution. We have noticed a significant increase in conversions, and had such a great experience that we will be working with The Cut again on an international store for our growing overseas market.”
