Award-winning eCommerce agency blubolt, is delighted to announce it has joined Shopify Plus as an accredited agency partner. Already synonymous with building exceptional eCommerce websites with their own bluCommerce platform, this new platform partnership brings blubolt's expertise to high-growth, high-volume companies seeking the agility and control of Shopify Plus.


With well over a decade of experience delivering world-class eCommerce websites, blubolt has built a knowledgeable team of Shopify Plus developers led by Leigh Barnes, Frontend Manager and resident Shopify Plus expert at blubolt. "Shopify Plus allows retailers the flexibility to adapt to the market, backed by enterprise-level stability and support,' said Leigh.

Long-standing client, Teapigs, have already benefited from blubolt's Shopify Plus expertise. Tasked with communicating Teapigs' friendly and approachable attitude to the world of tea, blubolt delivered a new website with a playful and intuitive user experience, a custom-built subscription service and a "pick-n-mix" bundle builder where customers can build their own tea selection box. The results from Christmas and Cyber Weekends were clear: 60% increase in conversions, 250% increase in transactions, 350% increase revenue and their biggest Q3 ever.


''The Shopify Plus reporting features are brilliant, providing immediate performance insights that previously took hours in building custom reports. There are also customer service features that make life much easier for my team and our customers,'' said Reece Downey, eCommerce Manager at Teapigs. 'I could go on forever; migrating to Shopify Plus with blubolt's support is the best decision I've made in 6 years with Teapigs.'
