Stand Out From The Crowd

While almost 2 million Shopify websites exist, this means 2 million sites share the same theme options and customization tools. Making your business stand out can be difficult. You'll need to ensure your web design partner knows which themes to use and how to make adjustments to meet your business needs. With a MOCE website, your dedicated designer takes the time to get to know you and your business to tailor a site design for your customer base.


Oftentimes, the Shopify platform isn't being breached, but individual websites are being hacked and taken over by bad actors. With so many people using Shopify, people have figured out the best and easiest ways to hack those using the platform. There are articles and forums dedicated to helping people who have a site that has been compromised. MOCE is built with security in mind. Multi-factor authentication, locking accounts after too many password attempts, auto-blocking IPs that are making too many attempts in a period of time, password requirements, security questions for password reset ... these are all security practices in place to help protect your website from falling into the wrong hands. Even certain actions inside the admin system of your website require you to re-enter your password for security purposes.

ADA Compliance

Ensuring all site visitors are enjoying a good experience on your site is key. So making your site accessible to all users is important. The MOCE platform has taken ADA Compliance into account when building the platform and we continue to monitor and make adjustments. Additionally, our designers are trained to make design choices that will work best for compliance. If you'd like to achieve the same ADA Compliance on a Shopify website, it will cost you upwards of $200/year. You'll need to add an app to your store to handle the basics of site usability.
