Monthly Theme Enhancement

Would you like a constantly evolving, always up-to-date website or one that slowly falls behind over time and needs a full re-build every few years?

Our custom theme is based on the default "Cornerstone" theme with many improvements and it is updated monthly with any changes made by BigCommerce as well as feature enhancements developed by our team. We are able to update the master theme whilst still retaining unique customisations made specifically to your website.

This service offers great value because by having multiple clients spread the development cost, it allows us to improve your theme at a dramatically reduced amount compared to if you were the only one contributing. You can however still commission unique updates in addition to benefitting from the global enhancements.

You can read through a record of our monthly enhancements further down the page.

The cost for our optional monthly enhancement service is as follows:

  Standard Plus
All Aylis Theme Enhancements.
All BigCommerce Development Updates.
Guaranteed compatibility with all future BigCommerce feature releases
Monthly phone call explanation.  
Up to 1 hour of inclusive theme tweaks.  
Prioritisation of roadmap requests where possible (most beneficial to everyone will always take precedence).  
Price £50+VATper month £125+VATper month
