Vander Group announced today that it has become a Shopify Plus Expert Partner. It joins a group of 70 hand-picked Shopify Expert Partners. Partners are selected from a worldwide pool of Shopify experts based on assessments of their portfolio and data related to their quality of marketing, development, design, deployment, and customer management services.

Shopify is a cloud-based commerce platform designed for a variety of sales channels, including web, mobile applications, social media outlets, online marketplaces, and brick-and-mortar locations. Shopify boasts more than 325,000 merchants based in over 150 different countries, and its Shopify Plus client list includes high volume giants like Tesla, Nestle, and Red Bull just to name a few.

Representatives from both Vander Group and Shopify are very excited about the recent partnership.

“Vander Group has been a Shopify Expert since 2014, and watching them grow their business throughout the years has been a rewarding experience,” said Alok Ahuja, Head of Plus Experts at Shopify Plus. “I’m thrilled to have them on our roster of certified Plus Experts, and excited to showcase all the great Shopify Plus launches they have planned for 2017 and beyond.”

Vander Group Co-Founder, Van E. Tucker, called it a “major milestone for Vander to be so closely partnered with the Shopify ecosystem,” and its Managing Director, Derek J. Sine, indicated that the goals of the Shopify Plus Partner program integrated well with Vander Group’s “broader mission as an end-to-end eCommerce solutions provider.”
