We used Alo Agency to develop a Chrome extension for our store that would enable us to add cart attributes to an existing order inside the admin. They are a pleasure to work with and we would recommend their services. We will certainly be using their services going forward next time we have a project that needs a real Shopify expert.

Austin executed website adjustments which enhanced overall user experience and aesthetics. He was very knowledgeable, helped create a clear project path, and ensured we understoood how to manage the changes ourselves once the projcet was complete. I HIGHLY recommend Austin and Alo Agency!

Chiefs Store

Have been working with Austin for a few months now on a variety of Shopify related projects with great results. He's great at coming up with creative solutions to meet our needs and patient in educating us on our options. Would recommend!


The work done by Alo exceeded our expectations.
We launched our new site during a very busy time for the store, and Austin was always there to troubleshoot any problems, even chatting directly with our customers to better understand their issues and always making our site better.
Our website traffic is in the top 1% of stores launched at the same time on Shopifyplus, and it is not in small part thanks to Austin's work.


Austin is as best as they come and a great person to work with - professionalism, project management, Shopify knowledge ... the list goes on. He completely developed my website ( on time and under budget. Selfishly, the only reason I didn't want to leave this review is so his schedule wouldn't get completely filled up with other projects. I promise you won't be disappointed with his talent. A+

Hedgehog Leatherworks

I was immediately impressed after my first phone call with Austin because his approach is to build a website that supports the business's objectives. That may sound like an obvious requirement, but I think it is rare to find a person who exhibits both an excellent grasp of business AND does awesome creative work. Usually, you find one or the other, but Austin has both. Artistically, he delivered a beautiful site. On the back end, he built a stable platform and guided me through a number of important decisions using data and sound logic as his compass. What more can you ask for? I will certainly be working with Austin on more projects in future.

UI Viral Vector Core Web

Austin was patient, understanding, flexible, and so very helpful from the start of our complicated project to the end. He was always quick to take care of any issues or bugs that arose and was receptive to questions. He provided solutions to several issues we came across and we are so happy with the work Austin created. Austin created in just a few short months what we had previously spent years creating with another firm. We'd choose Austin all over again if given the chance!


Austin of Alo Agency set me up with their fantastic and simple "Cart Attributes" Chrome browser extension and walked me through some functionality to get exactly what I needed from it. Very responsive, very helpful, all around excellent. Austin and Alo Agency are highly recommended.

Salutogenic Life

I'm very impressed with Austin's work on my Shopify site. He responded immediately and began working on the project within hours of sending payment. He took my feedback, made requested changes, and provided exactly what I was looking for. I'm happy to have hours available for future customization from Austin. Highly recommend working with him for your Shopify projects!


Austin is the ultimate all-star who is super organized, walks you through your options and executes. I just launched my site and would love to continue to work with Austin going forward. Austin was also available at critical times (i.e. right before official launch date) and stays proactive. We'd highly recommend Austin!


I really enjoyed working with Austin... he is very knowledgeable and professional, and offered more than just development. During the process my old site kept getting shutdown (panic for me!) but Austin deleted the malicious files (twice!) so i could still have a web presence while the new site was being built. I know i will be going to him for all my web needs here on... he's part of my team. Hire him!

lisA fRosT

Like you, I am busy. And I want things to be easy, fast, trustworthy, affordable and professional when it comes to my webwork... and website. I took a leap without knowing Austin. But I liked his reviews. I hired him to take my old Wordpress site and make it more user mobile friendly and connect with my already existing Shopify store. He was amazing. Very professional. Excellent communication skills. Great teacher. Very responsive. I highly recommend Austin and his work. Thank you.

Factus Games

I originally found Austin Hutchison browsing the Shopify Experts section. This is a very helpful resource for prospective store owners. There were many promising candidates listed. I cannot recall why I chose to contact Austin but I am very glad I did. His style was completely professional, organized and efficient.

We are a game company that needed some special features associated with selling digital licensing keys. Austin integrated the necessary plugins along with other other custom features flawlessly. The work was completed on time and bugfree.

In the end I got exactly what I requested and more.

Stone & Tile Shoppe, Inc.

Very responsive. Very professional. Went over and above the original task. Look forward to working together again in the future.

Austin has the knowledge and experience to develop a site that will perform exactly how you envision it to! Austin is project oriented, results driven and asks the right questions. Our project had short deadlines which he hit every time. I highly recommend Austin, he'll get the job done.

Dolan Geiman

I first contacted Austin about a web glitch that had stumped Shopify support as well as a couple developers that assisted with our initial site design and development. He called within minutes very early in the morning and then proceeded to fix the issue within minutes. We continue to use Austin as our go-to for all web maintenance and would highly recommend to others. He is quick, efficient, readily available, and just a pleasure to work with. We feel very fortunate to have found him via the Shopify Experts directory.

Life and Whim

Working with Austin was great. We've worked with a lot of developers in the past, but this was our first foray into a Shopify site and he made the process simple and seamless. I would highly recommend him - good value, very responsive and extremely knowledgeable. I would definitely work with him again.

Local Joe

I can't recommend Austin highly enough. I solicited Austin for what I believed would be "spec work" to add features to my site. What Austin delivered was above-and-beyond what I expected. Austin takes time to understand your business needs and to understand the intended purpose of the feature requests, including keeping in mind the end-to-end customer flow, in order to create the best possible execution. Austin is also very budget-conscious, and creates workplans and proposals that fit my needs at a specific time perfectly.

Percolator Letterpress Co.

We would highly recommend working with Austin on your Shopify site. He is very knowledgeable on its functionality and was able to explain how to integrate the features we desired for some custom features we needed. I really appreciated his taking the time to go over the features of Shopify and some of the limitations that we had to work around to achieve what we wanted to do. He was able to find good solutions without having to code something that could have cost thousands of dollars. He did an excellent job and created just what we asked for. We love our new site and he was also very friendly and easy to work with.


Austin was wonderful to work with. Prompt, efficient and solved my problem almost instantly. I look forward to working with him again.

Luxe Bloom

Austin did a great job building our website and providing us with his expertise and knowledge. Our old website was on a different hard-to-use platform so we reached out to Austin about moving us to Shopify. Not only did he do that, but he was able to provide us with a much better website and back office that helps run our business more efficiently.

When you hire Austin, you get more than just a great web developer, you also get a smart guy who knows a great deal about many different aspects of eCommerce who can build you a platform that will help you run your business better.

Athlete Camps

Austin was highly responsive and completed the desired work in quick time. Great communication and quality of work - would recommend 10/10

High Spirits Flutes

Austin - I highly recommend Austin H. as a Shopify Plus Expert and Script Developer. He finished our project ahead of deadline, on-budget, and with great accuracy and forethought. He was easy to reach and communicate with, he addressed our project's timeline concerns, and he effectively helped us strategize our promotion in a way that would easily work with Shopify Scripts customization. We would definitely hire Austin again for future Shopify Script development projects.

We're glad we found Austin to help us set up the complex ordering and shipping for our mail order rose plants.

He was easy to work with and we highly recommend him to anyone wanting a successful site!

Coconut Oil Tube

I've worked with many outsourced development contractors in the past. Austin is -- by far -- the most enjoyable and easiest to work with. He's fast, diligent, available, and confident. And, his code is elegant and performant.

Austin completed the project and without over-thinking unanticipated challenges or complications. We completed a fairly complex project in just one week of work.

Next time we need additional work, Austin will be the first person we call.

I can't recommend him higher.


Very satisfied! Completed the task I requested in record time. Highly recommended

Tender Loving Empire

It did a great job for Ridin High Rodeo Supply and our new store. I would highly recommend him and we will definitely use him again for our future needs.

Super Fat Laces and Socks

Austin is a very kind person for what he's done for my company.

I'm new to updating the store myself and for the past couple of months I've been teaching myself certain parts of the back store editing to keep everything up to date.

There was one thing I was having a problem with and I couldn't find any information regarding it, so I made a post on the Shopify forums and crossed my fingers someone had a clue of what I was on about, and lo and behold Austin comes in to save the day.

I was expecting maybe a couple of sentences on what to do, but he took time out of his day to log in to our Shopify account, target the issue and then type up a step-by-step guide, with screenshots, to explain what to do and made sure I would know what to do in future.

It's rare to find someone who's willing to go out of their way for so many people and not expect anything in return.
I just wanted to give my thanks to Austin and to let you all know you don't need to look any further when it comes someone who is as professional and courteous as this guy.

I'm glad I have someone like this lending a helping hand to our company and he will always be valued.

Thank you again Austin!

All the best

DateShop by Innovative-Match

"OUTSTANDING" is the word that comes to mind when it comes to Austin. In addition to being extremely proficient in the Shopify platform as well as all things e-commerce, he is one of the most responsive professionals I've ever worked with. I've been in tech for over 20 years. Austin was helping our team with a rapid launch, and he engaged on the day that we contacted him. He was available after hours, and turned around changes and requests literally with an hours notice. He got us successfully through a major crunch, and we were thoroughly satisfied. We'll definitely be using him for new features and other projects, and recommend him most highly!.

We consider Austin as our go-to Shopify consultant and will be working with him on future projects.

Ohio Earth Food Organic Fertilizer

I couldn't be happier with the work that Austin did for us. I bought this company and it came with an old website. The designer wanted $7000 to add ecommerce to it! I didn't want to loose the look of the site that I bought but that seemed expensive and i wouldn't be able to manipulate it without paying them more. I was introduced to Austin while he was still at OSU. He was so professional for his young age and followed up on every promise and timeline for a fraction of the cost!! He was able to compliment Shopify (which is amazing) so that you don't even know that you have left our site. He has been there for follow up work and just set it up so that our original site now reflects changes I make in Shopify (I have no idea how he did this but it works flawlessly!) I can't say enough but if you have the opportunity to work with Austin and Shopify you should do it.
