About Pogodan

We're a small web development firm based out of Asheville, NC, working on e-commerce applications since 2010 and we've been developing for the Shopify platform since 2014.

We've built custom solutions for dozens of Shopify stores, including applications and storefront features making extensive use of the full Shopify API and platform functionality, like automated event (webhook) processing, advanced admin management tools, specialized dynamic front-end features, custom shipping (carrier services), complex 3rd party integrations and multi-tenant installable apps.

We've dealt with the nitty-gritty of building robust, effective Shopify solutions, down to optimizing for the API's leaky bucket rate-limit across parallel background workers doing large batch jobs, undocumented API additions and gotchas and "bank-shot" workarounds to tricky platform limitations. If it can be done, we've already done it or we'll figure out how.

We've built our own set of in-house tools to optimize Shopify development, allowing us to deliver on everything from small fixes and tweaks to a storefront to large, complex custom applications.

Custom apps at competitive prices

We've built our own Shopify app hosting platform that is designed to help us streamline the creation and maintenance of Shopify apps. This means that we can produce complex apps at very competitive prices, without skimping on quality.

Our hosted platform

All custom applications require hosting, maintenance and security updates... the list goes on. So the idea of commissioning a custom app can be intimidating - it's a lot of technical overhead to take on for a small business. That's why we take care of all that for you, on our custom platform that's built just for hosting Shopify apps. So you can feel safe knowing that your app is being monitored and maintained on our platform.

Bespoke Shipping Services

If you're being held back by the available shipping options on Shopify, we can help.

We've created custom carrier apps for clients who wanted to charge only for certain categories of product, charge different rates per product-variant, use a custom algorithm to calculate freight rates, and more.

C&D Pet Products

I was in a bind after another Shopify developer flaked on me while building a custom shipping app for my store. I reached out to Pogodan and Lisa responded right away and put my mind at ease. Communication was clear, price was fair, and they were able to accommodate my need for quick turnaround.

The app works great, and I feel good knowing it's built on a maintained platform and not as a one-off thing. If you need a custom carrier services API implementation for your store, you can't go wrong with Pogodan! They are at the top of my list the next time I need development help on Shopify.

Nick's Truck Parts

Our site required a sophisticated but atypical product filtering device to allow our customers to drill down from many many items to just a few targeted items within a product category. It was a project most Experts would not tackle because of the complexity and skills required of the task.

Pogodan and their team took the time to understand what we needed, then propose and estimate a solution. They delivered our solution in a matter of days and came in under budget. Not only were their skills top-notch, but their customer service was excellent as well.

The project that we needed had a very tight deadline and it was met is where I start. The reason it was successful is because they listened and UNDERSTOOD what it was that we needed to happen. Whenever I gave more direction or changed something it was accomplished without having to repeat everything again. If it wasn't done, it was because what I was considering would cost more than it was worth to me as I considered proposed alternatives. My final billing was slightly more than the estimate, but with changes that we made after we started, it was actually expected and I believe fair. I am definitely going to continue to work with Pogodan on other projects in the future as they have earned my trust.


Five Star Experience with Pogodan, efficient, knowledgeable, cost-effective, polite, helpful. What more could I ask for. Many thanks, Lisa

Jordan Samuel Skin

Once I posted my issues, they got contacted me asap and were able to fix my issues easily and quickly. The work was 100% as they said it would be, and their response time was beyond prompt. Thank you.


I hired Pogodan to build a Shipping App for my Shopify Website for over a 5 week period. Pogodan did a lot of things very well. First, they came up with a clear plan and made sure not to go a dollar over budget. Second, they were in constant communication to explain updates and discussed different scenarios to make sure the App worked just right. Third, Pogodan made sure to test and re-test until the program was in perfect working order. We were very happy with the results and will use again.

So Choix

Lisa and Dan have been fantastic developers to work with on our shop. They have a deep understanding not only of Shopify, but other web services and how to tie those together in order to create the customized applications and services we needed.

The first custom app we needed built resulted in us getting answers from other Shopify Experts that it was either impossible to do or that it would cost $100k+. Lisa and Dan came in with a proposed solution that would achieve our goals and at a budget that was far more reasonable and that we could actually afford! They were also willing to take a phased approach that allowed us to get the basic functionality built out and to continue to enhance it as we grew and needed more complex features.

Beyond that they are both incredibly responsive and available to chat whether resolving a bug over email or walking through technical details on Skype. At this point we've worked with a number of different freelance developers (both Expert and non) and Lisa and Dan have by far been the best ones to work with!
