Claymind partners with Shopify to deliver App Development Solutions

how to do social media marketing

how to do web design

how to do internet marketing

Claymind, a software company based in Los Angeles, CA has partnered with Shopify to become a certified App Development partner.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 1, 2020 / — Claymind, a software company based in Los Angeles, CA has partnered with Shopify to become a certified App Development partner. A Certified Shopify App Development Partner is able to extend the functionality of Shopify by creating public, private and custom apps on the Shopify App Store.

Public apps are available to many merchants in the Shopify App Store. These include apps that enhance the user experience on their Shopify websites, admin interface and even connecting their own systems to Shopify.

Custom apps are implemented to add features to your Shopify admin or to extend your eCommerce store to other platforms using custom storefronts. Custom apps are made exclusively for your Shopify store and aren't visible on the Shopify App Store.

Private apps are available only to the merchant’s store and are not listed on the Shopify App Store.

Claymind’s partnership with Shopify means that it will be able to take advantage of the wide technical and product support Shopify offers as well as the full suite of training it provides on the Shopify Partner Academy.

According to Guillermo Misa, CTO of Claymind, “Online stores have been rapidly increasing since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because sales from brick and mortar stores have slowed down significantly and business owners need a way to sell their products. Shopify is the leading platform for online stores which is why we have partnered with them to help small to medium businesses get back on their feet.”

Shopify’s second quarter revenues rose 97%, to $714 million which means that the Canada-based company is swiftly growing and gaining market share in the eCommerce space. Amazon is the leading eCommerce marketplace but does not offer businesses websites and apps using custom domains. Shopify allows businesses to learn how to design a website via Shopify themes to create their own websites with custom domain using the Shopify platform and even having extended functionality through 3rd party apps and themes.

Claymind has been creating and implementing Shopify stores for small to medium businesses since 2012. It specializes in web design, web application development, app development, search engine optimization (SEO), data analytics and online advertising.

Viceco Beauty, an online cosmetics store which was built by Claymind last November 2019 using Shopify, experienced a successful launch during last year’s Thanksgiving season. “We were surprised how smooth and fast it was to launch our online store using Shopify. We have hundreds of SKUs that needed to be put into the system including different variations of images. We had to make sure all shipping and taxes were configured properly as well as our marketing on the internet and customer support mechanism. Claymind helped us throughout the entire process. Within 2 weeks we were up and running just right in time for Thanksgiving!”, Sharmila Benedicto, CEO of Viceco Beauty said.

One of the biggest eCommerce projects Claymind worked on included a Fashion apparel wholesaler that wanted to venture into retail. They were previously only a B2B company which had 13,000 SKUs entered in an old AS/400 system. They worked with Claymind to migrate product and inventory data into the Shopify inventory system. “The biggest challenge was having to create new images for the 13,000 products. The 1990s-era images were so small and pixelated that they didn’t look good on the new website. We had to do new product and model photoshoots and that took time. We got through that eventually and now everything looks awesome!”, Guillermo Misa said.

The Blog wishes Bitcoin a Happy 12th birthday

Happy Birthday Bitcoin

Happy Birthday Bitcoin

After 12 Years, the World's Most Powerful Computer Network Redefines Money

MIAMI, FL, USA, October 31, 2020 / — On October 31, 2008 some fellow (or fellows, we do not know for sure) named Satoshi Nakamoto released a nine-page white paper titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,” bringing Bitcoin to the world.

One of the core elements of Bitcoin was the concept of a distributed, forward-append only, immutable ledger called a blockchain that was maintained by all network participants. The blockchain would detail every single transaction, with all records linked cryptographically, with the database transparent to one and all.

Another fundamental aspect of Bitcoin is that only 21 million bitcoins, the native token of the network, would ever exist. This stood, and stands, in stark contrast to fiat currencies, such as the U.S. dollar, in which the amount of currency regularly increases, debasing value over time.

In the 12 years since its birth, Bitcoin has become the most powerful computer network in history, currently processing some 142 exahashes per second (EH/s). One exahash is one quintillion calculations.

In its short life, the project has already redefined money and stands ready these next decades to change the way people store and exchange value.

Happy Birthday Bitcoin.

CTEK Builder: Wargo's 1967 Nova Build Puts a Crazy Twist on a Classic Car

John Wargo's 1967 Chevy Nova with yellow and gray paint scheme

John Wargo, of The Custom Shop, says he’s known for putting crazy twists on his auto builds. His 1967 Nova is no exception and features a yellow and gray paint scheme designed to wow.

1967 yellow and gray Chevy Nova build outside The Custom Shop in Flanagan, IL.

John Wargo founded The Custom Shop in Flanagan, IL 32 years ago. Since then, the shop has created top-notch builds, including this 1967 Chevy Nova.

Black and white CTEK charger outline for 2020 Builder Challenge powered by CTEK

Six of the nation’s top auto builders are competing in the 2020 Builder Challenge powered by CTEK.

John Wargo is proof that big things can come from small towns. For the past 32 years, his shop has created some of the top auto builds in the nation.

FLANAGAN, ILLINOIS, USA, October 31, 2020 / — John Wargo is proof that big things can come from small towns. John and his wife, Kim, own The Custom Shop, in the small Central Illinois town of Flanagan. For the past 32 years, the shop has created some of the top auto builds in the nation.

“I bought my first car when I was 14, so I’ve been a die-hard car guy my whole life,” said Wargo, who is participating in the virtual 2020 Builder Challenge powered by CTEK.

Wargo’s entry is his 1967 Chevy Nova. “We build a lot of muscle cars at the shop, and I really like the body style of the Nova,” said Wargo.

In his designs, Wargo is known for “putting a wild and crazy twist on things.” The Nova is no exception. His yellow and gray paint scheme has the wow factor.

“There are a lot of hidden graphics within the graphics. There’s a hex mesh pattern faded into the paint and ghosted dollar signs coming off the Nova lettering. The top yellow goes down to a darker fade, and there are five colors in that fade transition. The bottom charcoal fades two colors from top to bottom. There are a lot of drop shadows and 3D highlights almost floating on the paint job. The level of detail in the artwork really makes this car jump.”

Wargo added, “We’ve done a lot of carbon fiber stuff on the build to take it to the next level like a high-end race car.”

Taking things to the next level has been a hallmark of Wargo’s builds since the beginning.

While still a high school student, Wargo purchased a total of 16 vehicles. “Back then you could buy a car for $250, spend a couple hundred working on it and sell it for $1,000. Then flip the profits into the next project. I’m still doing the same thing all these years later … it’s just gotten more expensive,” he said.

Wargo opened The Custom Shop three months after graduating from high school. “In our town of 1,000, there was an old Chrysler dealership that had sat empty for a year-and-a-half. I went to the bank and begged and pleaded with them to give me a loan so I could buy the building. It’s the same building I’m in today,” he said, adding The Custom Shop is a family business with his wife, mom, son, and daughter all working for him. His father also worked at The Custom Shop but has since retired.

“There were people who told us on Day 1 a high-end custom shop in a town of 1,000 would never work,” said Wargo. Through hard work and dedication, Wargo and the staff at The Custom Shop have proved them wrong.

“We’ve had more than 300 magazine features as well as 60 magazine covers. It all goes back to hard work. There are a lot of good shops out there, and good shops stay busy,” he said.

Wargo relies on CTEK battery chargers for his builds. “A lot of these show cars don’t get used on a daily basis, maybe once or twice a month. We were having customers come back because their batteries were dead. Once I switched over to CTEK a number of years ago, I’ve seen a 100% turn around in not having those batteries go bad.”

“It’s made for happier customers because they’re not kicking the tires because their battery is dead, and it saves me having to go pick up the car and replace the battery. In my opinion, a CTEK charger is part of the build, it’s not an add on,” he said. “We’ve been in this business for 32 years, we’ve seen products come and go, and we don’t want to give our customers something we can’t stand by. CTEK is the perfect example of a good product. We use it on all of our projects because it works so well.”

In the virtual Builder Challenge powered by CTEK, Wargo will showcase his 1967 Chevy Nova on social media alongside other CTEK sponsored builds. Fans will have a chance to vote on their favorite build at with the winning builder receiving a CTEK prize package. One lucky voter, drawn at random, will also receive a CTEK prize. Voting will be open Nov. 2-6. For more information, visit or
