Do I need a developer to initially setup up my Nacelle storefront?
Yes, a developer will have to do the initial build of your progressive web app front end which replaces your Shopify theme.
Can I edit my storefront without a developer?
Yes. Once you launch with Nacelle, you can manage and edit your products and collections in Shopify the way you normally do. With Nacelle's content solutions you can alter text and images, drag and drop to rearrange your store, and even build landing pages on the fly, all without a developer.
Do I need to host Nacelle?
Nacelle offers a fully hosted version of our service so you don't have to worry about it. If you'd like to own your own hosting, we recommend Netlify or Versel. The backend Nacelle service is fully hosted and maintained by Nacelle.
