About Merlinus Software Solutions

Founded in 1998 in Campbell River, Merlinus Software Solutions serves a diverse range of businesses across Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, and Europe. Our mission is to help small to medium-sized businesses succeed with Shopify-driven websites, whether you're already using Shopify, want to add an online sales channel to your physical storefront, or are an aspiring entrepreneur with a great product idea.

Merlinus is a small but effective enterprise, driven by owner-programmer Renee Kraft of Campbell River. Renee is a Microsoft and Shopify certified professional and has more than 30 years of programming experience. With this expertise, she's able to offer an incredibly wide range of services.

Although generally self-contained, Merlinus is happy to team up with other specialists to ensure that your website has everything it needs to thrive. We consider our clients to be our project partners, and we take your unique wants and needs seriously. Our custom solutions and websites are intuitive, lead to long term success, and adapt with your business as it grows.

We want you to feel informed and confident in every decision you make. That's why we maintain a healthy amount of communication through every step of the process.
