Something For Everyone
We work with leading platforms such as WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Shopify, Magento, Open-cart, and Prestashop, to help you build a market-leading e-commerce website. If you are not sure which is the best platform for you, we can advise on the vendor that suits your e-commerce requirements. Every e-commerce website is made with the safety and security of clients and customers in mind while ensuring a modern look and feel. As with our website design package, we ensure everything fits your brand vision and gives you an identity.
What is an e-commerce website?
An e-commerce website is one that facilitates transactions of goods online. Typically, a business will list products or services, making them available for customers to buy online, using integrated payment services and shopping carts. An e-commerce website can replicate all the features of a physical storefront, without needing a human to intervene.
The platforms we talk about above (WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Shopify, Magento, Open-cart, Prestashop) have built-in options for payments, including debit and credit cards, PayPal, or even modern methods such as Apple Pay.
Why do you need your own e-commerce website?
Marketplaces like eBay, Etsy, Facebook, and Amazon are great for picking up product sales. However, they generically present your products and don’t allow you to show your uniqueness as a brand. Your products and services become synonymous with the platform they are sold with, not your brand.
An e-commerce site helps consumers to associate products with your brand. You have full control and don’t need to abide by the rules of a marketplace. The possibilities are infinite, in the long-term, having your own site is much more fruitful and profitable.
With your own e-commerce site, you can also learn more about your customers. Free tools such as Google Analytics, can analyse the pages people visit, products they look at, how they navigate, why they leave the website, and much more. Such information is valuable for growing your business and optimising your website design.
Some of the things we can help you with are:
- Where to add photos and videos to improve engagement with your products
- Optimising the layout and navigation
- Colour and website themes that match your other materials such as logos and stationery
- Adding text content that tells a story
- Designing a blog
- Testimonials, reviews, and portfolios
- Privacy policies like GDPR or CCPA (depending on where you are based)
