Lets start by making e-commerce simple, if you are selling 1-500 products (+variations) online then the world is your oyster, you'll need a lean e-commerce system that is simple to manage and quick to load. You may need to feed in and out of various market places, such as eBay or sage. But ultimately you'll not be wanting to employ a full-time developer to keep your website running.
If however if you're looking to sell 20,000 products in several countries, feed into every marketplace there is and you want the website to run itself then your options narrow drastically.
Whether you are starting from scratch or adding e-commerce to an already flourishing business, decisions you make will stay with you for many years.
There are many online shop systems out there such as Magento, PrestaShop, Opencart osCommerce, Actinic to name just a few that we support, but with so many, finding the right e-commerce platform for your business is crucial! We can create an online store with most systems and specialise in just a few - and at the core of every one we make sure that the final result suits your needs, fits your budget and is well written for the search engines.
All online shop designs include store layout design, online store content management and search engine optimisation.
If you are looking to rank well in the search engines then making sure that the site is fast, clean, well written user focused and is accessible is paramount.
If however your main need is an online shop that is very simple to manage and will be promoting to a specific audience through other channels, or your website already ranks well and can take the addition of an online store with ease. In most cases all three e-commerce solutions will happily cater for small to medium sized online stores with a fair amount of visitors.
Talk to us today and we'll guide you through the advantages and disadvantages of each system based on your primary needs.
And in all cases our designers and developers can put together any design you'd like.
