Design, build and consultancy for bespoke, Woocomerce & Shopify websites.
New data shows that whilst business websites are losing traffic to social channels, E-commerce store traffic is on the up. The tricky part is using the perfect e-comm platform for your business. We can help quantify your current e-commerce or measure up your new store’s needs to suggest the simplest and most cost-effective way for you to get to market.
Our years of experience can help guide you to the best platform for your store. The following are some good questions to ask yourself whilst looking around:
Digital or Physical Products
What do you wish to sell through your e-commerce store? Digital or physical goods? It makes all the difference when thinking about shipping costs, etc. Look for platforms that suit your product characteristics.
Self-Hosted or Hosted E-commerce
If you wish to apply a killer design to your store, look for platforms that will enable you to self-host. Most e-commerce platforms provide the ability to modify your store within a live environment, but some are restrictive. Self-hosting also allows you to modify the platform to fit your business processes. Shopify, for example, works perfectly if you wish to sell in the way they allow, but if you want to take a break from selling or wish to implement a new sales process, then it might not be the platform for you.
API Connectivity to your Systems
APIs are used to connect your site to other web or office systems which you currently use or may wish to in the future. We have connected our sites with various platforms including Brightpearl, TradeGecko, Salesforce, Insphire and Barcoder.
