eCommerce, or electronic commerce, is the process of buying and selling goods online and is a demand we’ve definitely seen grow over the past few years. If you’ve ever made a transaction over the internet, you’ll know all about eCommerce.
For our clients, online trading and eCommerce comes in all shapes and sizes, so when we build eCommerce stores, we build with your business goals in mind. This means there are a few different approaches and solutions we can look to implement.
Simple out-the-box solutions
If you’re looking to set up an online store fast and simply need to display products and accept online payments then an out-the-box solution is the way to go. We can set up basic functionality like inventory management, promotion management and online payments through a Shopify, WooCommerce (WordPress) or even a Ucommerce (Umbraco) site. These sites tend to be budget-friendly and allow you to hit the market fast whilst giving you the freedom to easily scale in the future.
Hybrid and custom solutions
We have a vast experience in building custom eCommerce stores that allow for in-depth functions like syncing with warehouse management systems, personalised shopping experiences or even more complex booking or purchasing processes. With a hybrid or custom solution, we build from scratch and so can tailor your website to suit your business needs, allowing for a more streamlined user experience and ultimately a better return for your business.
Not sure if an eCommerce site is right for you?
We've identified some key indicators to help identify if an eCommerce solution is the best decision for you right now.
- If your direct competitors are offering direct purchase options from their website, you may want to get an eCommerce website kicked into gear. If you want to win over customers from your competitors, making sure you can deliver the same, if not a better user experience, eCommerce is hugely important in having a competitive advantage.
- If your customers have identified a need to access your product online, listen to them! Not only will eCommerce allow you to sell to your existing customer base but it will also open up possibilities of expansion and growth.
We’ve produced eCommerce sites for clients in fashion, kitchen design and even travel and tourism. Take a look at some of our most recent eCommerce website designs.
