E-commerce

We help businesses get e-commerce up and running quickly so they can start making sales online.

3 E-commerce Solutions

E-commerce integration

We use a platform such as Ecwid and integrate e-commerce into any website. Similarly we use WooCommerce to integrate e-commerce into your WordPress blog/site.
Customisation is possible but is rather limited to basic style sheet changes.
This tends to be the cheapest and quickest solution to implement, suited for businesses where selling products online is not the leading source of revenue e.g. bands selling merchandise via their website, service providers selling packages, etc.

Pound Note

E-commerce platform

We use a software-as-a-service e-commerce platform such as Shopify, Magento, Volusion, etc and build your business and website around it.
Customisation is possible but it can be expensive as you tend to need specialist developers experienced in coding for those platforms.
This is the best solution for small-to-medium e-commerce businesses who primarily sell a lot of products online.

Custom e-commerce solution

We build your own e-commerce system and website entirely from the ground up, excluding payment processors which are integrated as usual.
This method allows the highest level of customisation.
This is a pricier solution aimed at larger businesses with a high turnover who desire a solution fully tailored to their brand.

Case Study

For this client we moved their business online over a weekend so they could launch their drop-off catering service on the Monday.

    March 2020

    With the vast majority of their business being conducted offline, our client wanted to improve the efficiency of the drop-off catering side of their business which was very time consuming. Instead of manually taking orders, Country City Catering can now direct customers to place their orders on the website thus removing a lot of administrative work.

A long history in e-commerce

Our founder, Paul, has a long history in e-commerce. He studied e-commerce as a subject during his bachelor degree way back in the late 90s when online shopping was just taking off. He even wrote a research paper on the impact e-commerce was going to have on the travel industry and the outcome has been similar to what he predicted.
From having run Magento, Volusion, Shopify and WooCommerce stores, to selling eBay, to developing a custom auto parts e-commerce solution across web and mobile, to having even manufactured a product in China to sell on Amazon, Paul has the experience to help you build an e-commerce solution that meets the needs of your business.
