eCommerce Websites

We have years of experience developing eCommerce shops that deliver a fantastic online shopping experience to your customers.

What does eCommerce mean?

eCommerce is the term commonly used when referring to a website that sells goods or services, in most instances, through an online shop.

How many products can I have?

There is no limit to the number of products that can be added to your shop! We have developed many online shops for clients with thousands of products and a continually growing inventory.

Can I use my eCommerce site to sell events?

Yes! As well as allowing you to sell your products easily and efficiently online, our shop system has an optional events plugin that means you can also use the same easy to use system to advertise and sell space on events and activities!

How would I organise my products?

One of the big steps with any eCommerce site is coming up with a system to categorise your products.

Our shop system allows you to have multiple categories and subcategories for your products meaning you can organise your goods in a logical fashion to give your customers the best online shopping experience.

Products can also be set to have different variants to allow for all sorts of product options such as size, style, colour, we can even create categories that allow your customers to customise their items too!

What about delivery charges of my products?

When making the decision to sell your products online one of the concerns that is often raised is how to manage delivery charges of products, particularly in shops that sell a wide variety of items!

There are lots of clever ways our eCommerce system can help you manage this including calculating delivery charges based on:

  • Item Weight – It is not always practical to have one set delivery charge for products which is why we use a system that allows you to set the postage rates dependant on the weight of your product.
  • Location – Often delivery charges to remote areas of the UK such as the Highlands and Islands demand a premium on delivery costs.
  • International Shipping Rates– Our system allows for international delivery charges set by specific countries with the flexibility to pick and choose the countries you would like to ship to.

Can my eCommerce site have stock control or integrate into specialist stock management systems?

You may already have a stock management system in place to help manage your inventory, we regularly integrate with existing systems.

Our shop system also includes a comprehensive inbuilt stock management system that means you can quickly and easily track your stock levels.

What payment gateways can I use?

Our preferred shop system integrates with a variety of the most well used and trusted payment gateways including:

  • PayPal
  • WorldPay
  • Stripe
  • Merchant Accounts

What security does my eCommerce site provide my customers with?

When it comes to online transactions it is important that customers feel they can trust your site to maintain the security of their banking details.

Trust and security of a site, particularly eCommerce, are also very important to Google and will influence how your site performs in the Google search engine. For this reason we recommend our clients apply an SSL certificate to their website.
