Ready to set up shop on the virtual high street?
Unlike brick-and-mortar retail, online commerce is seeing continued year-on-year growth. Everyday, more people are choosing to buy more products over the Internet. While the cost of entry is low, the competition is fierce. To gain advantage over the plethora of other retailers you’ll need a site with a bold attractive design; a user-friendly shopping experience with an easy checkout process, and one that’s optimised for search engines and fully integrated with your social media to ensure that you get the traffic rather than your competition.
Our Preferred Ecommerce Platforms
We are big fans of Shopify and WooCommerce, two of the most popular shopping cart providers on the web. Both deal with stock management, calculate tax and delivery costs and handle the processing of all major payment methods. They also allow you to provide such things as gift certificates and discount coupons. However, as they both have pros and cons, we’ll assess your particular requirements so we can decide which platform is the best fit for you.
