Our team of developers have experience in all three platforms and can help you choose the best one for your online store.
How much does an eCommerce website cost?
The cost of an eCommerce website will vary depending on several factors including development time and complexity, but generally we offer a range of eCommerce web design and development starting from £15k (depending on features and functionality required)
Will my eCommerce website be responsive and adapt to all mobile devices?
Yes. Mobile web sales are increasing, therefore it's more essential than ever before to have a mobile-optimised eCommerce site. Every website we develop is responsive and mobile friendly making sure that your web presence is optimised for all users.
Will you provide your own secure hosting for my eCommerce website?
We offer secure hosting services with our preferred partner Fast Hosts.
What are the stages of ECommerce development?
The stages of eCommerce website development can be broadly classified into five stages. The first stage is the pre-development phase where the objectives of the website are set and the requirements are identified. The second stage is the design phase where the look and feel of the website is created. The third stage is the development phase where the actual coding of the website takes place. The fourth stage is the testing phase where the website is checked for errors and glitches. The fifth and final stage is the launch phase where the website goes live and becomes available to the public.
Timings vary across each stage depending on the complexity of the project and the speed at which each stage is signed off.
How will you manage my project?
Our team of account managers and skilled developers will work with you every step of the way ensuring you are always up to date with the development process and provide feedback at every stage.
Is search engine optimisation (SEO) included as part of the eCommerce website development?
Every eCommerce website we create is built to SEO best practices. During development, we do everything possible to help your site rank well in search engine results pages creating a strong SEO foundation. Many of our websites rank well from the start, but to achieve competitive keywords, we recommend an ongoing SEO strategy.
I have an existing online business website. Can you upgrade it?
Yes! We specialise in developing custom eCommerce website design and web development, so we can work with your existing website and upgrade it to match your requirements. For example, Magento 1 was recently retired by Magento, so our team can help migrate your Magento website to the latest Magento 2 platform.

The exciting part is making your new project live but there's always more to be done once a website is launched. We provide a range of eCommerce support and maintenance services to keep your online store up-to-date and running smoothly, including updates to the software and security patches.

What our clients say
Their communication skills and ability to complete the project within budget and timescale were impressive.
After the launch of the website, the client received feedback from customers concerning a better UX, and Chilliapple Ltd. was able to update easier than before. They communicated through Campfire and had weekly updates through Zoom meetings. Overall, the team provided a good value for the budget.Luisa Coates Thermapen
Good Knowledge of Magento: Chilliapple was recommended to us for their Magento knowledge which has proved to be excellent. We worked with Bowo and Vipin to migrate and upgrade our existing Magento shops to a new UK Fast server with additional features and plug ins installed resulting in a faster admin than we previously had. I would recommend Chilliapple for Magento especially multiple shops.Steve Long Merlin Workwear
Having gone through the process of having new Magento sites brought online a couple of times now, I have to say that Dean and the team at Chilliapple have made our latest project as smooth as can be possible.
From my experience, I can’t imagine that any new website is a trouble-free project. However, Chilliapple have worked tirelessly to ensure that obstacles and hurdles have been dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. Would I recommend? I already have… Twice!Richard Smith Niton999
Great work with the team at Chilliapple. They undertook our website maintenance from a previous developer and they have managed to accommodate many of our initial needs, including an upgrade to Magento 2.4.
Since then, we have overcome many more requests to improve website and shopping functionality and while I personally will not be overseeing their work anymore, I trust though that Versapak are in safe hands and that they can meet any new challenge that may arise.Jeremy Graham Versapak
Our Magento multistore was up and running on time and working as expected.
Sandra Simion our contact, gave us excellent customer support throughout the set-up process, she was immensely helpful and understanding. Sandra helped us purchase the correct modules and explained how they worked, Vipin sent us video demonstrations and advice too. [+]Amanda YJ Europe Ltd
I've worked with many web agencies in the past and ChilliApple certainly shine above the rest. Our account manager Bowo has been extremely attentive and pro-active, without whom we would not have been able to deploy our Magento 2 migration by the end of 2020.
We're very pleased at the hard work and patience that Bowo and the development team have put into this project, especially as we were working long hours towards the end. I look forward to continued work with ChilliApple in 2021!Laura Lam Phoenix Medical
Our website is built in Prestashop, and finding credible developers to maintain and progress the site was very difficult once we had made the decision to move on from our current developer.
Chilli Apple initially upgraded and re-themed our site to a very high standard with excellent communication throughout. We went live with the update (which was quite a major undertaking as it had not been done for some time and a lot had changed) right at the beginning of the COVID fiasco. [+]Kieron Miller Skirting4u
We have found the dedicated development service an excellent way to quickly expand our team and give complete flexibility.
Priya has been a great asset to the team and provided valuable knowledge and ability to resolve our development requirements.Garth Hoggins UBT (EU) Ltd
Chilliapple has been the perfect fit for us. We needed a web development firm that we could trust to deliver on time and on cost. Chilliapple has provided that..
We're incredabilty pleased with the quality of work that chilliapple have produced and how receptive they've been to new design iterations. A great company to work alongside with upfront and transparent pricing and delivery. [+]Alex Nowak WorkOutDepot
