What is the best platform and content management system for eCommerce?

Magento and WooCommerce are both open-source platforms that allow for greater flexibility and customisation, while PrestaShop is a more user-friendly platform that is perfect for smaller businesses. 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.

And rest assured that our team of account managers and specialist developers are on hand to assist you with making the most of your online presence. Our comprehensive support and maintenance services mean you can focus on growing your business while we take care of the technical details.
