Start selling online with a web shop. Navigating ecommerce can be tricky and expensive. Get it right and the rewards can be enormous. Get it wrong and you can blow a fortune.
For maximum flexibility, we could build a totally custom ecommerce web shop for you. Some of our sister brands run multi-million pound online businesses with sites we’ve built from scratch. However, this is the most expensive route. The alternative – chosen by lots of businesses – is to start from an existing ecommerce platform, customise it and extend it. That’s a proven path and will get your web shop trading online in a fraction of the time, for a fraction of the cost.
Choosing the right platform is critical. To help us find the right one for you, we’ll need to understand what else you’re doing. What accounting package do you use? Does your site need to connect with an in-store EPOS system? Which carrier do you ship products with?
Woocommerce is the leader for e-commerce platforms with almost 20% of the market share, typically because it costs much less than Magento or Prestashop websites, runs quickly and is very adaptable. We are one of only a handful of UK agencies that are Gold Woocommerce Experts, which means we are vetted and verified specialists in building E-Commerce sites and have extensive knowledge of all the Woo Themes and product offerings.
After our planning process, our team of highly skilled and award winning developers and designers work together, using our agile approach. Our Nettl: agile approach aims to get your site live quicker and more cost effectively. We think it’s best to start generating revenue and refine later, so we’ll focus on what’s necessary for launch. Then we’ll agree next steps and deploy in bite-sized updates – the same way we develop our own platforms.
With dozens of online payment processing options to choose from, it can be a complicated decision. Everyone who is new to e-commerce will tell you that the most difficult task isn’t only to decide which platform is the best one, but also the different factors that you need to take into consideration when deciding which gateway is best for your specific needs. With our experience we will help you find the most suitable solution for your needs, wether it be Paypal, or an integrated payment page using Stripe.
Your websites security is paramount especially with e-commerce websites as it will contain a lot of sensitive customer information and with Google now placing web security as a prime ranking factor within SEO. We provide SSL certificates for your e-commerce website to aid this. SSL is used to securely encrypt communication between you and a website, so it keeps your details secure from hackers. It’s highly recommended for all e-commerce websites or sites that use forms to ask for personal details you don’t want getting into the wrong hands.
Efficient stock control is the key to having the right amount of stock in the right place, maximising the opportunity for sales. Most e-commerce platforms have systems in place to help you stay in control of stock levels. But what if you have a physical shop too? How can your till, website, and inventory software keep talking to maintain a healthy stress-free relationship? If you have an epos now or datasym system, we can help connect your website to your epos equipment and automatically synchronise stock levels between your web shop and your retail stock.
