Sell your products and services online
If you're looking at selling online you'll need an ecommerce website so that you can add all your products, set shipping and tax rates and take payments. We specialise in ecommerce web design for businesses who are looking at either starting out selling online or want to upgrade their current ecommerce website.
There are a number of options for selling online, from using a simple shopping cart solution connected up to payment services such as PayPal or Google checkout to sophisticated ecommerce solutions that connect to payment gateways such as WorldPay and Cardsave. We can help you find the right solution for your business.
Selling online can be quite an overwhelming experience as there is a lot that needs to be taken into consideration. We've worked with a range of different industries to develop easy to use - and most importantly profitable - ecommerce websites so can offer our experience to help find the perfect solution for you.
Examples of ecommerce websites we've built
Take a look at some of our latest ecommerce website:
Simple ecommerce for lower value products and starting out
We offer a really easy and simple solution for those looking at selling low value products or services that uses a simple shopping cart connected to PayPal or Google Checkout. This solution doesn't offer a huge amount of flexibility but is extremely cost effective to set up, easy to manage and doesn't involve a monthly charge from the payment providers.
Using this option you can be up and selling online quickly and easily. This solution requires a content management system - we can plug this into Joomla or Wordpress.
Sophisticated ecommerce for online retailers
This solution suits those who are expecting to build an online retail business. We use a module called Virtuemart that plugs into the Joomla CMS to provide the shopping cart functionality needed to sell online. Virtuemart provides the product catalogue, shipping and tax rules, stock control and connects directly to various types of payment systems. It's used by thousands of ecommerce websites so is extremely robust and very flexible.
Using Virtuemart you are in complete control of your online store and we can customise the solution to meet your requirements. Natural Oak Floors is an example of a live website using Joomla and Virtuemart.
To sell online you'll need to be able take payments. There are a number of different ways to do this - from using a simple service such as PayPal or Google checkout to using a payment service provider like WorldPay, Cardsave or SagePay.
Generally if you expect to turnover a significant sum of money we would suggest using a professional payment gateway as whilst there will be a monthly fee the commissions you'll pay will be less, whilst if you only expect infrequent purchases it may be better to go for higher commissions and no upfront or monthly payments.
