What is an E-Commerce Platform?

An e-commerce platform is a software framework designed to allow products to be sold entirely online without the need for a physical shop. It is the software that allows your customers to view products, add them to a shopping basket (or “cart”), collect the customer’s details at checkout, take payment, notify you of the sale and manage stock levels.

What is WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is a free Open Source e-commerce platform that is constructed as an add-on to WordPress. It transforms any WordPress website into a full-fledged e-commerce solution. WooCommerce is extremely configurable and extensible, with much of its power coming from the addition of plugins that extend its core functions.

What is a Content Management System?

Content management systems allow you to edit the information on your website yourself, without the need for a web designer. Imagine, for example, being able to update the wording on your home page whenever you want. Or adding a new page when you have a new product or service available. Remove old offers and promotions, or update regional landing pages.

The beauty of a CMS is that you don’t need to return to your web designer for every little change. You can even easily learn how to do some of the bigger jobs.

Your new bespoke website will be built to be easily managed so you can quickly make changes, add new content and write blogs.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a free and open source content management system. It was first released in 2003 as a blogging platform and very quickly grew to become the de facto blogging platform of choice. Not long after it began growing out from just plain blogging into the territory of full content management.

 

Nowadays it is a sophisticated and very powerful content management system (CMS), yet it retains the usability it has always boasted. This makes it a pleasure for both web developers and their customers! It’s so easy to use that if you can write an email then you can use WordPress’s basic features.

The E-Commerce Website Design Process

Once you have purchased the e-commerce website design option a representative will be in touch with you to get an idea of what your company does, what your products are, who your customers are, and why they would choose to buy from you. We will look at any existing branding you have and try to build a complete picture of your company.

We’ll also take the opportunity to offer you free consultancy on how you could best make use of your e-commerce website to find new customers, make more money and grow your business’s reputation in the marketplace. Through talks with you about your business your business requirements will be gathered, and we will discuss your preferences with regard to how the site should work and how payments should be taken etc.

2. Design

This snapshot of your company and the gathered specification for your new website is provided to our graphic designer, who will then turn it into a site design concept. Creating a masterful design is a deceptively complicated process – graphic designers need years of experience to be able to do this well, and also have to understand the limitations of the medium in which they’re working. This becomes even more tricky when designing for an e-commerce solution, the designer must have a full understanding of what you are trying to achieve with your site.

You will be offered the chance to view the design concepts early on and provide us with feedback, which in turn will be used to further tailor the design to your liking.

3. Bespoke Theme Development

Once all of the design work is complete and you are happy with the direction in which your site is heading the design work will be passed to our web developer. The design will be painstakingly converted from just a design concept on a piece of paper into an actual WooCommerce website. This is a very involved process that takes years of training and experience, as the site needs to work across a multitude of web browsers and devices from desktop to mobile phone. Your website is crafted with love to get it just right.

4. Bespoke Web Design

Depending on your specification the web developer may be further involved in adding custom development to your website, such as specialised data gathering or integration with third party software.

5. Payment Integration
