E-commerce & online shop design and development

Fast and secure online shops that increase your sales.

Ecommerce Websites

As an owner and manager of an online shop myself, I fully understand what is important when creating an ecommerce website.

I can share my knowledge with you and make sure you get everything right from the outset. You can read more about specific features you might consider below.

Fast to Use

I optimise my websites for speed, so your online shop will be fast to load and use so customers don't get frustrated and leave before checking out.

Built for Search Engines

Your site will be built and structured so that search engines will rank it high in search results without the need for expensive advertising or SEO contracts.

Secure

By getting me to professionally design and develop your website, will help customers trust you. Customers need to feel like the site is legitimate and trustworthy before they will make a purchase.

Advanced Product Search

Your customers will be able to quickly find the product they are looking for by using advanced search technologies and checkbox filters.

Custom Solutions

In my experience, no two ecommerce site's are the same. I will tailor a solution that is best for your circumstances.

I have experience with a Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce and will be able to recommend a solution for you.

PayPal & Stripe Integration

Paypal is the leading online payment gateway and is included as standard with online shops that I develop.

You may also want to consider using Stripe, because it allows you to keep users on your site to make payment.

Search & Filter

You have to make it easy for users to find the item they want. One way is to create clear and descriptive categories and menus.

For more accurate product filtering I can create a search function and checkbox filters to show the products your customers want.

Secure Code

Your site will be built on top of one of the most secure web application frameworks Laravel. As a result you can be sure your shop and customers details are secure.

Product Imports from Spreadsheet

If you currently have your product inventory in a spreadsheet, I can use that file to quickly import your products into your new online shop. This saves time and minimises the chance of error.

Free Delivery

Offering free delivery can convince customers to stay and make a purchase. You can offer free delivery for every order or have a minimum qualifying order value.

Stock Management

Keeping track of your stock levels via your website can make sure you don’t ever go out of stock. Your online shop will notify you via email when the stock of a product is running low.

Delivery Calculations

Basing your delivery price on the properties of the order is known as “table rate shipping”. Commonly the price will be calculated by the weight, volume or quantity of products in the basket.

2. Advanced Ecommerce Features

User Accounts

Allowing users to create their own account makes it easier for repeat orders for regular customers.

You can store their addresses on your site to save them having to fill in forms.

When you are storing people’s data you need to comply with GDPR. Your site will enable you to erase or export user data upon request for compliance with the law.

Personalised Products

Certain types of products will have optional personalization – such as t-shirts or promotional merchandise.

You can enable customers to upload artwork or a photo, or specify an engraving or inscription for the product and add the associated costs to the total.

Store Locators

If you have a number of locations where you have physical shops / stores, I can allow your users to find their closest shop using a postcode or town search and show the nearest locations on a Google Map.

Custom Delivery Methods

In certain circumstances working out delivery costs can be a more complicated than flat or table rate. In these cases I can write a custom delivery script to calculate the price taking all the factors into consideration.

EPOS Integrations

If you have a physical store where products are being sold, it is important that the stock levels are being synced to the website to provide accurate availability.

Depending on your point of sale provider it is usually possible to sync the website with a datafeed from your in-store stock management system.

Dropship Integration

Do you run or want to run your online shop using suppliers that deliver your products on your behalf? I can develop your website to automatically send your paid orders to the supplier for dispatch.

Discounts

If you want to create a promotion on a certain brand, category or a custom selection of products – it can all be done from the admin panel of your site. You can even set a date range so it automatically starts and ends.

Subscriptions

Offering a subscription service will allow your customers’ orders to reoccur at a certain time interval. Subscriptions can also be used as a for paid member sites.

Or fill in the form...

What do you need? Why do you need it? What's your current web address (if applicable)? Etc.

I am always available on the phone and I prefer to have an informal chat about the project before we dive in.
