E-Commerce Websites

If you want to sell products or services using your website then you will need an e-Commerce system. Shopping cart systems don't necessarily cost as much as you might expect.

Our online shopping package includes:

Website Hosting and Email

Like with our 'Small Business Website' package, we include a year's free advanced website-hosting and standard email accounts. This web hosting also includes a 250MB MySQL database. 

This hosting would usually cost £92 a year and is provided by Fasthosts, one of the UK's leading website hosting providers.

What is website hosting and do I need it?

Graphic Design

Your website will be custom made to meet both your organisation's and your customers' needs. We will work together with you to design a site using any logos, promotional materials, sketches or existing websites as a reference. The design process can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months to get right.

Site Construction

Construction of the website itself starts when the design of the main pages has been agreed and finalised. All of our websites are made to comply with the current web design trends, to work in all the most common browsers, on all the major operating systems (including most mobile platforms), accessability guidelines and website standards. We are also developing our search engine optimisation (SEO) to give your e-commerce website a better ranking in Google and other search engines.

Content Management System

Your new website will have a bespoke content management system, unless you would prefer to use an off-the-shelf package like Wordpress or Joomla we can use these instead.

The Content Management System (CMS) allow you to log into the site to add, edit or remove pages/articles on the site. You will also be able to add or remove users.

Our CMS often also includes a rich text editor which allows you to upload images and documents (Word and/or PDF) to your website.

Product Catalogue and Shopping Cart

Our e-Commerce package includes a product catalogue which allows your customers to browse and search your website for the products on sale.

These products can be added/edited and removed using your admin system quickly and easily. So whether you're selling soaps, houses or sweets you can do so efficiently.

Our shopping cart (and booking system) can be connected to PayPal, WorldPay or SagePay.

Mobile and Tablet Versions

The world has gone mobile, so any online shop now needs to be compatible with an array of mobile phones, tablets and phablets - as well as the usual PC browsers. This is now offered as standard on all new website builds.

Optional Extras

Your site can be as simple or as complicated as you need it to be. Optional extras include:

  • booking systems,
  • photo galleries,
  • podcasts,
  • news,
  • events,
  • polls and much more...

Each of these are extras which would not be included in the eCommerce package and typically cost an additional £200 per item.

The standard cost of setting up a new ecommerce site starts from around £1,950. However, if you already have a website set up, we can add the shopping cart and checkout systems from as little as £500.
