Leading Ecommerce Solutions
There are a wide range of ecommerce platforms to choose from, from hosted solutions such as Shopify to self-hosted software like WooCommerce. We have experience of a range of solutions and can talk you through the benefits of each.
Shopify: Hosted Ecommerce
Shopify is a hosted ecommerce solution, giving you control of a series of templates to customise the look and feel of your store. Off-the-shelf apps from Shopify developers extend the core functionality and allow you to add new features.
The Shopify API allows more bespoke development, including integrating Shopify with a website built on a different platform. Checkout still takes place via the secure Shopify pages, ensuring customers have a streamlined and optimised experience.
WooCommerce: Self-Hosted Ecommerce
WooCommerce is the official ecommerce extension of WordPress and is used as a self-hosted solution, giving full control of the underlying code. WooCommerce works with custom WordPress themes, allowing a fully bespoke website design and build.
Further functionality can also be added via plugins, whether off-the-shelf or developed specifically for the store. Since a WooCommerce site is built on WordPress, it provides intuitive content management of body products and website content in one place.
We combine technical excellence with a unique empathy to deliver meaningful solutions that last.
