With small business e-commerce website design, there's no easy 'one-size-fits-all' web design process.
We look at your business for what it is; a unique company looking to attract a specific customer base, and then we build a website that suits you and is flexible enough to evolve and grow as your business does.
Different website styles need different approaches – is your web shop an add-on to your main business or is it your main business?
By listening to what your business is about and who your customers are, we work with you to develop a secure, custom-designed e-commerce website which includes all the features needed to promote and sell your products successfully.
For small sites we would likely incorporate Ecwid shopping cart with a Joomla CMS System, for Larger it would be WooCommerce built on WordPress and for the larger, dedicated ecommerce sites it would be built on Magento.
Used by the world’s leading brands, such as Harvey Nichols, Fred Perry and Samsung, there is little doubt that Magento is one of the world's most powerful ecommerce platforms, even It does take longer to setup and keep maintained
There’s never been a better time to start building your business online!
Pop online to do some shopping and there’s a good chance that the store you’re browsing is powered by WooCommerce, as around 30% of online shops run on it.
Woo is hosted on our secure servers along with your own WordPress website, so you always know where your data is held. It is good for clients who want a fully featured online shop but don’t need all the complexities of Magento although it supports an unlimited number of products and categories and can handle product variations such as sizes or colours with ease.
WooCommerce also integrates with dozens of payment processors so there should be one to suit your needs. We always recommend the excellent Stripe as the first choice for all our clients as it is easy and you don’t need a dedicated, expensive, merchant account, and using with PayPal as a fall back.

Magento is an enterprise level ecommerce solution. Owned by Adobe since mid-2018, it is the foundation for many of the best e-commerce websites - as it offers robust, flexible functionality for cataloguing, shopping cart, checkout, payments, shipping, integration with external platforms, multi store and much more. In addition, there are a wide range of plugins available to purchase to solve the most complex requirements.
Magento is also complex: it takes longer to correctly setup, and you need to budget more to maintain it to keep it both reliably and secure - but for large eCommerce solutions it is an ideal open-source solution
We work with all SME's - small & medium sized businesses - and from any country.
