If you are looking to get an e-commerce website designed in Oxford, you’ve come to the right place. Our e-commerce websites don’t just look awesome, they are designed around solid marketing principles and user experiences that convert.
Online purchasing has evolved so far that your customers expect the highest levels of excellence in your store, from ease of navigation to intuitive purchasing and checkout. Our e-commerce sites are simple without being basic, elegant without fuss. They are places your customers will want to shop.
Once, just being able to sell online was all you needed to make online sales. Now the marketplace is vastly overpopulated, which means to win, you need to not just show up, you need to stand out. A Stanford study showed that 86% of people discern the credibility of a company based on the design of their website. The more credible your e-commerce website, the more you will sell.
All of our e-commerce websites are designed & developed from scratch from our central Oxford offices. We don’t use pre-existing templates and simply shoehorn your brand and content into them. Our sites are all bespoke, designed and built to the highest specification, with your brand personality in mind, so that your business stands out from your competition.
We develop e-commerce sites that are easy to take care of. Once you are up and running, adding and changing products is something you’ll be able to do yourself with a minimum of fuss.
We believe your e-commerce store should be something that just works rather than being a whole other job for you. Your online business may be your baby, but you shouldn’t be having to babysit it all the time.
Taking payment is fundamental to online business. There are more than a few choices when it comes to how you implement that in your store. Fortunately, we have experience working with all the major payment gateways on the web.
From WorldPay to PayPal, Stripe to Klarna, we are able to implement whatever your preference, or advise you on which will work best for your business if you find it all a bit of a minefield.
It’s all very well being able to sell your products online, but unless you’re going to be running a collect-only service, you need to ship your products out to your customers. All our eCommerce sites have shipping and handling built-in.
We can use your preferred shipping partner or advise if you don’t have a preference. All of the mechanisms for calculating costs and arranging shipping are applied at the point of purchase, meaning one less job for you to deal with. And if you like, we can include collection from store too.
The UK has the third leading e-commerce market in the world, just behind China and the US. UK online purchases total more than Germany and France combined.
All our sites come with on-page SEO configured
Of course, having the best looking, easiest to use site isn’t much use unless you’re going to have traffic to it (unless you’re a book store run by Dylan Moran). That’s why all our e-commerce sites only go live with proper SEO in place so that your customers can find you through web searches based on what you sell.
We’ll also show you how to make sure you tick the right SEO boxes whenever you add new products to your store yourself.
WooCommerce is perfect for existing WordPress sites that want to add e-commerce or e-commerce sites that want more than basic shop functionality. Being an extension of WordPress, it is possibly the most flexible platform for online shopping sites.
Our WooCommerce sites look beautiful, are easy to administer, and work for you rather than being work for you.
An E-Commerce (electronic commerce) website allows you to sell physical goods, services, and invoice all direct from your website. But it doesn’t stop there, it can be a powerful part of your supply chain and manage your orders, shipping and process payments through various methods such as PayPal, Stripe and other payment solutions.
In a nutshell, the payment gateway is what enables you to take online payments. Think of the card machine at the checkout whenever you buy anything at a shop (and don’t use cash). A payment gateway is essentially your site’s card machine. It is a tool that enables you to securely take and validate your customers’ card details, making sure that the funds will be available for you to take payment for what you are providing.
