As a WordPress eCommerce website design agency based in Hertfordshire, we provide clients from the UK and overseas the design and technical development to bring their eCommerce WordPress website design to life or to bring it to the next level.
We have a detailed process for building WordPress eCommerce sites which involves SEO, UI best practice and responsive first design. Our knowledge of WordPress and the most widely used eCommerce plugin WooCommerce enables us to customise bespoke WordPress eCommmerce to the highest level.
WordPress eCommerce Website Design
If your business needs an online shop to list a small range of products or your inventory has thousands of complex categories and extensive product information, we have you covered. Our team’s work on large complex product data sets enables us to build bespoke import/export tools to integrate your website, stock, orders and customer data with almost all other CRM systems.
When it comes to payment processing, no problem! We have experience working with all major payment gateways like Paypal, Stripe, Sage or GoCardless, along with many other API-based integrations.
WordPress eCommerce Booking systems
If your business takes bookings, WordPress can be an ideal starting point to take online bookings and payments. Our experience working with venues, sports facilities and service-based businesses has meant we’ve had the chance to build WordPress eCommerce booking sites for a number of purposes. Some have simple requirements to be booked, like a set number of engineers’ timings and opening hours – others have a more complex matrix of services, resources and add-on products which can all feed into a complete booking.
Oh, we often link all bookings to company and staff CRM systems, iCal, Outlook and Google Calendar to make managing bookings easy and most importantly live and up to date.
WordPress Configurators and Quoting Systems
If your business won’t be selling things online but you need to provide your customers with an easy-to-use view of your stock, product information or product options, WordPress eCommerce can still provide a good platform to start. We remove the basket functionality and replace it with a simple data capture and convert new orders into email and PDF quotes for a customer to refer back to or a sales team to act on.
It’s not just simple product and category-based quoting systems which are possible to build with WordPress eCommerce, we also design and build complex configurators in WordPress which are easy to maintain and update as your lead generation grows. It’s often a great way to build a beautiful frontend without the overhead of complex backend infrastructure and integration which more complex applications entail.
How do we approach each WordPress eCommerce project?
We interpret your understanding of the WordPress eCommerce website you want to create, we also ask questions about your business and key indicators which will help us create and measure success.
We research the required technical specification for the eCommerce website and put together a detailed plan for your build. Whether there are any specific or unique requirements at this stage will be outlined here, we’ll detail all the costs involved, the technology stack you’ll end with at the end, the timeline for the project and the resources required to complete it.
We complete what we refer to as the design phase in two parts, it entails a frontend design for you to review how your website will look, but it also often analyses on a deeper level the necesary website structure from SEO research and starts to build a picture of how your content looks and how your visitors will interact with the website. We review all work together before moving on to the next stage, getting it right here is crucial.
Here is where our technical expertise shine, we complete the frontend and backend technical development ready to host your website online. We review any requirements with our clients throughout this stage to deliver the best results in testing and through launch.
The testing and launch stage is often the most rewarding but also the most challenging for us and our clients, hard work and detail in the previous stages however, always helps us along the way. Here you review the work completed on the website and we prepare our own user testing, analytics, site maps, search console, server requirements, and DNS propagation among a whole host of other components to ensure the launch of your new website is as smooth as possible. It’s not as daunting as it sounds, it’s usually incredibly exciting.
