introduction to ecommerce

Reach a bigger audience by selling your goods and services online

eCommerce website design is an important part of creating your online presence, a good design can help your customers journey from finding the products through to making the purchase.  Good eCommerce websites will have a mix of a great design alongside features and functions to help with those purchases. 

The functionality of an eCommerce website is very different from that of an information / brochure style website, customers may need to have an account, there needs to be a method of payment such as Stripe, or PayPal, delivery options, returns procedures, basket upsells, wish lists, abandoned cart facilities, give vouchers discounts codes, product options, product guides and more. 
Sometimes integrations with external systems such as stock control (EPOS), accounting systems and external marketing solutions are required.
