Ecommerce Websites

We design ecommerce websites for businesses across Wakefield and beyond, helping our clients to increase their sales and boost their profits.

Grow your business through online sales with an ecommerce website

An ecommerce website can deliver significant benefits to your company. Having your products available to purchase online can help you reach a wider audience, helping to increase sales and boost your profits. In addition, you will benefit from simple order management, streamlined shipping and a wealth of data which can be used to improve the way you operate.

We provide a choice of ecommerce solutions depending on your needs and budget. We specialise in designing ecommerce websites based on OpenCart – an ecommerce platform that provides a good variety of features. We also offer solutions based on Magento Community Edition for those who require more advanced ecommerce functionality. Should either of these platforms be unsuitable for your needs, we can develop a completely bespoke ecommerce solution that’s tailored to your individual needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

All our ecommerce websites are built to the individual needs of our clients. For this reason, it's difficult to provide accurate costs prior to having a chat about what features you will need. As a guide, our average ecommerce website design cost is around £1200. This cost can be higher or lower depending on your requirements and the number of products you have.
Ecommerce websites are far more complex to create than traditional websites. Product data, shipping methods and payment options all need to be taken into account when determining how long it will take to create your website. To give you an idea, our typical lead time for an ecommerce website is between 6 and 8 weeks.
Our ecommerce websites can be tailored to suit your payment method(s) of choice. Various payment gateways such as PayPal, Sage Pay and WorldPay can be easily integrated into the checkout process. This provides more payment options to your customers which helps to boost sales and increase overall customer satisfaction.
We always recommend that clients take out an annual technical support agreement to cover any faults with their ecommerce website. We also offer maintenance contracts that cover the upgrade of ecommerce software, helping to keep your online store up to date whilst also securing customer data against known vulnerabilities.
