Online shopping has changed the way retail businesses operate. The value of having an e-commerce presence has being obvious during the pandemic. We've been involved in supporting small businesses with e-commerce for the past decade and can offer advice and help right from the start. We can talk you through your options, take time to understand what your needs are and suggest the best solution for your business.
We're based in Herefordshire and enjoy working with local businesses, of course if you're not local we'll still be pleased to hear from you!
Magento is a free and open source (you can make changes to the code) e-commerce platform used by thousands of businesses. It has the advantage of being fully customisable with many free and paid extensions to provide almost any function you like for your online store. It needs hosting on your own server, which will have a monthly cost, and can have more expensive set up costs than other platforms.
We've used to developing and managing with Magento so can make changes to your existing store, or discuss what your business needs and if Magento is your best option for your new e-commerce website.
Shopify is a popular e-commerce solution for smaller businesses. It charges a monthly fee for hosting your store on the Shopify servers and is relatively quick and simple to set up, with a wide range of paid-for apps to add features to your store. It has a user friendly admin interface allowing you to easily keep track of sales.
We've got the experience to talk through if Shopify is the best platform for your store, or to help add and set up more apps on your existing website.
