To generate maximum sales through your website, our team of UI and UX designers ensure your website is best suited for your products and services. This means we build a wireframe for each client, enabling greater functionality.

When we review your requirements and how you aim to sell online, we can then integrate seamlessly as we have a plan in place for what is required. From common platforms like Xero to custom CRM systems, our web designers and developers can build a solution to suit your business.

E-commerce website design

The first step is getting an understanding of how businesses operate, enabling a new e-commerce website to streamline processes and drive online sales. We will work with businesses to build a strategy to integrate their current systems so that inventory is managed easily.

We will then review how you sell products both online and offline to better understand what your website will be used for. This means we can have your website optimised for each channel you generate website sales.

Our experienced Squid designers will base designs according to necessary UX/UI to ensure your e-commerce website is designed to achieve business goals. This step involves wire frames, imagery and content being created that will bring your business's story to life in the digital world.

Once the website has been designed, we then build this on the CMS system which is best suited for the business.

For e-commerce websites we use SilverStripe, however depending on requirements we also use Shopify or Magento.

Once we have finished building your website and have integrated it with the required platforms, we will then set your website live using Squid web hosting. This is a easy to manage system where you can host your website and domain from one single dashboard.

Frequently asked e-commerce website questions

  • What is the best ecommerce platform to use for a website?

    There are a range of platforms which can be used including Shopify, BigCommerce and SilverStripe. We are platform agnostic, however for larger projects we like to use open source systems like SilverStripe as the potential is endless.

    We personally avoid WooCommerce websites as find they can lead to challenges as businesses grow with plugin updates, meaning other systems can save you thousands in the future.

  • What is the difference between a website & an ecommerce website?

    Websites built to only share information over internet is called a "normal website", whereas , a website that enables payments over the internet for products and/or services along with a strong encrypted technology is called ecommerce website.

  • What is relationship between e-commerce and website?

    To put it simply, e-commerce refers to buying and selling online, while e-business encompasses all business conducted online. E-commerce can be viewed as a part of an e-business.

  • How are payments made online with an ecommerce business?

    When building an ecommerce business, you have a range of payment gateways to choose from. Systems like Shopify or BigCommerce will have a mandatory credit card gateway, where you can also add other systems like afterpay, LayBuy or Humm.

    When building an ecommerce website on an open source platform like SilverStripe, you have much more control of payments where you can control money flows as needed. This provide opportunities to manage cashflow and how your ecommerce website will generate sales and revenue streams.

    In this case you can use Stripe, Windcave or whatever other system which is most suitable to your business needs.

    Email marketing is a key component to an e-commerce website. It helps with website conversions and builds trust with potential and previous website purchasers.
