Complex integrations

We are yet to meet a business with an e-commerce website that does not require complex integrations.

The reason for this is effective e-commerce websites require complex integrations to build a platform that works well. A bespoke e-commerce website allows for seamless integration of systems such as CRMs, stock control, delivery control, payment gateways and more!

Frequently asked questions

If you have a question or query about ecommerce website development that hasn’t been answered, please get in touch.

Why do I need an e-commerce website?

An e-commerce website allows you to reach a wider audience, sell products 24/7, and provide a convenient shopping experience for your customers. It also helps build brand credibility and can significantly boost sales and growth.

How much does it cost to build an e-commerce website?

The cost varies depending on the complexity, features, and design of the website. Basic e-commerce sites can start at a few thousand pounds, while more advanced sites with custom features can cost significantly more.

How can I improve the user experience on my ecommerce website?

Providing a great experience for your website visitors is crucial.

Here are a few things you can do to improve the experience:

  • Simplify the navigation. Make it easier for your websites to get from A to B. The simpler you make the journey, the better the conversions on your website too!
  • Create filters and a search tool. Again, make it simple for your website visitors to find what they want. Frustrated visitors don’t stick around for long!
  • Use high-quality videos and images. Give your products the best chance to be sold online.
  • Provide detailed descriptions of your products. Avoid being vague; the description matters. If your website visitors don’t find the information they’re looking for, they might find it elsewhere…
  • Simplify the checkout process. We have seen a record 15-step checkout process in the past—it’s too long. Shorten it to save your website visitor time.

There are so many more things you can do. If you hire us to help you with your e-commerce project, we will ensure a positive user experience.

How can I integrate my ecommerce website with my current business systems?

Tell us about the systems you want to integrate with, and we will let you know how we can achieve this together.

Some of the common software integrations we have worked with on e-commerce websites include:

  • DPD
  • Xero
  • Sage Pay
  • Paypal
  • Stripe
  • WorldPay
  • Zoho
  • Hubspot
  • Salesforce
  • Pipedrive
  • Ebay
  • Amazon
  • Wayfair
  • Etsy

And many more!

Integrating with your existing systems helps to automate tedious tasks and creates a seamless experience for your team and clients.

What platform should I use for my e-commerce website?

The choice of platform depends on your specific needs, budget, and technical expertise.

Popular options include Shopify, WooCommerce (for WordPress), Magento2, and BigCommerce.

We have also built fully bespoke e-commerce websites. We can help you choose the best one for your business.

Can I update my website myself?

Yes, we use content management systems (CMS) that allow you to easily update product information, prices, images, and other content without needing technical skills.

We will also provide full training for your team so that you can utilise and manage your website effectively.
