e-Commerce solutions to suit your needs

When it comes to selling online, one size does not fit all. If you are looking for an e-Commerce solution, we will assess your needs and propose a solution that best fits with your requirements. Some customers want just an online shop, whilst for others, the shop is only a small part of a more broadly based website.

The solutions we offer have powerful features, and you can sell from just a few to thousands of products. If you’re starting from scratch, you should allow time to load your product details and photos. We can help with data migration if you are moving from another platform.

PayPal
nopCommerce

Apart from the website, you will need a merchant account and the services of a payment gateway provider such as PayPal or SagePay. We do all the necessary integration work.

If you only sell a few products, and that doesn’t change very often, you can go the route of signing up for a free PayPal account, and generating “Buy Now” buttons which can be placed alongside your product offerings. This is the cheapest way to sell online, and means you don’t have the expense of setting up a merchant account with the monthly fees that entails to the merchant provider, and also the payment gateway provider. Just be aware that PayPal’s commission rates are higher than those of a traditional merchant provider, so you will need to do the sums to see which route is cheapest. If your turnover is high, then a traditional merchant account will be better.
