Many of our clients need to reach geographically disperse or even global markets cost effectively. Their product or service offering lends itself to online selling (e.g. travel services, hotel rooms, elearning courses, DIY materials among many others.
We will configure and implement the best available Open Source eCommerce “shopping cart” platforms for our clients. We recommend that you do not develop a bespoke shopping cart except as a last resort. Robust, flexible and well supported ecommerce platforms already exist.
These include standalone platforms like Actinic and Magento to eCommerce plug-ins for the main open source content management systems e.g. virtuemart.net (joomla plug-in)
Even before implementation we work with you to establish the business case for a full ecommerce platform. Do you really need it and will it generate a sufficient ROI? We help you to think through the implications looking at your product, target markets, sales process, working out how best to configure your eCommerce platform. Other key areas to consider are what payment systems to employ (direct to your bank via a merchant account approach or using a third party processor like paypal or worldpay) .
