We have crafted many custom made bespoke ecommerce websites over the years, and used various off the shelf packages from Actinic right up to Magento, OS Commerce, WOO Commerce, LightCMS and more.
Most of our own ecommerce sites have been built using a bespoke hand coded CMS and shop system that we have developed ourselves over a large number of years. This system is effective, simple to use and very easy for your customers to get to grips with as well as being extremely affordable.
We have created this system ourselves, so we have plenty of experience integrating the sites with most of the major payment gateways including HSBC, Worldpay, PayPal/eBay, Payment Sense, SagePay/ProtX and a few smaller payment providers so we are well versed in what is needed to setup the payment systems and which ones offer the best investment depending on your business.
We are currently a major fan of WooCommerce as a serious piece of ecommerce kit which can be installed via the WordPress system and our current project list includes some large WooCommerce sites, so we are happy to recommend this system alongside our own, for larger online stores.
