eCommerce Web Development | eCommerce Website Design Manchester

Bespoke design for compelling e-commerce websites

We appreciate the different ambitions of retailers of all sizes and embrace the challenge of building custom retail online storefronts to achieve those ambitions.

We understand the fundamental differences and similarities between wholesale and consumer-facing retail businesses. We can provide bespoke ecommerce web development that perfectly reflect your business’s nature.

This can include forward planning for seasonal trends, giving you the tools you need to capitalise on your peak season, as well as to run limited-time campaigns to coincide with major retail events like Black Friday, Christmas, January sales and other red-letter calendar dates.

For larger retailers, especially those with multiple bricks-and-mortar premises, listing all of your locations online, with functionality such as postcode search or interactive maps can mean the difference between customers finding you or simply going elsewhere.

With the right ecommerce web development, incorporating strong search engine optimisation features, we can help you to compete with e-commerce retailers who sell the same or similar products online, or to differentiate yourself in terms of the service you provide.

Innovative ecommerce web development

Modern e-commerce platforms make it easier than ever to offer services like home delivery, click-and-collect and/or online ordering and stock checking.

Innovation may centre on how products can be searched or displayed in your online shop, how upsells or social media platforms are integrated, how users can customise products or something else you wish your site could do.

Even if you choose not to offer full e-commerce services, an up-to-date website can let potential customers know your location, opening times and contact details, as well as the kinds of products or specific items you sell.

However, it’s worth considering an e-commerce site if possible for your business – in September 2019 nearly 30% of non-food sales were made online, up from 28% the year before.

Maximise mobile conversion rates

Magento’s Year in Review report for 2017 found that most e-commerce traffic now comes from mobile devices – 46% via smartphones and nearly 57% when tablets are also included.

But conversion rates are lower on mobile devices, at 1.2% on smartphones, 2.0% on tablets and 2.5% on desktop and laptop computers.

A mobile responsive site can help to increase conversions from mobile devices, which in the past have often suffered from difficulty navigating and displaying pages correctly.

Our design team adopt a mobile first ethos, so although all of our websites are designed to look great on desktop computers, we also make sure they look and work great on smaller screens too.

If you choose to include e-commerce capabilities in your site, this can help to boost your conversions and basket sizes. In addition, a good mobile responsive design will still help you to rank higher in the search engines, and especially on Google.

Bespoke Features and Original Functionality.

If you have an unusual idea for how you want to appear online, a specific problem or challenge you want to overcome, or you operate in a niche wholesale or retail channel that requires innovation and creative thinking, we want to know.

Our design team loves finding technical solutions to real-world challenges, and have the vision and expertise to achieve the outcomes you need, whatever they may be.

This is made even more satisfying by integrating these bespoke features and functionality into a great-looking site that offers an intuitive user experience to visitors.

Whether it’s integrated stock management for fast-moving retail sites or multiple physical stores and warehouses, a new way to engage with customers as affiliates, partners or brand ambassadors, or something completely new, we can help to turn it into reality.

Payment Gateway Integration including Apple pay and Google pay

3rd Party Courier integration such as Royal mail and DPD

Intelligent suggested search to allow customers to find products as easily as possible

Ability to create complex delivery rules

Finish first in retailer search.

It’s important to not just appeal to human visitors, but also to ensure the search engines can see your content and rank it highly.

In order to do that, we can build your website using some of the world’s most popular content management systems, so that you can update it as your product range changes in the future.

We will make sure all of your business’s most essential information – such as your location, opening times and so on – are included with the appropriate mark-up so that Google, Bing and the other search engines can interpret that data in the correct way.

This may sound like a small step, but it’s crucial that this data is formatted correctly so that the search engines understand what it represents, and can present it directly in the search results when somebody finds you online.
