Leverage the power of ecommerce websites to sell products and services online
We believe that every business can monetise their products, services and knowledge by selling online through ecommerce websites, which can sell physical, virtual and downloadable products with a vast array of features available to help boost your conversion rates.
What are ecommerce websites?
Ecommerce websites provide businesses the ability to sell their products and services online. Ecommerce websites typically have products listed in different categories with the ability to search and filter through the catalogue. Customers are then given an option to add items to their basket before completing their purchase, sometimes with the option to provide a voucher or discount code.

What are the best platforms for ecommerce websites?
There are many platforms out there for ecommerce websites which give you a vast array of features at your disposal off the shelf, whilst still giving you the ability to add additional features, either from a marketplace or through bespoke software development.
Some of the more popular platforms would be WooCommerce, Shopify, Magento, BigCommerce and OpenCart. We Do Code can work with any platform and would always evaluate each client’s specific requirements before advising which platform suits them best.
Can I add an online shop to my existing website?
Whether you can add an online shop to your existing website depends on which platform your existing website uses and if it supports adding an online shop. With WordPress powering 37.4% of all websites, it’s no surprise that WooCommerce is the most popular ecommerce platform, giving WordPress users the ability to add ecommerce features to their website with a plugin.
If you are not using WordPress to power your website, it can be possible to connect an ecommerce platform to your existing website in a way that makes it look like it’s part of the website to the customer.
How can I take payment through ecommerce websites?
Most platforms powering ecommerce websites integrate with popular payment gateways such as Stripe, PayPal, WorldPay, SagePay, Adyen, Braintree and more, but they also often support installing plugins to enable them if your chosen payment gateway isn’t supported by default.
You can also typically choose to offer “offline” payment options, such as cash on delivery, bank transfer or cheque.
How do I ship orders taken through my online shop?
How you ship orders taken through your online shop does depend on the platform used and it’s features. Most platforms will allow you to offer basic delivery options at different prices which you would then process manually and arrange for a courier to deliver the order.
However, if you wanted more complex logic, such as dependent on dimensions or weight, you may need either a plugin or a piece of bespoke software development to facilitate this.
