By adopting BIGcommerce, our developers can design with freedom, ignite creativity and craft beautiful online store experiences through great eCommerce website design.
To create these online shops, we use design tools that know no bounds. This allows you to operate an online platform without worry, taming operational complexity with an easy-to-use, interface that can be integrated with Google Shopping.
In terms of features and functionality, we guarantee the best engagement value by ensuring your site is fully optimised for SEO, is technically sound, and most importantly of all, complements your brand.
We do this by taking the following factors into consideration:
Google Shopping, previously referred to as Google Products or Google Product Search, is a Google service that enables consumers to search for products on an online shop, comparing the prices of different brands’ products and services.
To use Google Shopping, you must have a Google AdWords account in place. This tool allows eCommerce websites to run their shopping campaigns, whilst a Google Merchant Centre manages your ‘product feed’.
Those adopting this service from Google can effectively use it to gain more reach and target more customers, showcasing the services or products you offer in a flattering light.
In a nutshell, inventory management is the sourcing, storing, and selling of stock. To excel in this area, you must understand how much stock you own, how much you should market it for, where to store it, and how long to keep it.
For any eCommerce business, grasping how to manage inventory is key – irrespective of the size of the company in question. Successfully managing stock levels avoids waste, reduces expenses, and saves time. The result? When you stay on top of supply, you generate more customer focus. Why? Because you’re giving your customers the products and services they want.
Many businesses are unaware of just how important inventory management best practice is. Unfortunately, a variety of eCommerce companies still lack relevant knowledge in this area.
To give an example, some of the biggest firms on the planet have collapsed due to not having access to the correct expertise, systems and techniques.
A good inventory management system should include the following pointers to ensure their eCommerce store stays at the top;

We offer several mobile themes, suited to all brands – irrespective of size or sector.

Our developers can assist you with such a development, allowing you to offer a versatile offering, available on more than just one platform.
Today’s consumers love being able to download a shopping app from the App Store, mainly because it gives them access to services at their fingertips from Hastings.
BigCommerce allows the brands we work with to sell on multiple websites, including some of the most prevalent shopping platforms like Amazon, eBay, and even Facebook.
To ensure you stay one step ahead of your competition, you mustn’t overlook these platforms, especially if you wish to drive traffic to your website and grow your client base.
In terms of having the option to sell products and your brand’s story on social, this is key to brands wishing to integrate a social aspect into their online platform.
It’s also another extremely popular avenue for online sales and product promotion.
BigCommerce offers the potential to lead more traffic to your website, using tools including shopping feeds and product syndication.
In addition to this, Bigcommerce allows you to connect with eCommerce platforms, whilst benefitting from popular shopping feeds including Google product search and Shopzilla.
Since time is money, a quick set-up is key to getting your online store up and running in a minimal amount of time.
This is another benefit of BigCommerce and one that ensures your ideas are turned into a reality as soon as humanly possible.
With its ability to create coupon codes and loyalty cards, BigCommerce allows for endless customer loyalty possibilities.
How? By allowing you to distribute these cards as and when you wish, giving you the freedom to structure your marketing strategy in a way that benefits your brand.

To ensure you stay on trend and one step ahead of your competition, investing in API interfaces (Application Programming Interfaces) is a must.
Why? It’s the only way to keep up with the ever-changing digital world.
In a nutshell, API integration is the link between two or more applications.
APIs allow these systems to exchange data, keeping this data in sync, heightening productivity, and ultimately, driving revenue for your eCommerce website.
API can also be determined as a business’s online programming interface, which enables applications to communicate with backend systems.
This tech is a crucial part of selling products on the World Wide Web by granting them access to services by adding codes to various applications. For example, showcasing your company’s location on Google Maps.
It allows businesses to run seamlessly whilst benefitting their customers by providing them with useful data.
A payment gateway should be thought of as the metaphorical cash register in an online transaction. You need this setup to generate virtual sales on your eCommerce website.
This merchant service processes credit card payments for eCommerce sites, including Shopify, using popular payment gateways including Stripe, PayPal or Braintree and Square.

Conversion rate optimisation (CRO) is one of the single most important ingredients for eCommerce success.
As well as an array of top tried and tested CRO methods that many eCommerce development agencies use, there are several very effective, lesser-known CRO techniques, some of which can pay off when used correctly.
Conversion rate optimisation (CRO) is a technique applied to your eCommerce website, which enables it to work smarter. In a nutshell, this process persuades customers to take the action you want them to.
This could be subscribing to an email newsletter or marketing email, clicking on a video, providing feedback or completing online forms.
Most importantly, CRO persuades consumers to make a purchase, and even more importantly, repeat this purchase time and time again. The goal? To generate a loyal following.
High web traffic volume is all good and well, but ensuring a high percentage of users convert is the biggest challenge.
CRO works by fine-tuning user interface (UI) elements to nurture consumer relationships by reducing friction.
The result? An increase in consumer actions. CRO is determined by dividing the number of web visitors to a certain page by the number of conversions on a webpage.
There are various methods you can take into consideration to heighten your website’s CRO, which can be put in place at every stage of the user’s journey, from their first visit to your website to them buying a product or service.
When users become customers, there is, even more, to be done to coax brand loyalty and repeat business.
When we analyse CRO, we’re able to discover missed opportunities, which you can then relay to your in-house marketing teams. A well-devised and well-executed CRO plan can have a huge effect on your overall marketing strategy.

The contemporary world we live in today is a big fan of online content, particularly websites. Almost every company in existence has its very own website, without one, it’s easy to fall behind the competition.
When it comes to types of websites, there are different variants to choose from, including both informational websites and eCommerce options, both of which perform differently.
An information website showcases information about the services and products of a particular business. This style of website can vary dramatically, ranging from tips on how to cook a certain dish to medical information.
Businesses opting for these web platforms use them solely as a platform to provide information, display past work and describe the services they offer. Consumers can’t make actual purchases on an information website, these must be completed offline.
The main purpose of an information site? To teach your target audience more about your business and services.
In most scenarios, consumers prefer to do their own research on companies before committing, this is when an information website comes in handy.
An eCommerce website on the other hand provides consumers with an online platform in which to purchase services or products directly from a business, irrespective of location.
E-commerce website platforms are designed to facilitate this exact function in the shape of commercial transactions.
These transactions necessitate the online transmission of information. E-commerce sites comprise the likes of retail stores, auction sites, business-to-business services, music sites and financial management sites.
Some examples of prevalent eCommerce websites include retail giants Amazon and eBay, as well as iTunes, Zappos and Overstock.
Although the purpose of building a web platform surrounds the promotion of products on the World Wide Web, an eCommerce website takes this one step further.
One of the benefits of having some form of eCommerce website includes saving you a great deal on overheads and expenses, whilst providing your audience with a convenient, hassle-free shopping site.
Whether you use website builders like Wix, work alongside a development company like us, or utilise free eCommerce development services, a well developed and designed e-commerce platform enables your customers to take advantage of your offerings from almost anywhere, at any time.
When it comes to marketing your eCommerce website, never underestimate the power of the written word. As Bill Gates said ‘Content is King.’
Great content has the power to convey a wealth of information, educate your consumers, enthral them, and persuade them to buy your products or services.
CMS, otherwise known as a content management system, is a type of software that helps you develop, edit, and publish content on your web platform.
This technology plays an important part in your eCommerce site, helping you to ensure the website is up-to-date and your marketing strategy is on point.
One of the most popular CMS platforms in existence today is WordPress. An incredible 34% of website platforms are powered by WordPress today. Despite this, it’s not the only CMS platform available.
There are numerous options, spanning from free CMS platforms to enterprise-level custom options. Each model boasts its unique features and advantages.
CMS is a great tool to adopt if you wish to attract customers and share your skillset and your point of view in Hastings.
It’s also a cost-effective tool, with content marketing being one of the most reliable sources to draw in organic traffic. The result? A better customer experience.
Having a dedicated content management system, one that can amalgamate with your existing eCommerce software, is key to optimising your content.
You should treat CMS as your contemporary printing press – a tool that assists you in sharing your content with a wider audience.
There are several CMS platforms to choose from. To ensure the best results, the platforms we design promise to be a natural fit for your eCommerce website.
Some of the most popular CMS platforms to choose from for those who want to sell online include;
Launched in 2012, WooCommerce, designed to work seamlessly with WordPress, is an open-source e-commerce plugin. This platform is ideally suited to small to large-sized online businesses.
The plugin is a popular choice for those looking for something simple to install and personalise. It also comes in the form of a free base product.
Shopify is a good choice for those looking to build a visually appealing online platform. It’s easy to use and as such, popular with new, smaller businesses who are only just taking their offerings online.
Shopify features several CMS features and easy-to-use templates.
This Adobe product is another open-source eCommerce platform, available in both cloud-hosted and self-hosted options.
This highly developed programme is a good choice for larger businesses with many developer resources.
Drupal is a highly regarded open-source CMS focusing on developing digital experiences, designed to target various audiences across several channels.
Similar to WordPress, Drupal is not used for eCommerce development and sales alone and can be combined with other plugins and frameworks too.
This free, open-source CMS is a great tool to add to your toolbox if you wish to publish a variety of online content.
Joomla is designed on a model-view-controller framework, which can be used solo or with several extensions that work alongside Joomla to create open-source eCommerce solutions.
