Open source eCommerce plugin built for the WordPress blogging system, known for its simplicity and customisability. Usually fairly quick to get up and running and with a large selection of extensions available from the WooCommerce user community to extend the capabilities of the original store. Recommended for small to medium-sized product ranges although has also been used for larger stores. Currently the most popular eCommerce platform on the web, slightly ahead of Magento.
A more advanced stand-alone eCommerce solution with a wider range of features out-of-the-box. Available as a free open-source solution through the Community Edition. Can take longer to setup and get up and running but usually recommended for larger in-depth stores with a greater product range. Extensively documented with a large community of users. Highly flexible and customisable with a dedicated extension store.
Although widely regarded as the most advanced eCommerce platform, Magento can lack some of the features of other content management systems. We specialize in the development of hybrid websites using Magento as the online store and WordPress as the CMS for additional page content or blog posts. A unified theme is created for each platform and a login shared between both admin areas with the option to easily switch between.
Sometimes an industry may be too specialised for usual platforms. Perhaps you need advanced integration with an external stock system or the shop needs to behave in a different way to a standard eCommerce store. We also have our own in-house solution built on an open-source MVC framework designed to be modular enabling features to be easily added or removed as needed. This system can be built on as needed to meet your requirements
