WooCommerce is an open-source, completely customisable eCommerce platform.
Built on WordPress. The software powering more than 34% of the web
Manage Orders and Customers
Simple and easy to set-up customer registration or guest checkouts make it easy to tailor your checkout experience, within the WooCommerce dashboard you can also offer one-click refunds, this can be limited by setting your team specific admin rights. Through the admin you can also access inventory management, order management and email templates to improve your end-to-end communication with customers.
Beautiful design & UX
Because Woocommerce sits on-top of WordPress you have access to all the hundreds of WordPress themes you know and love, so the eCommerce element of your business sits seamlessly alongside the rest of your site, with no compromise on design. It also allows you to access WooCommerce features within your WordPress site, like embedding products on pages, adding categories and tags for quick searching and turning your blog into a revenue stream.
Different product types
Physical, digital, subscriptions, events – you can sell pretty much anything through WooCommerce. You can also access features to sell Affiliate products from our sites to earn additional revenue. You also have plenty options for Shipping and Tax to makes sure you offer your customers exactly what they are expecting.
Made for Developers
While this may not be a selling point for you, the business owner – why this is important mis because developers love Woocommerce, so you will always be able to find expertise to help and support you to grow. The whole platform is open source and managed on GitHub which means there is a whole library of code changes and features ready to be used. Every hook, filter, API endpoint, major release and extension is full documented which again makes our lives easier and your site build faster.
We create beautiful shopping experiences through clear strategy, design & UX
Led by our Managing Director, Mark Purdy, our discovery workshops are based on his tried and tested method of covering all angles of a business proposition. For any full Design and Build project we do, we always include at least one Discovery and Strategy session in the project plan. This often raises many conversations about features and functions that maybe weren’t thought about in the original brief. We also run these workshops as standalone sessions for business owners who have spent a little too long ‘in’ their business and want a fresh independent expert to analyse and drive a more exploratory review
User Stories & Personas
Before we. Start any design we will walk you through identifying and collating all of your types of customers in order to group them into what we call ‘personas’. This process identifies up to 5 different customer journeys through your business and what those customers need in order to convert successfully. This process is critical when scoping out new features as it is something to revert back to and ask yourself the question – ‘which of my customer persona challenges does this solve?. It also allows us to get a feel for who we are designing the site for; what do they like? What do they need? How will they react to different content? All of this is critical to a successful design.
Wireframing & Prototyping
For most projects we start off with wireframing in order to agree information hierarchy without the distraction of colours / images / fonts and logos. This is a quick process and allows you to focus your attention on what are the most important messages throughout your website or app. We use Invision for sharing and collating feedback and can often make amendments immediately for screen share sessions to view options. The wireframing process also allows our development team to get an early start on build as the overall structure will be signed off before design begins.
Design, UX & UI
Creative isn’t just visuals like it used to be (in the days of print and media). A critical element of the creative process now involves the micro interactions that happen. Does a button animate when hovered over? Do the images move as a user scrolls down a page? How will a page react if a user shrinks the window? There are hundreds of these questions we have to ask ourselves when preparing designs for the development team, again reiterating the importance of create and tech, design and development working together throughout a project. We love design, from Logos to fonts and Photography to CTA’s, everything needs to work harmoniously for a seamless user experience.
Web Development that’s fit for purpose.
We’ve been working with WordPress and WooCommerce for years, often helping businesses that already have a site but have ran into trouble. Whether you want to start from scratch or get us to fix and optimise – we’re ready to speak to you.
As the nature of WordPress and WooCommerce is that you can essentially do anything, it’s important that you work with an experienced team who won’t necessarily just say ‘yes’ to everything. We will take your brief and use our years of eCommerce experience to make suggestions for the best possible solution that not only delivers your required goal, but also works harmoniously with the technology itself. We take care of everything, from site audits, simple tidy-ups, new work, performance optimisation, security, through to site rebuilds, large-scale custom ERP and system integrations OR anything else you need help with.
Integrations & Extensions
One the huge benefits of WordPress and WooCommerce is it’s community and marketplace of plugins. The only caveat of this is that it can be a bit of a minefield as they are literally thousands of developers that have built products you can add into your system and sometimes sadly the quality of those extensions is not ideal. That’s where our experience comes in, we can evaluate any extension before using it and will also make recommendations on whether an extension is even needed or if the same result can be achieved using native functionality.
Testing & QA
As we’ve said, we’ve been doing this a long time. Over the years we have optimised our own internal deployment processes and QA checks to ensure everything about your website is robust and fast. All of our projects are headed up by Kevin Mace, Head of Development. Kevin only allows perfect code to make it past his QA and onto your live site so you know what your customers experience will be perfect.
