Webshop Development Options
Different solutions for different requirements. As a first step it is very important to specify the requirements of the webshop together with our Client. The offered solution depends on how complicated the webshop is, how many items will be handled and what kind of other special functions are needed.
Generally there are three solutions which we propose to our clients depending on the specification.
WordPress with Woocommerce plugin:
WordPress is one of the most commonly used website platform. This platform is very easy to set up and to adjust it to our requirements. It has an excellent Content Management System which enables to create new post, pages very easily without any development. The woocommerce plugin grants all the webshop services, which are needed. WordPress is a perfect choice in case of smaller webshops.
Magento is the leading platform for webshop development. This platform has been developed for the management of large webshops. It can handle large numbers of products eg: 500+. It also has a very good CMS. It is a bit more complicated to set up in the beginning, which needs extra development. This solution is suggested if the webshop function is the key function of the site and site has to handle large number of products.
We suggest to develop a custom webshop, if there are really rare and special functions which the webshop has to handle and the above mentioned solutions do not cover these functions.
We make sure that your web shop is search engine optimised and we will build in tracking functions, so you see how your sales process performs.
Process and timing:
Webshop development takes usually 3-4 months and one of the key factors determining the production time is how fast the content can be created together with the client. There are four major phases of online store development:
Specifying the functions needed together with our customer
Developing design and wireframe proposals
Developing the app after the approved design and wireframe
