Our Approach to Ecommerce Design
Building an ecommerce site isn’t exactly rocket science. But to be successful, it’s essential to conduct extensive research, devise a sound strategy and have the technical skills behind you.
Success in the ecommerce environment doesn’t happen by chance. Your online store should be built according to the latest design and UX standards. Our ecommerce designers and developers are highly trained and experienced in this area and understands the important role that the research process plays in shaping the look and feel of your online store.
Strategy & Planning
In order to be successful, you must have a good understanding of your market. Looking at how your competitors are selling online and the strategy they have in place can help you define a workable roadmap to success. Whether it be in their marketing efforts, the way their website is set up, pricing or how they deal with shipping, it’s a good idea to know and learn from your competition.
Essential Features of an Ecommerce Website
Multiple payment methods
Your ecommerce site should have multiple payment options to make it convenient for your customers. We can easily integrate any payment method or gateway if your choosing, and provide recommendations if you are unsure what’s suitable. Giving your customers a wider choice of payment options can actually increase your sales. Obviously, you might have a personal preference on which ones to include, or you may not be set up to receive payment via certain methods. But be aware that a proportion of customers will abandon a store on the payment page if their preferred payment method is not available. So it’s in your best interests to include as many as possible.
Advanced shopping cart
Cart abandonment is the nightmare that every ecommerce site owner wants to avoid. With our advanced shopping cart optimisation, we ensure that your customers experience a smooth, frictionless checkout that minimises the rate of cart abandonment. Allow your customers to check out as guests or open an account if they choose to. Using persistent cookies, we can save the shopping cart in cases where the customer gets distracted and doesn’t complete the purchase. Upon returning, the customer can find the items conveniently available in the cart as they were before. This is a proven method that increases sales over the long run.
Better search and filtering capability
Nicely optimised search and filtering options can help your customers find exactly what they need. The search bar of your site should show a list of popular related products whenever a potential customer types a product related keyword. Similarly, when a customer views a product, a list of related products should appear at the bottom of the page. Don’t worry if you find this complicated. Our expert team will configure your site to automate the process. Of course, you can also manually add items to the suggested product list, if you have something specific in mind.
Easy customer management options
Each of the ecommerce sites we design come with built-in customer management tools. In addition to the standard features, you may like to add features such as the live chat functionality, email subscription options, specialised shipping profiles, specific tools for analytics or any other custom option you prefer. Just ask our team.
In your ecommerce dashboard, you can easily view which products are most popular with your customers according to views and sales. Answering customer queries and handling their requests are also made simple from the back end. Various customer management options help you take care of your valued clients and keep them coming into your onsite store.
Designed to maximise sales
At the end of the day, the purpose of your ecommerce site is to sell products. A conversion friendly website designed by an experienced ecommerce agency goes a long way. We help you select the perfect visual style for your online store that suits your products and brand image. Your ecommerce website should give you the option of running sales campaigns, whether that be the promoting of specific products, special offers or encouraging customers to create wish lists, for instance. Our ecommerce designers can suggest and integrate a wide range of enticing options to keep things fresh and interesting.
