What Type of Site Do I Need?

If you have an existing website, then we can add an online shopping facility to your site.
If you are starting off and need a brand new site then we can take care of that and create a fully integrated website with online shopping cart facility for you.
There are two types of website. One that is custom built and the other that is an “Off The Shelf” website. There are pros and cons for both.. So let’s take a look at that right now.

Custom Built Online Shop

Yes, we can build you a custom built online shop. This is a perfect choice if you are absolutely clear about what you want. If you have thought through the specific detail of what your site should looks like and how it should function then a custom built online shop is for you. We can create a perfectly tailored website for your needs. Yes, it will take a little longer than buying a website off the shelf but it will fit just right. Yes, it can take a little longer to develop but it will do exactly what you want it to do and it will fit seemlessly with your internal processes.

Off the Shelf Shop

Yes, we can create an online shop for you using what is often referred to as “Open Source Software”. You may already have heard of sites like this and some of the more popular choices are:

  • Joomla VirtueMart
  • Zen Cart
  • OSCommerce

Whichever you choose, rest assure we have the talent and skills to help you to create a great website that fits perfectly with your business needs. Yes, it will function in a very specific way. Yes, you will need to know a little about HTML to really get the most out of it and the management of the shop. Yes, this will not take so long to develop in comparison to a custom built website. Yes, this will not cost as much to develop. There are some pitfalls though. You are buying into software that is publicly available and widely used so there is a greater risk that your website is vulnerable to those that might want to cause disruption to your business; you need to couple this with the fact that there are regular security updates so anything that is identified as a problem is usually fixed quickly. You will just need to ensure that your website is regularly updated. In order to regularly update your site then you should avoid changes to core components and features. So this means you would need to accept the site as it is presented to you rather than changing it to fit your needs perfectly.

There is a Third Option!

Yes, there is a third option. The i4Commerce CMS offer a perfect solution. It is a fully tailored online shop that has all the features and functionality you need to successfully sell online. If you’re looking for a feature that isn’t already included then we’ll create it for you. So you can be sure that the website works the way you want it and fits seemlessly with your business processes. We’ll make sure of that!

i4Commerce CMS Offers Flexible Pricing Options

For many Small and Sole Trader businesses we understand just how important it is to manage your cash flow so we have a flexible pricing structure to help you get your business online and paying for itself. You can either pay up front for your new website or you can pay a monthly fee and we’ll design, develop and manage the site for you. The choice really is yours.
