WordPress e-commerce website design

web design kent - WordPress e-commerce website designWordPress has come a long way since it’s early days as a simple CMS. At kc web design kent we used to build bespoke e-commerce systems for big wholesale clothing companies that would take months to develop and integrate with internal stock management and ordering systems. These days we don’t do many bespoke e-commerce solutions but we do still create e-commerce website design here at kc web design kent. The costs involved in creating a bespoke e-commerce web design solution are high and can be prohibitive to most businesses so these days we tend to use different solutions.

There have been some very good e-commerce packages in recent years including the noes debunked Trading Eye and the very good, and still with us, Lemon Stand. At kc web design kent we’re experts in WordPress and Expression Engine and these top class content management systems can be used for e-commerce website design. Having created a number of e-commerce website design solution with both of these systems I have to say that WordPress comes top of my list.

The ease of setup and user friendly control panel makes WordPress ideal for small to medium e-commerce solutions. With the addition of the fantastic Woocommerce plugin a feature rich e-commerce website can be designed and built in a very short time and at minimal cost to the customer. The Woocommerce plugin gives website owners a rich suite of tools to deal with products and a complete order management system. Building this on top of WordPress means a whole e-commerce website can be built that our customers can have full control over including all page content, news sections and shop. Woocommerce is built by Woothemes and has a wealth of additional plugins to deal with all sorts of e-commerce features such as payment gateways, invoicing, Google product feeds, EU VAT, wish lists and anything else a modern shop needs.

Even though the combination of WordPress and Woocommerce can enable us to create fantastic e-commerce website designs, like all good e-commerce websites, it’s how that functionality gets translated into a good user experience that matters. Just grabbing a free theme and creating a shop isn’t always the right option. Making sure the buying process and user interface design is intuitive and sticks to standard design patterns is the key to creating a good online buying experience. At kc web design kent we’re experts in e-commerce website design and user interfaces and our bespoke designs will make sure your e-commerce website succeeds.
