Ecommerce Website Design

An Ecommerce website from Digidude web design is an integral part of any sales channel. In fact, it may be your only sales channel which is why its important to get it right. Your website has to be quick and trustworthy. It must, easy to use and showcase your products in the best possible light. The checkout process is key here. And not forgetting the ability to process payments securely too.

  • A successful sale starts long before someone clicks 'buy'.

Your online store will never close. It will stay open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Customers can browse, and buy your products whenever and wherever they are.

Ecommerce website requirements.

Naturally, an ecommerce website needs much more functionality than a brochure site. However, it doesn’t need to get complicated. The main principles are the same. Account creation, products, shopping cart/checkout. Of course, you’ll need to provide customers with a payment method too.

We’ve worked with a range of payment providers, including Stripe (our favourite!), WorldPay, SagePay and PayPal. So when it comes to your business, we’ve got your back.

Some of the most common features we get asked for include:

  • Postcode Lookup / Address population
  • Multiple Delivery Methods
  • Dynamic pricing and bulk discounts
  • Product customisations

Please just let us know if there are any special features you wish to include in your e-commerce website and we can take care of the rest.

Design

Design

Drawing from your requirements, the design of the website is created bespokely in Photoshop by one of our designers. We’ll work closely with you during this phase, exchanging ideas until we arrive at the final design for your website. Factors such as the organisation’s brand and target audience play a key part in developing the overall visual style of the site. By the end of this first stage, we deliver the design of the website and all subsequent pages in PDF format to be signed off. 25% of the overall cost of the project is due at the beginning of this phase.

Development

Development

During this phase, the graphic elements from the final prototype are used to develop a digital version of the approved PDF design. You will receive a testing link to view the design and a framework for the website’s operation on our staging server (To note: this is not the completed website. Some backend development will not yet be in place so not all functionality will be available).25% of the overall cost of the project is due at the beginning of this phase.

Population

Population

This is the phase in which the website functionality is developed and content populated as outlined in the proposal. For Ecommerce websites, this means adding products, and set up of shipping and payment capabilities. In the case of website redesigns, content may be sourced from the previous site where applicable. If copywriting or new content is required, this will also be developed at this stage.25% of the overall cost of the project is due at the beginning of this phase.

Testing & Launch

Testing & Launch

Phase 4 - Testing & Launch Before site launch, testing will be carried out in staging in order to ensure that the site functions as per requirements, as well as testing for website interoperability and mobile/browser considerations. In the cases where search engine optimisation is required, this will also be performed during this phase. CMS training can be provided in advance of launch if required, to ensure that you are able to update your website’s content with ease.The final 25% of payment is due at the end of this phase, and the project is signed off to go live.
