Not only do we develop custom WordPress websites, but we also custom build WordPress eCommerce websites using the same technology!
If you have a design (PSD to WordPress) that you’ve had created by a design agency and want that developed into a WordPress eCommerce website, then you have come to the right place! We can build a custom Genesis WordPress eCommerce website right down to pixel perfect accuracy, with all of the benefits you would normally get when developing on the Genesis framework.
- Our WordPress eCommerce websites allow you to sell:
- Simple Products (single item stock products)
- Variable Products (items that come in different colours and sizes)
- Affiliate Products (tracking URL’s)
- Virtual Products (downloadable products)
They can also be configured just to sell to specific Countries or globally, the choice is really yours. Below we have highlighted some of the key features that we can implement on your custom WordPress eCommerce websites:
Every online shop needs a payment portal and we integrate Standard PayPal as part of your WordPress eCommerce website development. This allows you to take payment from day one without any need for any PCI compliance as this is all taken care of by PayPal.
We do, however, have masses of data that shows 9 out of 10 people surprisingly use a debit / credit card when given the opportunity to pay with a card over using Paypal.
Obviously we highly recommend you apply for an SSL certificate making you PCI compliant for your shiny new custom WordPress eCommerce website. This then allows you to have onsite checkout payment facilities meaning your visitors don’t have to leave your website to pay.
Additional Payment Gateways for eCommerce
We charge a one off fee for additional payment gateway solutions and guide all of our clients through this process very closely.
The SSL and additional payment gateways need to be considered as extra costs that will help your website work more productively and leaving less of a chance for basket abandonment which in turn increases revenue.
We cater for multiple payment gateways but the best onsite solution we have worked with, and our customers have had the most amount of success with, is the Paypal Pro on site payment gateway.
This has a monthly subscription and a per transaction cost that also needs to be considered. But, we have found that even the cost of the 3rd party off site payment gateway providers have the standard monthly fee + a per transaction costing structure so ultimately the cost difference is the SSL.

Shipping by weight, size, courier company, country and more..
With most WordPress eCommerce websites, because of the vast range of products that most shopkeepers’ stock, means there can be a need for multiple shipping classes. To help with organising the cost of shipping for each individual item, we can override the shipping class when the customer adds more to the shopping basket.
With this type of multi configured shopping basket means the shipping rate possibilities are endless meaning you don’t have to compromise your product prices to achieve the correct shipping rate. This can lead to the more savvy online shoppers abandoning the shopping basket due to shipping rate mis-configuration.
Promoting Your WordPress eCommerce Website
Once all of the hard work of building and populating your website is done, you can move on to the fun bit of promoting your shop! All of our SEO search engine marketing tips and tricks work a treat but there is one added feature that we implement into your WordPress eCommerce website as part of the build which is a coupon code generator. This allows you to offer selected discounts on individual items or site wide % or fixed price discounts.
Even offer your shop customers free shipping coupon codes. The combination of all the different offers is up to your imagination and what you wish to offer your customers.
There is plenty more that we could go into detail on including automated email order confirmation, sequential order numbering, invoice, delivery note creation and printing capabilities, direct message your customers to keep them informed of shipping tracking plus many, many more!.
