Creating Media have created many e-Commerce sites using our versatile platform which has many benefits for SEO, ease of use, compatibility and loading time.
Creating Media have designed online shops for a wide variety of clients, including Brakes Catering Equipment who took over £250k per annum, to our most recent eCommerce client Defcon 1, a specialist airsoft startup still populating their shop and developing their range. This shows just how adaptable the platform is, allowing your business, turnover and product range to grow without needing to change platforms.
However, the platform is also fully customisable to look bespoke to your business – Creating Media never use templates! Our experienced design team and understanding of your business will help to make your website exactly fit for purpose and attractive.
Once we have designed the visuals for the shop, we will hand over log-in details for the back end system. This will allow you to add and manage products and most website content. We will hold training at a venue of your choice (e.g. our office, your office) to show you the basics of the system, and then offer phone and email support for 3 months after your site has gone live, just to tackle any teething problems. The back end system is also tested across various devices and all main internet browsers, so however you use the web you should have no trouble accessing the system.
The product options built into CactuShop are extensive. The system allows customers to choose between multiple currency options, letting the built-in real-time exchange rate take care of everything automatically. Products are automatically fed to Google, meaning that they appear in searches. The back end system also allows you to create bulk discounts for certain items, or customers groups who get different prices (i.e. trade clients who receive wholesale discounts). There is also an easy way to create special offers and promotions whenever you like – perfect for slow times of year when customers need that extra incentive. When it comes to shipping you have the option to allow real-time UPS shipping quotes to customers, meaning that you don’t have to worry about changing shipping costs.
