Startup eCommerce Website

WooCommerce website development project for Octopus Pals

Updated: 22 Feb 2019 | Category: WooCommerce | Tags: Startup Websites

I created this startup eCommerce website for a small crafty start-up called Octopus Pals. They needed a quick online selling solution to advertise their handmade products. I used WooCommerce to create variable products with multiple options to choose from including colour.

Starting an eCommerce business from scratch can be daunting if you don’t have any prior experience creating a website. Whilst I can’t tell you how to set up an eCommerce business, I can help when it comes to the design and build of your first WooCommerce website.

I offer bespoke WordPress websites with full WooCoomerce setup which means you’ll be ready to start selling online. Whilst Woo can be complex, I’ll make sure your online store is set up correctly with your choice of payment gateways such as PayPal, Stripe or SagePay. I can also help with shipping rules to ensure your customers receive their goods and customised email notifications so you can keep customers informed.

""Love the site, it looks so professional and is easy for our customers to use.""

The results

Octopus Pals owners wanted a website that they could manage easily but also looked great. They wanted to integrate social media feeds to keep everyone updated and showcase their crafty creations. It was also important that the site was fully responsive so as to enhance user experience.

I created a budget-friendly eCommerce solution which they can build on as their business grows.

It’s best to start small and grow an eCommerce website as your online business evolves. You don’t want to over-invest in features and functions that you the find your customers don’t use or need.
