We’ve been very busy building responsive ecommerce sites for online retailers using Shopify.

Ecommerce is rapidly growing: predicted to grow from $231 billion this year to over $370 billion by 2016 – a 10% annual growth rate. Ecommerce is big business for the commercial heavyweights, but it has also led to a whole new breed of online retailer who can run a small business from their home, with minimal overheads and excellent opportunities for growth – particularly when they host their website with Shopify.

Shopify really is a superb e-commerce platform. Whether you’re a seasoned online retailer or are looking to take your tentative first steps into selling your products online, Shopify gives you everything that you need to create a beautiful, bespoke online store. Powering over 60,000 online stores, Shopify offers store owners total control over their website design, industry-standard payment functionality and the potential to develop their website as the business grows.

Whilst Shopify offers over 100 website templates, we’re working with a number of businesses who want to use the Shopify platform but develop their own web design. It’s a highly functional CMS with everything that you need to monitor your performance, manage your orders and market your business. You can also integrate it with your existing website or store, meaning that it’s a highly cost-effective solution for online retailers.

With mobile users contributing to a rapidly-growing percentage of online retail sales, Shopify is well suited for hosting responsive web design. Built with HTML 5, we’re able to deliver websites which are highly compatible with tablet, iPhone and Android users.
