Little Fire Digital are an e-commerce web design agency with over twenty years experience in building and sourcing both bespoke and off the shelf eCommerce solutions.
We started out as an award winning graphic design agency and grew into being a technical web development agency that have been delivering online shopping websites since the very beginnings of e-commerce.
If you‘re just starting out, honestly, in many cases, you might be able to do it yourself. Shopify, Big Commerce or SquareSpace will all let you create and online store with little or no technical knowledge. If this is you, it may be the way to go. If you‘re just starting out, we‘d love to design your website, we’d love to set up your system, but DIY may be what we advise you to do.
There are a lot of them in e-commerce and even the so-called ‘free‘ services soon start asking for a few pounds here and a few there – it can add up quickly. But the biggest hidden cost is time, setting up e-commerce is fiddly, adding a product manifest can take ages, integrating payment-gateways can involve a lot of trial and error.
Without experience, the hidden costs can be huge.
If your business is up and running, if it‘s already trading at scale, you’ll already have a beast that needs to be fed. Interruptions to service can be costly and injurious to customer trust. You‘ll more than likely know what you need and you‘ll need them working fast.
There’s more to it than just setting up a website. Almost by definition, an e-commerce platform needs to integrate with other systems: payment gateways (Stripe, Paypal, SagePay and so on), email platform to use (MailChimp, SendInBlue, Klaviyo and the like) and and the all important Google Analytics. The choice of each may depend on how they interact with the e-commerce platform you’re using. If you want this done without an interruption to your business – saving you time and money – Little fire Digital are likely to have the knowledge needed to get it right first time.
With over twenty years experience as an e-commerce website design company, we can avoid most trial and error, we know where many of the hidden costs lie and we’re likely know the best solution to meet your needs.
