Shopping trolley

We can provide an enterprise-level e-commerce system, enabling you to sell online. This could be physical products, digital downloads, services, memberships or subscriptions — all backed by the powerful WordPress platform, giving you the full control and flexibility you need.

WordPress and e-commerce

Until recently, the e-commerce potential of WordPress was limited. The available plugins tended to be below par — some containing bugs, others providing a limited range of features. They couldn’t really compare with the bigger, more established platforms such as Magento, osCommerce or Shopify.

But now all that has changed and in the last year new systems have been released and existing ones updated, allowing e-commerce on WordPress websites to become a genuine viable alternative. Some of the better e-commerce plugins now available include WooCommerce, Shopp, Cart66 WP Commerce and Gold Shopping Cart.
