eCommerce FAQs

What are the ongoing costs of eCommerce?
+

Depending on your platform it can be as low as $30 a month. One of the reasons we love WooCommerce is because it's a free open source plugin. You only pay for premium add-ons which are all reasonably priced! Shopify has higher ongoing costs but is generally more trouble-free and has a more refined backend.

What plugins do you recommend?
+

With each project, we will recommend the plugins that suit your needs. Some of our favourites for WooCommerce are PDF Invoices & Packing Slips, Product Addons, Smart Coupons and Checkout Field Editor. With Shopify, we love the custom fields addon.

What are the best things about WooCommerce?
+

1. It's so customisable. You host the code on your own server so you have full access to the code base. 2. It's free! 3. So many amazing plugins. 4. Seamless integration to your WordPress site. 5. You own the site. Unlike Shopify, you have full ownership and control of the site.

What are the best things about Shopify?

1. Slick backend that is optimised for selling eCommerce 2. Reliable infrastructure that can handle traffic spikes well 3. Growing number of good plugins 4. A nice flexible page editor 5. A lot of slick themes to choose from

What is the best payment gateway for eCommerce?
+

Stripe Payment Gateway for taking credit card purchases is a no brainer! It's a free plugin and a Stripe account is very easy to set up. It also supports Google Pay and Apple Pay.
