Cobweb Design & Development are eCommerce specialists building and supporting eCommerce websites since 2000. We have used various systems over the years such as Cactushop, Prestashop, osCommerce, Virtuemart (Joomla) etc. but now recommend Magento for robust, scalable and easy to maintain eCommerce stores (see our eCommerce website portfolio).
Magento has proved to be very reliable and customisable. Combining Extensions, Templates, product info & images is effectively what we do. Converting from Virtuemart to Magento has been done many times.
Very good stock control, product specifications and even 1 page checkouts are desirable for our eCommerce websites. We have been building eCommerce websites for over 15 years and Magento to us seems like the best option for our customers and us for the moment.
Depending on your needs we can setup an online store quickly and relatively cheaply. Getting the site up and running is often the easy part. Getting people to the site and encouraging them to buy is probably the most essential skill of being an online merchant. So we build the websites to be Search Engine Friendly in order for you to show up well in Google over time.
As part of the process we setup up Credit Card Processing usually via Paypal etc., meaning you can accept VISA, MASTERCARD etc. Building & running these ecommerce stores have provided insights into shopping cart systems, credit card processing systems, selling, marketing & probably most importantly of all Customer Service.
