Many clients approach us about getting an ecommerce website up and running and unsure of what platform to choose from. For a dedicated ecommerce website we use a variety of different open source platforms that are robust and fit for purpose.
Opencart is our favourite and most popular platform for development. It's lightweight and highly customisable which allows us to have more flexibility over the design. The backend is simple and intuitive making it easy to manage your store.
Price range - £1000 - £3000
Magento is an exceptional platform rich in functionality. One drawback is the size and resource requirements needed to deploy. We recommend only using Magento if you intend to sell thousands of products rather than hundreds. The backend is vast and can take a little time to find your way around.
£2000 - £10000
Wordpress has a number of ecommerce plugins. We would only recommend using Wordpress if you were selling a few products online as the backend is confusing and can be clunky.
Price range - £1000 - £ 3000
We also have our own system that is not solely an ecommerce platform but does allow you to easily setup an online shop and start trading online. We can also integrate custom checkout and configuration modules. If you are selling products with multiple and complex pricing structures this is a perfect solution.
I created my business around 6 months ago with very little capital but needed a website to help market. I was actually recommended Cloud Web Solutions and from day 1 I've had the most amazing experience. Not only was my website designed to a high standard, I pay a monthly direct debit that has helped in my first year. I also know after 2 years, I can rebrand and keep my costs. Jack has been fantastic, and would recommend all businesses to use this fantastic service. I will also add, all my queries and requests are always dealt with very quickly and extremely professionally.
I find Cloud Web Solutions very professional and committed to delivering a first rate service to their customers. Jack's attention to detail and understanding of what the client needs together with his patience with the fine tuning process is a refreshing change to my past experience with website developers. I would definitely recommend Cloud Web Solutions for a first class service whatever the size of your business.

We can't fault Jack and the team at Cloud Web Solutions, Any request is completed without argument or issue and our dreams in regards to our website have become reality. This company is a must use for any business when it comes to website design, they are true geniuses.
Cloud provides a fast accurate and intelligent service both in building sites and maintaining them. It is competitive and effective. It is my first port of call for all my websites and I recommend it all the time to others, so I am glad I have a chance to put something on this site to encourage people to use it.
Cloud is Brilliant. I had been very badly let down by a company who promised the earth and it took them 12 weeks do tell me they couldn't come up with more than a holding page. I didn't know what I was doing!
