Custom ecommerce development
An ecommerce website is more than just the items you sell. It’s the experience you create for your visitors. A positive user experience is far more likely to turn a shopper into a paying customer.

Our ecommerce website development process
We draw upon many years of ecommerce web development and project delivery experience.
Our proven five-step approach is designed to save you time and money, ensuring the success of your project.
Stage one begins with a discovery & immersion phase where we’ll learn more about your organisation, customers, members, and other audiences. We’ll conduct user experience research to understand your audience’s needs and put them at the core of your website.
Stage two is user experience & design, which will run in parallel. Based on the discovery work, we’ll design your new strategic and creative visual identity. We’ll develop an information architecture for the website, keeping SEO in mind, leading to wireframed designs and full visual designs.
Stage three is development & build. We’ll make progress iteratively and hold regular project management calls to ensure the build unfolds as planned.
In stage four, there will be your user acceptance testing, along with training and content entry. We’ll attend to the final snagging, allowing us all to ensure the new site is perfect and ready for the agreed release date.
For stage five, we can also provide ongoing support, hosting, maintenance, security and SEO services to ensure you continue to get the help you need.
The result? A high converting, revenue-driving, effective ecommerce website your customers will love and that your business can be proud of!

What types of ecommerce websites do you build?
We build the majority of our clients’ ecommerce websites using WooCommerce or Magento. Which we use depends on your needs, now and in the future. For high volume clients or clients with more complex requirements, we prefer Magento as the basis of our solution. Smaller, simpler ecommerce sites are better off with a solution based on WooCommerce (and therefore also WordPress). No matter which of the two suits your needs better, we will create a solution that offers you a site that can easily be updated and managed. It’s crucial that you have control of your ecommerce website and do not need to pay for every minor tweak or edit you need to make. We create solutions that integrate with many platforms and plugins, including warehousing systems, marketing software, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platforms, distribution platforms, and payment and accounting systems.
How much do BrightMinded’s ecommerce website development services cost?
The investment required for your ecommerce website development depends on several factors. One of the main requirements we assess is the development work’s complexity and scope, which directs the time to design and build the website. Each ecommerce development project is different and tailored to your specific business needs. Why not drop us a line, and we can have an informal chat to see how we might be able to help?
What methodologies do you use in your ecommerce website development work?
The principal methodology we use is Agile, although the approach and delivery choice may depend on your specific project needs. Taking an iterative approach to our work allows us to regularly adapt and improve the ecommerce web development quality, ensuring the success of the final website we deliver for you.
What happens after you finish building my ecommerce website?
After we deliver your finished ecommerce store, we’d love to provide you with ongoing technical support, maintenance and hosting should you need it. As we built your website, we know our work intimately and will be best placed to help you with further development requirements. Of course, if you want to maintain the website yourself, you will have everything you need, and you can always contact us if you need any help. We value long term relationships with our wonderful clients!
