Our mission is simple. To build simple, elegant ecommerce sites that a budding entrepreneur can use to build their business. In 2016 authenticstyle estimated the cost of an ecommerce site ‘typically between £4,000 and £9,000’ with a 4 – 10 week building period. Two years later Outerbox estimates that ‘prices can range from $10,000 to $500,000 (£7557.75 to £377.887) or more; all depending on the complexity of the site.
Building a blog site is relatively easy with sites like WIX but an ecommerce site requires greater functionality and data imports set up. You could do it! It will take determination. lots and lots of learning and even more frustration when something does not work right.
We wanted to take the hassle out of this but still give you the scope to grow your site as you gain in confidence and skill.
The question you may be asking is how we can keep our prices so low.
Our Starter Sites are designed using a template. You may find other sites with the same design but with slightly different colour elements etc. We have a growing range of templates we use and will always try to make each side individual. As you move up the range we start to use custom designs and premium themes by Elegant Themes. The themes cost from $69 (£52) plus.
Then there is the time it takes to build a fully functional site.
