Fast Shop

Selling online is easy...

Doing it professionally, cost effectively and quickly is a very different story.

We have been working in the SME e-commerce area since 1999, so you could say we have learnt a few tricks along the way!

What is it?

'Fast Shop' uses the powerful combination of WordPress which powers an estimated 30% of websites globally, and Woocommerce, to deliver a quick to deploy solution for selling any type of product online. When combined with Stripe payments, it is the most professional, cost effective and long term solution for selling online, with almost infinite scaling abilities.

As with our 'Business Basics' package, Fast Shop is an all inclusive service, providing design, then hosting and core site maintenance for a year; the only thing you have to worry about is what you are going to sell on your site! As with 'Business Basics', we deliver all this for one simple monthly payment on a 12 month contract, billed to your nominated card automatically.

Tell us what you want or need, what resources you have (text, images etc.), and where needed we help you fill in the blanks. We will also set up several starter products for you, so you can see how it's done, and give you a full training session on how to run your store.
