We love e-commerce projects. They tend to bring all of our favourite topics together: good design, fancy custom programming, and search engine optimization. Our favourite aspect of e-commerce is the obvious and easy to measure return on investment. When we build an awesome and search engine optimized e-commerce site for a client, we know they're going to see a huge return on that investment, and we love watching their sales grow every month in Google Analytics.
We don't use open source shopping cart systems like Magento, OSCommerce, or ZenCart, and we won't. Ever. We think those systems are slow, ugly, and extremely limiting. We custom program every e-commerce site we do, because that gives us 100% freedom to design and build however is required to best meet your goals.
We have plenty of experience integrating with various payment processing systems. We've integrated sites with Moneris, Beanstream, Paypal, and SagePay. We'll be happy to guide you through the process of selecting and applying for an internet merchant account with any of these providers.
