FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which ecommerce stores do you work with?

Popular examples of off-the-shelf platforms that we work with include Magento, Opencart, Lemonstand, WooCommerce and Prestashop. As dedicated ecommerce developers, we also work with a number of other platforms. If yours isn't listed above then it's worth getting in touch with us.

Our experience in cloud ecommerce stores covers Shopify, Lemonstand, Volusion and BigCommerce. Most cloud ecommerce stores offer a developer API which we can hook in to, so contact us if you're on a different platform and we'll let you know how we can help you.

In addition to standard ecommerce platforms, we also work with eBay and can promote and sell your products through Facebook Stores..

Do you only work with open-source ecommerce software? Do you have experience with Windows applications?

We're particularly adept at Linux which means that we mainly work with open-source software. It's also a general preference of ours as an ecommerce agency.

On that basis, we work with a mixture of environments from dedicated servers to cloud platforms, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

If you have a particular ecommerce proposition that's Windows-based then feel free to get in touch. If it's sufficiently interesting we may be keen to help you out.

What languages do you develop in?

The majority of our ecommerce development is in Python, PHP, Javascript and Google Dart. We're experts in all, using them most regularly with MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.

That's far from the extent of our toolkit. We cut our teeth on the likes of C++ and Java and we're constantly evaluating new languages and libraries as they're released.

With ecommerce development it pays to stay ahead of the game. This means that our clients can benefit from the very latest trends and methodologies to really bring their ecommerce store to life.

Do you have experience of Order Management Systems (OMS)?

We have direct experience of integrating ecommerce stores with Linnworks and TradeGecko. Ultimately, any order management system works in a very similar way, by exposing an API to the developer.

Once we have access to the API the internal workings of the OMS are very similar, no matter who the vendor may be. If you use another OMS then it's more than likely that we'll be able to help you with your integration. Just get in touch and we can talk things through.
