E-commerce Website Design

Helping grow your business from the start

Digital Lime Green offers expertise and support in making your eCommerce website simplified, attractive, and functional – all uniquely personalised according to your business needs. Your e-commerce website design matters if you want to improve engagement and conversion rate. With our enriched experience, we feel qualified and confident in assisting you with designing your e-commerce website. We shall apply all the best practices related to the design such as an attractive, simple, product/service-oriented layout, improved functionality, and relevant, attractive images or videos and more. Take a look at some of our works here.

Your e-commerce website allows user to interact, browse, and purchase or sell goods and services electronically. The purpose behind an eCommerce website should focus on encouraging the visitor to interact with your business and make a transaction. Your website revenue is directly proportional to the conversion rate. Conversion rate refers to the percentage of visitors who would complete a desired action on your website.

Poor design refers to the unnecessary banners, distractive advertisements on your e-commerce website, unnecessary animated flashy text or images, and unnecessary and irritating pop-ups. This ruins a visitor’s experience by diverting their attention from the actual product or the service they potentially want to consider purchasing from you. We will ensure that such mistakes are avoided and corrected whenever necessary, maintaining the design well-focused on your products and services.

“While the goal of such a (e-commerce) business model is to market their products/services and maximise profit/shareholder value by allowing transactions online with another party, organisations that incorporate such technologies still need to have a sense of what proportion of their business will be online, their target audience, their value proposition, and most importantly, the path for delivering maximum customer value (Krishnamurthy 2003).”)

There is no common or ideal type of e-commerce website design. You may let your creativity on the loose as you consider a personalised and unique design approach that matches your brand, the logo (especially in terms of the colour scheme), and the products and services you are aiming to offer. We will also focus on responsive design for your website, making it easier to access from any platform.

Conversion Rates

Your e-commerce website design is extremely crucial in improving your overall conversion rates. Digital Lime Green understands website design trend and the psyche behind a customer’s interaction with an e-commerce website. Take advantage of our expertise at a fair, competitive market price; improve your revenue, and grow your e-commerce website to a new height!

Conversion refers to those visitors who visit your website and make a Call-to-Action (CTA) decision. Conversation rate compares the ratio between visitors who just browse your website v/s the visitors who make an actual Call-to-Action decision, whether it is about buying your services or products. These conversions are important, as they directly affect your digital revenue.

Various factors affect conversion rates. But two most commonly known factors are e-commerce website design and responsive layout. The e-commerce website design has to be simple, straight to the point, and attractive enough to engage customers into considering your services. Responsive layout is related to the functionality of your website and the loading times. We can assist you to improve these factors to increase the overall conversion rate. Contact us for more information today!

payment gateway

Payment Gateway

One of the most important aspects of running a successful e-commerce business is having a secure, convenient payment gateway. Digital Lime Green offers you the best gateway choices in South Africa such as Yoco, Finteq, and so on.

WooCommerce has plenty of payment gateway extensions. Choosing the right payment gateway matters as not every gateway may be available in all countries. PayFast and PeachPay are the two most popular gateway options in South Africa, allowing users to make hassle-free payments with just a few clicks. You do not need a medium like a credit card to make payments through these portals. Both extensions are available for WooCommerce. We’ll collaborate with the gateway providers to ensure that your payment service stays running 24/7.

Furthermore, Digital Lime Green can also help you manage all the payment gateways on your website. Our experts will help you manage the security and integrity of your e-commerce website and connection with the payment gateway so you can conduct your business without worrying about receiving payments. Contact us to know about how we can manage the payment methods!

Shipping

Every e-commerce business needs a shipping partner to actually deliver its products to the customers. Digital Lime Green will assist you in setting up your e-commerce website with shipping partners in South Africa such as TheCourierGuy and Collivery. A fast and affordable shipping method can help your customers purchase products with ease and reduces the cart abandonment rate.

Customers prefer reasonably fast and affordable shipping of the products they have purchased. Although products are often shipped with affordable shipping charges, some customers are also willing to pay more for faster delivery of their products. Whether you want to provide a particular shipping method, or any shipping method at all completely depends on the type of e-commerce business you are running. For example, any digital products such as music albums, movies, video games, e-books etc. do not require any physical shipping method.

Integrating express shipping and/or international shipping depends on your budgets and the audience. For example, a business that rarely gets orders internationally may not want to consider setting up an international shipping gateway on their e-commerce business. We can help you understand the right shipping methods for your e-commerce website.

Cart Abandonment Recovery

Digital Lime Green can help you set up a Cart Abandonment Recovery system for your e-commerce website with ease. We will assist you in reducing the cart abandonment rate well as designing the email template to be used by the system in these situations.

Cart Abandonment Recovery is a system that comes into play when a customer puts some items in the cart but doesn’t proceed with payment, for whatever reasons it may be. At such times, this system sends that particular customer a reminder through their email, telling them about the specific transaction they had initiated, but never got finished.

Cart Abandonment Recovery is an important mechanism in successfully running your e-commerce website, especially in the terms of maintaining warm customer relations. Knowing that the company cares about your interactions on their website, a customer feels good about the company trying to reach and remind them. It is possible that the customer might have abandoned the transaction just because they forgot or had an emergency. This system allows them to finish their transaction at their own convenience. See how that helps in getting your conversion rate up? Contact us to know more about this today!

Creating a Facebook Shop is free. Facebook also allows integration of your products from your e-commerce website to Instagram, making it a highly convenient tool as these two social websites are the most popular across the globe, including South Africa. Contact us to know more about this process!

Customer Attitudes

We believe that a customer’s attitude depends on their first impression of your e-commerce website. The average time of engagement on your website has a direct impact on your conversion rate. With our expertise, you will observe the improvement in the average engagement time on your website.

Customer or Consumer Attitude refers to the psychological reaction a customer shows the moment they visit your website. Their first impression majorly depends on how your website looks overall.  Sleek, modern, yet simple design, absence of intrusive banners, popups, simplified display of your products and company profile are some good features of an e-commerce website. With the right extensions and proper placements, your e-commerce website is going to form a good impression in no time.

Aesthetically pleasing e-commerce websites and well-structured information help in establishing the credibility of your products. It shows that the business really cares about its representation. Psychologically, that plays an important factor. Such customers are likely to engage longer with your website and potentially make a Call-to-Action (CTA) decision which refers to customers interacting with your e-commerce website willingly and buying your services, or products. Contact us to know more about how you can understand and achieve better revenue!
