ECOMMERCE WEBSITES

Want to boost sales while giving your customers a better shopping experience? Of course you do! Using a powerful combination of bespoke design, a kick-ass eCommerce platform and targeted digital marketing, we’ll make it happen.

WooCommerce puts the ‘woo-hoo!’ into online shopping

Cognique love WooCommerce. This small WordPress plugin delivers a massive open source, eCommerce punch. We’re fans because it gives us the freedom to be bespoke, inventive and creative. Which means you get precisely the eCommerce platform you need to drive your online sales. An ‘off-the-shelf’ shopping system or a proprietary CMS may get your business off the ground, but an eCommerce website from Cognique will send it into orbit.

Unlimited Products

WooCommerce is a highly scalable, efficient and lightweight eCommerce plugin for WordPress. It can handle anything from a single product to thousands of products. Quickly add products to your shop with an easy to use and intuitive web interface.

Unlimited Attributes

Attributes allow your products to be filtered with ease and provide customers with a clear area to view technical specifications. Would your shop benefit from a size filter? If so, just tag the relevant sizes to each product and WooCommerce will take care of the rest.

Unlimited Variations

Selling products in different sizes, colours or styles? WooCommerce allows you to create a set of variable products with ease. Grouping similar products together under one core product will save you time and make your shop easier to manage.

Image Galleries

A picture tells a thousand words, so don’t be held back by a solution which allows only a single product image. With WooCommerce you can have an unlimited number of images for each product. Each one can be viewed quickly using the built in slideshow which is mobile and tablet friendly.

Simple Delivery

WooCommerce delivery methods set up is quick and easy. Create delivery zones, filter by country or postcode and specify rules for each zone. Calculate delivery by price, weight or item count. Offer free delivery over a fixed price, or up-sell next day delivery at an additional price.

Discount Codes

Reward your loyal customers with fixed or percentage shopping basket discounts. Limit the voucher codes to a certain day or week, allow it to be used once per customer, exclude sales products, or only grant free delivery.

Product Reviews

75% of online shoppers read reviews before making a purchase. This helps them make an informed decision and cuts down on the amount of product returns. WooCommerce allows every product to be reviewable gaining a star rating on your website and in search engines.

PDF Invoicing

Don’t make do with plain email invoices. Look the business and attach a copy of a professionally formatted PDF invoice to all order emails. Customers can login to their account and download previous invoices and admins can resend copies on request.

Multiple Integrations

Cut down on extra development costs by utilising the WooCommerce plugin library. Need to take payments with Stripe? New order emails automatically adding to MailChimp? Or the ability to import and export by spreadsheet, WooCommerce does it all.

Custom Functionality

Need a ‘Quick Order’ system for existing online customers? Or maybe a different pricing structure for Trade Customers? If your eCommerce website needs additional functionality that’s not ‘off-the-shelf’, we’re happy to oblige.

People leaving your website straight away is bad news. There’s never a time where you’d want someone to leave your website, but now it’s more important than ever thanks (or no thanks) to Google’s RankBrain.

If someone does this, it’s a sign that your website didn’t satisfy them, and it’s likely Google wi...
