What is eCommerce development

eCommerce web development is the process of building and designing an eCommerce website where consumers can purchase products online.

Because eCommerce websites are so popular with consumers, developing an eCommerce website can help you generate more conversions and revenue for your business.

An eCommerce web developer’s primary responsibility is to make the design prototype of a website come to life and overall function as a website. In other words, web development involves making the design of a website function as it should.

For example, a web developer would ensure that any navigational buttons, contact forms, calls to action (CTAs) buttons, and hyperlinks function as they should.

We needed a new redesign for our website to keep our online presence active. The &Elements team came into our offices, and we worked together on the requirements for the new website. A few days later, they came back with the design prototype, which after we approved we got our site up and running a couple of weeks later and it even works on mobiles now. Thanks guys!

Ex-CTO of BT

There is nothing like a change of career for creating a tidal wave of disruption; and after decades of leading industry, I was ready for a change. This needed capable hands and minds, but serendipitously, I met Element Softworks! After working with them over 2 months we created my new brand and website. Luke and his team are the best I have ever worked with, and therefore come with my full support and highest recommendation.
