Starter e-commerce sites for local businesses

We’re offering small independent businesses the chance to launch their own ecommerce store at a heavily-discounted cost. We want to help you to continue to reach your customers during these challenging times.

Starter e-commerce sites for local businesses

These are pretty challenging times — many of our cherished local businesses are having to adapt rapidly to changing circumstances.

In light of this, we want to help. We’re offering to create a starter e-commerce site for your business, with everything you need to start taking orders online.

This is the perfect solution for local food & drink suppliers looking to get online. This could include, but is not limited to…

  • Butchers
  • Bakeries
  • Fruit, Veg & Grocery Shops
  • Fishmongers
  • Restaurants & Take-aways

For a heavily-discounted fixed price of £2,500 (excl. VAT), we will develop you an online store. This will be based on the hugely popular and capable Shopify platform — with no revenue commission!

Read on to discover more about how we can get your business online...

Our starter e-commerce package for your business will include...

  • Premium Shopify Theme
    • We’ll build your site using a premium Shopify theme, guaranteed to work well with the Shopify platform.
  • Customised to your brand
    • We’ll customise the site to your existing branding — applying your logo, colour scheme and styles.

    • The site will work perfectly whether you’re browsing on a mobile, tablet or laptop/desktop.
  • Up to 25 products set up
    • We’ll set up 25 products for you, and organise them into collections (categories). You can always add more yourself later — with no limits on how many products you sell.
  • Analytics
    • We’ll set up Google Analytics with e-commerce tracking and Facebook Pixel tracking for you, to provide detailed reports on how your online store is performing.
  • Accept all the major payment methods
    • With Shopify Payments, you can accept all the major credit and debit cards including Visa & Mastercard. You can also enable Apple Pay & Google Pay for easy, speedy mobile payments!

    • No ongoing platform costs while you trial Shopify, and only ~£24/mo thereafter (based on the Shopify Basic plan) with no long-term commitments or contracts
  • 24/7 Support
    • Shopify offers excellent 24x7 support for businesses, so you can be sure there will always be someone available to help.

Other Benefits

That's not all...

Completely secure & worry-free

Shopify is a highly-secure platform, with full PCI DSS level 1 Compliance, GDPR compliance and built-in fraud detection/analysis to protect your business. Cardholder data is never revealed and is processed with the highest security.

In addition, your site will be protected by an SSL Certificate for an encrypted connection, as recommended by Google and others.

Fit for growth

Shopify is not only the perfect platform to start your online business, but it is also perfectly scalable and adaptable for growth.

Shopify can handle everything from small order volumes to large stores receiving lots of traffic, and you can be safe knowing that it won’t fall down if your site suddenly gets too busy.

With a rich app marketplace, Shopify integrates with other platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Google Shopping and eBay, so you can reach even more potential customers online.

As a hosted platform, Shopify regularly pushes new improvements to ensure that the hundreds of thousands of stores hosted on the platform are built with industry-leading best practices.

No ongoing commission

Some retailers have flocked to platforms like Deliveroo, Uber Eats or Just Eat to offer their services, and while these platforms can serve as valuable marketplaces in their own right, they also usually come at a cost and are known to take between 10-30% cut of your revenue.

With Shopify, you’ll only pay a flat 2.2% + 20p per transaction credit card processing fee* - the rest is yours to keep and your profits are protected.

Backed by official Shopify partners & 15 years of digital expertise

As an agency, we are official Shopify partners — so you can rest assured in the knowledge that we know all the ins and outs and will be able to fully support you.

During this period, we’ve helped businesses start selling online for the first time, and they’ve seen massive growth and demand for their products as a result.

At Extreme, we have over 15 years of online marketing experience. Our team of 35 specialise in all things digital — search engine optimisation (SEO), pay-per-click advertising (PPC), social media, public relations, content marketing and more. Our friendly bods are always happy to advise on developing your online presence!

Get in touch

We’re only offering this opportunity for a limited period of time at a significantly discounted flat fee of £2,500 +VAT. This is available to a limited number of businesses by application only — drop us a line today and register your interest.

Shopify is also suitable for more complex stores and larger businesses. If you’re looking for more bespoke customisation or more advanced functionality for your store, we’ll be happy to quote based on your requirements.

* Additional transaction fees may apply if you choose to enable PayPal or other alternative payment methods.
