Online sales in the UK have soared since the 90′s when the online shopping experience began to provide an alternative to traditional sales channels. If you sell a product or provide a subscription service then online sales could be as profitable as your offline presence.
In the UK over 40% of people buy at least one product online a week with an average spend of over £70 per item. The total UK online retail spend is predicted to be around £60 billion in 2010 with a 100% increase predicted in the next decade. It’s not a market which can be ignored and it’s a market which can be entered gradually in order to maximise your rate of investment.

Online shop applications
Online shops have been widely developed so there is little point in re-inventing the wheel and developing bespoke shopping systems for most projects. There are a number of very good options when it comes to developing your shop online and we support the majority of them. A few favourites are Magento and WordPress Shopp.
