Get your tech on!

Whether you have an existing e-commerce store that is struggling to deliver the results you would expect, you are in the process of developing a new and exciting project, or you have an existing store for migration to a new and improved platform, choosing the right e-commerce web design agency is the first step on the road to success.

Can we help your brand deliver a better e-commerce experience?

E-commerce Website Design

Evolution E-commerce is a market leader when it comes to e-commerce development services UK. We have built a solid team of expert e-commerce web designers and e-commerce web developers to tackle the added complexities of developing a high-functioning e-commerce presence which has visual impact and delivers results.

After all, an e-commerce site is representing you, your products and your services, and marketing directly to your potential customer base. Your success and continued web e-commerce development does not depend on the products alone. It will stand or fall on the quality of your website, how the user experiences it, and how well your platform functions.

Our e-commerce development services can give your project that essential boost, no matter what stage you are at in the development process.

E-commerce Development

The success of an e-commerce development company is down to our dedicated team of experts. We have cutting-edge PHP coders, Magento-certified developers, Shopify experts and WordPress technicians, all with a passion for pure, performance-driven e-commerce.

Making sure that we have a full understanding of what you already have in place and your e-commerce website development needs, means that we can produce a clear roadmap for how to get you there.

Working closely with you, our experts can provide an extensive audit and strategy consultancy. We can come in on the ground floor of a project or step in to help existing e-commerce businesses increase revenue through improved performance.

Designers & Developers

We have e-commerce website designers and developers ready with the expertise to boost any project or build at any stage, examining the customer experience as they move through different stages of the purchasing process. We can implement a conversion rate optimisation (CRO) strategy aimed at gaining a holistic view of your customers and converting website visitors to actual sales, or build an effective customer relationship management system (CRM) that nurtures your ongoing customer relationships.

From website usability through to payment systems integration and even extensive ongoing support and training for your own staff, Evolution E-commerce can walk alongside you every step of the way as you reach for and attain your e-commerce objectives.

Performance tuning

Our team is driven by technical performance. We use advanced analytical processes to identify developments that can improve the user experience on your e-commerce store. We search for opportunities to customise server-side and back-end coding for improved website performance. We’ll audit the speed and efficiency of your web hosting and identify opportunities to deliver a smoother and faster user experience.

Our aim is to elevate as many of the individual metrics that contribute to your Google Lighthouse performance score as possible, and have it flying high in no time.

Your Google Lighthouse performance score is one of the best ways to judge whether or not your website is delivering a user experience that encourages customers to move from the first visit through to checkout without abandoning at any point in the process.

The Multi-Platform Approach to E-Commerce

With exciting and innovative e-commerce web design and e-commerce web development, we can begin to lay a future-proof development foundation designed to make your e-commerce business stand out from the crowd.

We take a multi-platform approach to e-commerce development that allows us to find the solutions that work best for your requirements. Our e-commerce web development experts and PHP coders regularly create custom e-commerce web designs across platforms including:

A recent report highlighted the fact that in many cases, seven out of ten potential customers will leave an e-commerce store without purchasing because they have a perception that the website is indifferent to them. Our aim is to choose and develop an e-commerce solution that absorbs the consumer and propels them smoothly into a purchasing decision.

Platform Migrations

Migrating to a more suitable platform is the answer to many of the issues and bottlenecks experienced by our customers. Migration often opens up new business opportunities and provides the means to substantially improve many of the performance metrics that drive an e-commerce site forwards.

Platform migration with no loss of data and without affecting traffic to your website is not for the faint-hearted. After many years of experience, and with a technically gifted team in place, we have platform migration down to a fine art.

Migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2 now that Magento 1 is no longer supported has become one of our most frequently requested services.

We have also carried out many other migrations including a few to Shopify. Migrating to Shopify from another platform is best left to the experts, and this is where an e-commerce development agency like Evolution comes into its own.

Getting the Tech Right

We are experts in PHP-based e-commerce platforms. We combine best-in-class prebuilt solutions with a pinch of bespoke customisation, giving your business peace of mind and technical flexibility.

One size never fits all and there are some excellent prebuilt e-commerce solutions that range from totally free right up to very expensive. Most of them are built on PHP which is generally accepted as the programming language of choice for e-commerce. With PHP, you get the ability to build a responsive e-commerce solution that provides several benefits, including:


High levels of automation, making your income as passive as possible


The ability to seamlessly integrate multiple payment options and develop a smooth shopping cart experience that minimises abandonment

Ad Tracking

Building ad tracking and user experience monitoring systems

Graphical User Interfaces

Creation of front-end Graphical User Interfaces (GUI)


Customisation options through code tweaks and additions

User Management

Easy user account creation, access restriction and user management


Our initial audit will identify which e-commerce platform is going to best meet your needs. But why stop there when some custom front-end development and some inspired back-end code tweaking can raise your site to the next level and create a unique and user-friendly experience for your customers?

E-commerce integrations

As a vastly experienced e-commerce development company, our development team here at Evolution has been responsible for performing literally hundreds of integrations across the full spectrum of e-commerce platforms.

Whether it’s syncing your Amazon and eBay stores with Magento, or integrating your existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems into Shopify, we can help. Thinking of building a Customer Relationship Management system (CRM) into an e-commerce store to maximise email strategies and pull together all of the other tools you use to find and retain customers? We’ve been there and integrated it, and we can do it for you.


Amazon is every e-commerce store’s competition nowadays, so if you can’t beat them, join them! Amazon integration for e-commerce is almost mandatory for anyone wishing to build a successful e-commerce project. We can find solutions that allow the integration of your e-commerce platform with Amazon so that more customers can find you.


Whether you started out on eBay, want to add eBay in, or want to streamline your selling channels into one place for easier management, we’ve got you with our experience in eBay integrations.


SagePay is often integral to your business back office, so we can integrate it as your preferred payment gateway. Let’s keep Accounts happy, eh?!


We’re Hubspot partners and have integrated many an e-commerce site with this powerful CRM platform.

Support SLAs

Online retail needs to run 24/7 and e-commerce is a complex business. That’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive range of Service Level Agreements that provide top-flight ongoing support to our clients. We’ll keep your store running so you don’t lose vital sales.

E-commerce is never static. If you are not gaining ground, the chances are you are losing it. And even as you gain ground, there are development issues and challenges that need to be dealt with. We make sure that your e-commerce website is nimble enough to take advantage of, rather than get muted by increasing visitor statistics and visitor retention.

Taking on one of our Service Level Agreements means that we will work with you to stay on top of the future development needs of your site and be on hand to iron out the day-to-day issues that expanding websites experience as they grow.

We can also provide extensive training and support on all major e-commerce platforms to make sure you always get the most out of your store. The more proficient you are, the less you need us.

Etail Grade Hosting

Over the years we’ve worked with many hosting providers, some brilliant, some not so much. We know what we are looking for and have a few trusted hosting partners that we know can provide an awesome hosting service fine-tuned to your requirements.

A hosting plan needs to be able to keep up with your site. It needs to be future-proof with an ability to accommodate your site, its traffic, and its technical requirements both now and as your site grows. We look for:

  • Site speed
  • Site security
  • Scalability
  • Uptime
  • Responsive support

We work closely with these hard-found partners to provide e-commerce hosting that’s guaranteed to perform to the highest standard.

Whether you’re looking to move from a custom e-commerce platform, or you just don't feel like the one you're on is right for your business, our experts will provide extensive audit and strategy consultancy to make sure you move on to the platform that's just right for you.
