eCommerce website design South Melbourne

WebOracle is an eCommerce development and design agency in South Melbourne, Australia.

Clients often come to WebOracle after attempting to build an eCommerce site themselves, realising part-way through that it is an extremely complicated and time-consuming process.

There are so many things to consider when building your eCommerce Website and WebOracle understands it can be very overwhelming. The good news is we are here to guide you through the entire process.

eCommerce web development

One thing to definitely keep in mind when building your eCommerce Website is, you definitely get what you pay for. Licensed platforms such as SquareSpace and Shopify do seem like a great starting point if you are doing this for the first time. However, they can become costly down the track, especially if you are selling lots of products, and not to mention they are very difficult to customise without the help of an experienced Web Developer. This means that if your eCommerce business really takes off, the hidden costs associated with these platforms can become unnecessarily costly. We typically suggest either Magento or WordPress for eCommerce websites, which are cheaper and more versatile in the long run.

What are the best eCommerce Platforms?

WordPress is typically a blogging platform but over time it has grown to have a lot of good eCommerce integrations and is great for smaller eCommerce stores. Contact us to find out more about our WordPress Web Design.

Magento is primarily an eCommerce platform and is designed to support larger online stores. This is typically the platform of choice for bigger brands. Contact us to find out more about our Magento Web Development.

We can also help you if you have an existing store using other platforms such as BigCommerce and Netsuite. Investing in WebOracle to expertly build your eCommerce Website platform that is customised to your specific requirements and showcases your product more effectively is a sound investment.

eCommerce UX Design South Melbourne

We will ensure that your eCommerce Website provides your existing and future customers an on-point unique User Experience that is bespoke and helps promote your product more efficiently. Remember, your eCommerce Website is a store just like any other High Street shop. What you do with its presentation to make it an enjoyable experience is critical to its success. This is why working with WebOracle to help guide you through the process is invaluable to your success.

WebOracle will work with you from start to finish, ensuring you can easily make changes on your eCommerce Website, enjoy local Tech Support when required, and having someone that is based in Melbourne, Australia that you can speak with directly when you need advice or any help.

eCommerce Projects



From 2020 and beyond, focusing on Mobile First eCommerce Web Design is where all good Web Design starts. Gone are the days where your Web Designer will start with a design-focused for Desktop application, and then look to make it a responsive platform. Consumer habits have changed significantly over the last few years, with over 95% of them making their purchase directly on a handset.

Although Desktop eCommerce is still enjoying a healthier spend vs Mobile, it is tipped that good Mobile eCommerce Web Design will play a significant part in changing the shift in spending from Desktop to Mobile over the next three years.


Clean & Simple

Keeping your design clean and simple with a strong Call-To-Action (CTA) has always been a part of great eCommerce Web Design.

Including elements like strong Branding that separates your business from the product will help your buyer remember you when considering their next purchase.



To make your buyers feel welcome, be sure also to personalise your messaging when sending your products. Use great imagery that is unique to your Website and ties in nicely with your branding to provide a great shopping and aesthetic experience.

Striking colours, catchy copy, strong CTAs, and lots of White Space will help guide your buyer to want to make a purchase.



Be unique, and remember that great custom eCommerce Web Design needs strong Brand presence, brilliant copy, fantastic User Experience, well shot photography, and a quick CTAs which will set you apart from all your competition and stick in the minds of your buyers for years to come.

WebOracle will help guide and ensure you receive a unique custom eCommerce Web Development that will set you apart from your competition and help turn your Website into a profitable online business.


No matter how great and unique your Web Design is, it will not attract your buyers if your site isn’t built using best practices when it comes to eCommerce Web Development.

WebOracle will ensure you have all the pages and URL structure correctly titled with proper descriptions in place which is very important and helps match the online buyer with the right product quickly.

Making sure each of your pages has the right amount of content so Google can identify your product and match it with the prospective buyers is part of our eCommerce Web Development practices.

Online marketing your eCommerce website

As your eCommerce Web Developer, WebOracle also has a checklist we follow to ensure your Website gets the best chance possible of being seen before it goes live. Making sure you are also Google Compliant is critical to the success of your new eCommerce Web Development.

Having Google My Business set up correctly, ensuring you have Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics tracking set up will significantly help you get off to a flying start when it comes time to roll up your sleeves and invest in an Online Marketing Campaign such as SEO, Google Ads, or any Social initiatives.

Remember, your Website will not market itself, so you need to have an Online Marketing strategy to be successful in this space.

If you do a simple Google search in your chosen sector, you will find your competition is certainly doing so. The good news is that WebOracle is able to develop the right Online Marketing strategy for you when you are ready.

We can discuss this once your new website is launched, or if you have an existing website that is already live but requires a new site, we will be able to do off-page SEO work to help grow your website’s authority whilst your new site is being built. This will help you rank better in Google when the new site is live.
