Shopping online has never been made easier. Millions of people purchase goods online, and if your business can benefit from the sale, then you may wish to consider investing in an eCommerce website. This is where we can help you.
Freeway Projects specialise in the development and hosting of Magento, one of the most sophisticated eCommerce solution on the market.
The award winning Magento eCommerce platform is professional, flexible and secure, as well as feature rich and expandable. It has unlimited products and enables our clients to quickly manage and retrieve up-to-date information regarding their customers and orders, via a user friendly management system.
Magento offers many great features but on top of that, it gives our clients ownership of their site. This means they can build on it when they want to, take it to be hosted elsewhere if they wish, and add on pretty much any extension available (and there are many!).
Magento is also open source, which means there is no high license fee involved, and makes the your eCommerce website affordable. For example, we offer a start up package at £249 + VAT per year.
