In 2020, demand for eCommerce exceeded all expectations. An unexpected and devastating global pandemic forced hundreds of millions indoors, and with shops shut in many countries and regions, consumer trends to shop online increased dramatically.
Some businesses were able to capitalise on this sudden shift in consumer habits straight away. With eCommerce websites up and running, retailers could keep selling online, or switch to predominantly online selling if physical shops needed to close.

Whether you are an established business and want to add an online channel, or a completely new business and eCommerce is your primary sales channel, it’s useful to know what it costs to have a custom website developed.
