Everything you need to run your own online shop.
At Graydian, we used to dread the idea of building an E-Commerce site. But the days of complicated E-Commerce software are long gone. It has never been easier to sell your products online. With Graydian, you have a wide variety of options to choose from. We'll help you pick the right one and start you off on your E-Commerce journey with confidence!
Here are the E-Commerce options we recommend…
For most people, Shopify is the best E-Commerce choice. With a low monthly fee, a wide variety of specialized apps, and a vast array of theming options, Shopify is a great solution. Shopify is a very powerful service that has grown exponentially in recent years. We are certified Shopify experts in shop setup, design and development. See our Shopify Experts Page for more examples of our knowledge in this area.
Shopify POS (Point of Sale) is a great service if you run a brick and mortar store location, multiple store locations, or if you have a mobile business (such as trade shows or festivals). Shopify POS offers a complete cash register-like solution that runs entirely from an iPad, and it integrates perfectly with your Shopify online store.

For a more custom E-Commerce solution, we recommend a WordPress site with WooCommerce. WordPress and WooCommerce make it easy for your regular website content and your online store to co-exist in unique ways. Not quite ready to sell online? No problem. WooCommerce offers a catalog mode that allows a business to add and display products in an eCommerce fashion, while hiding typical E-Commerce site features like a cart and checkout. When you're ready to start selling, turn catalog mode off and you're ready to go!
Stripe is an industry-standard credit card processing gateway. Stripe has some great E-Commerce solutions by itself, but when combined with another service, it can really shine. At Graydian, we love to use the form builders Wufoo and Gravity Forms in combination with Stripe, to put together powerful, custom-designed ordering systems. Stripe is extremely flexible and may just be the solution you're looking for!
