YOUR STORE NEEDS TO BE
AS UNIQUE AS YOUR PRODUCT LINE.
OUR SPECIALTY IS MIVA, WOOCOMMERCE AND MAGENTO.
Let’s build a better online store for your business! Fan & Fuel creates a shopping experience that set our clients’ sites apart from so many dot-coms that are barely average. Our digital strategies find and attract more of the customers you want. We’re experts at fine tuning ad targeting to optimize your budget while extending the reach of your business.
We’ve been developing custom eCommerce stores for more than 15 years. We love to push the design envelope just enough to create a unique shopping experience for your particular customers. Plus, we’re experts in developing secure, scalable, PCI-compliant, and SEO friendly shopping carts. Even better than our eCommerce development skills – the custom designs we are able to build into them. Your online store needs to be unique to your product line and the customers you are trying to attract.
If you have the opportunity to have an eCommerce website we suggest building your storefront on one of the following platforms: MIVA Merchant, WooCommerce, or Magento. Each of these platforms are extremely secure and very easy to maintain and keep up to date. New releases and updates are automatically pushed out to each store from their community of developers, so there is no need to deal with cumbersome software versions and custom code installations.
It’s Critical to have a Store that Grows & Evolves with Your Business.The administration of the daily operations of your eCommerce store, as well as product maintenance, is all done through your eCommerce web-based admin area allowing any staff member to contribute. Miva, for example, is a cart that uses a very efficient template-based design system which allows updates to the site navigation, look-and-feel, and functionality with relative ease. MIVA is also used by many high-volume, high-production web stores that uses a very fast database that is reliable and will grow as big as your company does. Many small businesses start with some smaller, open source systems that they struggle to maintain and customize then, spend all of their time fixing issues rather than focusing on their business. These subscription based carts, or free open source systems, are outgrown quickly and could force you to move your entire operation later on, which could cause additional frustration, expense, and potential downtime.
Part of the flexibility with MIVA Merchant is that it is very modular and allows store owners to install only those options in the store that they require to run their business. So rather than waste valuable development time on removing things you don’t need, you can spend your time building the features you actually want. As the store grows, additional features can be installed and customized. There are hundreds of available modules that provide a wide range of utilities and features to really enhance the store and improve the customer’s shopping experience.
