Ekmpowershop or any other UK based platforms?
8 Mar 2015
Hello,

I started my business last summer after 10 years of procrastination. My business is selling unique Swimwear and Lingerie (not quit the day job yet).

Unfortunately I was conned out of £950.00 for two websites so I had to quickly get it up and running with ekmPowershop. I do love the ease in using this platform but it is limited, looked at Shopify but I feel it is too expensive due to the fees they charge for using a 3rd party merchant.

Eventually I would love to have my site built using maybe Magento, has anyone used ekmpowershop or are there any other UK based platforms out there that are any good?

My site is allaboutunderwear.com. I would love feedback on the design.

Many Thanks
Anita

Hi,

We use EKM for three years and then changed to Dialawebsite two years ago and found them great. www.dialawebsite.co.uk/ Much less money. They even design the website for you, to your design. Integrated newsletters and all. Customer service is great, by email or phone, Well worth a look.

Hi

Just had a look at your site, nice clear lines, but the design I think could be improved on. You do not offer 1st Class Mail on your shipping. We find that although we offer 2nd class mail, most will opt for 1st Class to get the order quicker. We sell Makeup and Cosmetics, so same type of customers.

Hi,

Many Thanks for reviewing the site. Good tip about the shipping, I will take a look at the eCommerce platform you suggested. I do love my site, the idea is to keep it as clean and user friendly as possible, some of the templates on ekm are a bit clunky and as I said before they do not offer the newsletter as standard.

Eventually I will aim to have the site built with Magento.

Thanks
