Netgen creates ecommerce store for Deep South Reptile Rescue

eCommerce Can Help Your Business Online

We are now well into the National Lockdown here in South Africa and restrictions are starting to ease as we go back to business. However, there has been a massive shift towards online shopping as people prefer to stay at home unless they absolutely have to go out.

Thousands of consumers are flocking to their computer screens to do their online shopping. As a business, it’s time for you to adjust to reach all of your customers. An ecommerce site is just what you need to adapt to the new normal.

In order to help businesses make this shift, we developed an easy-to-use ecommerce template. One of our first customers was Steve Meighan, the Venom Man. Meighan has been committed to protecting the snakes within the Southern Peninsula of Cape Town for 20 years. For a while now, he has been selling his merchandise on social media but needed to make a change in order to stay afloat in these challenging times. “This lockdown period has been very difficult for my business as it has for so many others. I was offered a solution to my problem by Grant at Netgen when he offered to build me an ecommerce online shop,” said Meighan.

How easy is it to get an ecommerce on your Website?

Our aim was to make it as easy as possible, which is why we developed a highly customisable, yet simple ecommerce template, to effortlessly take your business to an online platform. Our template is really a plug-and-play outline for you to build your own online shop, and can be setup with your logos, colour scheme, product range and payment options. Your online store can be set up in less than a week.

It is our goal to provide our clients with cost-effective, professional and efficient products that can make your business successful online. Steve Meighan, the Venom Man did exactly that. “The Netgen team started to build an online store for Deep South Reptile Rescue. I am blown away with the level of professionalism and creativity shown by the Netgen team. They built me an online store second to none in under a week!” Additionally, Meighan now has full control over his own site, and can add or delete products, and update information on his site with ease.

How can you get an ecommerce site for your business?

Our template is ready to go. All we need is your company information, your logo and colours, as well as your product listings. We’ll happily set everything up for you and show you how to change things when you need to.

“The site is exactly how I imagined and exactly what I wanted, and it was a pleasure to work with the guys from Netgen. I’m not a tech savvy guy but they made it so easy to understand, navigate and use the shop that I have no problem at all. My clients are happy, and they are all well impressed with the online shop. It really looks fantastic and makes it easy for them to shop and support my brand,” Steve Meighan, the Venom Man.
