Custom e-Commerce Website Development: Reflect Your Business Goals with Bespoke Solution
Pre–made solutions offered by popular platforms are very convenient — they’re cost–effective, easy to set up and maintain, as well as scalable. But these benefits come with a cost; the offered solutions are rather universal in order to suit many industries and business models, making it difficult to stand out and implement complex, innovative features, truly creative UX/UI designs, or integrations that answer your clients’ needs.
And as your business grows, changes are inevitable. If you want to stay relevant in the world of online e-Commerce and target more audiences, you need to offer unique value propositions that give you a competitive edge. And you can’t comfortably show off your unique side with generic e-Commerce platforms — you need to step up the game and invest in a custom e-Commerce solution instead.
I have worked with many website creators in the past, all whom I have had to part ways with. As none of them were able to implement my designs and vision for SHANE.
Why Should You Invest in a Bespoke e-Commerce Platform?

MPC: Delivering Excellent Custom e-Commerce Development Since 2012
Outsourcing your e-Commerce development services helps you save time, money, and sanity. Leave it to the experts to handle the most difficult tasks that require years of experience, resources, and knowledge — all of which we’re proud to have.
While our domain is technology, we also know a thing or two about business — from our own experience, no less. We’re aware that these two things need to go hand–in–hand and that all decisions need to be carefully considered from many different perspectives. That’s why our first priority is to get to know our client’s company in–depth in order to propose the best solutions.
Straightforward & Effective, Flexible Processes
We’re not fans of pointless bureaucracy or prolonged processes just for the sake of it. Instead, we’re straight to the point and focused on taking action rather than holding endless meetings that bring nothing new to the table. Because of that, we can pivot and adapt in no time at all, quickly reacting to new circumstances.
Risk Assessment & Thorough Testing
Since software development is more often than not an unpredictable roller coaster ride, risk assessment is a necessity we never neglect. In order to avoid any unpleasant surprises, we go through all possible scenarios to foresee any problems. Additionally, we start testing as soon as possible to make sure that each element works as expected. Better safe than sorry!
To have a clear understanding of the situation at all times, we encourage honest, direct communication to avoid any misunderstandings or even conflicts. We do the same with our clients — by holding meetings at the frequency of their choosing and giving access to our tools (like Slack or Jira) we promote full transparency and increase trust.
We Thrive On Feedback
No matter the title or job seniority, everyone is encouraged to speak their minds and share their unique insight that comes from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and characters. Only this way can we truly grow, learn from our mistakes, and face new challenges.
Passion for Learning
We’re all diehard enthusiasts that love the work we do. Our drive to improve with each completed project makes us follow the industry’s news avidly, incorporate recommended best practices, and propose innovative, creative solutions that come from the need to always surpass expectations — both the client’s and our own.
e-Commerce Development Process With Massive Pixel Creation
Support & Maintenance
Sales, Solution Architect
Regardless of how advanced your idea and your goal is, our team will help you shape the product’s scope and its specifications. This will give both sides a better perception of the solution and set a clear path towards the final outcome.
Outcome: a chiseled, sharp idea that meets the current market needs.
Project Manager, Product Designer, Solution Architect, Software Developer
The goal of a personalized product workshop is to develop the idea even further, build a roadmap for the product, and create wireframes and canvas for the development team. Massive Pixel Creation relies on a mix of trusted methods to make sure everyone stays on the same page. We also use tools such as Value Proposition Canvas to take the product to the highest level, business-wise.
Outcome: a detailed wireframe of the final product.
Project Manager, Product Designer, Software Developer, QA
Usually, we start a setup sprint while the design team works on the visual aspect of the product. This is done to bypass potential holdups at a later stage and to cut down on redundant work: the design team has time to work on visuals that developers will base on, while the tech team can set up the necessary environment and infrastructure. At this point, we will also meet you for the first refinement and agree on the technical scope for the product.
Outcome: the visual side of the product’s core + the environment ready for future development.
Project Manager, Product Designer, Software Developer, QA
as defined in the contract
Your project is now at full speed and you should feel right in the middle of it. Massive Pixel Creation teams use scrum processes to ensure transparency. Daily meetings, updates, and reviews keep you in the loop, and you’re free to reach your development team via Slack or a call anytime you wish to. Each period of work, called sprint, ends with a release to staging or production – this way, you’ll see how your product grows.
Outcome: the complete, working product.
When your product goes live, the development team will decrease and regroup to focus on new challenges. We’ll take some time to observe how actual users interact with the product and look for things to fix or improve.
Outcome: a stable environment that supports the current traffic.
Support & Maintenance
Upon request, MPC offers extra support and product maintenance after the stabilization stage. If needed, this stage might be the step towards future development.
Outcome: a breakdown-proof product.

Frequently Asked Questions
In case it’s your first time dealing with custom e-Commerce development services and design, read these frequently asked questions to learn all the most important bits about this technology. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
A custom e-Commerce solution is best for niche businesses that require rich and custom features and integrations, or those that have unusual business needs. It’s also suitable for big companies that have outgrown web builders’ bandwidth limits and feel restricted by the web builder’s offered functionalities.
There are many cheap web builders on the market created with non–tech people in mind. These drag–and–drop sites are easy to set up and maintain, but there are many limitations when it comes to design, features, integrations, and so on, resulting in average–looking websites
Shopify is an excellent solution for those who need to get their online stores up and running fast and have a humble budget. On the other hand, custom e-Commerce solutions are better for bigger businesses which need unique features, the capability to handle huge traffic, and truly memorable UX/UI design experience that makes the brand stand out from the competition.
A good e-Commerce website needs a user–friendly interface with easy navigation, shopping cart and frictionless checkout process. It also should have many safety measures set in place, like the SSL certificate and secure payment gateways. For better accessibility, it should have a proper loading speed and be fully responsive, especially on mobile devices. But to be found in the first place, it needs to be SEO–friendly.
Depending on the scope and requirements, a custom e–Commerce platform can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $1,000,000 or even more. It’s impossible to narrow the range any further, since each customized eCommerce platform is a completely different project with varied features. When it comes to hourly rates, the average in MPC is $50. You can see how that compares to global rates in this article on Software Outsourcing Costs.
