Our multidisciplinary development team draws on decades of experience to help businesses achieve measurable returns from their digital investment, and act as strategic partners to an international roster of clients from our headquarters in the capital of Wales, offices in central London, and on-site as part of embedded teams.
As WooCommerce experts, and the development agency behind the largest ever instance of WooCommerce for the enterprise, Box UK has unique expertise when it comes to large-scale implementations of this popular and far-reaching ecommerce platform.
Built upon a strong and robust open source framework, WooCommerce was created from the ground up with customisation in mind – and as a result our expert developers are able to modify and scale your enterprise sales platforms without restriction, as well as integrate them with virtually any other service in your ecommerce ecosystem.
Where others might work with both small and large installations of these technologies, we work exclusively with the enterprise – and liaise closely with WordPress and WooCommerce themselves to leverage the full potential of this powerful combination at the scale you require.
WooCommerce works whether you’re B2B or B2C, and Box UK has long-standing development experience with both. Working with you from the outset to understand your business and its offer, we’ll deliver an ecommerce environment that:
Given its relationship to the world’s most popular content management system WordPress, WooCommerce of course seamlessly integrates commerce with content and gives you endless flexibility when it comes to exposing content within inventory, and inventory within content.
Payments are easy with inbuilt support for all major credit cards, PayPal, BACS and cash on delivery, plus 140 region-specific gateways such as Stripe, Authorize.Net and Amazon Payments.
Furthermore, with its REST API, custom AJAX endpoints and webhooks there’s the potential to integrate your ecommerce functionality with that of any other of your business systems – automating payment gateways, customer communications, logistical services, ERP, POS, tax management and more.
All of WordPress’s plugins are available to your WooCommerce site, and there are endless dedicated extensions available too – from Avalara to FedEx, Mailchimp to Zapier.
Plus, where you have a specific need not served by existing plugins or extensions, our experts will develop something custom to you – underpinning this with leading coding standards, a best practice approach to development, peer review, and automated testing and deployment processes.
All WooCommerce code is audited and secure, and our agency partnership with WordPress VIP will guarantee your site 24/7 operational support, hourly backups, automatic vulnerability scans and security updates. What’s more, as an ISO 27001:2013-accredited supplier, Box UK’s processes are certified as having met the high information security standards set by global standards organisation, ISO – so you can trust in our handling of both your development, and data.
Running seven country sites in six languages from a single installation, OKdo.com is a feature-rich, widely-integrated technology ecosystem that serves as a flagship example of enterprise WordPress and WooCommerce.

Box UK’s multidisciplinary team of consultants, designers and developers draw on a wealth of cross-sector experience to deliver you an ecommerce platform that meets and exceeds both technical standards and customer expectations. Sector-specific experience includes:
Extendable, adaptable, scalable and eminently customisable, WooCommerce is the open source ecommerce platform for WordPress that today powers 20% of the world’s top 1 million online stores. Through WooCommerce, a complete online shop can be added to any WordPress installation, with an active marketplace of extensions, plugins and API integrations offering further valuable functionality.
Online retailers can leverage WooCommerce’s extensive feature set to easily manage the full ecommerce lifecycle, including setting up product lines and custom taxonomies, providing a wide range of payment methods, and coordinating order management and fulfilment. The ecommerce platform also supports multi-lingual and multi-currency offerings, to grow international reach and engagement.
As the ecommerce partner to WordPress VIP – the fully-managed, enterprise WordPress offering from Automattic – WooCommerce is ideal for organisations of any scale that are looking to build out their online retail proposition. Current WooCommerce clients include leading brand names from across the globe, including Aeropress, Weber, Singer, Dr Scholl’s and our own clients OKdo and RS Components.
Its high levels of customisation across content, functionality and appearance enable it to be tailored to suit the specific needs of different industries, audiences and geographical regions, across physical and digital products and both B2B and B2C markets.
Building on WordPress VIP also brings with it all the benefits of this powerful and flexible platform, including blazing-fast performance, enhanced security, and a comprehensive customer service offering to safeguard the availability and stability of your online store.
A key feature of WooCommerce is its ease-of-use, integrating seamlessly with WordPress and providing a suite of readily-available Gutenberg blocks to enable organisations to rapidly launch a high-quality ecommerce offering. It also supports popular payment methods including major credit cards, bank transfers, cheques, and cash on delivery as standard, with over 140 additional channels available to integrate including Stripe, PayPal, Square, and Amazon Pay.
By partnering with an experienced WooCommerce development agency, retailers can further expand and enhance their platform with a range of product types including physical and digital items, subscriptions, bundles and even appointments. Your WooCommerce partner can also help you integrate additional features and functionality from a large and active marketplace – another key feature of WooCommerce – ranging from analytics and marketing capabilities to multichannel and point of sale extensions.
WooCommerce is inherently scalable, able to support product ranges running to tens of thousands of SKUs and millions of orders a day. It also integrates with some of the world’s largest shipping and delivery companies including FedEx, USPS and Amazon Fulfilment, to ensure your products reach customers wherever they are across the globe.
WooCommerce is also built with international ecommerce considerations in mind, to support increased reach and geographical targeting. Working together with WordPress, translations across a wide variety of languages can be managed with ease, and product prices can be displayed in a user’s relevant currency to streamline the purchase process.
At Box UK we’re also highly skilled in integrating complex back-office integrations into WordPress and WooCommerce installations, including tax and compliance engines that enable you to adhere to any region-specific requirements when selling your goods.
WooCommerce provides all the features and functionality online retailers need to deliver an intuitive and enjoyable shopping experience, whether they are extending their physical offering to digital channels or migrating an existing ecommerce platform to support continued growth and diversification.
WooCommerce also offers all the advantages of open source software, giving you access to a wide pool of knowledge and expertise when building and maintaining your WooCommerce installation. The open source nature of WooCommerce also powers its marketplace of plugins and extensions, which can help minimise custom development costs.
As it’s built on WordPress, the most popular content management system in the world, you also benefit from a familiar and proven back-end interface, speeding up onboarding and helping to reduce administration costs.
To ensure that your WooCommerce development project delivers you a platform that can effectively serve your goals, it’s important to gather key business requirements at the outset. This will inform a robust development roadmap that details key features, functionality and milestones, to support effective planning and testing activities.
If you choose to work with a WooCommerce development agency such as Box UK, you can be confident that every step of the development process will adhere to industry best practice and effective testing processes, supporting fast, frequent and quality deployments.
As an enterprise ecommerce partner we will also ensure that all development is underpinned by the appropriate architecture to manage the end-to-end purchase lifecycle. We’ll help coordinate your full ecommerce ecosystem, integrating key systems such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Product Inventory Management (PIM) and Third Party Logistics (3PL) solutions, as well as any necessary marketing systems, analytics products and transactional email service providers.
As an open source solution WooCommerce has no additional licensing costs and there is no fee on any transaction costs beyond that of the service provider, making it a highly cost-effective ecommerce solution.
WooCommerce can be added quickly and easily to any WordPress site you’re currently managing, and for enterprise ecommerce platforms that may have a significant degree of additional complexity it’s recommended that you work with an experienced WooCommerce developer to ensure your solution is robust and fit-for-purpose.
At the outset of any engagement we will work closely with you to understand your specific requirements in order to provide a confident estimate of project size, and to mitigate any potential risk to delivery.
