The relentless march online
£3 of every £10 is now spent online. 50% more than before the pandemic. Ecommerce was already growing substantially.
The pandemic simply accelerated things. New online shoppers were forced to try it. And they liked it. Once habits form, behaviour changes forever. It seems certain more sales will happen online. And not just consumers. Because behind every B2B transaction is a human.

When pretty just isn’t enough
Most design, print and sign businesses have websites. They’re often delightfully pretty, loaded with portfolios of past work. Gleaming shots of shiny machines and impressive plant lists.
But it’s not enough. Clients want to do more. Be honest, when did you last fill in a quote form? It’s easier to find a product and add it to your basket. And so that’s what clients do.
Choosing the right tool for the job
If you sell jam or shoes or cannabis oil or scooters or trombones or fish food, then an off-the-shelf ecommerce platform will work just fine. If you’re selling print, signs, posters, displays or personalised promotional items, it’s best to choose a specialist platform, designed with design in mind.
That’s w3shop by Nettl.
Building a store from scratch is hard
Are you already running an online store? Maybe you’ve listed some products you make in-house. Takes time doesn’t it? Writing sales copy, keeping specifications up-to-date, calculating prices and taking product shots. What a burden. Wouldn’t it be easier if someone did all the merchandising for you? New products automatically listed, as they’re launched. An instant product catalogue, ready-to-start selling. Today.

Build private stores for corporate clients
Print isn’t just sold through public shops. Lots is sold through private portals. If you have clients with multiple teams, departments, branches or franchises, you can set up private shops in their brand style and colours.
With our Template Pack, build online templates, directly from InDesign. Give them access to private templates for their frequently ordered marketing collateral, so they can edit self-service.
Add your own product range
Did we mention our range covers almost every print, sign and display product you can think of? If that’s not enough, you can add more. With our Production Pack, upload products you make in-house or source from other suppliers. They’re listed on your shop, just like other products. Set production paths through your factory and manage steps on a drag’n’drop Kanban dashboard.
