Mobile ResponsiveBeautiful websites built to work on all devices with an optimised user-experience as part of our core.
Retina ReadyHiDPi crisp perfect product images will make your store stand out on hi-resolution devices.
Unrivalled SpeedOur websites typically load in about 0.5s which is in the top 1-3% of the world and are unrivalled by any e-commerce solution we have found. So you can be confident that your customers will get the fastest possible website experience available today. Nobody likes a slow website!
Social Media + MicrodataOur websites are heavily optimised for social media sharing; your products and pages will look stunning on the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and many more. Backing this up we have Rich Snippets which describe your products and pages for display on sites like Google shopping.
Superior Search AccuracyTypical e-commerce solutions use outdated technology to power their searching which results in inaccurate search results. We use the very latest and best technology stack to deliver the right results to your customer.
Search SuggestionsSometimes your customers misspell a word or product, not to worry, we have it in hand. Our predictive searching allows for word similarities when searching and if the system is still not sure then it presents the customer with a list of products and alternative spellings, just like Google's very own "Did you mean?"
Product FiltersOur product filtering is second to none. We utilise the very latest bleeding edge technology to allow your customers to filter down their results quickly and efficiently, which, in turn boosts conversions.
UK Address LookupOur solutions come with UK postcode-based address lookup as standard. Most other systems will charge you a steep integration fee plus a costly monthly recurring fee for this.
Product categoriesCategorise your products with a definitive and logical hierarchy for your customers.
Credit card processingWe integrate with all modern payment providers to allow you flexibility with your payment processor.
Paypal processingIntegration with the world's foremost digital wallet.
HTTP2/HTTPSNodex e-commerce websites come with HTTP2 as standard. HTTP2 is the latest evolution in the http protocol which allows for a more efficient transfer of data between the server and your customers.

Out of the box comparison
Below is a comparison of features and functions for the Nodex Ecommerce platform VS the most popular alternative choices. The information was comprised by creating instances of the various platforms where needed and testing the out of the box functionality. In the case of Magento 2 we gave up installing it after 6 hours trying to get it to run on the recommended specs with the sample data provided by Magento, instead, we opted for a demo supplied by a third party Magento development consultancy, this allowed us to explore both the front and backend of an installation with the sample data. It has to be noted that the demo supplied ran on quite expensive hardware in comparison to the other software we tested.
We treat "out of the box" as how the system comes after running the installer, therefore if there are missing functions / pages we apologise, you may raise your concerns to the various software maintainers via their own websites. If we have missed any functionality or we have something wrong you may let us know here

* Typical website development cost based on our research and recieving quotes from development companies for similar projects. It's worth noting that none of the consultancies we conversed with could come close to being able to build an ecommerce store that was as fast or scalable as the Nodex platform, futhermore, we have found no such evidence that one even exists, although, if you know of one please get in touch as we would love to hear about it!
