Any business that sells goods or services online will know all to well that eCommerce is well and truly thriving in Australia at the moment.
We certainly live in the lucky country and our online retail spending figures are proof of that. Here are just some of the recent statistics to be released (see infographic below):

We recently launched a new ecommerce website for the team at Salin Plus.
Providing the world’s leading Salt Therapy devices for home and office, Salin Plus are a Perth based company who are doing big things in the air purification space.
Salin Plus weren’t looking for just any stock-standard web design company, the vision was to produce a website that showcases the wide range of products on offer and making it easy for visitors to purchase through a simple, yet secure shopping cart.
It certainly was fantastic working with such a great local company.
