WHAT SYSTEM DO WE WORK ON?
We create online stores on the proven, developed, and most of all secure WordPress platform, exploiting the WooCommerce plugin.
Open source online stores, especially the ones created on the WordPress platform, have a huge number of free and paid add-ons, which aid the system’s functionality and help adapt it to current SEO trends.
Available support from the community and professional developers makes the existence of your WordPress-based online store simple and reliable. Opting for this platform is a riskless solution – this is a proven system, used by millions of businesses worldwide, so you won’t be going in blind. It is a trusted, proven and reliable option, which means that investing into the e-commerce industry will not result in failures.
Online stores on WordPress CMS are fast, aesthetic and cheaper than those created on competitive platforms. In addition, they are convenient in use, especially when later expansions are implemented.
WordPress is currently the most popular CMS system in the world. And it’s no surprise!
You too can own "the ‘most popular online store in the world’"
Why? Because WooCommerce is currently the most popular e-commerce platform on the web, proudly driving almost 30% of all online stores – most of which are met with great success.
These numbers, or rather facts have to impress, right?
Open source "i.e. a free system - no contract, no subscription"
Exactly! The Woocommerce plugin (like WordPress itself), is free. But not only it’s free, it is also continuously developed and regularly updated. All this without any long-term contracts, monthly subscriptions or additional fees.
Of course, there are also paid solutions (plugins) that extend the functionality of WooCommerce, e.g. integration with parcel machines (e.g. those owned by Amazon). However, even then, the cost of such projects will usually have to cover 2-3 working hours of a dedicated programmer.
We make every effort to ensure that the e-stores we create are effective, and achieve our sales goals. We ensure that:
- They are characterised by simplicity of use for all users/customers. Even newbies who struggle with online browsing.
- They are search engine friendly in every aspect (i.e. having the ability to optimise and adapt them at all times, especially the elements which are closely connected and judged by Google).
- They use the latest promotional and sales tools (Google Merchant, convenient payment methods, discount systems etc.).
- They work in accordance with current standards, trends and good SEO practices.
- They are consistent with business goals, tailored specifically to the given industry, market segment and target audience.
- They are developmental, flexible, and friendly to future expansion, especially concerning functionality.

If you would like to use our services, but your mind is still filled with additional queries regarding the process of online store creation, then get in touch!
Contact us or feel free to browse the list of frequently asked questions/answers:
1. How much does it cost to run an online store?
This depends entirely on its functionality and thus the amount of work necessary to run it flawlessly.
A simple online store based on a premium template will be less expensive than an advanced system, especially one including unique graphic design, special effects, integrations or filtration options.
We will be able to provide you a precise quote after getting acquainted with the technical plan for your project. If you do not possess one, our project manager will arrange a meeting, where you will be able to outline everything and obtain all necessary evaluation and price plans.
And do not worry, we won’t expect you to speak in a highly technical language. Just tell us what you want, how you want it and by when, specifying only the straightforward details and notions. We will work it out from there.
However, if you’re looking after an instant quote, we can provide a very approximate cost of building your online store in WordPress (from Woocommerce). The lowest prices will look something like this:
Premium template online store: starting from £800 +
A custom online store created on demand: from £1,300 +
2. Is it a one-time fee?
We do not sell online stores in the SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) model, i.e. in the cyclical subscription-based model.
The fee for implementation, creation from scratch, transportation, or amendment of your existing system will therefore be a one-time fee. Of course, however, maintaining it, updating and expanding will be met with extra costs set by Mapi Media LTD. A monthly contract-based SEO service or one-time purchase options are available.
- Purchasing an additional subscription for plugins (for each consecutive year). These can be used during vast processes, e.g. the construction of the online store.
Two important notes: Firstly, we do not use premium plugins in each and every project. Secondly, after the first year of use, the premium plug-ins chosen by us initially, do not just stop working, even if you decide to end the subscription. However, you do lose access to any updates or possible technical support from the creators. During the first stages of e-store construction, we always make sure that all circumstances and matters related to premium plugins are outlined and explained clearly.
- Making use of our e-store management support. We do not mean issues related to warranty or training, but a service offering additional administrative care: maintenance, moderation, updating etc. Unfortunately, owning an e-store means that you will constantly need someone to manage the site. After all, goods come and go, sales are introduced, stock is changed, new items/services are added, reviews need moderating etc. In this field, constant work is required, and you will need a reliable programmer who knows the ins and ends of the website, to complete the job for you.
3. How long does it take to build an online store?
It depends on its functionality and demands, and thus the amount of work necessary to create such system.
We are able to create and launch a simple online store based on a premium template within 10 business days. Projects consisting of several stages (i.e. unique e-stores fashioned to a specific, custom design) require more time, more workload and therefore more manpower. In many cases the projects come to an end anytime between 30-60 business days.
So, as you can see, the finish line will vary for everybody. Therefore, in order to get a close estimate of the price and finish date, we will require a detailed analysis of your e-store plans and ideas. The price and completion date are always included within the contract.
4. I want to place an order on the construction of my online store. What information will you require?
In order to have the best and most complete picture of your ideas, we will need the following:
- Information on website structure and product categories,
- Details regarding shipments, payments, delivery costs and all variables that affect them,
- Details concerning external integrations (payment operators, logistics, warehouse, accounting, marketing and possible co-dependency between these parties),
- Full product information (photos, descriptions, features, attributes, subsequent filtering),
- Information outlining the markets, currencies and languages you will plan to tackle.
Your path to a functional online store does not have to be complicated, nor brim with hidden traps or dangers.
Because in the end, you choose your cooperation partner, i.e. the people you will communicate with on a regular basis. When it comes to undertaking common activities, a good contact, mutual understanding and transparency, are the fundaments of a good and healthy relationship. This principle is as important to us, as it is to you.
