Crocker & Co are a husband and wife team, made up of lifelong antiques enthusiasts, Jonathon and Rebecca Crocker. Nerve helped them take control of their online sales, by building them a bespoke ecommerce website using the Shopify platform.
Having lived in the South West of France for 13 years, Jonathon and Rebecca have built up many contacts to find those fresh to the market items. Objects that are both beautiful as well as unique that fit effortlessly into your home and garden.
The couple approached Nerve looking to develop their own online store (they were solely selling on the antiques sales site Hoarde). Having your own ecommerce antiques website brings a number of advantages over selling through sites like Hoarde and eBay. With the unique nature of an antiques business to consider, we recommended the Shopify platform.
Shopify offers a simplified way of adding products to your online store, making operating your ecommerce website a piece of cake. For a website like Crocker & Co, it is imperative that the owners are able to confidently manage their product listings- items coming in and going out quickly meant that Rebecca and Jonathon would need full control of the stock on their website.
Usually at Nerve, we build our websites using the WordPress platform, with ecommerce websites implementing the WooCommerce plugin. But Shopify offers an unrivalled simplicity, that is perfect for ecommerce website owners that perhaps aren’t 100% confident in managing the backend of a website.
If you sell antiques, or any other products for that matter and would like to find out how Shopify could help your business grow- get in touch.
