  • Featured Portfolio: The Answer Series

    An example of our WordPress development skills applied to a world class project.

    Redesign of a site LightSpeed built in 2020.

    Project Type:

    Using WooCommerce Subscriptions, we created a neat solution for students and teachers.

    The Answer Series, a longstanding study guide company, wanted to make its printed study guides available online in the form of a subscription service via their website. In enabling the company to make this transition, a solution was required that would provide students access to their guides as digital content, as well as enable content managers to edit the guides.

    Through the development of an API, the study guides were able to be served to the user, and the integration of a subscription service was made possible through the use of WooCommerce Subscriptions, creating a neat solution for the needs of students and teachers.

Selling online profitably isn’t easy, and the number of e-commerce available can create uncertainty. Anxious about investing in development and unsure the result will meet customer expectations? We hear you, and can assist in delivering an extraordinary online shopping experience – across all devices – that keeps customers coming back for more.


Our guarantee

Your WooCommerce store will be customisable and extendable, user-friendly and mobile-responsive, fast and secure, and backed up by professional service delivery.

We pledge to deliver your website on time, within budget, and as scoped. If we break any of our promises, we will work diligently until your requirements are met, at no extra cost to you.

Make the right choice the first time

While many companies opt for the most affordable developer they can find, in our experience the cheapest option is not necessarily the most cost-effective solution.

We know this, because we often get calls from clients who have been through hell because a “cheap” freelancer was hired who failed to deliver. Often these websites are built so poorly that they get tossed in the trash – and this means starting from scratch. Ultimately, they pay double in terms of time and money lost, when this could have been put to better use marketing their store and growing their business.

We don’t want this to happen to you, so make the wise choice: when you choose to work with us, you’re using verified WooCommerce Experts.

We build custom, user-friendly and mobile-responsive e-commerce stores with bulletproof security that load fast on all devices. Every time.

Our focus is on your success

Our experienced team understands the intricacies of building a custom eCommerce store, and through our well-defined processes, have guided many clients through the complicated process of choosing the best solutions for their business and customers. By allowing us to apply our expertise in WooCommerce, we can help you too.


Experience the LightSpeed difference

Rather than pitching you a run-of-the-mill store design straight away, our aim is to first get a solid understanding of your business, target market, and e-commerce goals.

We set clear expectations from the start by compiling a comprehensive scope and quote, and provide you with a dedicated project manager who will assist you with every step.

Rest assured, as a verified WooExperts with over ten years hands-on experience working with WordPress, you’re in capable hands.

Contact us if you value professional service delivery.
