Digital Pie designs and builds affordable websites that deliver results for small businesses in Tauranga and beyond. For businesses that sell products online, we also create e-commerce sites. Our websites may be affordable, but they are also premium and built on current best practices, including UX and UI design principles.
We are a full-service digital agency with the winning formula for helping businesses achieve more leads, more sales and more returns from their websites. To make sure the websites we design reach their full potential, our team can also create compelling content and effective advertising campaigns.

Ecommerce Web Design
Websites That Perform
With the continuing growth of online shopping, many businesses are creating online storefronts to boost their sales. Ecommerce stores allow customers to browse and buy goods and services at any time of the day. Digital Pie can design your new online store or optimise your current one to turn your visitors into customers.
We work with WooCommerce, a platform that integrates seamlessly with WordPress. The freemium software is free, functional and customisable, and you can buy extra features such as booking or subscription management and Xero account syncing.
WooCommerce integrates with a range of services, including NZ Post and shipment tracking, inventory and order management, as well as transactional and marketing emails. It also offers secure payment options, accepting leading credit and debit cards, bank transfer, PayPal, Apple Pay and Stripe.
Some of these have associated annual costs (tax-deductible), but none are exorbitant.
Our Recipe for Success
Helping Find Your Slice Of The Pie
Finding Your Flavour
Firstly, let’s get to know each other. We will learn about your small business, and you will discover how we can help it grow with a well-designed, professional website. What are your goals for your new or redesigned website? What do you like and not like about similar websites? We will discover all of this and more in our first chat. You will then be sent a free, no-obligation quote and proposal.
Handpicking the Ingredients
In this phase of the project, we will analyse your competitors’ websites and come up with a design strategy to make sure your digital presence stands out from your competition’s. Our in-house digital connoisseurs will plan a website structure and layout that best suits your unique business. A web designer will then create a custom mockup of your homepage for you to give early feedback on.
Perfecting The Design
Our Tauranga team will then get to work on perfecting your website. We will design and build the remaining pages to match your brand – or the brand we create for you. A website only has a few seconds to grab a visitor’s attention, but we have insight into what goes on behind the screens. Our web designer understands the psychology of design and will make sure your website is optimised for user experience.
Adding The Filling
If you need compelling written content for your website – whether it’s the whole site or just a few pages – our in-house copywriters can help. They can also enhance your current content if you want to take it to the next level. Our writers are equipped to craft content for businesses in any industry. One of our writers will be in touch to gather any information they need to produce your quality, relevant content.
The Taste Test
We will send you a link to view your website before it goes live. You will then meet with us – in person or remotely – to discuss any changes you may have. We do our own rigorous testing behind the scenes to make sure everything is working correctly. Our team understands your new website is an important business investment, so we want you to be completely happy with the finished product.
Serving Up The Final Piece
Once you are ready for us to launch your website, we will upload it to the hosting server and make it live. We will link your site to the world using SEO, indexing and analytics so it is ready to grow your business. Your new website will be just the right mix of beautiful and functional. We’ll provide information about how you can manage your site, but ongoing support is a common courtesy you can expect.
