Magento Custom Development Agency

Magento Custom Web Development

Whether you need a brand new responsive Magento website built, custom modules and extensions developed, or upgrading to the Magento platform, our team of talented experts can help fulfil your business requirements. Our team of certified Magento developers specialise in PHP, MySQL, HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, the very open source technology Magento is built with.

We build Magento websites from scratch, allowing us to control the overall codebase more carefully and ensure your website is scalable letting your business to grow online. Our project managers work closely with our client to determine your business requirements and goals and formulate bespoke features.

With years of practice, we have become a specialist in the area of integration with payment gateways, shipping service providers, as well as other third-party business applications. In the past, we have custom developed features such as building B2B services, gift cards, multiple warehouse stock management, and many other features.

Magento Best Practice

Best Practice

With our certified Magento developers, we follow best coding practices to deliver bespoke shopping experiences for your customers. We regularly train our staff and exercise our skills due to the nature of changing standards within our industry, to better our work and produce innovative designs. This also enables us to provide the best technical development services to all of our clients.

We perform code audits and regularly review our working codebase to better improve the performance and push the boundaries of what Magento can do.

Faster Magento Websites

Faster Loading Magento Websites

Sluggish speeds will not just affect your page load but also hurt your customers’ patience. This can have a major impact on your Google rankings. Here at R & W Media, when developing we always ensure speed is an important factor. Performing code audits, monitoring environments, using industry leading software, such as New Relic, to provide deep insights on site performance and identify any bottlenecks allows us to continuously optimise the site performance.

Typically employing fast-caching methods, including Varnish, Redis, and CDNs, we can ensure your website pages are load lightning-fast at peak traffic. Faster loading websites will provide a stress-free customer shopping experience and see an increase in conversion rates.

Magento Version Control

Magento Version Control

All Magento website codebases will be actively maintained and managed by us. This is securely stored in our code environment in Git, version control software that keeps track of all revision history when making development changes.

With this, we can continue to develop knowing that previous versions of your website are always kept safe. Should we ever need to rollback or revert to a previously made change, we are able to do so without hassle.

Magento Development QA Testing

Magento Quality Assurance Testing

Our highly skilled Magento developers rigorously test your website before launch. We carry out a variety of methods to test features that we have built to ensure they meet the intended purpose and are reliable and stable for release.

In order to pass our QA assessment, features are put through our internal testing, which involves both manual and automated tests. We use a variety of testing tools, including the Magento functional testing framework, hardware testing through a multitude of computers and mobile and tablet devices, and finally, rather than assuming something works, we proceed in attempting to break it. Once satisfied with our own tests, we go through a customer-facing user acceptance test for final verification.

Magento Website Deployment


Over the years, R & W Media has been perfecting the deployment process. We use automated tools to help move larger changes to the production environment seamlessly without any disruption or downtime.

We use continuous integration, a development practice that requires our developers to integrate code on a regular basis in a shared repository. When developing new features, they are rigorously tested individually and alongside already existing features in order to fully ensure that there are no conflicts or bugs introduced that may break or harm the website.

We can automate large parts of the production workflow across a cluster of servers and to cloud-based servers. With our automated workflow, we can be confident our clients will always receive functional deliverables each time.

Magento System Integration

System Integration

We have helped our clients achieve success not just online but also through management of business efficiency. We ensure the Magento platform can speak to your vital business software, ranging from your order management and catalogue management software to your CRM, ERP, or even accounting software such as Sage.

With our partners, who are on board at the initial planning stage of a project, the focus can be diverted to delivering the necessary system integration with Magento to instil confidence that the integration work is successful with both systems able to speak to one another.

Magento Project Management

Project Management

Our project managers are key contacts throughout the project lifecycle. Their key role is to maintain communication with our clients and manage the team to make sure the project is on track and within budget.

Using Active Collab, the leading project management software, we ensure that all projects run efficiently, whilst hosting it privately to keep security at a maximum. With this software, we can easily communicate with our clients, set up milestones, see the entire project overview, and keep documents and notes shared. You will always know the project status, any outstanding tasks, be able to view invoices, and all in more than one location. No more endless digging out old emails or blindly following a project process.

Magento is a big part of our business and so we are very community-driven. As members of the London Magento User Group, we actively participate in the Magento community; appearing at conferences, participating at discussions, and attending events all allow us to keep at the top of our game.

Words from our clients

The R&W team are an extremely professional and highly competent development partner. I would recommend them without hesitation.
William Starritt - Director
Antler logo
We have been working with R&W for the past 2 years and would highly recommend working with them. Steven (Technical Direct of R & W Media) has been a pleasure to work with; super knowledgeable and it is re-assuring to know that he is available at the end of the phone to discuss any concerns you might have. The team are detail oriented and work towards best practice and time after time have produced solid builds for us; on time and on budget. I couldn't recommend R&W more; and wish them continued success in the years to come.
Michael O Connor - Ecommerce Manager
Top class eCommerce developers. I've been working with eCommerce projects for over 20 years and I wish I knew R & W Media from the very beginning. Web Development and customer services are 5 stars. The development of my Magento website with them was a stress-free experience. I can't recommend them enough.
Kleber de Carvalho - Marketing Manager
Cadet Direct
I contacted four separate Magento developers before proceeding with Steven (Director of R & W Media) and have no regrets. R & W Media has an excellent knowledge of Magento and is quickly able to find solutions to our e-commerce problems. They are polite and professional and responds quickly to both routine development requests and critical issues. R & W Media is patient and is able to absorb and understand our ideas and requirements. R & W Media integrates well with our SEO agency and they regularly praise his knowledge and skills. Our site hosting is also managed through R & W Media Magento-optimised system and business has increased significantly since they took over at the beginning of 2014.
James Munday - Managing Director of Cadet Direct Ltd
Steven (Director of R & W Media) is a fantastic developer who has a great understanding of Magento. We continue to use him as he has a fantastic attitude to work and is always happy to help.
Andy Hopkinson - Digital Producer at Tommy
Steven (Director of R & W Media) has so far handled the development project excellently. The results are extremely pleasing and I am looking forward to working with him on completing the project. He has extensive knowledge of Magento, actually there probably isn't anything he doesn't know in this regard. Very good all round. Thanks Steven
Ben Wilson - Director
The Bed Slats Company
From Start to Finish with my project, it was a great experience, although based in Central London (R & W Media) would visit me to for face to face progress meetings which was fantastic, they used a great project management software to manage progress throughout the website build and delivered a brilliant website that has started to generate sales from Day 1. Highly Recommend for any project involving Magento.
Sanjeev Thakerar - Director
