Custom E-Commerce Web Design
Running an e-commerce store presents different needs and challenges than having a regular “brochure” website for your company. The back-end maintenance and ease of use is very important. Along with this consideration is the overall design. All of my shopping cart designs are custom and based on your needs. You may want a more simple look or a more impressive design. This will depend on your competition, vision and products.
Along with the design, I will set up your shopping cart for you and add an agreed amount of products to the site prior to launch. The shopping cart system will be set up so you can maintain your own E-Commerce store, or you can choose to have me maintain it for you for an additional cost.
I will work with you to create an E-Commerce store that you and your customers will love!
Shopping Cart Systems/Options
Depending on your needs, I will generally recommend 1 of the 3 following options:
Simple Paypal Buttons can be a great E-Commerce Solution if you don’t have that many products and they aren’t very complex. This solution can also work for you if you have a few services/tours that you want visitors to be able to sign up for on your website. This solution is extremely simple to set up and start selling right away.
Another option is using a simple shopping cart application. This solution may work for you if you don’t have a lot of products or your products don’t require a lot of custom features.
If your business is solely an online store, I suggest we use a robust shopping cart system. I recommend this for clients who have a true E-Commerce store with a wide variety and selection of complex products. If your products have many colors, options, prices, categories and you will need a system to track payments, inventories, discounts, etc, I would definitely recommend this system. This system does have a monthly fee starting at $25, which includes hosting, live support, inventory management and more.
