E-commerce Websites

Do you know what you are getting into?

You have to go into any e-commerce project with your eyes wide open; a well-constructed, properly planned and implemented e-commerce solution could be the making of your business. But if you haven’t thought it through properly an e-commerce solution can also cost you a lot of time and potentially money; this not meant to be negative, just honest.

e-commerce websites

If you are developing a non e-commerce website you will only really need to provide a few basic items of content:

  • Some text, which you may have to write
  • And some images

Once the site is completed and your content is added the website will be complete.

When you are building an e-commerce website there is a lot more for you the client to think about:

  • Sourcing product data from the manufacturer
  • How often will you need to update this
  • What stock will you hold for each product
  • What payment gateway will you use to process cards
  • Do you need to get a merchant account
  • How are you going to manage sales
  • Where will you process and pack orders
  • What shipping/delivery options can you offer
  • Will these be processed by a third party
  • Do your packages need to be signed for
  • What is your returns policy
  • Do you have a full set of Terms & Conditions
  • Does your website comply with PCI DSS regulations

That is just a few of the things you may have to think about; so you can appreciate it can be confusing and just a little daunting, but it doesn’t need to be if you get the right people to help you.
