Here’s How to Get an eCommerce Website

When clients approach the ecommerce website design team, asking us to develop an ecommerce site, we begin the process by shooting a lot of questions. Questions like:
• Are your products physical or digital?
• How many products would you be selling?
• Would your products have variations (like colour or size)?
• What shipping options do you want to offer?
• Would you offer cash on delivery?
• Would your products carry taxes?

The simple fact is that most people do not know what is involved in e-commerce web design. They know that they want to sell, and nothing more. And that’s exactly where we can help as your Manchester e-commerce website design agency.

The eCommerce Web Design Process

Selling online could be as simple as placing a PayPal “Buy” button or as complex as a shopping cart with multiple products and several different payment options. When clients come to meet us over an initial consultation, they haven’t thought of these aspects. These questions help us steer the conversation in the right direction so we can come up with a solution that will suit your requirements and goals.

Features

Every aspect can literally change the entire solution. For instance, if you are selling physical products, you will need a lot many features that you will need when selling digital downloads. Selling physical products means considering aspects like shipping, which in itself is a huge topic of discussion with multiple components involved. Payment is another such aspect. You can accept payment by card, PayPal, or even offer cash on delivery. If you choose to accept card payments, you will need to create a Merchant account. This is a cumbersome and complex, but a necessary process, when you are taking card payments. Compare that with accepting payments via PayPal. All you need to do is to send your customers to PayPal’s payment portal where they can still choose to pay using their credit or debit card, but you don’t need a merchant account in this case. Ecommerce websites cost more than a normal brochure website because there are several factors present, and this involves a lot of planning. We can help you find a solution that’s perfect for you.
