Shopping Cart Website | E-Commerce Website | Solutions

The prevalence of eCommerce web sites have exploded on the Web in the past few years. There are literally millions of different e-commerce sites. An eCommerce website provides business with an extra avenue to sell their products and services.  In fact many businesses are moving away from the traditional bricks and mortar store front and using the internet as a more cost effective alternative to sell to their client base.  The eCommerce website also enables businesses to easily extend their client base out of their traditional geographical boundaries and sell to the world.

So why should the customer buy from your website instead of a competitor?  A successful eCommerce website is comprised of the following key ingredients:

  • Professional design - An attractive well designed eCommerce website will capture a prospective buyers attention, ensuring that they do not suddenly click away;
  • Useability - An eCommerce website needs to ensure that the process of selecting and purchasing products and services for a customer is as simple and intuitive as possible.  Minimising the clicks is essential;
  • Trustworthy - If a customer is going to hand over personal details such as their credit card or personal details, they need to feel that the website portrays trust and reliability.  A professional look along with essential SSL encryption help to secure a customers personal information while conveying trust;
  • Flexibility - Providing your customers with options for payment methods or shipping ensures that you do not impose any restrictions on your prospective customers that might force them to rethink their purchase.
  • Management - Catering for all your customers needs is essential, but you also need the tools to manage your online business.  Once you have customers purchasing goods from your website you need to be able to manage the process of fulfilling orders, tracking sales and other statistics.  You also need the flexibility to change your product or service offering as the needs and wants of your customer base change;
