E-commerce or ecommerce web design (either spelling is accepted) is a choice you can make
to have the capability of truly selling your products and/or services 24 hours a day, 7
days a week...and you don't have to be there all those hours.
- What's required: You need a merchant account and an online processing agent.
We will set up the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for you and guide you through the process of
getting started. Alternatively, you can use other services, such as Paypal that requires
nothing from you. Your customer will need to sign up for a Paypal account. While this is
easy for you, it may deter some customers from buying your product or service since it
takes an extra step.
- What you sell: Prepare a list of the items you wish to sell, along with a brief and long
description. You may have images of these items already from previous advertising. If you do
not, we can work with you to prepare your graphic or photographic images.
- Not yet on the Internet? You may start with your ecommerce web design, or you may choose to
start with a simple five to ten page site and upgrade to e-commerce in the months to come. This
will give you a chance to clarify your message before you launch your Internet sales.
It really is fun when you see your first sales start to come in over the Internet. With Search
Engine Optimization and analysis of your web site statistics we can work with you to build this
business. We strongly suggest one of our maintenance packages to help you
manage this important part of your business.
