What is an E-Commerce system?
E-Commerce is the process of selling goods online. We are starting to see a real shift away from traditional shops to websites. This is ultimately down to the convenience and the widespread growth of the internet.
Powered by WooCommerce – a plugin for WordPress, your website is capable of selling a wide range of products whilst keeping track of all your orders in an easy and efficient manner. It takes under 5 minutes to add a product to your site.
What are the prerequisites of an E-Commerce site?
As long as you have something to sell, we can build an online shop. People always assume that it’s a long and difficult process but we do not agree. If it’s a totally new site, we will have have to put together a theme. If your site is already powered by WordPress there is much less work to do.
How do I take payment?
You may think it’s difficult to take payment online – it’s not. We usually advise our clients to use PayPal as a payment processor as it is quick and easy to set up. If you want, we can enable cash on delivery, BACS or Stripe payments. Be aware that you will have to pay a percentage of each sale, usually in the region of 2.5% to whoever handles your payment transactions.
It’s difficult to advise how much an E-Commerce site will cost you as everyone has different needs. Please get in touch for a free no obligation quote.
