What is E-Commerce?
E-Commerce or Ecommerce is the next step in the evolution of the simple advertising website. It provides you and your Company with the ability to advertise your company's products through a website and then take immediate orders and payment for purchased products and services securely online from customers all over the world.
What is wrong with a traditional brochureware website?
Many if not the majority of commercial websites on the internet have been designed as a simple showcase or online advertisement for a company and its products and services.
These traditional brochureware websites, however well designed, simply entice the prospective client to the next stage in the sales process, i.e. to contact the company concerned and to enquire about the products they are interested in.
This can be a perfectly good method of advertising in traditional media, but on the internet things are more immediate! If a prospective customer likes what you are offering, they will want to buy the product there and then. But, if it's 10 in the evening and all your sales staff have gone home, they will more than likely forget about you and your product and go to another site where they can make the purchase.
Therefore, you can and will lose sales!
How much does an E-Commerce website cost?
The cost of any E-Commerce website can be split into three components...
- The design cost of the website itself
- The cost of implementing E-Commerce features into the website
- The costs of setting up and running a secure on-line payment system
The cost of the Website Design
The costs of designing an E-Commerce website should not be greatly different to designing a normal brochure type website, although many web design companies will artificially inflate this part of the cost for not real reason.
The cost of implementing the E-Commerce features into the website
Implementing the E-Commerce features can vary in scale from the creation of a simple online form, to a fully blown multi-level shopping basket system with many advanced features. Obviously the cost will vary considerably too, but, if you discuss with us your precise requirements it is more than likely that the costs will be less than you imagine.
At Webcreationz, we can handle the entire design, development and implementation of your E-Commerce website, and the costs are lower than you think.
