We are experts in custom e-Commerce web design and development for all types of websites.
e-Commerce websites, or Woocommerce Websites (built using WordPress), are a great way to showcase you products and give potential customers the opportunity to buy them online. They show the products or services your company provides. They are technically brochure websites with the e-Commerce module added to enable you to sell online.
What is an ecommerce website?
e-Commerce means to complete a transaction online, so an e-Commerce website is a means of buying and selling goods and services online. Just as in a traditional shop you’d find on the high street, online retailers, or companies with an online presence, need a platform on which to build their online store and carry out transactions.
There are two aspects to an e-Commerce website: a storefront and a checkout. The virtual storefront allows you to display your products and/or services so customers can find out about them, and the checkout allows them to securely pay for those goods and/or services.
Why do you need an e-Commerce Website?
For many businesses, their website is the first point of contact between buyer and seller. Many people do their shopping online now, for all sorts of goods and services. This means that having a website that’s both a visually pleasing and easy to use brochure of your website may not be enough.
Depending on your business and industry, having the option for users to purchase your products or services directly from your website can be vital to ensure you don’t lose out on custom, or even fall behind competitors already offering this as an option.
Like Brochure websites, e-Commence websites must be visually appealing, and the best e-Commerce websites use cutting-edge SEO strategies to stand out in search results. Even if you have the best website in the world, no one will ever see it if it is on the last page of Google results. Brochure websites are accessible on PCs, mobile devices, and tablets using any browser, so you can be confident that your business is reaching as many people as possible.
What to consider for your e-Commerce Website?
What content is in a eCommerce website?
Nowadays, if you’re selling anything – whether that’s clothing, shoes, furniture, groceries, toys or any other product or service in between – you need to hop on board the e-Commerce website train. An e-Commerce website offers you the chance to build your brand, connect with more customers, and sell more products and services – but only if you’ve got the right website design.
A well-made e-Commerce website is great for promoting your products. Using vivid descriptions and captivating images, they can draw people in and showcase your unique selling points to potential customers. Web design is critical when creating an ecommerce website. Good ecommerce web design is all about using the right colors, fonts, images, words and graphics to convince visitors to make a purchase.
Your ecommerce website design should attract potential customers, provide great user experience and present your shop in the best light. So, not only does your site have to look good and perform good, but it also needs to drive your website visitors to take action and, you know… buy your products and services.
An e-Commerce website is made up of pages that include content relating to your business as in a brochure website, and also, the pages that showcase your products in your online shop including the shopping cart and checkout. It will also include other pages for your customer to login and manage and track the progress of their orders.
An e-Commerce website also includes the ‘administration area’ which is where you would log in to manage and process your customer orders as well as add/edit your products and information such as prices, images, special offers and other sales related content.
