Do you wish to start selling your goods and services on the internet with an ecommerce web site?

It may seem strange that the we should be starting ths section with a warning.... do you really need an ecommerce site?

What is "full ecommerce"?

Essentially full ecommerce will give your customer the ability to browse your products and buy online at any time of the day or night, paying for the products you are selling with debit or credit card. This all seems like good news and most businesses would jump at the chance to have a shop open 24 hours a day.

Don't be put off, the benefits are clearly there but it is important to recognise the set up and ongoing costs before making the decision that your business needs full ecommerce.

What do you need?

  1. e-commerce web site
  2. Secure server to accept credit card details online
  3. Web space
  4. Domain name
  5. End user software to manage orders
  6. Processing account with your bank or other provider
  7. Regular updates to stock on the site
  8. Credit card facilities

Setting up an e-commerce site is not just a case of designing a web site and loading up a "click here to pay" button.

E-Commerce Web Sites - Just £850 all inclusive

EA Design can create a fully functional e-commerce web site, including the supply of the relevant end user software, web space, secure server and domain name for just £850.

Other than this cost you should also take account of a cost of around £35 - £50 per month that you bank or other service provider will charge to process the online payments for you and obviously the standard percentage charge that your credit card company will make on purchases made.




EA Design - Affordable business websites

If your business is likely to generate sufficient extra online sales to justify this cost then we should talk straight away, however if the ongoing costs have made you take a sharp intake of breath then don't worry, there could be other solutions that will still get you selling on the web.

Stripping out costs to get you started.

We have found that many businesses want to start selling on the internet but are loathe to take the plundge due to the high cost of the bank services that they have to sign up to and the uncertainty that the investment will show a positive return.

There are solutions to this problem and EA Design can help you get off the ground with e-commerce without the ongoing cost risk.

If you currently have "customer not present" credit card facilities then you can have the same fully automated site accepting secure payments by credit card as detailed above. The only difference is that when orders are received you will need to phone them through to your credit card provider in the normal way. This removes the need to sign up for online authorisation of payments with you bank saving the monthly cost of around £50 per month.

The web site will look exactly the same and the clients will be advised that their payments will be deducted from their account after a short period rather than straight away.

If, after you have tested the water, you feel that full automation of the process is viable then you can simply add the online authorisation service to your account.

The web site will still cost the same in design terms as the secure server, design, hosting and web space are still required. However this will be all you pay other than the cost of any updates which you wish to make to the site.

The best way to find out about e-commerce is to give us a call or make an enquiry. We will be happy to discuss all the options available to you at any time without obligation.

If you do not currently, or do not wish to accept credit card payments then you may want to consider our "paypal" web site design service.
