|What do you need to sell online?|
As long as you want to sell goods and services on the Internet and collect payments electronically then you need an eCommerce website or eCommerce Store.
What is an eCommerce website?
The key objective of an eCommerce website is the ability to sell goods and services online and collect payments electronically. Not all websites have these objectives in mind.
Business websites that focus on advertising and having their information accessible through the Internet don’t need the ability to collect payments online. These types of sites are informational sites. Their purpose is to focus on getting sales leads or retaining current customers by providing some type of convenient information online.
Features You Need in an eCommerce Website
There are a few features that are found in eCommerce websites that are not found in standard business or informational sites. These features together support the following:
To do all these you will need the following features in your eCommerce Website:
- Present your goods and services in an organized manner within your site
- Ability to sell and accept payment online
- Manage orders easily
- Keep track of customers so you can communicate with them in the future
- Manage orders more easily and timely.
- Ability to track inventory
- product catalog
- shopping cart
- secure check-out
- inventory management
- order management
- customer management
Not all eCommerce websites will have all these features. Usually these features are sold as program modules and your developer would then install them to your site. Installation of these features is an additional service beyond the design and development of web pages that they normally do. The program modules are either sold separately or sold in group packages. The cost of purchasing these modules would be built into your development cost. The more of these features you have the more costly the eCommerce site development would finally cost.
