E-Commerce Website Design (Online Store)

What is an E-Commerce Website?

An e-commerce website, sometimes referred to as an online store, is a website which allows customers to purchase products online.

How do E-Commerce Websites work?

An E-commerce website usually consists of a Product Catalogue, where users are able to click a "Buy Now" or "Add to Cart" button and are taken to a checkout screen. From this screen they enter details such as shipping/billing address and payment information and once the order is submitted the system will process the transaction (usually via a credit card gateway).

What should I look out for?

Many web developers will either custom develop an E-commerce website (usually very expensive) or utilise a prebuilt software package. These software packages are generally licensed either as Open Source or Commercial software. Commercial software is normally very well built by an experienced team of engineers, but is often quite expensive. Alternatively Open Source software is usually free, however in some instances "you get what you pay for" and the software is not the best selection or not always implemented correctly, leaving you with a system that is not easy-to-use and effective to maintain.
