- eCommerce barriers to take into consideration – on-hand cash, ability to process volume transactions quickly, and shipping considerations.
- Timeline for seeing profits – this depends on marketing efforts and profits from product sales. Some businesses see profit in the first month whereas others can take many months, or even a year or more.
- Suggestions for driving traffic to an eCommerce site – technically sound SEO such as the use of canonical tags and search friendly URLs and product images, use of paid ads on search engines and social networks, utilize email marketing, blogs and forums to promote your site.

Our eCommerce web designs are clean, simple and produce a fast shopping experience – and we strive to work with Google’s newest Web Vitals Guidelines.
More than any other type of website, an e-commerce website design needs to take into account easy navigation, excellent internal search, flawless checkout process, and a secure process. To accomplish this we start by analyzing industry data and a history of data on your domain in order to accurately identify your ideal audience and necessary functionality.
We often recommend either Magento or Woo Commerce for our ecommerce because of their user-friendly interfaces. We particularly love Woo because of it’s WordPress integration. We understand how to best set up shipping and payment gateways so that your site adheres to PCI compliance and we take additional security measures that go above and beyond that.
We will work with you to map your products so that you set up recipes for bundles, product variables, and other options that make it easy for customers to shop for what they want, and you to easily pack and deliver these products quickly.
We will set up your:
- Payment Gateway (this is a merchant service that processes credit card payments. Some popular payment gateways include Authorize.net, PayPal/Braintree, Stripe, and Square.)
- Variable sales tax (When states allow cities or counties to add additional sales tax on top of the state tax this can be confusing. We will work through the details with you.)
- Interface to your Inventory and third-party tracking systems
- Shipping and tracking using your choice of carrier – UPS, FedEx, or USPS
- After your site is launched we will continue to work with you to ensure your new ecommerce website design is delivering new customers and an increase in conversions. Often our digital marketing team gets involved at this point.
