E-Commerce/Shopping Cart Websites

If you want to sell products or services over the internet, possibly with automatic credit card payments and workflow management, we can build a custom shopping cart or e-commerce website that will drive the sales you need.

As with all of the components we use on your website, our shopping cart software is purpose built by our web programmers and tailored to suit your exact needs. We do not use off-the-shelf shopping cart software (which is usually complicated to use, difficult to customise, and often plagued with security problems.)

We can allow your online shop to take credit card payments and automatically settle the funds into most Australian banks, or use a third-party payment provider such as PayPal if you prefer.

Many of our clients ask us to add workflow management to the shopping cart, allowing you or your staff to track orders and manage customers through the website's administration area.

In fact, we'll usually come up with several ideas that can save you time, money or both - such as exporting to your accounting software, importing products from your inventory software or a spreadsheet, promoting repeat customers, following up purchases, and synchronising with an email newsletter database.

The Web Development Process

One of our experienced project managers (who speaks your language!) will meet with you to plan the e-commerce website in detail. We will discuss the sales model and process, suitability of your product to online sales, target market, payment handling, security considerations, how the customer will use the shopping cart, and promotion ideas.  We will then provide you with an itemised quote.

The project manager will write the specifications for the project, and carefully review these with you to ensure the workings of the e-commerce website are described accurately.

Our graphic designers will put together a web design concept, and we will adjust the layout until both you and we are happy that it presents the online shop in the most appropriate manner.

Our web programmers will write the shopping cart code based on the specifications we have written, and the project will be made available for your review along the way.

Either you or us will add the products to the shopping cart, then once the project is completed, it will be put live.

Afterwards, we will teach you how to use the administration area, how to promote your website online, how to take advantage of social media, and how to measure the effectiveness of your website using web analytics software.
