Ecommerce Web Design...
ECommerce is the name used to embrace all the business activities involved in the act of selling or trading goods and services directly online. It covers everything from online shopping catologues and other advertising aids, to directly selling goods, products or services to customers through a variety of other online methods.
Whether you run an exclusive business-to-business operation or sell goods or services directly to the public, you will gain maximum benefit from your website by using a dedicated eCommerce Shopping Cart, enabling your retail or B2B customers to order your products directly online.
Retail customers normally pay by credit card at the time the order is placed, whilst B2B customers normally order "on account" and then pay at a later date under agreed trading terms.
Would normally be used for online retail shopping sites and B2B trade sites, enabling customers to directly order and pay for goods online, or order them on account.
Would normally be used to display large, expensive products like cars and houses which are not normally available to purchase online due to legal and other factors.
Static or Dynamic Product Display?A product display is called static when the information is permanently embedded into a web page, rarely changes, and usually requires your web designer to update it. A product display is called dynamic when the information is fed on demand from an online database, which enables you, the owner, to make changes and add new products at any time 24/7.
The decision to display your products statically or dynamically depends on 3 factors:
- The total number of products being displayed on the website
- The frequency with which products, specifications or prices change
- Your website budget
