E-commerce has been a bit of a buzz word for the last couple of years now. Trading on the internet is a hugely complex business and there are many aspects to consider when designing a successful ecommerce site. We can make the whole process of e-commerce less complicated by sitting down with you and planning the different stages. We would learn about your business model, then apply what we have learned to a site which will be designed in conjunction with yourselves. We can advise whether taking credit card payments online is your best option or whether you should consider other avenues.
"In dollar terms, the impact has been significant. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University estimate that online retail sales will reach $22 billion this year, up from $7 billion in 1998. And business-to-business internet sales are expected to skyrocket to $110 billion in 2008, up from $42 billion last year."
E-commerce solution requirements vary from client to client. BY not being tied to one particular product we can recommend the most popular technology to fulfill your needs.
We offer a variety of programs to provide online ordering facilities for our clients. Unlike the majority of shopping solutions our software is designed to be totally customizable.
The Client is responsible for providing EIS with:
- All photo of products
- Products descriptions
- Price amounts
- Sale prices
- Quantity of products available
- Shipping Information
- Tax information
- And any other information needed for the online ecommerce site to work.
It is the clients responsibility to add all of the products to the shopping cart. EIS will start every shopping cart out with 10 products to make sure the shopping cart is working properly. We use a third party shopping cart service and can not be held responsible for errors or any downtime that may incur over a period of time. Not all shopping carts run in FireFox or Safari, with that being said we will pit a disclaimer on all ecommerce sites that will read "Best Viewed Internet Explorer".
We do offer an upgrade service for ecommerce websites if you do not wish to add all of the products yourself. Click Here To Learn More About Our Shopping Cart Update Service.
