Ecommerce & Shopping Carts

Web Design BuildingDo you have a business that lacks an online shopping cart? If so you are missing out on millions of potential clients. We have the perfect solution to open your business to the entire internet. A lot of people do not know how quick, easy, and low-cost a simple shopping cart is. You might end up paying $1000 for a shopping cart, but if your store ends up bringing in $10,000 a month, then you have already made a substantial amount of profit. Running an online shopping cart actually has very low costs.

Some people believe if you have a shopping cart, you are all set to go- but that is not the case. There are a few upfront costs and monthly payments in order to accept online credit cards, maintenance and updates, as well as ensuring security. Every online store that wishes to accept credit cards will need a merchant account. Unfortunately we do not provide merchant accounts, but we can point you into the right direction of a place that does! Other than a simple merchant account, you will also need to be sure your website is on a secure server, and encrypts secure information (such as credit card details).

The best thing about a shopping cart, is that you can sit back and watch the orders simply roll in. There is very little maintaining other than updating products and prices.

If you do not require an entirely customizable shopping cart, there are other solutions such as the PayPal Shopping Cart.

PayPal Shopping Cart

When you use PayPal's Shopping Cart on your website, your customers can purchase multiple items with a single payment, browse your entire selection, and view a consolidated list of all items before purchasing. The PayPal Shopping Cart is a low-cost way for you to accept credit card and bank account payments, and can be fully integrated with your web site.

PayPal allows businesses to save money each month, thus being the perfect payment processor for all business types. When a customer sees a product he/she simply clicks the add to cart button. Then the shopping cart knows that it has that item inside the basket. Once the customer is done finding products, he/she simply clicks on 'Check out'. Next the shopping cart calculates the total fees and allows the customer to pay now using the PayPal secure server.

So what’s the catch? It sounds too good to be true… The problem that people have with PayPal’s shopping cart, is that the word PayPal will show up on the bill for your client. When your client reviews his/her bank account, your business will not appear under the transaction, instead “PayPal” will be shown. If you do not have a problem with that, then a PayPal shopping cart is the way to go!
