Who is e-commerce for?

E-commerce becomes the platform from which sellers, suppliers and traders can operate from. It is a way of displaying items which are available for purchase in a clean and orderly manner.

Seller / supplier / trader:

E-commerce acts as as the store in which sellers, suppliers and traders can sell services and goods. It allows these parties to confidently sell and promote products and services in a clean manner that is not physical. The presentation and ease of shopping is very important to any owner of an online store. E-commerce is like having an employee work 24/7.

Consumer:

E-commerce allows consumers to shop comfortably and confidently all over the world from any device. Products and services need to look appealing, the store needs to be easy to navigate and the product/service needs to have enough information about it (but not too much to  be overwhelming). Sellers and owners really need to understand how their consumers shop in order to have a successful online store.

Where can I get an e-commerce website?

The first option consists of “doing-it-yourself”. Many companies provide the option to create your own online store (varying in customisation possibilities). These companies include the likes of Shopify, Wix and so on. 

The second option is to hire a freelance web designer/developer that specialises in e-commerce websites. Platforms such as Dribble and Behance allow fellow creatives or job seekers to link with potential clients. 

Lastly, the third option, is to hire a web design agency to design, manage and execute the project and act as a source of knowledge and guidance when it comes to e-commerce. We are classified as an agency and can help you get your store online by providing expertise in e-commerce.

How do I go about getting an online store?

A handy tip for all newbies to the online shopping scene is to do your research. Once you know what you need for your online store (the type, size and target market), decide how you would like to create your e-commerce site: by yourself, hire a freelancer or an agency. Next, gather all the necessary information, ready to hand it over to who will be building your online store (this is a massive time-saver and will help not only your hourly expense rate but the time of whoever you have decided to hire). 

As the project starts progressing and is finalised, monitor the analytics and remember that results take time. Trial-and-error is generally involved and there is always room for improvement for  e-commerce sites.
