E-Commerce for Selling & Taking Payments
eBay, Aliexpress, Newegg, Amazon and BestBuy, to name a few, have built their success on solid e-commerce websites, with nice UX (user experience). As a business owner, you might have thought about the possibility of an e-commerce website at least once. So how do you get started ?
What is an E-Commerce Website ?
E-commerce (also written as eCommerce or electronic commerce, and also known as eshop) allows to showcase and sell your products 24/7 to the world over the internet.
Generally, the online products are displayed in categories for easy navigation and some of them, like fast-moving, promo or new products, may appear on the home page for instance. A backend management using a CMS should allow you to easily add/remove products, amend prices and so on. Besides all the features that will handle orders, the site should be safe and simple for easy shopping. Payment gateways providing different type of secure payment solutions such as credit cards and PayPal should be included.
How to run an E-commerce website efficiently ?
Stand out of the crowd by proposing innovative products. Then share these products on social platforms and wait for the snowball effect. Moreover, you can invite product reviews by satisfied customers, which will positively affect your business in two ways: Search engines like it and a happy customer’s testimonial is a valuable reassurance for new customers regarding the quality of your product. Last but not least, ask your suppliers or business partners to link to your website. This will be a win-win situation for your supplier since he will efficiently channel potential customers to you, particularly if you are doing business in the visitor’s region.
