Sandia Digital is able to design, update, and maintain a website for your e-commerce business
Web design for e-commerce websites is as critical today as good placement in a phone-book was 20 years ago, as more and more people are using digital means to search for small business information and reviews. An e-commerce website must look sharp, feature simple product display and selection, have a very secure payment gateway, and be mobile-friendly. Moreso, an e-commerce business website must be free of poor content and old images. Sandia Digital is available to assist in building or rebranding your e-commerce website with a variety of means.
When it comes to web design, Sandia Digital can handle a complete build from scratch or a full update of your current website. Our web design team has over a decade of experience, and develops with the most recent standards in mind. We make sure our websites are compatible to all devices, are top-rated for SEO, and are as secure as possible. We typically set up e-commerce websites with an SSL Certificate for integration with secure payment gateways such as PayPal or Authorize.net. We are also with you every step of the way through the web design and development process, and are locally available in case there are any issues.
We design and develop our e-commerce websites in many ways. A custom platform can be developed specifically for your needs with HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MySQL and/or SQL Server; alternatively we can also develop your website around the following Content Management Systems:
The WordPress CMS can be used for everything from simple websites to complex e-commerce installations.
The Magento CMS is an excellent choice for e-commerce sites, as it is easily scaled.
Payment gateways are critical for any e-commerce operation, and it is important to pick the right ones for your website. Sandia Digital is familiar with several payment gateways, and we can recommend one or many for your business.
PayPal is useful for both enterprise and small business e-commerce websites, however we generally recommend this for at least small business. PayPal offers off site payment processing for small business owners, and is used by millions of customers making transactions very simple.
Authorize.net is useful primarily for medium to large businesses. Authorize.net has an essentially in-house approach, where your customers can process all credit card payments via your website. It is very useful in that your customers do not need to leave your website.
Stripe is incredibly useful for businesses with an e-commerce presence and a physical presence. Stripe allows your customers to make payments both online and in-store, removing the need for complex accounting and book-keeping.
A frequently asked question about any web design project is the cost. Pricing and cost for web design projects can vary depending on needs and function, however price can also depend on who is designing your website. There are many firms that unfortunately require a $10,000 minimum for any work, no matter on the size or functionality of the site. Sandia Digital is much more flexible in this regard, and can perform work at a fraction of the cost that many firms charge their clients. We also do not offshore work, as we find that typically offshoring leads to poor quality and missed deadlines.
While we can’t give you an exact price of a website without knowing the requirements, we can give you our average costs for e-commerce web design below.
