frequently asked questions

eCommerce Development FAQ

Planning for an eCommerce website but have questions. We have compiled a list of the most common questions we encounter from our clients at Arete Software.

What is the cost of new eCommerce?

It is the number one question we received from our clients, and the quick answer is- it depends. The design functionality requirements for eCommerce website design projects can vary widely from business to business based on the industry and goals. Once we start discussing the project, we will collect information about the business requirements and goals and thus prepare the quote for the project. You can submit a quote request for a free, no-obligation quote for your project.

What is the timeline for a new eCommerce website development project?

The eCommerce website involves more complexity than a usual business website, and thus it requires more time to complete the project. For a typical eCommerce website development project, we estimate the timeline from six to twelve weeks. However, we set the pace as per our client, and we never rush the project. As we get started, we will plan and provide you heads up on preparing the information for the website, such as content, product information and pictures, and other details such as shipping, tax information, etc. So, while we are getting your new online store ready, you can get the content and product information prepared for your store.

Which shopping cart solution is best for my project?

The choice of the shopping cart will depend on the size, scale, and features wishlist. We work with a variety of shopping cart solutions such as Shopify, WooCommerce, OpenCart, and Magento. If you are setting up a new online store or have a limited inventory, we would suggest going for WooCommerce or Shopify.

However, if you have intermediate to a vast catalog, we would recommend going for OpenCart or Magento. You can discuss with our eCommerce development expert the recommendations for the RIGHT shopping cart for your project.

Do I have to be local to work with you?

Not at all. We work with clients around the globe and have successfully delivered the eCommerce project. We use audio/video communication tools to facilitate communication and offering personalized services to our clients. So, whether you are working locally or remotely, our team works efficiently to deliver your project.

Will I be able to manage the everyday functions of an online store myself?

Yes. Your eCommerce website will come with a comprehensive dashboard with tools and features to manage the products, orders, customers, and much more. On completion of the project, we will provide a training session to help you navigate and manage your online store. Like all other clients, you will feel confident to operate your online store on your own. However, if you have any questions or need additional help, we always remain available for you.

Do you maintain online stores?

Yes, absolutely. Many of our customers choose to work with our team for ongoing maintenance and upkeep for the online store. Our team supports various tasks as managing the products and content regularly. You can check our website maintenance plans.

Will my eCommerce website be mobile-friendly?

With more than two-third of online traffic stemming from mobile devices, mobile responsiveness is at the core of eCommerce websites we create. We thoroughly QA each website on a variety of mobile devices to ensure your online store looks great on every device.

What are your payment terms?

An eCommerce website is a significant investment, and we get that. So, work with our client to plan for the expense and offer flexible payment plans that meet your situation. We can accept payment via Credit card, PayPal, and direct bank deposits.

Will you help me for the products uploading/adding to the site?

Yes, of course! To upload the products to your online store, we will provide the Spreadsheet template to enter all details for the different products. You can send back the completed spreadsheet along with the product pictures and we will upload it to your online store. However, if you like us to collect the information from the provider website or manually enter the products to the online store, you can contact us for a custom quote for you.

What web hosting options do you recommend?

An eCommerce website requires more resources than an informational website, so you need robust web hosting for your store. We would strongly recommend selecting a hosting plan with enough power and not just purchase based on the price. We work with a variety of hosting providers, and some of the top recommendations are GoDaddy, SiteGround, IONOS, etc. We also provide managed hosting services on our secure dedicated servers.

Do you offer some low-cost options for clients on budget?

An eCommerce website is a significant investment, and not every business is ready for a custom online store. So, contact us if you are on a budget, and we can discuss the low-cost eCommerce website development options with you.

Can you help manage my eCommerce store?

Yes, we can help. You can avail of our eCommerce website maintenance services for occasional updates or sign-up for ongoing plans. You can check out our maintenance plans for more information.
