Ecommerce Development FAQ

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 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. This way, you can work on the above-mentioned information while we are working on
the design and development of your eCommerce project.

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 two third online traffic stemming from mobile devices, mobile-responsiveness is at the core
of eCommerce 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 a robust
web hosting for your store. We would strongly recommend to select 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.
