What is an E-commerce website?
An e-commerce website is a website aimed at promoting and selling your products or services via the internet. An e-commerce website will have a shopping cart system pre-built into it. The shopping cart system will add 'buy now' buttons to your website, and a 'basket' so that customers can pick and choose the products they want to buy and build an order in their 'basket'. Your e-commerce website will also have a payment gateway integrated into the 'checkout' so that customers can use their credit or debit card to pay for their order. The most popular payment gateway is PayPal, it is recognised by most customers and also allows the customer to use their PayPal account seamlessly, to pay for their order, rather than use their credit or debit card.
e-commerce websites come in all shapes and sizes, but making sure you have a consistent design is a good idea. This will help promote a better user experience and will give your customers confidence in your brand. Sellr has many designs to choose from and you can even browse themes based on your business type. A good e-commerce website promotes the products that it is selling rather than simply being a catalogue of items, all Sellr themes will allow you to create and add eye-catching descriptions and promotions for your each of your products.
