Ecommerce Website Design Barcelona

Ecommerce means being able to accept online payments through your website for products or services that you provide.  This process can be a simple Paypal ‘Buy Now’ or a system that lets users add products to a shopping card whilst continuing to browse your site, and then checking out and paying when they are ready.

Ecommerce software and ‘add to cart’ or ‘shopping cart’ scripts can be incorporated into the design of your website, and even secure pages that need to be hosted on other sites, such as Paypal, can be customised to include your logo and website colour scheme.

A basic online payment solution lets you accept credit card payments via the internet. If you use an online payment software such as Paypal or Netbanx you don’t even need to have an Online Merchant ID number.

Ecommerce with WordPress

WordPress is a powerful content management system (CMS), not just a blogging tool. With WordPress your website can do more or less anything a website needs to do and an ecommerce CMS is just one of them. There are many ecommerce theme designs and plugins that have been developed, tested and currently being used on WordPress sites to enable credit card payments online – all of which can be customised to your design requirements.

Paypal’s e-commerce solutions

Paypal is one of the most flexible and well-known systems for buying and selling online. Customers don’t need to have a Paypal account to purchase items via the web, but a registered Paypal seller can accept payments from all major credit and debit cards. It’s an easy system to integrate into an existing website, and ideal for small to medium-sized businesses.

Paypal has a standard service which is free to incorporate and use, and you pay a commission on transactions. Paypal’s pro version has a monthly fee but you have much more flexibility, such as being able to accept payments on your own website without the customer being redirected to Paypal’s website, lower transaction fees and more customisation options.

Cost of ecommerce website development

The cost of an ecommerce website design and build all depends on the size of your website and the number of items you have for sale. However, Paypal and WordPress have revolutionised the ecommerce market and it’s now possible to have a professional and very affordable ecommerce solution in order to accept payments online.
