(Page 1 of 3 )
Ecommerce website design embraces the idea of the Internet storefront.When it comes to operating a store on the Internet, taking money from customers should be as easy as it is when dealing out of a street front shop. Cash, checks, credit cards, and debit cards are all viable means to handle paying for services, goods or other. When it comes to ecommerce website design, this is an issue that acquires paramount importance.
The importance is highlighted when you acknowledge there are no cash registers or night deposit-drops on an ecommerce website design. Instead, these features must be incorporated into the designís capability. Whether the site is selling artwork, books, music or services rendered, there must be a functionality that allows users to not only add the items to a virtual shopping cart, but also total up the final price including shipping. At that point, payment should be rendered or the ability to render payment should be available.
Many ecommerce website designs do not limit their payment acceptance to just credit or debit cards, but also feature a way that customers can pay by check or money order. The power of plastic aside, the ability to accept a check over the phone or an address to send a check to is still the preferred choice for many Internet shoppers. Discounting these options discounts an entire class of Internet shopper.
So what goes into the ecommerce website design to increase the functionality of accepting payments over the Internet?
