Online Shopping Solutions
The process is simple to set up using a shopping cart and payment gateway such as PayPal for instance.
We can help you with the concept and scoping of what you are looking to do right through to designing the shop layout, and building the shopping cart and connection through to the payment gateway.
You will receive transactions at any time of the day or night while you are doing other things. Online shopping is easy to do and very affordable.
We see there are 5 main areas to consider when establishing an online shop and Designhand can assist and take the pain out of the process.
- Security - It is very important to go with a secure website solution that doesnt collect the credit card information and processes the transaction behind a secure website environment.
- Payment Gateway Selection - There are a number of Payment Gateway providers on the market and we have researched what the setup and ongoing costs are for each and can put forward a recommendation for your specific need.
- Stock Management - We have a stock management system that once an item has been sold it reduces the online stock available and when the quantity reaches zero the product is set to 'Out of Stock'.
- Shop Layout & Cart Design - We put together a design layout that suits your product range and style that would appeal to your target consumer market.
- Managing Products - We have a customer management interface where you can manage the addition, modification and deletion of products and manage the uploading of images yourself
