London Web Design

eCommerce explained

E-commerce can be described as any kind of online trading – whether it’s selling products, selling services or accepting payment for bookings. Any eCommerce transaction begins at the website, is processed through integrated back office systems and is then delivered to the customer via an appropriate delivery method.

The most important factor in conducting effective e-commerce is your website. A true ‘e-tailer’ will have a dedicated site developed by a London web design agency, rather than just trade through third parties like Amazon and eBay. The engine room behind the eCommerce web site is the CMS, which stands for Content Management System. This allows you to alter all the details of your products, add new products and manage your orders within the system. Any professional London web design company will be able to implement this for your business.

But the real advantage of e-commerce is in convenience. It’s handy for customers when your store to be open 24/7 and it’s an essential tool for you to have total control over stock and ordering. You can also use your eCommerce website to interact with customers for useful feedback.  Newsletters, blogs and engaging in social media like Facebook or Twitter can keep you in touch and ahead of the game.

Many London web design companies are experts in creating solid and easy to use e-commerce solutions. These can be extended with bespoke modules to create your ideal business management system. The tools and techniques for effective eCommerce are improving all the time. Every company with ambition should be taking advantage of the eCommerce explosion happening right now.
