Shopping carts are a really effective way for small businesses to sell their goods and services and develop new markets.
Shopping Carts are simply ways of selling your goods and services online.
Shopping Carts can be installed on your own website, in mobile shopping apps, and on other websites too.
To sell your goods and services online you will need a shopping cart software programme and a payment processing provider.
It is also advisable to integrate your online sales with your accounts software too because this will automate entering invoices into your accounts software, which means you don’t have to do so manually.
We currently offer 3 different Small Business Shopping Carts: your own shopping cart website, a Mobile Shopping Cart App and a Facebook shopping cart…
Our Small Business Shopping Carts
Shopping Cart Websites
Our shopping cart websites are essentially the same as all the websites we build, the only difference is that our shopping cart websites include a shopping cart so you can sell your products and/or services online and collect payments too.
How to calculate the cost of a shopping cart website
1. Go to our websites page and work out how much your website (excluding the shop) will cost.
2. Add £500 to that for installation and setup of your shopping cart.
3. Add £30 per shopping cart category.
3. You can add products/services yourself, or if you want us to add them for you, we charge £100 per product/service.
SHOPPING CART WEBSITE COST EXAMPLE
5 Page Website Cost (see websites) = £1000.00
Shopping Cart Installation and Setup Cost = £500.00
3 x Shop Categories @ £30 = £90.00
10 x Products @ £100 = £1000.00
Total Cost £2590.00
Payment processing providers include PayPal, SagePay, Google Checkout and many others. Depending on which you choose, we can even link your website sales to your accounts software, so that your online sales are recorded in your accounts system automatically.
Please Note: We regret, we are unable to add a shopping cart to a website built by someone else. If you have a site built by someone else, you may be interested in our shopping cart apps and facebook shopping carts.
Mobile Shopping Cart Apps
Please Note: This service is not available until June 2012 and is subject to change.
The use of the Internet on mobile devices has sky-rocketed so if you’re serious about selling your products and services online, a mobile shopping cart app is a must. We can create a mobile shopping cart app for you and deploy it in the iPhone App Store and the Android Marketplace.
The costs are:
Price £200.00 (includes submission to the iPhone App Store and the Android Marketplace)
Price £5.00 each
Price £30.00 per month (by Direct Debit)
Facebook Shopping Carts
It is now possible to include an online shop in a Facebook Business Page.
This ‘Facebook Shop’ uses PayPal to process payments and orders.
We can setup a PayPal for Business Account for you free of charge, or you can set one up yourself.
We can setup a facebook business page and install a facebook shopping cart on it for you for £90.
You can then either add the products yourself, or we can do it for you at £5 per product with a minimum of 10 products.
