Ecommerce Web Design

I mainly work with WordPress for Ecommerce website development but also have experience in Magento. I can take care of everything you need to get you online and selling. I am capable of handling any online shopping project in WordPress and we can provide solutions to integrate with 3rd part software like CRM, Accounting and Shipping.

There are always things to consider when you start selling online and the precautions and policies that need to be right from the beginning before you can even begin to think about trading.

Secure Passwords

This is the number one important thing to consider when it comes to security, no matter what type of site you have. If your passwords aren’t secure, your site isn’t. You have to make sure your site’s credentials are complex to guess, long and strong enough. You also have to make sure that your users also use strong passwords. You can force your registered users to use long, complex passwords via plugins.

Secure Checkout/SSL

SSL certificates, or HTTPS, ensures that the data transferred is secure and encrypted. This is not enabled by default on any website, the website administrator has to obtain this certificate so that the data users enter on the e-commerce site is encrypted and secure. This ensures safety of the user’s data as well as earns customer’s trust because they know their online shopping is safe and secure. Always look for the green banner in the address bar.

Payment Gateway

Payment gateways are essential as you need this in order to take money online. You do not want to start taking card numbers and dealing with this yourself as PCI compliance would be a nightmare and a huge extra expense you just do not want or need to pay out for.

The user knows that their payment is processed by a trusted partner (PayPal, SagePay, WorldPay) and that your site is reliable to have obtained what is called a PCI Compliance which is required to be able to process credit card transactions.

I can provide customers easy access to payment gateways to avoid all the PCI Compliance around card holder data. I can connect you to over 80 different payment gateways and some of the most popular are:

  • Amazon Payments
  • WorldPay
  • SagePay
  • Realex
  • Inuit
  • Stripe
  • Authorize.Net
  • PayFast
  • PayPal

Let’s work together!
