If your business is looking to sell a product or products online, an E-Commerce solution from Shycon Design will put on the right path to putting your business and products online. What exactly does an E-Commerce Solution entail? It starts with a Shopping Cart, moves on to Security, and ends with Accepting Payments.
Not every business will require the same amount of complexity when it comes to E-commerce. Some businesses only sell one product, while others sell hundreds and hundreds of products. After your initial free consultation, we'll be able to tell you exactly what you'll need to expand your business online.
Online Shopping Cart
A Shopping Cart will allow visitors at your website to add multiple products and quantities to a basket, or shopping cart. Our shopping cart is designed to integrate with each website seamlessly. While there are plenty of shopping cart solutions already available, they tend to be end-all solutions with either too few options, or too many unncessary options.
After a free consultation with Shycon Design, we'll be able to tell you which features we recommend for your shopping cart. It all depends on your business, and the goals you would like to achieve.
If you are planning on selling products on your website, you will need to be able to accept credit card payments. The majority of purchases done online are through credit cards because they offer unsurpassed protection and security for the buyer. Below you will find a list of Shycon Approved Payment Gateways. A payment gateway is basically a service provided by the following companies that allow you to accept payments online. The factor that should influence which merchant you choose should be the pay rate, restrictions, and monthly fee required.
In some cases, your bank may already provide payment gateways to allow you to accept credit cards online. Check with your banker to find out, because you could recieve better rates than online payment processors.
PayPal Payment Solutions
Paypal offers many solutions for businesses that want to accept payments online. It is important to choose the right one to integrate with your web site.
Choosing the Right Paypal Solution
Paypal's different payment solutions can be found here.
- Paypal Websites Payments Standard - This is the most affordable solution, but offers the least amount of options. Users will have to leave your website to accept payments.
- Paypal Website Payments Pro RECOMMENDED - This plan works the same way as the Standard plan, but allows us to integrate the processing right into your web site. This way a visitor never has to leave your web site, resulting in a more professional experience for the buyer.
- E-mail Payments - Allows you to accept payments through e-mail. Does not integrate with a shopping cart, and it is not recommended for commercial web sites.
- Payflow Gateway - (Must already have merchant account) - If you are already accepting credit cards (through another merchant, bank, etc) but do not have online capabilities, this plan will allow you to do so. High Set-Up fee and not required unless you already have a merchant account.
- Additional Payment Option - For businesses that are set-up to accept online payments, but wish to accept Paypal payments as well.
