With any chosen ecommerce development platform, a payment gateway must be selected to process the cash and deliver it to your account. Various merchant service companies are so kind as to deliver your money for a small percentage of the transaction and an even smaller transaction fee. Yes, they always get ya one way or another, but are necessary to complete the purchase process.
The payment gateway options are often determined by compatibility with the selected ecommerce development platform. These include big dogs you may have heard of such as:
The best method of selecting your compatible merchant service is to compare your customer purchase patterns to determine which delivers the smallest cost for payment processing in transaction percentages and per transaction fees. We are big fans of saving you money when we design your ecommerce store and last time we checked, none of our customers ever wanted to spend more than they have to!
This is a simple statement that may often elicit a resounding “duh!”, but sometimes the goal of selling products on an Ecommerce Website gets lost. How do we let this happen? It all starts with losing sight of the website design objectives. The greatest offenders often start with slider “stories”. Here is a slider tale to convey this point with an imaginary online lemonade distributor:
“I want 6 sliders on my Ecommerce site home page”:
And so on. Now granted, the pterodactyl idea is pretty cool, but the cost for animation design and royalties to the Governator just may push this project out of budget. This web design plan also assumes that your customer is so interested in the story that they will watch 120 seconds of slider displays, rather than find the product they want to purchase in your online store. The last thing we want to do is distract people from clicking on the lemonade products BUY NOW button, which is what we really want. Where ecommerce site development is concerned, always keep your focus on selling your product.
