Building an online shop

Aug 29, 2014

Online retail is a great way for small companies to put themselves in the shop window of the world. However there are concerns with security when we allow people to pay for things online. So how can we have an online shop and sleep safely in the knowledge that it is secure?

Creating an ecommerce element to a website is not something that I will do. It's amazingly complicated and there cannot be any gaps that will allow a hacker to get in. Even if they don't steal anything, just looking around at your customer orders and details is amazingly bad.

Thankfully, there are specialists out there to take care of this for us. An ecommerce site will have two aspects to it. It will have the website giving information etc but it will also have another site that hosts the online store. You may not even notice that you are travelling between both unless you look at the URL.

There is no need to reinvent the wheel when in buying something off the shelf we can be pretty sure that it's been designed with security in mind and has all the features you require from a great online store.

That seamless experience is the great thing about an online shop product. They can be customised to be made to look like your website and hence keep the brand intact.

Examples of popular shopping cart products include the following:
