At Rapid Web, we know that finding the right eCommerce software can be a minefield. So we’ve prepared this guide to help you cut through the jargon and help you find exactly the right eCommerce web design solution for your business.

Step by step, we’ll take you through the pages and features you should expect to find in a typical eCommerce system, explain what they do and guide you through the key points you need to consider.

Planning ahead


Our guide focuses primarily on the anatomy of an eCommerce web design system. It shows you what to look out for, so you know exactly what questions to ask and the issues you need to address when choosing and configuring your online shopping solution.

However, it is important to be aware that the eCommerce system itself is just one of a number of considerations in making a success of your online venture.

For example, just by having an online shopping presence doesn’t guarantee that people will easily find their way to your website. But on the opposite end of the scale, would your business cope if you suddenly had to deal with a massive surge in orders?

In other words, you’ll need to plan ahead with a marketing strategy, both to encourage potential customers to visit your site and motivate them into buying, and preparations to ensure your business is properly geared up to handle orders online.

This is why, when you buy an eCommerce web design system from Rapid Web, we’ll give you FREE business advice on all aspects of setting up an online shopping operation to help you steer clear of the pitfalls and put you well on your way to a handsome return on your investment.
