Unlike those days, today the number of online stores have increased to a greater extent and it has become a very crowded and a competitive market place. Internet has connected businesses and customers together.

 The problem with a lot of people is that, they know how to start an online business, but they don’t know how to get started. This is called an ecommerce solution. Basically there are five solutions that you can follow, to start up an online store.

 The domain name

 Every online store should have a unique web address and it is the very first solution to be considered. Obviously, without a domain name you cannot proceed. Once you obtain it, you are the owner and no one can take that place from you because that would be your home. You may wonder as to what happens to your personal information. Either you can make it available to the public or else keep them private by selecting the private registration when you register the name.

 Shopping cart software

 This covers various aspects such as setting up the inventory, managing customer orders, delivery of products and services, other customer services etc. Generally, it is a bit difficult to choose an ecommerce solution as there are different options exist. May be open source, licensed, or even hosted solutions. What you should do is to figure out what is suitable for your company, rather than allowing the solution to determine your model of business.  

 Web hosting

 Professional web hosting will give you several benefits. If you happen to work with a web hosting company, you will realize that it satisfies your needs such as the space, bandwidth, merchandising etc. Another significant benefit of this would be the availability of 24/7 customer support. For instance, if there’s any problem or technical issue raised by a customer, you can attend to that then and there.

 Web design

 Although the look is not the main thing, this is an important part of ecommerce website development and also something worth taking into account. These websites could be created with an easy to use template on your own, or else by a professional designer it if you want a bit sophisticated one. However, you must keep in mind to make it simple and avoid the excessive use of colours, flash and graphics. If not, it will confuse the users.

 Merchant account

 No matte how creative and attractive your website is, if it cannot accept credit card payments. That may lead to the loss of customers as they expect convenience. Technically, the reason for a person to purchase something online, is to avoid the hassle of going through a physical purchase. Hence, credit card payments should be allowed, otherwise there’s absolutely no point of having an online store.

Got it? Now start working on these things.
