Ecommerce Shopping Site


  • Are you supplying a product or service?
  • Would you like your customers to be able to see and buy your products or services 24 hours a day, seven days a week?

If the answer is 'yes', then an ecommerce website is the answer for you. And you need one of our ecommerce consultants to help put it together.

Ecommerce Consultants

As ecommerce consultants, we can set up any website to start taking payments online with credit and debit cards. Many organisations already have a website offering products and services for sale but are restricted to telephone/fax/postal transactions.

One of the most powerful benefits of the Internet is the ability to promote and sell your products and services world wide. But even if your business does not supply a product or service globally, you can still dramatically increase sales to your local customers just by being 'online'.

Yes, it is true. You can increase your sales just by turning your website into an ecommerce website.

How do you turn your website into an ecommerce site?
This can be confusing as there seem to be so many options.
If you would like to understand a little more about how it can work, please read on.

The process

  • 1. You need the software added to your site to enable online purchasing.
  • 2. You need a Merchant Account (perhaps with your own bank).
  • 3. You need an Online Authorisation Company to link between your website and your Merchant Account

1. You need the software added to your site to enable online purchasing.
This shopping cart software enables your customer to broach through your site and add items to the shopping cart basket. When the customer is ready, all the items are taken to the checkout where they are accosted. Once the customer agrees to the total price he is taken to the online authorisation company for payment.

2. You need a Merchant Account.
A Merchant Account involves a special type of arrangement with a bank or clearing house that allows you to accept credit card payments into a special bank account (your "Merchant Account"). The results of any credit card transactions are passed through your Online Authorisation Company are then credited to your account.

You can acquire the Merchant Account from your own high street bank, or contact us and we could probably help you.

3. You need an Online Authorisation Company to link between your website and your Merchant Account
The link to your Online Authorisation Company at the point of payment allows your customer to be discretely re-directed into the secure environment of the payment system. Security checks to validate the authenticity of the cardholder information are carried out. Then your Online Authorisation Company processes transactions by requesting authorisation from the appropriate bank and finally obtains confirmation that the bank has cleared the payment. Confirmation is given to your customer. The system can send an email to your customer to confirm transaction.
An e-mail can also be sent to you so that you are kept informed of any orders waiting to be processed. The payment, of course, is already transferring into your bank account.

All you then need to do is processes the delivery of the relevant goods or services.

Thanks for the website Ian.
As you stated, I have had a steady stream of enquiries since setting me up on the internet.
Morning Ian, just a short note to say 'thankyou' for the work on my website. Not only am I pleased with the way it looks, but I could not believe it when I got my first enquiry from it only a few days after its completion. All you said would happen has indeed happened.
Thank you very much for your kind help. It is really a good advice for my marketing plan.

Thanks and best regards,
Hi Ian Just a short note to tell you we have had a very good season, an excellent sales increase so we should be ok now the autumn is here and going very soon into Winter.. . . . . . . . .
Thanks Ian. The website has certainly increased our Bookings and we look forward to next year.
Best Wishes
I am not really interested in getting back in to PPC as it cost a lot of money last time for not a lot of return. We have been without it for over a year and what you are doing is still increasing visits and turnover on the site.

Just a quick note to say I’m very interested in maintaining the website you have completed a marvellous job of so far. We are already noticing a complete change and receiving a lot higher internet inquires.
Thanks Ian
Hello Ian, came across your website via a Google search and wanted to say how impressed I am! The marketing plan template arrived within seconds of my request - it is clear, tremendously helpful and has provided me with the structure I desperately lacked as I prepare to kick off my new business on 1st September! A really super service, am sure I will be in touch again over the coming weeks to discuss other elements of your offer.

Thanks and regards

....... I have also noticed the success of extra clicks! Business is also up by at least 15 percent from last year. Regards

I would just like to bring a ray of sunshine to your day (well it did for me).
Since we started to work with Ian Smith, our Adwords guru, our results have improved impressively. These figures are the average across the board, ..
Our Click through rate has gone from 1% to a very credible 4.5%
Our average cost per click has dropped from 87p to 63p (just remember some clicks are still £2+).
Our average position has gone from 5.4 to 4.6
So all in all a very good result and with further input we hope to do even better.
