Can I add ecommerce to my existing website?

Yes, you can!

There are a few ways to go about it, depending on what you are selling and the features you need in your store, from a simple registration form to a robust shopping cart solution.

Ecommerce Features

Tax Calculation
Tax calculation can be tricky if your business has nexus in multiple states. There is software that can do the calculations for you and provide reporting, so you know the correct amount to collect and pay.

Wholesale Pricing
If you are selling to wholesalers or distributors, your returning customers can login to their account and see prices specific to them.

Visitors can add items to a wishlist and return to the store later to add them to their cart.

Quote Request
Don’t have standard pricing? Instead of an “Add to Cart” button, your customers can click the “Add to Quote” button. Their quote request is then emailed to you.

Shipping Methods
Shipping can be calculated based on the products weight, size, or a flat rate per order. Free shipping can be configured for overs over a certain amount.

Discount/Coupon Codes

This is a partial list of features that can be included in your online store. Customizations can also be added. Give us a call for a quick website consultation. We would be happy to answer any questions you have.
