Building an online shop (or three) with an ecommerce web template
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
Things have been quiet on the blog front recently because we have been working on a few ecommerce websites for several clients.
We use an ecommerce web template which to some people sounds like an easy option. It is perhaps easy to imagine that a template will allow a store to be built in a day or less. That’s not really the case but the templates can allow rapid development of an online shop without too much hassle.
Rapid to us means a few days work but this is very quick considering the shop functionality that is built into the ecommerce web templates. Multiple payment providers, viewing orders, and a website search facility are all set-up in a short time. However, as with any project, it is best to be realistic and allow a bit of extra time for some testing before the store goes online.
Here’s one (we made earlier) showing the storefront areas.
- Information about Product Categories 1
- Product Category links 2
- Two different ways of highlighting Featured Products 3 and 4
- Secondary tabbed navigation for Store Information 5
