Don’t spend too much on technology; in fact, there are lots of eCommerce platforms and shopping carts available at low cost.
A ready-made solution is the best choice. Some of the eCommerce development platforms that fit all your requirements are Magneto, Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce and more.
Personally, I recommend Shopify as a platform to create an online store. It is easy to use, manage, full customization, less expensive and trustworthy platform for beginners.
Since the eCommerce store can’t accept payments online, store owner needs a payment gateway to accept money through credit and debit cards.
Payment Gateway is the best and easy way to transfer money from a customer’s account to the merchant’s account.
Use of hosted eCommerce solution is the best choice; it allows payment gateway integration with the store.
There are too many options available like PayPal, Braintree, SagePay, Authorize.net, Amazon Payment and more.
But, make sure your payment gateway processes transaction fastly, securely and provide multiple payment options.
Once you’ve launched your store online, you will need a strategy to attract customers. To drive traffic to your store, use SEO, social media, banner ads, pay-per-click advertising and blogs, and emails.
