eCommerce (Shopping Cart System) Install & Setup

Think of an eCommerce system as just extra functionality added to our Base Build Website.

This generally includes:

  • Store Setup - Company configurations
  • Styling shopping cart to template (Company colours & theme)
  • Checkout process
  • Image display enhancements (e.g. image zoom & popup)
  • Attributes/Features setup (an attribute example would be variation in colour & size)
  • Payment integration (PayPal, Direct Deposit & *Offline Credit Cards processing)
  • Shipping integration (Australia Post, Store Pickup)
  • Up to 8 products to test display & categories (client add all remaining products)
  • Tutorial documents on shopping cart system

* Online credit card payment gateways are an extra cost as they require considerable time in setup, configuring & testing.

E-Commerce FAQ's

How long it would take to build an E-Commerce site?

Usually about a month. It’s like building a house, the wall and roof (site & template) go up quick but the interior (information and products) is the slowest, plus there is a lot of behind the scenes work that still happens while the site is live. We have completed E-Commerce sites in a few weeks and some a few months (depending on the client’s speed at getting the information to us).

How much would it cost for the Domain Name, Hosting & E-Mail?

Usually around $300 - $400 per year.

Are there any maintenance costs?

All products and information would be edited by you the client (tuition can be supplied). Any site layout & template modifications are usually done by the designer. Once you start to get used to the workings of the website, there will be no maintenance cost until you decide to upgrade the look of your site or add extra functionality.

  • Install, setup, styling & configuration of new components, plugins & modules
  • Site template upgrades
  • Joomla version upgrades (1.5 or 2.5 to latest)

The key benefits to undertaking an upgrade for your Joomla 1.5 or 2.5 sites are:

  • A significantly improved responsive layout across all devices (mobiles, tablets & PC’s) and platforms
  • Increased security features – this is more important than it appears on the surface, and is one of the main drivers behind any upgrade
  • The existing Joomla version 1.5 is now discontinued so future updates or enhancements will require specialised programming, therefore costing more $$$ to update content
  • New visual template – your website will get a refreshed look to keep up with the trends of website development
The time frame of the support package is for one (1) year from purchase date or until the allotted hours run out. Packages do NOT automatically renew yearly.
