Our commerce package websites are built upon a database and a shopping cart system. Instead of creating a number of "static" pages, content is served dynamically when the user requests it. Your users can browse through a gallery of products, select one in particular and request additional information. They can choose to add that product to a shopping cart and then either select more products or check out.
The database system contains information and images for all your products. You have the power to add, alter, and delete entries to the product database, and you can give your users the chance to register and log in for special services if you wish. You can control all these functions from a special administration page. The package includes the following features:
- 1 year of domain name registration
- 1 year of web hosting
- Unlimited email address
- Dynamic web pages
- Product galleries with detail displays
- Advanced product searches
- A full-featured shopping cart system
- Email support
- A contact page
- Live site statistics
- Search engine registration
Keystone Websites will register the domain name of your choice and arrange web hosting for a period of one year, including unlimited email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org). When that first year expires, the domain, email and hosting can be retained for a monthly or annual fee.
A dynamic website requires careful planning to ensure that the advanced features work correctly. Site design itself is simplified because less individual pages are required, but those pages must be able to handle the dynamic content. We will work closely with you to tailor the site to your needs, and give you training in how to alter the content of your product and user databases.
Special shopping cart software must be setup and integrated into your site design. Keystone Websites will provide information about merchant accounts so that you can arrange to process credit card payments. Alternatively, we can integrate the PayPal system into your site to handle the credit card transactions for you.
We will create a special contact page for you, so that your customers (or users) can send you comments, before being thanked for their feedback. This method helps to keep your email addresses secret to avoid receiving unsolicited email (spam). When the site is published to the Web, we will help to promote it by registering its existence with major search engines.*
Keystone Websites will provide you with a monthly statistical analysis, and you will be able to access your web statistics at any time. You will learn how many customers visit your site, and from where they came from. This information can help you to tailor your website to your customer. You will be given a special address to email our support team whenever you need assistance, and we can work with you on an hourly-basis to make any revisions or upgrades when it suits you. Our prices page includes full details of our hourly fees.
*Search engine placement cannot be guaranteed, but Keystone Websites will help you decide about paid entries if a higher ranking is desired.
