Website Design and Development Proposal<br />Product Information Preparation<br /><ul><li>How is your product list available?There are many ways to download your product list into your new site, but not all the ways are they best way. Importing the product into the site for the first time can be time consuming, but how much product, how it is saved and available makes a big difference on the price we will quote to you. For example, if you have 100 products and only have them saved on a list somewhere, there are two ways to enter them; One, you enter each product by hand – you save money but it is tedious work or Two, we enter each product by hand. This is very expensive for you and really a poor consumption of our time. Let’s face it, both of us would rather get your site up and running as soon as possible and entering product eats valuable time. A much better and faster way to upload your product the first time is by having it on an Excel spreadsheet for example. If you do not use Excel, no worries, we are happy to work with you on a method that works best for all of us.</li></ul>SAMPLE<br />

Our full shopping cart includes customer or member email order confirmation capability, encryption of Passwords and Credit Card numbers in the database, the client can see the shipping estimates before ordering, Shipper integration such as UPS or FedEx, your customer can come back later and pay and there is a “save cart” functionality. There is support for tax-free customers, and you can Assign additional login to the admin for staff that can't modify the store's configuration settings. Call us for a tour of the backend (admin area) of a shopping cart.</li></ul>A note on payment gateways. Wikipedia states: A payment gateway is an e-commerce application service provider service that authorizes payments for e-businesses, online retailers, or traditional brick and mortar. It is the equivalent of a physical point of sale terminal located in most retail outlets. Payment gateways protect credit card details by encrypting sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, to ensure that information is passed securely between the customer and the merchant and also between merchant and the payment processor. BottomLine. You need some way to take money online securely. We do not contract with any gateway companies but we can recommend some of the better gateway companies that we most often. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payment_gateway<br />
Website Design and Development Proposal<br /><ul><li>Shopping Carts and SSL CertificatesIn order to provide a secure checkout process for your customers you will need to purchase a SSL or Secure Sockets Layer Certificate. These certificates are available from many companies online and must be purchased by you. Again, we do not contract with any SSL provider companies but we would be more than happy to recommend the companies we use most often. Once you have your payment gateway established, we are more than happy to help you set up both the payment gateway and SSL certificate.</li></li></ul><li>Website Design and Development Proposal<br />Just another Component to your site…<br />Administration Area of your shopping cart.<br /><ul><li>Several utilities to test and troubleshoot your installation.</li></ul>• On-Screen help is available for most functions.<br />• Easily manage Products, Categories, Options, Customers, Shipping, Locations, Orders and much<br />more.<br />• Upload Product Images and Software Items from your browser to your web server.<br />• Store shipping rates are calculated by order weight and/or price.

You make changes, add, delete, etc all from this area.<br />This is included in the price quoted for your website project!<br />Sample of “Document Page” not a “Product Page” but your admin area will be very similar.<br />
Website Design and Development Proposal<br />Testing and Implementation<br /><ul><li>Making sure it all fits together – that is Testing and Implementation. After your site is complete, we run a series of “test runs” or trial purchases to make sure all components are working correctly.
