DEVELOPING YOUR ULTIMATE SALES TOOL
eCommerce Website Design
We build online stores and lots of them! We have experience with WordPress, WooCommerce, and Shopify eCommerce content management systems.
COSMarketing highly recommends using WordPress + WooCommerce when building an online store with less than 5000 products and Shopify with larger product inventories. Don’t pay unnecessary money to other website builders. Build it right the first time or suffer extreme consequences and bottlenecks in the future.
WordPress and WooCommerce Website Design
The dynamic duo of internet sales. WordPress and WooCommerce both work harmoniously together to bring even the smallest on hobbies together for sale on the world wide web.
The first major benefit is price, both of these programs are 100% free to download and use. All you need to pay for is a website domain name, hosting, and SSL. This can cost roughly 120$ a year depending on many options like website hosting speed, bandwidth, etc.
Many other online store builders will automatically start you at $30 + a month and nickle / dime you for added services.
We highly recommend these two paired together to save you on monthly costs and these will support websites with up to 5000 products easily.
Shopify Website Design
Shopify is a major eCommerce toolkit. Hundreds of thousands of people use the platform efficiently. If you’re looking to have a massive website with well over 5000 products (we’ve built some with over 500,000 products for drop shipping clients)
Why use Shopify?
The platform does one thing and one thing only; online product sales. the problem many people find over the years that the software itself relies on a lot of additional features. These additional features require monthly subscriptions.
So if you’re a smaller company just getting started, you’ll find quite a hefty amount of overhead just in your Shopify builder. They will accrue tons of additional monthly costs. We’d prefer you place as much money as you can into marketing your store, not paying website fees.
However, if you’re a big time eCommerce player doing tens of thousands in sales per month, you might want to go this route.
