Ecommerce Websites Portfolio
Ecommerce refers to the sale of products through a website, increasing the reach of shops and enabling small producers and crafts-people to sell cheaply. The products may be physical objects that can be sent in the post, or digital downloads of images or music.
Applegreen provides ecommerce facilities through WooCommerce, a WordPress plugin. WooCommerce enables the website owner to display their products neatly and succinctly, together with the detailed purchasing information. It also creates customer basket and checkout pages as well as a seamless integration with Paypal through which the customer can pay, by Papal or by card.
WooCommerce is a free plugin but has many extra paid features. For example, images for sale can be protected with a watermark provided by an extension to the plugin. Another extension allows for the personalisation of products with an engraved or written message. Another presents music files as protected samples to prevent illegal downloads.
Products can also be listed by category, making them exceptionally quick and easy for customers to find.
