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.
On WordPress sites, ecommerce facilities are provided through the respected plugin WooCommerce. WooCommerce enables the neat presentation of products and their detailed descriptions. It creates customer basket and checkout pages and seamlessly integrates a Paypal interface, through which the customer can also choose to pay 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.
Applegreen has now added Shopify to its portfolio of ecommerce platform options.
