Basic Questions to Ask Before the Right Software
Before you buy your Ecommerce development
platform, you should revise your business plan (which is essential when starting a business) and find out what specific tools will have to contain the Ecommerce web site development solution you choose. Afterwards, based on your specific needs just ask the salesperson regarding the following matters:
Is technical support, by telephone, being provided 24/7? What other tools are included in the Ecommerce development offer such as web analytics, hosting or accounting software? Does the Ecommerce website development platform offer help with cross-selling or up-selling? Has the Ecommerce website development platform included or built-in site search? If yes, what tools will I need to be able to influence the search engine result pages (SERP)
When the shopper picks out an item from the page, which is the total number of pages he/she must click through to carry out the purchase? (The higher the number of pages, the higher will result the percentage of the abandoned shopping carts.)
Site Building Questions:
What is the product quantity that your Ecommerce development software will allow me to display: dozens or thousands? Does the software come with a wide variety of templates, so that I can choose the one that suits my business best? If I decide to hire a HTML expert to improve the Ecommerce website design and structure, will custom-written HTML pages interfere with the software? Does your Ecommerce website development solution generate both static and dynamic Web pages? (The static pages are written using HTML and are more likely to be recognized by search engines; while dynamic pages are designed when a shopper requests them, and allow you to present more easily a large catalog of items.)

Does the system include a method for tracking coupons and special offers which are required by me?

Shoppers often create their own list of items and this increases the sales level.
Questions about Merchant Administration Tool:
How does the notification system work? How am I going to be notified regarding new orders? (This matter is important because some systems send e-mails and other work using a Web Interface.)
