If you sell a range of products, you may be interested in getting a fully functioning e-commerce website so you can sell online. With an e-commerce website you can update your stock, add new products, change prices, quantities and delivery all as part of the monthly package price.
We create you a platform and a control panel using the latest software from which you can update and maintain your online store. You can take payments online, highlight products, run advertising campaigns and everything you would expect to be able to do with an online shop.

Most e-commerce solutions will allow you to take payments via Paypal. Linedot Web Design can set you up with a Paypal account. Payments from customers are placed into your Paypal account from which you can withdraw to your own bank account/s as and when you please meaning you don't need any special services.
PayPal charges sellers a fee of between 1.4% and 3.4% on the total sale amount plus 20p per transaction. The fee depends on how much you sell so the more you sell, the less you pay.
If your products are relatively fixed we can create you a bespoke commerce page on your website for an even smaller monthly cost that still enables you to take payments via Paypal but without the 'frills' of the full e-commerce packages or the ability to update the product list yourself as and when you need.
E-commerce sites are a totally different style of website. They run on xml rather than HTML and thus all other package options/extras are usually void - the cost of the e-commerce site includes everything on it. A standard sized e-commerce site from Linedot costs a one off setup fee of £479 followed by an affordable weekly cost of £4/week. You should not go for an e-commerce site unless you are prepared to substantiate it with a marketing campaign. If this is not for you, try our order forms. An e-commerce site can be integrated into your current website or as a separate part of a new website at the same price.
If you are a large company and need a truly expansive e-commerce platform then you're looking in the region of £1,000-£5,000 plus a £30/week fee.
