Shopping Cart Hosting


Adding a shopping cart to your e-commerce website helps maximize your businesses earning potential because it allows customers to buy products and services from your business. Both large and small businesses use online shopping carts to do business far beyond the reach of a traditional bricks and mortar store. Without shopping cart hosting your customers cannot make purchases online and must call you on the telephone or send an email to place orders.

Free or Fee
Web hosting companies frequently offer shopping cart hosting as a free feature with a basic website package. If you have a large customer base and lots of purchases made on your website, the free version might not suit your needs. Instead, you can upgrade to a paid version by purchasing shopping cart hosting from independent companies. The rates for this service vary and may increase depending on how many products you offer and the amount of traffic on your website.

Getting Started

To get started with your new shopping cart you have to decide which items or services you want to sell to your customers. A business on a limited budget with a paid shopping cart host needs to select products carefully because the price you pay may increase in relation to how many items you feature for sale. Once you select your products, organize them into categories so it's easier for your customers to find and buy them. Pictures and descriptions of each item represent an essential component to maximizing sales with your shopping cart. High-quality pictures and well written descriptions increase your websites credibility.

Customers need a way to purchase the products you want to sell. As an e-commerce site, you must decide which methods of payment you want to accept. The cost of online payments to your business depends on the services you choose. This fee is typically a percentage of the sale, but you might also find a plan offering a flat rate per purchase which is good for high ticket items. Your shopping cart hosting provider may offer credit and debit card acceptance programs, or you can choose one independently to suit your needs.
