How much should I expect to pay for an e-commerce Wordpress website?
I know I want to launch a new e-commerce Wordpress website but have no idea how much this costs. How much should I expect to budget out for this? I'd like it to be SEO and a fairly custom template.
You won't likely find a terrific designer, developer, and SEO in one (and if you do, please refer them to me - I have a great job for them).
My best recommendation would be to go with a hosted e-commerce platform instead of WordPress. Something like Shopify or BigCommerce will be a lot easier to learn and use for a novice user. Sysadmin & security alone will be a huge headache for you with WordPress, and that's before you get to things like SEO.
It all depends on a lot of factors, I don't think someone can tell you the price here. I would recommend you to contact the specialists from https://weblium.com for this purpose. Tell them what you need and they will give you a quote for your project. Hope you will find it helpful, good luck ;)
You can hire a WordPress developer and ask him download a theme from https://www.templatemonster.com/ website. There are great Black Friday discounts now on templatemonster website. So be sure not to miss this opportunity.
I'm a huge fan of WordPress. It's the most user-friendly and flexible platform of all times. If to use professionally designed wordpress ecommerce themes , the process of establishing one's own website is rather enjoyable than daunting. I have built three websites in such a way - two for myself and one for my friend. All of them look professional.
It really depends on your requirements, functionality of the website, how much time it will take to deliver the website, the type of production support that you require and so on.
And if you're looking for an experienced eCommerce developer and SEO expert , you can get in touch with Openwave.
Well it depends on various factors like cost that programmers and developer will charge, cost of payment gateway, domain and template you will incorporate with your website. I also agree with the most of the members as they are suggesting cost around $1500. Although this estimated cost is not like unchangeable truth as it may vary according to your website’s quality and its extent. In addition level of programming and type of template you are going to use will also affect your cost too much. Although there are several designers too those allow their designed theme download free and use commercially. One such example you see at http://www.freshest.com/view-post/The-Very-Helpful-Oscommerce-Templates. Best of luck.
Hi jen, I presume that what you are looking forward is to develop an online business with an idea in mind. I understand that cost is an important factor to start a business but more important is to draw a revenue model, Define MVP(Minimum viable product) and then consider the cost of MVP to start with. Because more often, when you start thinking about revenue model, an online business tends to change the requirements and accordingly the cost estimate will vary and that creates issues for you on later stage. So, my suggestion is to be clear with revenue model and MVP and then technology solutions provider like us can help you bring your idea to life. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.
I would charge about $7500.00 for a full e-commerce site, well designed, optimized, and with valuable content. Including blogs and full social media setup.
Skip the SEO for now. How extensive of an e-commerce site are you looking to create? Cost? minimum would be $10.00 per year depending. If you are talking very extensive, then I would not use wordpress as the base. Also, it would seem clear you have never built a website, so you have to ask, who will own the work you hire out to do? When you want updates, fixes or upgrades, are you willing to pay for those? it's amazing how many people think you pay some kid one time and then kill them on constant changes and updates you think should not cost anything.
I refuse to build sites for anyone anymore because of these issues. Even though clearly spelled out in advance in contracts, people have unreal expectations for what they think they want. Drive someone crazy and your costs will be unreal as in the work will never get done or the person will increase your costs as you drive them nuts.
The work isn't hard, just time consuming. Anyone can do it but most won't. Learn some of the basic skills yourself first and then determine what you are willing to ask someone else to do and hire them based on fair pay for fair work.
