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.
Hi Buddy, we are the best in the WP platform, and design firm. that the cost of the WP [e-commerce] are depend upon their level of plan and regulation of frequency productivity.
that the range from 4000 dollar to 6000dollar.
Jen, service prices in Eastern Europe are more affordable. It does not mean you have to make a compromise in quality. Customising a premium template (for example the very flexible Woo Canvas), setting up WooCommerce, SEO and other essential plugins, formatting content up to 10 pages, 3 blog posts, 5 products, creating contact form, photo gallery, connecting your site with your email service provider cost approx. 500USD. Please note, this price does not contain WooCommerce extensions or plugin development if you need custom functions what are not included in the WooCommerce plugin. I think this can be a good starting point for a startup and you can develop your site as your business grows.
Hope you are doing great !!!
WordPress eCommerce featured sites: doesn't cost too much in comparison to other Frameworks or CMSs. Its because it already ready plugins and just need integrate them and customize according to design.
About design and SEO, it also easy. You can also integrate design PSDs directly into WordPress CMS as well as integrate SEO plugins to make it SEO friendly.
As I have good experience in developing WordPress eCommerce site I will quote it less than $1000. It also depends on your design and feature requirement too.
Please let me know if you are interested to do so.
Hi Jen, Purchase WooCommerce with responsive theme, and hire Developer and designer to design it, this can be done with lower amount. Talk to some professional Developer and Designer, hire them and get your product import.
Check Loading and other details from them, Integrate Google analytic, google + local and etc..
See, get quote from SEO and web designing companies...Get with SSL, dedicated Ip and use best server to manage it..
Also use third party Payment Gateway, Including Paypal..
Want a good, branded, customized, editable-by-you, attractive, nimble and functional eCommerce site? Figure $5,000–$7,500, or more, depending largely on you and your ability to sign off on design. Of course a good web designer/developer will build optimize SEO on your site and set you up so you know how to maintain good SEO as you add to the site.
Much like in real estate and 'location' being important, with any website the design is utmost important depending on the purpose and in the case of ecommerce how well the design interacts with the complex back end. I would not recommend generaic WP templates that arent customized beyond looking like other sites.
If you go with an individual freelancer they would likely charge between 5-7 thousand for a professional e-commerce website that is mobile and SEO friendly. This is assuming you are selling multiple products. If you go with a marketing company you can expect to pay 10 thousand and up. This includes security and customization that individuals may not focus on. Marketing companies will also do market research and branding that a freelancer may not have experience in. The long term investment when you get a e-commerce site from a marketing company is well worth what you will get out of it. It all depends on what you want to put into the project and what you want out of it.
There are a number of factors that I consider when pricing a website.
The biggest thing is details or how customized specific each detail is going to need to be. Being able to execute the exact vision of a client is wonderful, but it can make a big difference on cost. From specific placement of objects to the order or the sequence of information being presented, these things can take some serious time of custom development.
Working with startups and small businesses, I've been able to find ways to adjust the scope to their budget.
A completely customized WordPress site running WooCommerce with 20 products and 6 additional pages would likely cost $4000-10,000).
However, if that type of a project wasn't realistic for that business, we could find other solutions such as working from a prebuilt template. This can dramatically reduce the cost to the $1000-$2000 range depending on how much customization would be done to the existing theme.
Jen, The cost will be based on four elements: 1) designers time, 2) the programmers time, 3) the number of pages and 4) How complicated your site / special programs needed. Hourly rates vary by experience, city they live in and if they handle all elements (design & programming) or there are two different people. the article that Nadya referenced is a great starting point for knowledge. With all that in mind, your starting point would be $1500 for a very simple site and the range goes up from there. If you budgeted between $5k and $7.5k for a really nice custom site that is pretty simple to program you should be in the ballpark.
Jen, no matter how many answers you'll get in this thread, I haven't seen anything better about the costs than this article by Brian Krogsgard: http://www.poststat.us/wordpress-website-cost/
Much text there, but it's worth reading it from a to Z.
The content can be actually applied to almost all sw dev projects, when it comes to costs.
One remark: hourly rates in the article are applied to the US-market, in other countries it may vary. F.ex. if you decide to subcontract/outsource it, the hourly rates might be lower.
Hope this helps.
