How can I link a third party website to my business website?
I have a Weebly created business website and I would like to link my supplier webpage and items to my personal business page. The hope is to connect them so I have more items for sale on my personal website.
It depends. (Don't you just hate answers like that?)
But it does. How tightly do you need to integrate your supplier's information with your own? This could be anything from having a simple link on your page (lame!) or have data extracts from the supplier's site merged with your own information (e.g. order entry).
Once you find the solution to link a third party website to your business website, please let me know. I would like to give my business link
I agree with what everyone is saying except, Word press is great but I think Joomla is stronger and more secure for shopping carts. If all your images and art work are all to be reused, I could set you up in Joomla with your domain transferred for security for about $600-$800 and I can get hosting for my customers for about $45.00 a year (first year included with new sites) go to wadeswebworks.com and contact me,if interested, however I will not be able to start for about 1 or 2 months I have a lot work lined up now. I would need more info to nail down a contracted price.
A concern that most people have failed to address, does your supplier even allow you to link their website to your website?. You may just alienate your supplier by doing this. You need to check the supplier's website for what they consider best practices. They may not allow others to link to them or you may have to get special approval and explain in advance to them how you plan on linking them in. Offering a plain text link or click here link on a sidebar is usually not an issue. But to link in a full page could buy you more trouble than you want.
Now if you do have permission, look for the infinity icon. A Sideways 8. Then decide if you want to add it in as a side bar link or a main page link.
it's too simple you can just redirect your Weebly website to to your personal business web page or you can do one thing also just done some coding part to addition weebly page to your personal webpage.
Here is the general html code you will need in order to add your supplier webpage or any other items to your personal business page.
Since I am unfamiliar with Weebly, am not sure if this is needed. They may use a drag and drop feature on their builder.
Nevertheless, the code below should work for any website:
Supplier Company Name
Just took a look at your website, you have slightly over 15 pages with more than 70 products to showcase. You might need to spend more than $500.
Hope I have provided you helpful information.
First you need permission from your supplier to link the product page on your website and then you can simply add their products on your website with the help of your CMS and then you can redirect the sales as you want, if you need further help let us know, we can help you out professionally also. Your budget is sufficient to build up a good website with dedicated CMS, kindly contact me through PM for more details.
I'd need more information about your supplier and what kind of API they publish for users like yourself to avail themselves of. I'd guess that they provide an RSS feed that you can customize with a parameterized query. If that's the case, then you could possibly embed the RSS feed into an iFrame on your Weebly site.
Here's a link that explains how to configure RSS feeds in the Magento e-commerce store. Since I don't know the exact technology stack behind your website or your supplier's website, than I can't tell you for sure if this solution will work for you.
It sounds to me like you want to sell items from a distributor on your own website, is that correct?
If that is the case you will need an ecommerce website better know as a shopping cart. Weebly is definitely not the best solution for you.
Taking Lizette's advice will save you a lot of headaches. Also getting the correct solution upfront will save you money. As you probably already know when you use those free tools not everything is free. They nickle and dime you. I have clients who go through the same situation before you know you will spend on little pieces that will never add up to a complete website.
As Lizette said check to see if there is a way to add a link. Also, I'm personally not familiar with Weebly but if it allows for HTML code in the main body then you can create clickable links to whatever website you want your visitors to go.
Hope this helps and if you have more questions message me.
