The best Ecommerce solutions may range anywhere from $250.00 a month to $1,500.00 a month. Pricing depends upon the number of products you want to sell, the traffic you anticipate and the features and functionalities you want to provide to your customers.

There may be other Ecommerce solutions costs associated with an online store. For example, if you want to be able to accept credit cards and process those transactions online, you will need a merchant account and a payment gateway service. Typically, there are initial set up fees.

Once you place your order online with a credit card, you can start building your store within 24 to 72 hours. This is the time needed to activate your domain name (if it is new) and to spread information around the world about the physical location of your site on the internet. As far as the store going live, that depends on the timeframe we receive the date necessary for the store back-end which includes uploading products, etc. The amount of products needed to be input into the store also makes a difference. Once you start building the site, it doesn’t take long. Sites with just a few products can be set up in less than an hour. For most stores, however, it takes from a few hours to several days. Two weeks is about average for our Ecommerce solutions customers.
