E-commerce

E-commerce process includes good website design, SEO, analytics, credit card processing, etc..

Forrester Research predicts that e-commerce sales will reach 523 billion by 2020 with the number of on-line consumers reaching 270 million.

Screen sizes for mobile devices, and better than ever wireless networks, are driving the online sales.

When you include online browsing and shopping that influences off-line sales, e-commerce has already past one trillion dollars in total purchases!

Mobile devices are being widely used in the B2B market (Not just B2C!). The implications are clear: your website has to be mobile friendly (or better!) or you are going to miss at least 50% of online shoppers and buyers.

Because of the huge significance of mobile in the last few years, it may be worth rebuilding your e-commerce site using a themed platform with built-in RWD (Responsive Web Design) which re-sizes a website’s screen presentation for any size mobile or desktop device. Also it may be worth considering using the e-commerce technology to organize and, perhaps, to better present your products, even if you want potential buyers to “Call or e-mail for current pricing”.
