Website Development is quite a difficult process. While Developing an E-Commerce website a lot of things are kept in mind. As it is a shopping website, the developer has to make it as simple as possible because various users will be coming to the website and everything they process should be very simple.
While developing an E-commerce website the things to be considered are as follows:
The use of mobile is increasing day by day and lots of e-commerce sales are done via mobile. So, the E-Commerce Website should be mobile responsive that will be a plus point for you to engage more customers. If the website will be mobile responsive then the access to the website will be easy via any device. Whenever you think of developing a website then you should keep your mobile users in mind while developing a site.
SECURITY IS ESSENTIAL:
All E-commerce website must have SSL to secure the data. SSL should not only be used to secure the card and payment details but also to secure the customer's data like phone number, address, and name etc. Customers want their data to be secure when they make online transactions. So that's why SSL is quite mandatory for E-Commerce Website to secure the data of the customers. To meet the PCI Compliance, SSL is required by the business to accept card payments.
The Details of Customers payment should not be stored in the database for security reasons. Storing the payment details on your server is a huge risk. So, SSL is a must for E-Commerce Websites.
A lot of Customers uses search option to find out their product, so it's important to make sure that the search option functionality is working and easy to find. Search autocomplete feature should be available which will help customers to find the popular product with ease.
This feature will allow the customer to narrow their searches by providing a price range, size etc. By this feature, the customer can easily find the product they are looking for. For good results, the descriptions and the details of the product uploaded should be well defined.
OPTIMIZE SITE PERFORMANCE:
The Site performance should be good; it should not take more than 3 seconds to load. If the load time of the website is more than 3 seconds you will be losing about 40% of your customers. Especially you are going to lose the mobile users because they are more likely to switch to a different website if the load time of a website is more.
If you don't want to lose your customer, then make sure that your website is well optimized and the load time of the website is less than 3 Seconds.
