Design Layout Notes
Normally - £250.00; however a heavily discounted, ‘mates-rates’ 10 page site using one of the graphic design examples would cost £100.00. This would include:
Email Address linked to Website:
You could use an existing personal email account; or if you’d like to have a dedicated business email address, you could use something like a Gmail account, which allows multiple addresses.
If you only want to have one email address linked to your site, then it would be free, but if you wanted multiple addresses it would cost an additional £3.00 per month to Gmail. This would allow you to have multiple business address which could be E.G info@ ….. Or admin@...... Or sales@........
E-Commerce (Selling from your website)
If you would like to sell product from your site, this will be an additional cost to build.
Note: It is not necessary to have this facility on your site in order to sell. You could have customers contact you directly through your website’s ‘Contact Details’. You can then discuss methods of payment directly with the customer. It is also possible to link your site to an Etsy shop.
I would definitely consider getting PayPal, as this is the simplest and fastest method; as well as a being a professional method of receiving payment.
Cost to add eCommerce functionality:
To build this facility on your site would cost an additional £50.00.
To have this facility, the hosting company charge a small monthly fee and a small percentage of each transaction - see below.
There are a lot of different packages available; which can be discussed if you are interested in this facility. This need not be done immediately; it can always be built at a later stage.
These fees are all paid in advance to the secure payment gateway company, and depending on which package, will give options of either 6 months in advance, or one and two years in advance.
Payment system built into site.
The simplest method is to have a PayPal account. Your customer does not need to have a PayPal account to purchase from you. When they come to pay for the product, a notice comes up saying
Would you like to pay with PayPal?
Don’t have a Paypal Account?
Then fill in your card details here etc. ….
I am sure you have all seen similar on sites before.
