Which Shopping Cart is right for you?

There are hundreds of different solutions. We find the right one for YOU!

The sheer amount of shopping carts available is mind-boggling: there are hundreds of systems available that work in very different ways:

  • Some carts are simple buttons with code implemented into your webpages. They are good for a few items that rarely change. Payments usually happen via PayPal.
  • Some are stand alone systems that can be attached to your website. Design and layout often differ from your site. Navigation can be confusing.
  • Some are hosted on special servers and require monthly payment. Design and layout often differ from your site. Navigation can be confusing.
  • The ones we prefer have your cart seamlessly integrated into your website. Wherever you are, you will be able to see your cart and check out.

Finding the right shopping cart: many factors have to be considered

Above all it is software: features cannot be evaluated just by reading about them. One has to test drive it in order to see if it works for the specific situation.

We have been test driving countless shopping carts and can help you find the right one for your requirements.

Our specialy is importing a large amount of items with product numbers (SKU), reducing the time of creating the online store.

How to configure Shipping Charges?

One of the most important parts of selling online is calculating and displaying the shipping charges. While many commercials for stamps.com make it look so easy to print a label and put it on the box, selecting an appropriate shipping policy with affordable rates can be a nightmare. Also, visitors do not like to see a surprise at checkout – they would like to see the policy before they shop.

No, stamps.com doesn’t know your item!

Note that stamps.com and its competitors do not know anything about your product – neither weight nor size. You will have to do the research yourself and tell the software what to charge – within the US and internationally.

Examples of shipping calculations are:

  • Free shipping (include shipping in the calculated sale price)
  • Charge a base fee and add a fee by item
  • Weight based shipping
  • Value based shipping
  • A combination of the above

Sedona Website Design has built countless stores with a variety of shipping calculations. We mainly work with WooCommerce and know exactly which plug-in or extension to use for your purpose.
