we’ve done some e-commerce sites.
But e-commerce is a lot more than buying some software at
Business Depot, and presto, you’re in business.
You need to think about how the stock list
is going to be maintained on your site? How will the orders
be processed? How will the money will be transferred from
your customers to you? Do you have your own merchant account?
Are you already set up to accept credit cards? What if someone
wants to pay by cash, cheque, or money order? Can your online

Who is going to handle customer inquiries
and complaints? Oh yeah, and who is going to ship the orders?
We’re not trying to discourage you, we just

call. We’ll help you sort it out.
