Do you have a business with a physical location that allows customers to come in and shop or hire you for services? Perhaps you would like to set up a website so that you can increase your customer base by allowing your customers to interact with your business online in order to eventually make some type of purchase.
You can always start with a free website service so that you are not spending a lot of money before you really get started. Your website should have an “about” page as well as pages that list your products or services in detail. Images are always helpful as well. Don’t forget to add a way for customers to contact you either by email, a contact form, or even a business phone number.
Choose a name for your website that makes the nature of your business obvious. For instance, rather than naming it “Bob’s Site”, you might name it “Bob’s Plumbing Service” so that the search engines can see the nature of your business. It is always helpful to have a blog as well so you can share events, tips, and other information while you direct traffic to your site.
Of course you also have to set up payment gateways if you are going to be accepting payments online. Payment gateways allow your customers to make payments using an electronic check, credit card, or debit card. Setting up payment gateways through VPS will allow for ease of processing so that you do not have to worry about collecting payment. You simply fill the orders as they come in and let the website speak for you and your business.
Keep your site up to date and active. You might even want to post reviews of your products or services so that people know what to expect from your company when they place an order on your site.
Using payment gateways is a great way to securely accept and process payments on your E-commerce web site. Vision Payment Solutions can easily tailor a payment plan for your business. Contact us today!
