Why build an ecommerce website?

My first Christmas present of the year arrived on my front porch today. I’m Bill Koehne, owner of Packerland Websites. This Christmas, I am joining millions of Americans who shop online. Ecommerce is booming! In the United States, 15 cents of every retail dollar is spent at an online store. Total retail ecommerce sales for the second quarter of 2020 were $211.5 billion, a 44.5% increase over the second quarter of 2019. (Source)

Make Money Year-Round

Why not cash in on the dominance of online shopping, not just for the Christmas holidays but year-round? It’s not just Christmas shopping occurring online. The Covid-19 pandemic shifted demand from brick and mortar stores to ecommerce websites. Shoppers love the convenience of ordering online and having packages delivered right to their doorstep.

Trust in Bank-Level Security for Online Sales

The beauty of an ecommerce website is its third-party payment system. Sales transactions are super-secure and fully integrated into an ecommerce website. The third party collects, processes, and safeguards all sensitive information against cyberattacks and data breaches. Ecwid, the ecommerce platform used by Packerland Websites, offers the same level of security that is used by banks.

Manage an Ecommerce Website with Ease

If you already have a website, we can easily add an ecommerce store. If you’re building a new website, we can include the store in the initial design. Before the online store opens, we train store owners to successfully manage inventory, sales, and shipping. Ecommerce store owners have the ability to:

ecommerce shipping
  • Customize their storefront
  • Manage their store with ease from one control panel
  • Accept credit card payments
  • Track orders and inventory
  • Automatically calculate sales tax and shipping costs
  • Offer gift cards and discount coupons
  • Organize their products for sale (Packerland Websites uploads the first 3 products at no cost and additional products for a small fee. The store owner must provide product information.)

Exponentially Expand Your Sales Territory

Compared with brick-and-mortar stores, ecommerce stores offer greater flexibility, affordability, and widespread visibility. For the consumer, ecommerce websites are a quick, convenient way to shop. With a click of a button, customers from around the country can purchase your goods.
