As more and more business is being done over the internet these days, its become obvious to many businesses that selling products or services and accepting payments securely via their web site is a must if they wish to maximise their sales.
Selling your products via the internet opens your online shop up to a wider audience and offers the opportunity to do business with customers all over the world without having to leave your home or office.
At DADI - dadi-online we can create a custom ecommerce solution allowing you to add, edit or remove your products or services, interact with your customers, accept payments securely via any of the major online payment gateways and view statistics on which of your products or services are best sellers.
A full ecommerce website will allow you to add, edit and delete your products and content such as text, images or videos.
One of the biggest advantages of an online ecommerce website is that they can be linked into an existing web page, blog, forum or bulletin board, where the content or products on your site can be added by your authorised employees who won't need to understand HTML or advanced web site scripting technologies.
A vast majority of ecommerce web site solutions will link up to an external database which holds all of the data, content or products to be displayed on the web sites internal pages. You can view more information about the online database design solutions provided by DADI dadi-online here.
A web site that uses a considerable amount of scripting to work correctly is usually called a web application. Types of web application include, web blog's, forums, ecommerce web sites and content management systems.
Costs can vary greatly depending on what you require your ecommerce web site to do and which payment gateway you choose.
There is very cheap options with all most no running costs for the first time ecommerce user right up to hugely expensive solutions that can be linked to your merchant bank account and in house accounting software.
Which ever type of e-commerce solution you require we will help you choose the most cost effective solution and advise you on the best payment options to include.
A payment gateway is an ecommerce application that is provided as a service by your bank or other provider. The payment gateway authorises payments and encrypts sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, and address details to ensure that information passes securely between the customer and the merchant.
You can think of a payment gateway as a checkout or till.
With over 100 million users worldwide PayPal is fast becoming one of the most popular choices for accepting payments via a web site. We can integrate a PayPal shopping cart to your existing web site or use the PayPal API to connect to a custom payment script on your site.

eBay is an online auction and shopping web site in which people and businesses buy and sell goods and services worldwide. In addition to its original U.S. web site, eBay has established localised web sites in over thirty countries. eBay also owns PayPal and Skype, amongst online other businesses.
As an online auction site, eBay.com receives around 902 million visitors per year. An eBay Shop allows you as the seller to display all of your items and tell the customer more about your business on your own customised ebay pages. An eBay shop is set up by you (the merchant) and then we create your shops interface and change its appearance so it stands out from your competitors.

With modern advancements in online sales protocols, it has become virtually impossible to fully retrieve someone's card details from an ecommerce site.
When any payment is sent through to a payment gateway the data is both encrypted and transferred using a secure internet connection (https). You can tell when this happens in your own browser as it will display a notification or small lock symbol to acknowledge this.
A full corporate ecommerce solution in most cases will also have its own security certificate which covers it against such activity and also gives that extra piece of mind to its customers.
If a more specialised ecommerce website solution is required we can create you a bespoke ecommerce web site using any of the current web programming, scripting or coding languages such as PHP, ASP, .NET or ColdFusion and link this to either a Microsoft Access database (not recommended for larger sites), a Microsoft SQL server database, a MySQL database or an Oracle database.

Is your web site accessible by over 8 million disabled users in the UK?
If not, contact us to find out how we can help you and your business meet web site accessibility requirements as set out by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA)
Web accessibility refers to the practice of making website's usable by people of all abilities and disabilities. When a website is correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality.
Section III of the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) makes it unlawful for a UK service provider or business to discriminate against a disabled person by refusing to provide any service which it provides to members of the public. As a UK based business you are required to comply if you provide goods, facilities and services to the general public.
Section III of the DDA, which refers to accessible website's, came into force on 1st October 1999 and the Code of Practice for this section of the DDA was published on 27th May 2002. This means that the majority of website's have been in breach of the law for over five years.
