Selling On-line

Integrate Your Custom Website with Online Shopping Sites

If you already sell your products in other stores like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Shopify, Squarespace, etc. - or prefer to utilize one of these e-commerce platforms instead of setting up a web store on your site - you'll definitely want to integrate these links into your website.  Main pages, product pages, and landing pages from your website should be launching pads to sell your products and services. 

To compare these e-commerce platforms (and some others), see "Sick of eBay?  Try the best alternative places to sell in 2020" by Gina Broom at Salehoo.com.  Or see the next section to consider owning your own store.

Custom-designed on-line stores & malls, e-commerce websites

Or just contact us to set up your free initial consultation!  We'll do the research/leg-work needed to find the best solution for YOUR business' products and/or services, and what will integrate most easily and effectively with your current business processes and order fulfillment.

Integrate Current Payment Processing with your Website

If you already have a Merchant Account (accept credit cards), we can integrate it into your shopping cart. This requires a payment gateway; we typically use Authorize.net. 
If you have a PayPal™ account, we can set this up to be your main order and payment processor or as an additional alternative in your shopping cart.

Sample: SpankysDogs.com - "Send Deposit" link

Selling Online with
Your Own Store on Your Website

If you want to promote your OWN BRAND, increase your profits, and build a business that will become a long-term asset, setting up your own custom online store will create a more professional and competition-free shopping experience for your customers.  Not only do you determine the products and services offered, your website and store can be fully customized and integrated with YOUR policies and management.

Affordable Custom-Designed Websites and Online Stores

Shopping Cart/Catalog

With McDel's Web Power Hosting, there are over 25 open-source shopping carts that can be installed directly from the Softaculous Apps located in your control panel.  Some of the most widely used solutions are:

  • Magento
  • PrestaShop
  • OpenCart
  • CubeCart
  • osCommerce
  • Zen Cart

Each e-commerce shopping cart includes an administrative interface for configuring and managing your store.  You can design, install, configure, customize, update, and manage your store, or we can do it for you.

With McDel's Web Power Hosting, you can also install proprietary shopping cart software via your control panel.  If you prefer to not use an open-source program, we recommend ClickCartPro - minimal software cost - and if you choose to host your store elsewhere, you still own the software, your files, and can transfer your shopping cart.  Call for current software and installation pricing - 970-208-3348.

WordPress Online Stores

Easiest solution for DIY'ers!

If you're using a CMS (Content Management System) like WordPress, you install a "plug-in" via your CMS admin panel instead of installing a "program" on your web server.

WooCommerce and Shopify are the most popular e-commerce plugins for WordPress.  But there are several other options as well.

What you are selling can help determine which shopping cart solution is best for YOU. 

MemberPress is designed for businesses and organizations selling memberships.  Easy Digital Downloads allows you to easily sell e-books, and other digital content than can be downloaded.

WP eCommerce, Big Commerce, 3dCart, and PayPal plugins are some of the additional plugins available to provide online shopping on your website.

Security, Privacy, SSL...

Comodo Trust SealMany websites need to provide secure transmissions, not just on-line stores. If you are collecting any personal data, financial data, etc., be sure that you visit www.ftc.gov for more information on US laws regarding privacy.
If you have your own web store on your site, most merchant accounts require that your website is periodically scanned for PCI-DSS Compliance.
Some search engines will rank pages delivered via SSL higher than sites that don't have a secure certificate.

What is a Secure Certificate?
McDel Publishing is a Comodo Official SSL Partner

Secure certificates are issued by a CA (Certificate Authority) after they have verified your business credentials. McDel offers Sectigo™ or Comodo™ Secure Certificates.

What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer protocol) is a standard for transmitting confidential data over the Internet such as credit card numbers or personal information. Most legitimate US business sites support this feature to comply with federal regulations. Additionally, your secure certificate (guaranteeing SSL connections) gives consumers and customers confidence in the security of their data being transmitted online, and in the credibility of your business.

What about that green bar?

EV SSL certificates (EV=Extended Validation) provide eMerchants with the ability to reassure site visitors about the verifiable identity of a site. EV SSL certificates deliver improved customer security by providing important trust information, unavailable in other SSL certificates, including:

  • Business identity confirmation using a new green indicator in the address bar
  • Access to further trust information in the URL including the credentials of both the site owner and the Certification Authority that verified the information in the certificate

The result is that consumers can be confident that they are on an authenticated site and not a phishing site, which increases consumer confidence and raises conversion rates for the merchant.
