Put simply, an eCommerce website is one that uses the Internet to trade or sell products. More than 95% people now shop online, meaning that the websites they use need to be safe, reliable and easy to use.

With Black Friday sales dominating the Internet this week, what should you look for when choosing to use an eCommerce site?

  • A secure browser
  • A safe link to your bank
  • A simple process to select and pay for your order.

The better the process, the more people will use your site.

Take Amazon for example…

It is easy to see what is in your basket, and to continue onto editing your basket, proceeding to the checkout, or continue shopping.

Once you go through to place your order, you are asked to sign in. This proves that Amazon has a secure server, stores customer data and maintains a simple process to allow easy payment and delivery data.

To help you stay safe this festive season as you do your Christmas shopping online rather than battling the crowds in town, HeX Productions have a lot of experience in working with difference eCommerce sites.

We have worked with CombiBlind, Game Access by LEPMIS, and Oxjam to provide a platform where our clients can sell and deliver their products to their customers. We use a system called Sucuri for website security, malware scans and additional firewalls, and ensure the each site we produce has an SSL certificate; an integral part of website security. When you visit a website with SSL the certificate enables you to encrypt the data you send, such as credit card information, names and addresses so that it can’t be accessed by hackers.

Is this something you or your business need help with? Get in touch with us today to set up a meeting.
