WooCommerce is great for all types of carts, but, is definitely the best choice if you are just selling a small number of products.
Below is some generic information about e-commerce and secure web pages and shopping carts. If you have specific questions, please let us know.
Question: I see that on your page it says free shopping cart. Does this mean free credit card orders or is this something different?
It means that we include a free shopping cart program that you can customize for your needs. It also means that we include a FREE SSL certificate for a secure web site that meets the newest search engine requirements fof SSL.
We include a FREE domain validated SSL certificate with our BestWebHost.com web hosting.
You would need to be set up to take credit cards online or you can process offline. BestWebHost.com is not a bank and we are not credit card processors – this must be established with a bank or online card processing system.
(If you need a merchant account or an online card processor, Best Web host would be happy to recommend a great processor!)
Paypal is also a choice for fast start up with no monthly fees.
If you already have a merchant account that is definitely a great start. if you want to process online in real-time, It is best to find out what shopping cart your merchant account can work with.
Before you pick a processor– if you do not already have one – your best choice is to pick a shopping cart and see what processor/gateways work with that shopping cart. We recommend Prestashop and we will install the shopping cart software on your web hosting site on the Best Web Host servers at no extra charge.
re: how difficult will it be to design a shopping cart site?
All shopping carts require you to input all pertinent information about your business and your products. Prestashop does come with easy to use, online administrative control panels for easily adding products.
