Website Build Price

Hi

Me and my wife have started to run a small business just working from home. We are doing printed mugs and keyrings etc that can be personalised. Anyway, wondering what sort of price should I be paying for someone to build a website for it. Needs to be ecommerce so people can place and pay for orders etc. Had one quote that includes lifetime hosting and it was £649. Is this a fair price, I though it would be cheaper?

Grateful for any feedback

Thanks

Dan

£649 with lifetime hosting is extremely cheap for an ecommerce system. I am guessing you would enable customers to upload images which will be used to personalise their gift.

Could you pm me a link to the site that offers the sites for £649.

If you went to an agency to build you something, you would be looking at £3k+ with the most feature packed being 25k+.

Your budget needs to be nearer £2k+ for anything decent. I can put you in contact with some people who can help you but they will charge the going rate.

Those are the only decent features of the GBBO, a free domain and free emails (through google mail).

The websites are through google sites and are diabolical, and NO way should any business use Google sites for an online ecommerce site.

You need to be on a secure, dedicated server for ecommerce (in most cases, not all) and you need a proper set up to run the site properly.

Google sites is ok for a text based website but not for ecommerce.

I'd go with the start on eBay advice. I know people slate it but it's pretty much everything you need, on a plate.

I've just started an online business, it's going pretty well and I'll spend more time on it in the Summer when I finish Uni. I've got a website being made by a friend from Uni, he now has his own web development firm. He sorted me out with a great site for the right money, I could probably pass you onto him if you're interested. I paid around £500, and hosting fees at his place are minimal.

Let me know.

Ok thank you. I did have a friend who has all qualifications etc building me a site fro free, just needed to host it. He was out of work at the time but now has found a job so no longer has the time to work on it!!
