What Are Your E-Commerce Best Practices?

If you are delving into the e-commerce world with your website development, it is imperative not only havea set of best practices, but also to communicate that set of best practices to your customers.

What are these so-called “e-commerce best practices?”

One example is a clear description of the terms, including returns and refunds.  If you don’t make this information clear to your customers, it could result in costly and time-consuming chargeback.  Not only that, but you could also lose your e-commerce privileges from Visa and MasterCard.

You should clearly spell out your terms and policies on an easy-to-find page on your website.  If nothing else, it’s the right thing to do for your customers. After all, handling disputes with unhappy customers is never fun, and anything you can do to avoid these disputes is a good idea.

Another benefit (although certainly not the last one) of having some e-commerce best practices is that you will incur lower development costs.  Why does this occur?

For the same reason any explicit plan of action helps lower costs.

When you know what you’re doing and where you want to go with your e-commerce solution, you will be able to implement your e-commerce web development even more efficiently and cheaply.
