E-commerce website

  • R10,000R20,000

This is the price for a set-up of an online shop. The final price will primarily depend on the size of your catalogue, on required customization, and any additional features. For example, a basic e-commerce website on a dedicated platform, such as WooCommerce, Shopify, Magento, Wix, will take a minimum of 100 hours to set-up, whereas bigger web shops can take up to 200 hours to set up. That is when using purpose-built e-commerce software; if you want to use custom solutions, the set-up will be even more pricier. The average cost of an e-commerce website is R15,000, or typically between R10,000 and R20,000.

Specs as requested. There are 2 websites which I require quotes on. The first is a service provider to me, a physical trainer. It is “simple”. The second is for , this is my new company, and. It has more pages; finding the right images and theme are not quite “copy and paste” – the designer will need to think. Website ❶- a “virtual” physical trainer/ness Coach (4 pages including landing) Website ❷- a “Get Help” information portal and referral service for my individual and employer group clients (7 pages including landing) Use a premium template, have a library of stock and pro photos for images – I don’t have time to do that. Need a price , turn-around, amount of time you will give per day. I have text content (it will likely have to be shortened). PS: The last attachment is the first logo draft a designer did, its very generic – I am only using it currently, because I have nothing else. Michael

I need a Website that will be able to accommodate my small Self Catering Guest Cottage, My books I have published, My Oil on canvas paintings, A small home canning industry and space to grow into some additional projects. All under the name of "Atara". As I am a writer I would also like a blog as part of the website. It must be a place that can grow with me and easy to upload stuff on my own and of course a support structure. I do have a small emblem and specific colors I want to be used as my branding on the site. The emblem would have to be fine tuned to come across as artistic, but professional with a PDF for me to then use it as part of my day to day correspondence. I am currently working overseas and will only be reachable via Whats app or email. I do not have a Facebook page, but would open a page and then incorporate it into the website and vica versa
