You will probably know that there is not a single answer for everyone. In fact, costs can vary depending on features and functionalities of ecommerce website depending on the technology platform and management requirements. You also have to keep in mind that ecommerce website development Dubai requires continuous investment to improve the functionality and experience of your ecommerce website development Dubai when the initial ecommerce web design Dubai is completed (without including clear marketing budget). It is an indication of a disaster as waiting until your online store is outdated and then considering updating it is not a successful or proactive e-commerce website strategy.
What are the key areas that influence the cost of a development?
Depending on how simple or complex the e-commerce website development platform is and what are the management features and functionality could be integrated into ecommerce website Dubai. Si3 Digital help our clients in design and development of Magento Solutions, Woo Commerce Solutions and customized UNO Shoppe solution depending on the functional requirements of customized solutions for enterprise and plug and play solutions for start-ups and SME’s depending on budget and functional requirements.
eCommerce web design
Many eCommerce Solutions have design galleries, themes or templates available for purchase. These templates are a quick and economical option for start-ups and SME’s to buy a theme & get small changes and customizations (more than just a logo change, but not a custom design). If you want a custom ecommerce website design and development, the cost will depend on what features and functionality you want. Similarly, a custom ecommerce web design can cost from AED 5,000 to AED 350,000 depending on the details, requirements, and depth of the process.
eCommerce website User Experience (UX)
The eCommerce website Dubai user experience is possibly the most important part of an eCommerce web design. As our team of eCommerce UX focuses on the wishes and needs of its potential visitors, to turn them into buyers and paying customers. An intuitive e-commerce web design interface means that visitors are more likely to make a purchase. By helping the visitor to quickly and easily find their desired product, avoiding frustrating mistakes and delays, you will see an immediate increase in sales.
A good eCommerce website UX design focusses on the industry and potential customers on the eCommerce website. The measurement of the effectiveness of eCommerce web UX design is a continuous process, after the initial development and launch.
Custome Commerce Website Development Dubai
Many eCommerce Solutions (such as Magento, or Woo Commerce) provide support for modules or extensions for many functionalities that can be added to your site (at a much lower cost than if a custom development were performed). Therefore, an important part of the eCommerce website development process is to validate if extensions are available for the desired functionalities as this will affect the price. Be prepared, however, for some of the extensions to require some customization. We always audit / evaluate the extensions in terms of quality, security, features, and support before recommending them to our clients. Outside the extensions, the cost of custom eCommerce website developments will depend on the hours of development and testing they require.
eCommerce Web Design (Product Images & Graphics)
The visual elements of an e-commerce web design cost can also vary depending on the requirement as if you would like to use royalty free stock images or would like to purchase relevant images online or conduct photography sessions, such as personalized photography and graphic design work.
However, it is one of the most important elements of the eCommerce development. A visually attractive ecommerce website is much more likely to attract visitors and retain them long enough to become customers than one that is too simple. Images of high-quality products are also essential for a successful eCommerce Website Development. You can use available images to use a designer to optimize the images of the products.
eCommerce Website Development – Management & Maintenance support
Do not forget the ongoing costs of running an eCommerce web development. You will surely need training and support for your site. The cost of maintenance can again depend on the features and functionality of eCommerce website development and Ecommerce Website Development Dubai, depending on the sophistication of its e-commerce platform. However to give you a high-level idea regarding eCommerce Website Development – Management & Maintenance support you can expect to hire a dedicated resource to administrate the eCommerce web design or you may outsource the management and maintenance to Si3 Digital 😉 on an hourly basis.
eCommerce web hosting
Domain Hosting is more predictable. Dedicated Server offers will generally include some level of accommodation in their packages. For stores based on configurable platforms, the cost of hosting is cheap and can grow as your needs grow. You can start with the minimum package and gradually once you requirement and traffic increases you may upgrade the domain hosting to higher end Domain Hosting.
Hosting for a customized e-commerce web development will be more expensive depending on the levels of service and support.
