What are the Types of Ecommerce Websites?

Ecommerce websites greatly increase a company’s reach. Customers are able to research and purchase products from companies around the world. With just a few clicks, they are able to make purchases from their own home.

The two types of ecommerce websites are listed below:

  • Vendor-Specific Websites
  • Multi-Vendor Online Marketplaces

Vendor-Specific Websites

This is the most common ecommerce website. They are designed and run by a single business who is the sole seller on the site. Companies who create and manage their own website have the ability to brand their space. It allows them to promote and sell their own products and services. It also allows them to use various digital marketing strategies such as SEO, or search engine optimization. This allows your specific company to rank higher in search results which drives more traffic and customers to your site.

Multi-Vendor Online Marketplaces

This type of ecommerce site brings together products and services from various businesses. Some of the best-known examples of multi-vendor online marketplaces are below:

  • Amazon
  • eBay
  • Alibaba

What is Ecommerce Web Development?

Web development for an ecommerce site needs to involve designing a prototype. This prototype needs to do several things:

  • Bring in Customers
  • Generate Conversions
  • Allow POS for Customers

It is important the website look and feel the way you want it to. This is the first impression customers will have of your company.

Key Components to Ecommerce Web Development

While there are many considerations to be made during development, these steps are key:

  • Have a Plan
  • Choose Domain Name
  • Create a Layout
  • Code Your Website
  • Optimize Functionality

MacRAE's has been an amazing partner to Pathway Communications for its digital marketing efforts. There we worked with Sakshi who was our Account manager. We have nothing but great things to say for her! She is extremely thorough professional and responsive to any requests we may present. She has the required expertise and experience in the digital marketing space which helped us in getting the desired results. Her team has helped increase our organic sessions on our website with continual month over month increase. Our keyword rankings have increased and we have seen so much more traffic to our website. We cannot thank them enough for all of the hardwork and effort put in to making Pathway's digital presence felt.
