John Lennon once said that life is what happens when you're making other plans. I must confess that when I started Net Quality Web Design I had no plans to create an ecommerce website. It seemed to be an area of web design beset by complexity and pitfalls.
However, it became very clear very quickly that there was a great demand for this type of website and here we are more than 5 years later with an immpressive portfolio of online shops and more. I have learned much over these years not only about how I should design an ecommerce website and what features are available but I have also been on a journey with the customers as they enter unknown territory and learn on the hoof how to make a success of an ecommerce website.
So in the beginning we claimed to be experts in the creation of ecommerce websites, this was true but only from a technical point of view as we have many years experience in creating database driven applications. And now, five years on we can make this claim from a very real point of view because we have learned what works and what does not work in terms of selling products online.

I cover this and many other subjects in the guide which I hope not only helps you in creating your website but also helps you avoid some of the potential pitfalls.
