Online Store Package - Monthly Cost Comparison


The monthly cost to get you started can very dramatically from vendor to vendor. Many present low package costs but they may not be the only costs. So do not be afraid of shopping around and trying out different solutions and suppliers. The most important thing to do is to ensure that you are comparing similar packages and that those packages will support your business growth.

eCorner provide a number of different levels of packages that vary in price and capability.

Packages are scalable from 100 product and up to 10,000's of products online and we do not count variations products based on different attributes like size or colour. The four most popular packages key difference is the number of products that are for sale on the website although the packages will vary in functionality. These are perfect for small to medium sized businesses. Our online store packages include hosting and data as part of the package. That is not the same with all providers so you should always make sure of the total cost of hosting, data and website.


NOTE: The costs that  are referenced above are derived from the providers website and accurate at the time that the content was created.


Free Themes, Design and User Experience or custom design it's up to you


stylish online shop themes from eCorner


Designing your website can be the most expensive part of the process of getting online. With a Hosted eCommerce Solution like eCorner there are free design themes that you can use through the built-in Design Manager. You can have multiple themes setup for your online store for sales or holiday periods. If you have something special in mind for a custom logo or banner then it might need to be designed by a professional graphics designer. In general we would recommend that you get started with the design themes that are free from eCorner. These are very flexible and you can change colours, add logos and banners.


If you want a special design then we can help by working with you to refine your requirements but take a look at what is available from eCorner for free first. A custom theme can cost as little as $300 to produce and add to the online shop.


Design is important but more important is the user experience and the overall structure and accessibility of your online store. So make sure that you have flexibility in the way that categories, sub-categories and content are created and that they can easily be changed. 


Mobile device friendly as standard and not dependent on special designs or custom themes


Over 50% of all the people looking for products and services are now browsing the web with mobile devices. So it is important that your website works on any device and eCorner's solutions support any browser and any device. Google now also looks at mobile friendly websites and will rank them higher for search engine optimisation and therefore in search results. 


ecorner and onesaas a fully integrated solutionIntegrate with other systems witout custom development


OneSaaS is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) integration platform designed to solve the challenges of integrating separate 'cloud-based' or on-site software solutions. It is basically an external mechanism that allows you to move and share data across multiple platforms to improve the way you integrate with external systems. So if you want to link your online store to MYOB and Mail Chimp for example, you can do that via OneSaaS.


How does it work ?

When an order is placed on your online store, certain information is automatically passed on to your OneSaaS account. And depending on the applications that you have selected to integrate with it would then activate a fulfilment process, update your accounting system and provide stock updates to your inventory management software.


Who can you integrate with?

With OneSaas you can integrate your ePages website to these (and many more) leading providers...
