Web Development

Web Development

Since the mid 90s, web development has been one of the fastest growing industries in the world. In 1995 there were fewer than 1,000 web development companies in the United States, but by 2005 there were over 30,000 such companies in the U.S. alone. The growth of this industry is being pushed by large businesses wishing to sell products and services to their customers and to automate business workflow.

This section is dedicated to those of you that like to learn and want to do your own "web development" or at least some of it, share some time and opinions with other customers and the web developers of the IDEAS Group.

7 eCommerce Design Trends for 2017

Before starting the list, remember that when building your ecommerce website your focus should be to MEET THE USERS' NEEDS, how simple is to find what they are looking for, fast loading, and a hassle free checkout is the ultimate goal of your store.

Instead of "showing off" what nowadays a browser can do, the passion of your webmaster should be directed to user friendly usability and good functionality of the shopping cart.
 

Threads on Zen Cart forums about recommended modules come around very often, but what is most intriguing about them is the wide range of "must-have" modules and the disagreements about what they are.

Since modules (plugins and addons)  inhibit and raise the cost of upgrading, I strongly recommend that you use them only to solve problems or needs that you have on your site, to make your management easier and/or faster; and not because somebody else thinks they're a good idea or solved something for them.

When you are looking to open your online store there are 2 available options.  You could hire a design company and have them build you a site from scratch with shopping cart and all the bells and whistles, or…you could go with the much more attractive option of implementing a ready-to-go ecommerce solution, which you can adapt to your particular needs.
