Manufacturing Web Design Pricing

Designing and building an eCommerce cart for manufacturing, wholesale and distribution companies is an entirely different process than a typical business website. You need to think of your website as a “supercharged” online catalog where visitors can navigate through your products, quickly find what they are looking for and place items they want into a cart for ordering. Every product needs to have its picture, name, description, specifications and options entered into the system.

Because of the sheer volume of products and the amount of time it takes to enter or copy the data into the e-commerce system, we typically recommend that you approach your new site in phases. In the first phase, you select the high-volume, most popular and/or high value products (think of this as your ABC analysis for e-commerce) to be populated first, so that your site can be launched as quickly as possible. Then, add products every month until the entire product catalog is online.

The initial launch website can cost between $10,000 and $50,000. The biggest cost factor is the number of individual products (or sku numbers) that you need to be populated by the launch date. Other cost factors include the number of categories, sub-categories, sorting/filtering requirements, how easy it is to get the source material in digital format, customer groups, shipping rules, or even how easy you want to make it for your downstream customers to resell your products by making your own marketing materials available for download.
