Every site is special and it is hard to declare fixed price for every case. A few general cases are considered below.
Case 1: A Corporate Web Site.
The site tells us about the company itself, company's products and services, company's mission and policy, answers frequently asked questions, provides a contact form.
Development process has three parts:
Price for this part of work starts from $300. It depends on consumer's ideas for the site view. Animation and special effects are priced as extra.
The completion of the site is quite technical problem: copying this general template and personalize it inserting dedicated texts and pictures for each site page. A page will be priced from $10.
When the site is compound and tested, it will be posted to the Internet by:
The cost of this service usually does not exceed $50, not including hosting rent fee. Now the site is alive. Of course, these actions do not guarantee that the site takes the premium places in search engines. It takes time and it needs a special strategy and investments to grab a place on the first page of just one of Search Engines for just one of keywords. Not every company needs it. Learn more...
Case 2: A Catalogue.
The company wishes to add a catalogue of their products. Usually it is a list of items with thumbnail pictures which link to the next page with bigger image, more detail description and other information. If the company has more than 10 items to be displayed in the catalogue then it is right time to start considering database storage.
The database driven catalogues development includes:
Price for this part of work starts from $400. Web Tracery uses PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, JSP depending on the hosting type the customer has.
Case 3: E-commerce.
The company is growing up and is willing to add a support for on-line purchasing. Great! The company has already had a catalogue, so all what we need to do is adding a shopping cart and a credit card processing tool.
Unfortunately, it is not that easy.
Good news is that there is a number of ready solutions for e-commerce that can be used both as a whole and in parts. USA and Canada customers know e-bay with its very reliable PayPal service. PayPal provides the highest security level and a shopping cart that is free for installation. PayPal charges about 2% per transaction. Another respectable company - VeriSign - also provides us with highst level of security, however its clients must buy a certificate in advance and they will not be provided with a shopping cart.
Price for this part of work starts from $150. It is a cost of implementing of a business logic for trading one product via PayPal. An integration of PayPal's shopping cart starts from $300. All other cases are more particular and they have some features to be discussed: business logic, customers' database, security sertificates and so on. The final price depends on too many requirements to be estimated good in scope of this review.
