The fundamental principles of successful ecommerce
Shop Banana has been developed from the ground-up to incorporate our fundamental principles of successful ecommerce websites:
1) SEO (Search engine optimisation). No SEO, no customers. More ...
Search Engine Optimistaion is the process of refining your website so it appears as close to the top of the list as possible in Google and other search engines. You can have the best website ever, but there is no point if nobody visits it. Shop Banana offers all the features you need to implement effective SEO, such as meta keywords and descriptions per product and URL rewriting. There is also a special SEO section designed to make it as easy as possible to check and adjust your SEO credentials.
2) Speed. Slow loading times, customers leave. More ...
If a customer has to wait more than a couple of seconds for a website to load, the chances are they will click away to another website.
Shop Banana is highly optimised, making extensive use of indexing and caching. This produces responsive websites with minimal loading times.
3) Design. Un-intuitive or un-professional design, customers leave. More ...
Your website has to inspire trust in its customers and stand out from competitors. The design you want should not be compromised by your choice of ecommerce package. Some packages offer a fixed range of templates with limited customisation options. With Shop Banana, any design can be implemented. In fact, Shop Banana goes one step further by extending existing internet technologies to allow you to easily change your design – for example, you can change you websites colour scheme and graphics with a few mouse clicks.
4) Security. You and your customers need to know that your website is secure. More ... †
The website should ensure that customer details cannot be ‘hacked’ and that all card payments are handled in a secure manner. Shop Banana is fully compliant with the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), and supports industry standard SSL encryption.
We have worked with online store owners to make the administration tool as easy to use and intuitive as possible.
We are committed to constantly improving the product and keeping it up to date with the latest industry developments as well as incorporating our own innovative features.
