Either as an enhancement of your brick & morter store or as a standalone retail site, hpdDesign will get your products online and guide you through the process of developing sales and fulfillment procedures. By using the Drupal content management system as a framework for your store, it is easy to add new products, list items for sale, create discounts for special customers, have store promotions and provide secure customer account information and order updates.
PayPal is an easy and effective way to collect payments or receive donations online and we can quickly help you set up an account. We can also connect your website with other merchant account gateways for complete online payment services. (BTW, hpdDesign accepts PayPal payments)
One of the trickier considerations in selling online is handling shipping; the amount to charge, shipper's to use, geographic areas, and delivery timeframes. With a CMS platform, we can even tie the shopping cart directly to UPS, FedEx or the USPS to get an exact quote and correct charges for customer order shipping. We help you customize your shipping procedures to provide the level of service you need.

A simple product listing may be all that an author needs to sell books, but for an online store you may want featured products, sale listings, shopping carts, discounts, customer accounts and backend fulfillment management.
