Transactional Website

People who shop online are very familiar with this type of website. A transactional website is the electronic replacement of a brick-and-mortar retailer or a catalog business for manufacturers that wish to sell directly to the public. The transactional website can be hosted or on-premise and can conduct end-to-end transactions via the website. Also, it allows customers to search for, order, and pay for the products or services online, to contact the company for after-sales services. 

As a business owner, you would like to design or develop this type of ecommerce website and therefore, you can take help from an ecommerce solution provider for complete designing and maintenance purposes. 


Static Content Website


A static Content Website is the type of ecommerce website that generates sales by promoting corporate awareness rather than directly facilitating online transactions. This type of ecommerce website provides information about the products and services and includes contact information, guiding the way to purchase the product or service. As compared with the transactional website, this type of website is less expensive.


Online Marketplace or Auction Site


These types of ecommerce websites are self-hosted platforms that bring both buyers and sellers together in one place to facilitate transactions. As a business owner or a start-up owner, you can participate on these sites sell your product or services without investing a lot of money in building a proprietary transactional website. These sites include sites for retailers or wholesalers, matching services, and auction sites.
