Why every Business Should Accept Online Payments

It is only Seventeen years since the internet was commercialised, but in that time it has been responsible for the most dramatic impact on culture, communication and more importantly commerce. This has major implications for every business today.

The internet is now very much a part of everyday life for many people, where the use of smart phones, laptops and credit cards merge online seamlessly for eCommerce. Recent advances in credit card payment systems have provided the customer security to make impulse buying or grocery shopping effortless and commonplace. Each year that statistics show an increase in the number of people using the internet as well as buying products and services online – eCommerce.

In the world of today, whether your business is an online one or a physical store or business, a big benefit it can have is online-paymentaccepting online payments. In reality, not all businesses start out this way, and it can be a big mistake. All businesses should really employ online payment services. Here are some reasons why:

 

1. It’s Easier!

In this 21st century, most people are foregoing the use of cheque book these days and opting for debit or credit card payments, especially with the recent introduction of the cashless / cash lite policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Whether a store is an online business or even a physical one, online payments make it easier. It’s also very easy for a business to set it up whether they do it themselves or hire an eCommerce company such as ediaro.com to do it for them.

An online store needs to accept online payments or else they’ll be waiting for cheques to come in and being held up their transaction. But a physical store can also benefit from the ease of online transactions. Think about businesses that have monthly re-occurring payments coming in, whether it’s a pest control business, utility company, consultant, or a school. It will be much easier for them if they just set up online payment services for their customers. Other businesses that have monthly bills can do the same.

 

2. It’s Reliable

Everyone is familiar with the term, “The cheque has not cleared in the Bank,” but it seems too often that the cheque actually never actually clear sometimes, even we have had some bounced cheques in the past.  With online payments, there’s no more waiting around for a cheque to clear. There is also a clear record of payments. This works in both the business owner’s and the customer’s favor. No more lost payments from either end.

This works for the customer and the business!

 

3. Better Record keeping and Cost-Cutting

Occationally, there can be dispute about I’ve paid, “Oga you never pay us oo” not paid. If there is a payment issue, it is a lot easier to resolve with online payments. Not only is it easier for the business owner to keep track of payments, but the customer can also check to make sure payments have gone through. Happier customers make for better business!

It also allows the business to cut costs by omitting sending out paper bills through the postal mail and physically entering payments into a system, which is a costly, time-consuming part of business. With online payments, this is all cut out, freeing up more time and money for other aspects of the company.

 

4. Choices and Options Are Still Available

Some businesses heading in this direction are providing options for online payments. Some are doing automatic billing, such as membership places like gyms or businesses that offer lessons or services that are a consistent price each month or annually. Some offer the option of non-automatic payments so the customer still has the control over the payment, but it can be done online all the same. This makes it convenient, again, for the business owner as well as the customer. ediaro.com can deploy different local and international payment options that support one time billing or automatic re-occurring billing and the money would be credited into your bank account.

 

5. Provides Payment Options Around the Clock

With online payment options, worries of late payments can be forgotten. Payments, even non-automatic ones, can be made at midnight or any time other of day. Usually these online payments clear much faster than waiting on a cheques and physically depositing it. Not only can the payments be made at any time, but that also means that the money is in the business owner’s pocket faster.

With so many aspects of business going online, the financial end should be one of them. Most businesses already advertise online and have some sort of online presence, even if they are a primarily physical business. It’s easy enough to add online payments to this, and things will only get easier and more profitable.

The choice is simple and although you may not be fully comfortable with all things online, your business cannot afford to squander the opportunity that is the web. Companies that arrive late to the party may find it more difficult to pull customers from more established online brands

Why your business needs a website

Why does any business need a website?

A Web site can help you/Business overcome the limited reach of traditional print and broadcast media, making it possible for you to reach a truly widespread and diverse audience. Through this you can get the most value from the marketing materials you’ve already created by making them easily accessible to your site’s users. You can deliver data sheets, frequently asked questions (FAQs), press releases, announcements, and newsletters to customers and the media 24 hours a day. The Tell Us and Survey features of your site capture information about the products and services that interest site users.

Benefits of Having a website.

With a website:

  • You can heighten public interest
  • Reach the media
  • Release time sensitive material
  • Reach specialized market
  • Functional expansion – Deliver 24/7 service
  • Reach the educated and youth market
  • Reach highly desirable demographic market
  • Stay in contact with sales people
  • Increased visibility – Reach the global market
  • Allow customers to self-help themselves – Improved customer/vendor relationship
  • Collection of customer data – Know your customers
  • Reduce cost of doing business – Less expensive
  • Use as a sales tool – Be Supportive
  • Matching customer expectation – Be detailed
  • Natural company growth – Strategy for this 21st Century era
  • Among other numerous benefits.

To answer that question in detail, let’s look at the major independent reasons that should make sense for many companies:

Increased visibility – Reaching global market

Think of your website as a continuous method of promoting your company on a national and international basis every day of the week. All of this chance at promotion and at a fraction of the typical traditional costs for such coverage through traditional advertising means.

Functional expansion – 24/7 service

Your company can effectively multiply the customer or vendor interfacing capabilities very quickly and again, very cost effectively. This means that you can provide more timely information on your products, pricing, updates, company literature, manuals, and answers to commonly asked questions. The beauty of this is the speed and ease in how these things can be offered on a 24 hour-a-day basis.

Allow customers to self-help themselves – Improved customer/vendor relationship

Over time, it has been proven that customers do not mind helping themselves electronically in order to get information or buy products that they desire. In fact, customers have come to expect some elements of website self-help to be available to them. There is no question that the old paradigm of doing business has shifted in large part thanks to the ease of the interface with the company website. Vendor and partner relationships can also be improved by this ease of access to information. Allow customers to help themselves and allow vendors and partners to help themselves and help you at the same time.

Collection of customer data – Know your customers

Many statistics can be gathered from the customer traffic to your website. Information such as when information is accessed from the website can be useful. Additionally, where they go within your website and where they come from to your site, can also be gathered. It is also easy enough to gather relevant information, facts, or opinions from your website visitors by asking them to fill out forms or a questionnaire. It is no real threat to visitors as they can either choose to provide information and opinions or not, leave the choice to them.

Reduce cost of doing business – Less expensive

Think in terms of how you can still provide information that customers or potential customers seek but make it available via the website. What winds up happening is that your thinking begins to supplant traditional rules of “how things should be” with what makes sense in the new millennium. Things that naturally fall into this category are things such as printing and marketing expenditures, customer service information, manuals, or product catalogs. All of these types of hard expenses with a good strategy, can be substantially reduced or eliminated by proper use of your website.

Use as a sales tool – Be Supportive

Your website can become a tremendous sales support piece to your marketing or promotions. This especially becomes true when you utilize the website as a complete literature piece or an expanded web-brochure explaining the full story of a product or service. The website can be a tremendous competitive differential advantage to sales and support personnel as it provides for the customer or potential customer to be directed to full collateral material and most current product and company information.

Matching customer expectation – Be detailed

Not having a website these days, or worse, a site not reflecting the quality of your business can create a detrimental perception among your market, customers, and vendors. This is especially true, if customers expect a website to be a common part of the business that you are in. There is not an especially good answer when a customer asks why they cannot locate your website on the Internet.

Natural company growth – Strategy for the era

A company that is really wants to grow beyond the natural limitations imposed by the non-web business environment has to consider e-business possibilities. A prerequisite for companies that want to grow into e-business, is that they have a solid business foundation supported by strong strategy. At the heart of that strategy, is a professional website that has common elements of proven success. The website should have a blended strategy that complements the existing company’s policies, practices and strategy in order to create strong synergy.

How can I get a website developed by you?

Once you have decided on having your site done by us, just click the “request a website quote” link. This will open up a questionnaire form, using which you can convey all the details that we need for the Phase 1 of your Website development. After we receive this, we will would review and get back to you via phone or email for the contents, structure, layout and probable Costing of the site development. Once we get a confirmation from you, a demo of your proposed site will be made and it will be hosted on our server. Once you approve or adjust the demo, the site will be made fully functional and will be uploaded on the server space taken for you.

“So How Much is This Going to Cost?”

Excellent question. Everyone is unique; therefore, everyone’s design requirements will be a little different. The price will depend on what you want us to create for you. At ediaro, we believe that in order to create truly custom-made web sites for our customers, we need to be flexible. That’s why we avoid “locking in” design prices. Together, you and ediaro Webcentre Team can decide what is the best solution for you, and we’ll create a price from there. In any event, it will cost you much less than you think. Your Web Services design package gets you a web site which serves as international advertising, your own domain name (which means, in English, that you have your own personalized address, www.yourname.com, where yourname is whatever you want), your own email addresses, and one year’s worth of hosting with most design packaging–all probably less than you’re paying for local advertising every month !

We Can Design What You Need

Just tell us what you want. Maybe it’s just an “online brochure,” detailing who you are, what you do, and how people can get in touch with you–nothing too fancy. We can design that for you. We can even give you email accounts. Maybe you’re looking for something a little more in-depth, more comprehensive, such as detailed information, and specifications on your products. We can do that, too. We can even create an “online store” for you, your own little “storefront” on the Internet, where customers can place orders and pay online securely, quickly, and easily, and they can do it from anywhere in the world. It’s possible: ediaro can do it for you.

“Is There Anything You Won’t Design?”

Glad you asked. ediaro won’t design or host any web sites dealing with pornography or “adult entertainment,” nor anything that would be considered libellous, an infringement of copyright, or illegal. While we here at ediaro support freedom of speech and expression, we also like to remain on the “good side” of the local and international laws. It makes life easier for you and for us.

ediaro Website Development Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

We have listed below for you some of the most frequently asked questions in connection with website design – along with answers – pertaining to web design and associated web issues.Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements:

Why Should I own my website?

There are a list of good reasons to make your own site, if you are in Business. Click here to read our article about Why your business needs a website. If you need further assistance or support, you can contact us by emailing us at info@ediaro.com.

We know what we want the end result to be, but we don’t know what needs to be done to achieve it. How can ediaro help us?

We can provide the web consultancy necessary to help you determine what the programming and other requirements will be. As a complete custom solution provider, we can also provide the full range of Internet business services, so whatever your web development requirements, we can provide the solution.

I run a small/medium size business and want an online presence to promote my business in a professional manner to new customers and to provide a more professional image to existing customers. What do I need to achieve this?

You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and hosting facilities for your website. You also need the website to be uploaded onto your hosting facilities and promoted to the search engines.

Will we need to have a meeting in connection with the website design?

In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs onto the Internet in a private place where only yourselves and us can view the content. We then liaise with you regularly to discuss the web designs in order that the website design and functionality is exactly as you wish.

Can you provide all our web design and hosting services?

Yes – we are your one stop company to provide all your web services. No more – not knowing who to call if you have problems – we can register your domain name – design your website – provide your web hosting and arrange your email accounts for you.

Can I edit my own website?

Yes, our easy to use web application makes this easy, with attendant online manual and excellent customer service. You can easily log into a web browser to make changes to your own site. This is a very popular option for businesses that would prefer to save money by making their own site updates.

How do I update my website?

If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask ediaro to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependent upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present.

ediaro Web developers Team can offer you a complete Web Maintenance Support Plan. From minor to major changes, a support plan is a custom at ediaro Webcentre to fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer web site maintenance so that your website need never get out of date. We will offer you the convenience and flexibility of updating, modifying or adding to your website with the relative ease of a phone call or an email to ediaro. In addition, a support contact can offer you the benefits of Online Marketing and hosting services for improved website performance.

Alternatively, should you wish to manage your own website, a custom built web editing software (Popularly known as, Content Management Solution or CMS) will be used to develop your website – to make this easy for you to manage, when back by our training and support service. We design easy to maintain CSS based websites, so that by changing the CSS attributes you can do a site wide design change in minutes.

If you develop with a Content Management System (CMS)- can I be sure that my webpages are “Search Engine Friendly”?

Yes with the ediaro Content Management System (CMS), all web pages created are Search Engine Friendly – you can even add your own search engine meta tags to each individual web page if desired. THe CMS tools are easy to use – effective and intuitive.

How long does it take to complete my website?

The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.

That said, an average time for a site to be deployed is 2-4 weeks. However, this depends on the complexity of the pages and also on the participation level of the customer. It is crucial for the customer to provide ediaro with all requested information on a timely basis. We will involve the customer as much (or as little!) as they desire. Some prefer to be part of the process along every step, while others would rather let us use make decisions based on our past experiences.

What is content? And what is the content collection process?

Content is all the text and images that are found on your website. We feel that you know your business the best and that is why we like to have our clients write their own content, though we can assist you. The collection process involves us identifying what it is we need to get from you, sending you a list, and working with you to obtain each item.

In what format should I supply words and photographs about my business for my new website?

It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form – for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.

I hear that there are hidden costs associated with web design services. Is this true?

No. We discuss with you your website requirements and then price accordingly and once you have placed an order for your website design with us, that price is strictly adhered to.

Do you do fixed Price Quotations or Time based billing – and which is better for the customer?

Traditional Web Design and Development companies tend to use time-based billing practices. However, time-based billing has a number of significant drawbacks for their clients. For example, what happens if your project takes longer or requires more resources than the developer originally estimated? What happens if you want to add a new feature that was not included in the original design?

The simple answer is that with traditional billing methods, there is no cap on your investment. If the developer has underestimated the resources needed to complete the project or if you need to make changes to the design, then your project costs can increase. This might not be too significant for very small projects, but for larger projects it might cause serious problems.

ediaro Webcentre is not your traditional Web Creation Company. We are proud to offer our clients fixed-price quotations for any projects we undertake. After all, you are investing in an outcome, not a block of our time or a list of software features.

I already have a website and I need it updating, can you help me?

Yes, we would be happy to look at you existing website and give you a quote for updating it.

Do you redesign existing websites?

Yes we do. We can redesign, retaining your company corporate style or we can redesign to give you a complete new image. Is your website up to date – let us provide you a Free of Charge Website Evaluation – we can redesign your website to take advantage of the latest web technologies

Do you display any banners or pop-up ads on my website?

Absolutely not! – It’s your website and you have total control over the contents and who advertises on it.

What if I do not like the design?

If you do not like the design which we have suggested for you, we will discuss further with a view to ascertaining what type of design you would like to see and then place another “suggested design” in your web area for you to view. We would not like to think that you are not happy with the final website design. Our aim is to design for you a website specific to your requirements which you are completely happy with.

Who owns the website once the website design is completed?

The website belongs to you – we send you a copy of the website on cd. This copy is for your retention and should you wish to use another web design or web hosting company – you are completely at liberty to take this copy to them for them to use.

I like your work, but how can I use you if I am in London and you are in Abuja?

This is the beauty of the internet. Roughly 40% of our clients have never met the person developing their website face to face. Between the telephone and email it is a simple process. If we need to run a visual concept past a client, the concept is uploaded to a private site on the internet where the client can see it, give feedback and, in many cases, even watch the changes being made while discussing it on the telephone.

Why do I need a website, I don’t even own a computer?

You do not need a computer to be on the internet. It is the same as taking an advert in a newspaper that you never read. The advert is aimed at reaching your target market. A website is the same. It is not for your benefit, but for the express purpose of reaching that segment of your market who do have and use their computers to find things on the internet.

You would merely provide no email contact, but still give all other contact details. The number of people who are using the internet as a preferred resource is growing by the day and this is a sector of the market that you stand to lose if you do not have a website.

Why should we go with you?

We stand out from our competition in being able to offer very high quality work at a reasonable price. Our websites are custom-made and tailored specifically for you. Also, we are able to offer integrated media solutions; meaning, we do more than just web design and programming. We also do video production, audio production, lighting, and graphic design. We can create an entire brand or identity for your company, create sales and promo videos, develop print materials (brochures, letterheads, etc), and then base the website around all of these.

Why are you so expensive? (…or why are you so cheap?)?

We are not the least expensive web developers out there; nor are we the most expensive. Instead, we try to produce work of the highest quality and place ourselves at a middle-of-the-road price point. We believe clients who value quality will be willing to pay for it, but still want to get a good deal in the process!

What is your acceptable Payment Options?

We accept Cash lodgement to our company account, Cheque, Bank Transfer, or credit cards including Visa, Master Card, AMEX and Discover. Hosting services are generally invoiced annually, in advance.

What is web development?

Web development is website design combined with back-end programming. The typical goal of web development is to produce a website that is database driven. Some of the largest websites in the world rely on databases which allow the site owner to add, change, or delete what is stored in their database without having to open each individual file. The programming embedded in the website then takes care of updating the hundreds, if not thousands, of web pages.

However web development is an evolutionary process for every individual client. Some business may require more basic catalog style website’s whereas; larger businesses may feel that an Intranet or an eCommerce style web design is more appropriate.

ediaro Website Development team can help you tailor a business solution that meets your business requirements. To learn more, please contact us (info@ediaro.com). We would love to hear from you.

What is a web application or web based application?

A web application is a program that runs on the web. Typically interactive, the application accepts input from the web user, processes the input, and displays the results. Web applications usually have a multi-tier architecture and use technologies such as ASP, XML, and database connectivity to perform the data processing. Web development firms should have certain plans and procedures for web based applications.

What is eCommerce?

eCommerce is a general term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information and funds across the Internet. This covers a range of different types of selling, from consumer-based retail sites through auction and music sites, to business exchanges trading goods or services between corporations.

What is E-Business development?

E-Business is slightly more than eCommerce. Doing business between suppliers and vendors or partners can be done online. The complete business transaction can be done and controlled by an E-Business site.

Is web development and web design the same thing?

All websites are created using web design techniques but web development, or Web programming, is only used when a site needs to be interactive, dynamic or perform a function that is outside of the realm of static website design.

Why would I want web development or a database driven site?

This will depend upon the amount of information you wish to be displayed on your website. If your site has to be updated frequently, even in a small scale – A database driven website will allow those without any design or development experience to make changes, updates, additions or deletions thus saving money on maintenance contracts.

If you’re planning on having your website interact with the user in any way other than simply displaying your web page’s information, you’d want a database driven site. Web programming handles everything from a simple feedback form to a complex eCommerce system.If you have many products/services, then it may be advantageous to have a database incorporated into your website design.

We will discuss this in detail with you and if a database is advised we will explain in detail exactly how this will work. We can tailor your website design to suit your specific requirements.

What else do I need besides a professional web developer?

That will depend on the purpose of your site and the type of interactivity it offers. You may need secure hosting, SSL certificate, a merchant account or an online transaction provider.

We will discuss your requirements with you and provide the web consultancy necessary to help you determine exactly what is necessary as well as the best method of obtaining it.

Are your web developers properly trained?

Our professional web developers have all received training in web development languages and we have an ongoing training program to ensure that our knowledge is kept up to date.We conduct series online and offline training for all staffs in relevant fields such as website development, search engine optimization, online advertising among others.

I’m preparing a new website. Is cross-browser incompatibility really a problem?

Yes, incompatibilities are almost inevitable. A simple web page is likely to display on all browsers without problems, but the appearance may differ slightly on various browsers. A complex page or a web application may fail on some browsers if it is not properly coded and thoroughly tested.

At ediaro.com, we are aware of the problems and codes websites in a way, which avoids most of them. We use CSS style sheets to ensure a robust, maintainable layout, and we test our sites on multiple browsers to be sure they work properly.

Do you use ready-made website templates?

NO and YES. We know you have a unique business and need a unique website to reflect your business. So, we prefer to give you a solution designed for you alone.

Do you use Flash animation in your website design?

Yes we do use flash as and when required. It is important to note that there are times when flash animations can be an asset but it would be unwise to use “flash” to create an entire website or even entire pages of your website as search engines are not able to read the content of flash and therefore any words used in animations will not be indexed by the search engines.

Generally it is best to use flash for smaller banners, advertisements or demonstrations and incorporate the flash animation into a web page which also includes some written text in html. This way the search engines will be able to index your information

No is the simple answer.

Can I have an e-commerce system for my website?

Is there any training provided with the Content Management System – CMS?

The Content Management Systems really are very easy to use and do have explanatory notes included where necessary. We have simple online user manual for making updates easy on our client website. In addition, We run through the administration screens with you when we design the site for you – however if at any time you have any questions we are available at thru the email or telephone to run through the procedures or answer any queries you may have

How can I accept credit cards on my website?

5.) Display your testimonials. You must gain your visitors trust. By displaying customer testimonials, you are boosting your potential customers confidence in you and your product or service.

6.) Let your visitors know who you are. Provide complete information in regard to your company including, address, phone number and email addresses to request information and support on your website.
