How eCommerce Websites Work
It may help you to know that any website has two main parts. You can mix and match your options of who you would like to deliver each part for you.
The eCommerce Platform. This drives your menu, creates product pages and shopping basket. It's the payment and checkout facility. It's the bit that will notify you when you get a sale. Web design companies may use an off the shelf one or create their own. There is a cost to any decent eCommerce platform. It's absolutely vital you select a good one!
The design. The design is like a veneer that sits on top of the eCommerce platform. You can have lots of different designs on top of the same eCommerce platform, and they can look totally different.
