Step Brightly started a Ecommerce 101 series that is going to showcase extensive research on top-rated shopping cart solutions. Lucky for us, we are going to share much of that in our video series!

In Part 2 of Lisa’s Ecommerce 101 series: What you are going to need, Lisa shares terms you need to be familiar with to need to get your online store running in a legitimate and professional way. All of these items; Merchant Account, Payment Gateway, API integration and an SSL certificate are additional fees, which are often not included in the package price you see on shopping cart websites.

Part 3 of Step Brightly’s Ecommerce 101 series looks at features or ‘add-ons’ and services that your shopping cart should provide you. There are certain features that are offered with any ecommerce solution that are kind of a ‘given’ and should be inherit in any shopping cart you consider, and then there are ‘special features’ that will make your site 10x better!
