If you’re considering setting up a new online shop or migrating from one ecommerce platform to another, a core consideration is always going to be price, regardless of the size of your business. The cost of getting the website in place and its on going maintenance is something you’ll need to factor into your budget.


So how much does an e-commerce website cost?

It’s an annoying answer, but it really does depend. If you have to hire a developer and a designer then you could easily be looking at thousands upon thousands of pounds. If you attempt to go bespoke, you’ll most likely need to pay for developers for every little modification needed going forward too. The other option is to use one of the many platforms out there.

With some e-commerce platforms, there’s an up front fee and the monthly fees starting from $29 and going up to hundreds depending on the features and support you need.

Other platforms charge a set fee and then charge for extra features or “modules,” like the ability to sell on Facebook or integration with other selling platforms like Amazon or Ebay.

At Shopblocks, we’ve created a platform that offers our users full flexibility at a really affordable price. We have packages starting at absolutely no monthly charge. That’s right – we really do have free e-commerce website options.
