Costs

I like to be transparent with my clients, and to help you understand all the costs involved. Here's what to expect:

The Build. This is the design and build of your website. Ecommerce packages start at £1500. A quote will be provided after a discovery call, before you make any commitments.

 

Hosting. This is the cost of getting your website online. This is an annual fee, with price breaks for longer contracts. Currently this is around £250 a year through Wix, but price fluctuations mean it isn't guaranteed, so please get in touch for a current quote. Wix also include your SSL in this price.

Domain Name. If you don't already have your website address, you must purchase one to link to your website. Prices start from £15 per year, and must be renewed annually. Again, there are price breaks to be had for longer contracts.

Other fees. You will need to consider payment charges for transactions, marketing upgrades for larger marketing email quotas, additional stock images if required (10 are included in your package as standard)  additional ones are chargeable in packs of 10. For current prices, please contact me.

The Process

Getting your business website built and online is quick and easy with Star Creative Studio!

Our ecommerce websites are usually built in around 6 weeks (please check current lead times as we are often booked up weeks in advance) but this timing will of course vary depending on the complexity of your desired site. An estimate on the build will be included with your quote, as I understand that we all need deadlines and dates to work to. To secure your booking and guarantee your build slot, we will take a deposit. You can either pay all up front, or opt for 50% of your quoted amount upfront, and the remaining amount upon completion of your website - when it's online and you are 100% happy with everything! Once payment in full has been received, the full ownership of the website is passed over to you, where you will continue to be responsible for the upkeep, domain and hosting renewals. At this point, we will need to verify your identity and payment information - this involves uploading photo ID (a driving license or passport) and a current bank statement for your chosen bank account, for Wix to verify. This us a UK regulation that is required for all ecommerce sites through Wix. Your information can be uploaded by you through your Wix Account, and neither I, nor anyone else, needs to see this information. Once verified, you will be able to receive any payouts your store receives - yay!

Before we start the build, we will have a call, email chat or local meet up, to understand what your requirements are for your website. Once this is all established, I will require certain information from you, such as your prefered contact information, information about you/your business, your services, as well as your logo and branding/colours to ensure smooth building of your new site. We also love when you can supply lots of your own images to add a real personal touch to your website, but don't worry, we also have access to stock images if needed! I will also need all the information for your first 50 products, and will provide a spread sheet for you to fill out - don't forget to supply photos for each product too!

During the build, you will be invited to open a Wix account. Here you will have access to the website dashboard, where you can access the website builder and other information like analytics and any messages from  customers. This is also where you will upload your ID and Bank Statement once the website has been handed over to you.

After the build, we can have an optional online zoom/teams call or local catch up, to talk through how you can keep on top of your website once it's been handed over. This includes how to edit your site, find your analytics and answer any other questions you might have. I can also talk you through where to upload your ID documents and show you the marketing email suite.

After the website has been handed over, you have 30 days of additional support, where I will be on hand to iron out any issues you might have, or problems that arise. We will run test purchases before you go live, but it's peace of mind for you that you have some support if anything crops up in those following 30 days! After this time, you might find you have little time for, or are overwhelmed with, the idea of updating your website or products. Don't panic! I offer ongoing monthly support packages, or one off options, charged at an hourly rate, where I can make alterations, update galleries or services, add or alter additional products, or anything else you want to change. Remember, a regularly updated website does wonders for Google's Algorithm!

Useful Information

Building your new website should be fun and exciting, but if you aren't tech savvy, or website aware, you may have lots of questions or queries! I have tried to answer most of the questions that customers usually ask, in this helpful FAQ page. Please take a look, but by all means, if your question isn't there, please do get in touch!
