    I used ecwid to build my store. They are free for first 10 products and up to 100 products cost about $16 a month. I am sure you could have them help you with design.

    1. Look at their fortopolio, even better tell them to do a task to test their skills.
    2. Many sites including giant sites now have fixed social media buttons their site for easier access to social media, have some of those.
    3. Does not matter, what matter is the design, easy access and easy navigation.
    4. Sell good quality stuff.

    If you want to hire a reliable developer then you can check their portfolios to find out and check the quality of their work. Before hiring a developer also make sure that the developer always meet the project deadline. It is also not a good practice to hire fresh developers, because they might be able to develop a web application but they won't be able to create a secure application. Fresh developers usually make designing mistakes and clients have to pay tenfold cost afterwords to fix the designing and security flaws in the application.

    WordPress is an open source platform and it has endless numbers of plugins and users are not even aware of all the plugins and any developer can create and use a plugin in wordpress.

    The most popular WordPress e-commerce plugin is Woo Commerce and I would recommend it if you want WordPress e-commerce website. Woo Commerce is a free plugin and it is easy to setup and does not require you to have any technical knowledge to customize your e-commerce website. It has large amount of extensions and it offer a lot of payment gateways for payment methods.

      Hi Claire,

      Thanks for the very sound advice.

      Fyi, I already talk to a couple of web developers. All of which have portfolios already that were used by several industries in our country. They assure me about platforms and securities of applications. One of which, after discussing my concept and flow told me that they are going to used Wordpress but later on told me they will use Laravel. If you don't mind, can you provide me advantages & disadvantages of these two platforms? Would laravel platform has endless numbers of plugins too?

      From your point of view, how long would it take to make a website and the possible cost? One of the developers told me that they can accomplish my requirement within 3 months time and the cost is Php 500,000 (or &10,000). Is the cost expensive? May I know also, if by doing web development is this already a type of customize system or software?..Regards..

    If you have no or almost no budget then you should go for the WordPress + WooCommerce combination.
    It is a free open source eCommerce solution with a huge online community.

    If you want to hire a pro or an agency go for someone local. Makes it all easier, the first contact, cultural sensitivity etc.

    Follow these steps:
    1. ask for their portfolios.
    2. ask for their work experience.
    3. ask for the preferred technology they are using and how it will benefit your business setup.
    4. more importantly check for their reviews if you are hiring on online freelancing platforms such as Upwork, Freelancer.
