DD9 offers design and development services for e-commerce enabled websites and web applications on a variety of platforms, including WooCommerce,Magento,Shopify, Squarespace, CS Cart and the custom build platforms, Ruby on Rails and PHP/MySQL.
We can build standard shopping cart sites, for the sale of physical products, just like their brick-and-mortar counterparts, as well as virtual products (i.e. data downloads, e-books, etc), to subscriptions products for the sale of on-going access to data and services.
Where possible, we reduce the burden of PCI compliance by implementing a modern 3rd party payment processing system, such as Stripe or Braintree. These systems allow us to process credit card payments 'on site' without ever receiving or storing the actual card data on our servers.
In the event that a 3rd party system as such cannot be used, we follow best security practices for data encryption and payment processing. For additional PCI compliance, we can implement specific technical recommendations provided by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).
To facilitate secure e-commerce functionality, you will need a security certificate to be installed on your hosting account.
By default, domains hosted on DD9 servers will use a shared IP address. SSL certificates, server-to-server firewalls and other web applications require your domain to have a unique IP address.
Online stores can consist of one of many technology configurations. Each configuration will have a set of benefits and limitations and will be discussed by contacting DD9.
