Check out the previous work of a company which you are going to hire.Their designs and projects and their reviews . I have found southflorida-webdesign company appropriate for this work as they have experienced designers .Visit the site http://www.southflorida-webdesign.com
You can get lot of ecommerce web design agency while searching on the internet. As far as I know happyheapmarketing is also the best web design company which provides such type of services. You can check it out. https://www.happyheapmarketing.com.
Our low end sites start at $25-50k, but I think the same basic advice can apply for any budget.

Nearly every client I've ever worked with who's had a previous designer has a web design horror story. Be careful!

Before you start talking to design firms, you need to do some research, educate yourself, and set your budget... but first you need to get very clear on your needs so you know what *kind* of agency to look for.

You really need the best for you... so you really need to know what you need.

Understand *precisely* how your site fits into your overall business and marketing strategy. Will you need marketing services as well? Will you need print design and advertising too? Will you hire staff to maintain and update the site, or do you need them to provide ongoing support? What's your social marketing strategy and how will you use your site to facilitate that? How will the content tie into your marketing, social media, and seo strategies? Who will develop your content? Who is your target market? What do THEY want to know to feel comfortable making a purchase (that's usually different from what YOU want to tell them, so sort out those differences)? How will you communicate the benefits of your products, not just their features? If you have a brick and mortar site, how will your website dovetail with that? Do you need it to track inventory? What can your website automate that will reduce the load of your store/warehouse staff? Does it need to tie into your POS system? What's your email marketing strategy? Do you need the agency to manage that as well? How will you drive the right kind of traffic to your site? Do you need an online marketing strategy? Do you need an intranet? Do clients need to login to manage/view their accounts/orders? How will you communicate order status? Do you need help with product photography? Can customers leave reviews? How will your data be stored, backed up, and protected? What insurance do you need to have in place in case your site gets hacked and costumer credit card number are stolen? How will you measure your success? Will they design landing pages for your campaigns? Who do you call when you have a problem 2 months after launch? How can you use video (posted on Vimeo or YouTube) to sell your products, and how can you tie that into your site? Do you need a blog so you can feature new products?

THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT ALL OF THAT! Some of it might not be in the budget up front, so set your priorities. What's in Phase I or II or IX?

This is just the tip of the iceberg.... But this will help you figure out if you just need a web developer, or a design firm, or a complete design/marketing/advertising house.

Get together a list of sites you like, and what you like about them. This will help you communicate your design aesthetic to the potential developers.

What's your budget? No matter what the firm says, there's ALWAYS the potential that the project can go over budget, especially if you miss deadlines or make last minute changes. Plan on having a 10-25% contingency.

Know your decision making process for getting things done. If it's design by committee, expect delays and heated discussions. Have an plan in place to keep those delays from costing you money.

For the technical part of it...

Don't hire anyone who will layout your site using tables or Flash... or thinks submitting your website to search engines or buying linkbacks are good seo strategies. They need to write validated code (HTML5, CSS, Javascript, PHP, etc). Get them to explain to you what languages they are using and why (then research it).

They need to know how to speak “techie” language to you in a way that you understand what they're saying. If they can't communicate their service and product to you, they can't communicate your products to your clients. If you don't understand what they're saying, look it up.

Take your time selecting agencies/developers to interview. Plan to talk to at minimum 3-5. This is a VERY important hire --- perhaps the most important for an e-commerce site --- so you'll want to be sure you're getting someone credible that you actually want to work with. They need to get you and your business.

You can look at sites similar to what you need and find out who designed them. If you need to “see” and sit down with your developer to feel comfortable, search for someone in your area.

Make sure you review their portfolio. Look at existing client sites. See how easy it is to add things to the cart and check out. Check with the BBB for complaints. See if they have reviews. Insist on talking to a few past clients.

Experience IS important, but it can also mean that the designer/developer is set in their old school ways. Ask about how they keep current / what's their ongoing education.

Remember that a site is a living, breathing, vital entity. You can't just build it and forget it. Just like a storefront, you have to keep it fresh and on trend. You need to keep the content current so visitors know it's an active site. Don't think you can put it up and be done spending. It needs to always be at the forefront of your mind. Make sure the architecture and css are solid, so that you can do a minimally invasive facelift in 2-3 years.

If you've got just a few thousand --- or fewer --- dollars to spend, consider talking to area design schools to see if you can get your company on the slate to be a student project. You could also take a look at http://99designs.com/ . You post projects and designers bid. You can check the designers out. I've outsourced to them when I've been stuck doing sites for little clubs (like my son's baseball team fundraiser) and friends.

Feel free to post more questions about this. I've got a lot on my plate these days, so I'll be a little slow, but I'll do my best. Good luck.

There are number of companies offer an e-commerce website, but deciding which one is best, is a bit tough. Every company has some good points and some bad. First decide what you want like your budget, whether you want a template or a complete new website, because some companies offer only templates etc. I like Umpaweb as it offers both templates and a complete new website http://www.umpaweb.com/

It is important for businesses to understand the 79 percent of all Americans are now online and that gaining access to this potential travel market is an excellent method for travel agents to build sales.

There are number of companies offer an e-commerce website, but deciding which one is best is a tricky job for all of us. Every company has good and bad aspects. In fact, your requirements, budget, whether you want a template or a complete new website matter. In my case, I got my site designed by http://www.cornishpixel.com/, and I would recommend you the same for web design services.
