How much does it cost to build an e-commerce Web site with two or three dynamic content areas?

Question by davis_sjd: How much does it cost to build an e-commerce Web site with two or three dynamic content areas?
We already have a flash designer who has laid out the specific pages. But we’re hiring a design firm to actually build the site. I was quoted $ 10,000. Does that seem high to you?

Yes it’s high but Web designers are always expensive. Don’t know what to tell you except if you want to do it cheaply, you about have to learn how to build web sites yourself.

    No that is about the standard price a firm would charge for an ecommerce site. That is because they usually have a team working on it and each member of the team is getting like 25-35 US an hour. It also depends what kind of content is on those pages. Things which are heavy programming required (custom shopping carts, credit card processing, logins etc) do take a bit of time.

    If you have a site that is only like 10 pages or less (which most ecommerce sites are NOT) then you could go with a single developer, but ecommerce sites do run a bit of cash because it is dealing with business logic, transactions, and critical information. For example if you lose data, you could lose a sale of thousands of dollars.

    In short, I would say they are not certainly hosing you, but you might shop around and shave a thousand or two off that price. Again, it depends on what your site will do in those areas, but that is standard price for a firm.
