What is the purpose of your site and what do you want to accomplish with it?

Your site must convey benefits of products or services rather than the features.
How will customers interact with you and does your infrastructure support your goals?
Do you have the software to take orders online from a secure server?
Do you know how you will fill orders?

What research have you carried out into the ins and outs of e-commerce?
Do you know what to expect? Just remember if you are planning on doing your own web site design, then you have twice as much to learn.
