The type of shopping cart used, whether customers can use it easily and it suits the needs of the business, will determine how successful the business is with their e-commerce sales. Being a service oriented business, True Haven will not have much of a stocked inventory for purchase. However, they may sell logo branded items or books. There are many options available for shopping cart software or programming. Open source shopping carts, which can be free, or a low cost paid service, are more customizable than others but have little or sometimes costly ...view middle of the document...

Each rate about the same cost for a low transaction rate such as True Haven would have which is 2.9% +$0.30 per transaction. The organization's profit from the transaction will be placed into their Paypal account. Fat.Free.Cart's shopping cart code can be imbedded within the programming of the website, they provide a copy/paste code, for no cost. This shopping cart is customizable to the products for example, shirt sizes offered and/or colors offered. There is also options within the cart view to remove items, change quantity, or continue shopping. The cart view also calculates the tax and total of the items for the customer and even lists international currency conversions when appropriate. Paypal fast checkout is also available (Fat.Free.Cart 2014). Google Wallet and Paypal are well known and process many financial transactions for a multitude of other sites as well. Name branding and dependable processing from the well known companies will help place customers minds at ease about transaction security. A search feature should also be added to the site for easier navigation to and around the products and services.
To optimize the find-ability of True Haven's site, keywords should be used that are common in general searches that would target things such as True Haven. For example, Non-profit, not for profit, outreach programs, etc. There are programs that assist in this determination and compare your keywords/organization to others that would be similar. Stringing words together, usually two to five, or using key phrases helps in making the organization stand out from the rest. Keywords can also be used in the form of Meta tags. Meta tags can highlight relevance of your site for a search.

Search engines also can pull keywords out of a site's page content. Therefore ensuring that the content of the page is of a higher caliber will make the page more easily found in a search as well as assist in user satisfaction and a higher user satisfaction can lead to person to person recommendations for the organization. Utilizing images as well as descriptions for as many products and services as they suit, reasonably, can also assist to optimize searches. Images used with item descriptions can be used similar to keywords in a text search, but with image searches. Higher resolution images are more desirable and can draw people to the site.
Social Media is another great tool for search optimization. Search engines use sites such as Facebook and Twitter to enhance the ratings on the sites that pull in a search. Having a higher following on Facebook or Twitter will place the page in a higher ranking therefore placing the page higher on the search return listing. Teaming up with other organizations or sites can also work in...
