E-commerce has become a popular way for businesses to reach customers and sell products online. Developing an e-commerce website requires careful planning, attention to detail, and a comprehensive understanding of the customer’s needs. This case study will describe the process of developing an e-commerce website for a small business.

Testing and Launch
Before the website was launched, we conducted extensive testing to ensure that it was free of errors and worked as intended. We tested the website on different devices, browsers, and internet connections to ensure that it was accessible to all users. We also conducted a security audit to identify and address any vulnerabilities. Once testing was complete, the website was launched.
