The price for a WordPress eCommerce website with all the elements listed above ranges from $3,500-$7,000, depending on number of products Silicon Computers loads into the shopping cart.
Custom Website Development
You need a website designed to manage tasks not available within WordPress, such as membership management, custom database work or otherwise functionality tailored to your business needs. BitShift does offer an application called Traction, to help with your maintenance and membership needs. It can typically be integrated into your existing website built on a LAMP platform, or your site can be converted to a LAMP site to benefit from Traction. Pricing for custom work is project specific, but typically runs at $100.00/hr. Please contact us for custom work requests!

As you can probably see, the price ranges vary quite a bit, just as they should considering everyone has different tastes, wants, and budgets when it comes to building a website.
Please be prepared to note the exact specifications for the project, how many pages you require, how many forms, what functionality, etc. This step ensures that the work is properly scoped out and parts have not been missed. It will also help guard against added billing to cover items that were not scoped originally.
