The costs for creating an online store vary greatly and depend on the desired quality, the required functions and the scope and product range to be covered.
For a small and comparatively simple online store, you can expect to pay around 4,000 euros. An online store with customized functions, on the other hand, is considerably more expensive at a cost of around 20,000 to 30,000 euros, but it is also much more flexible.
Sophisticated e-commerce solutions, e.g. with product configurator, connection to merchandise management or customer-specific requirements, range between €60,000 and €100,000. Very complex solutions with many technical dependencies and store solutions such as Spryker and Hybris can also cost several hundred thousand euros.

A very important point for the success of your online store is to ensure that you can always work with up-to-date data in the store.
For a few products, the maintenance can be done easily and uncomplicated by you or your team via the administration interface of the store system, but for several hundreds or even thousands of products, this approach no longer works, here is usually a direct integration of inventory management or CRM via the interfaces provided by the store system in real time.

The direct connection of warehouse management system and the store system makes a lot of sense in practice, because this way real-time data is always used in sales and no products are displayed as available in the store that are not available in reality.
Thus, when selecting a store system, one of the most important questions is whether the warehouse management system can be integrated. In practice, all large store systems such as Magento, Shopware, Spryker, and Oxid eSales already offer components to take over the data of the warehouse management system.
Here, it must then be checked whether and, if so, in what form the data can be retrieved or exported from the warehouse management system. Established solutions offer a Soap or REST interface or an export function that can be automated as a CSV. If the requirements are met in the warehouse management system, then nothing stands in the way of integrating the data into the store system.

You already have an existing website and now the question naturally arises whether it is possible to integrate the store directly into the website.
In order to be able to answer this question reliably, the concrete website must be looked at first, here the technology in the background is decisive. For example, if the website has been professionally programmed or is based on a content management system (CMS), and if it is also operated in your own hosting package, i.e. you have access to the source code, then integration is often possible. With homepage construction kit systems, this is usually only possible to a very limited extent.
