INITIAL STEPS

  2. SSL Certificate: this is security certificate that is an absolute "must" when selling online, for security purposes. We will provide this certificate for you at no extra charge.

Online Merchant Account

  2. Once you have set up your account, we will do the technical part to tie in the payment gateway to your website.

STARTER STORE

What we do for you

  • We use a Wordpress theme to build these starter stores. Wordpress is one of the most popular platforms for creating websites as well as adding online payment capabilities. It offers a lot of elements to make your website as functional as possible.
  • Since Wordpress themes are just overall frameworks, we will ensure that the layout best reflects your specific business.
  • We will incorporate the code necessary to create your store, and help it accept online payments.
  • We will incorporate code for search engine optimization. This is a good start to SEO effectiveness but if you feel you need more, you may want to consider either our Silver or Gold package.

Store owner responsibility

Anyone creating an online store needs to take care of certain aspects themselves. This applies to all stores, whether DIY or created by professionals:

  • You upload your own store data (product information such as pricing, description, images, etc.)
  • You need to have at least basic knowledge of how to work with images, how to write product descriptions, and how to follow the Wordpress dashboard.
  • You need to set up a Paypal online merchant account (this is your banking information).

Not comfortable with using the Wordpress administration panel? No worries - our Gold package offers a really easy-to-use administration panel and may therefore be the best for you.

Our low cost online store solutions are made to fit any budget.
