Silver Package

SILVER PACKAGE

One-time Fee $799.99
Monthly Fee $79.99

Our most comprehensive Wordpress based online store package.

If your requirements are beyond what we call our " basic store", this is the choice for you.

INITIAL STEPS

We guide you through everything you will need to get started!

Domain Name: this is your web address and it is renewable on a yearly basis. If you don't already have a domain name, we will do all the technical steps for you:

  1. We will help you choose the best name - domain names do not need to be exactly like your business name.
  2. We will register it for you through our affiliated Domain Registrar.
  3. We will do the technical steps to tie in your domain name to your website.

Hosting: this is the technical part that allows your domain name and your website to be visible on the internet.

  1. We provide hosting and do all the technical steps for you - the cost is included in the Silver Package monthly fee.
  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

  1. Although many people still like using Paypal, we highly recommend using Stripe (www.stripe.com) since Stripe offers more functionalities than Paypal when it comes to a more complex Canadian store.
  2. Once you have set up your account, we will do the technical part to tie in the payment gateway to your website.

ONLINE STORE BUILD

  • We will find the best Wordpress theme to suit your business. Since Wordpress themes are just overall frameworks, we will ensure that the layout best reflects your specific business.
  • We will incorporate all the necessary functions to help you sell online, including shipping modules, Canadian taxation, specials, coupons, and more.
  • We will provide professional-looking images that will help enhance your website and attract your potential customers.
  • This package has a lot of flexibility and allows us to offer whatever functionality you may need in your online store.
  • We will incorporate a more advanced level of code for search engine optimization in order to help you be found through internet searches.

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).
