Ecommerce refers to buying and selling products on the internet. Using the Website Builder from UK2.net, you can create your own ecommerce store to sell products. This article will walk you through the basics of ecommerce and setting up your store.
To set up an ecommerce store you'll need to work with:
Products - the items you want to sell in your Ecommerce Store
Payments - the process of receiving money from your customers
Orders - an order results from a customer making a payment for a product
Shipping - the process of delivering products to customers
The first time you open your store page you'll be taken to the Store Setup page.
1Market your brand and choose the the name of your Online Store - this will be shown on the store page and other places on your website.
Enter an email address that you would like to have notifications sent to, including new orders and other important alerts from your Online Store. It is important that this email can be accessed quickly and is checked frequently.
On the second step you will be asked to choose the payment method you will make available for your clients. You can accept payments with credit cards with both Stripe and PayPal.
You must add at least one shipping rate. You will need to add a shipping rate for each country you are shipping your products to.
