No technical skills? No problem! Welcome to the GoWeb1 DIY guide on building an e-commerce site. We hope this page will be a helpful resource to you as you look to sell merchandise online.
How to Build an Online Store
With Quick Shopping Cart, it’s easy to create an eye-catching online store that accepts credit cards, integrates with Google and eBay, and offers multiple shipping options.
- Tailor a website template to suit your business. You can choose from 1500+ quick start design and color combinations to craft the look of your e-commerce site to match the tone and style of your business. Customize it further by adding in your own text, fonts, photos, and logo.
- Photograph your merchandise. Take high-resolution photos to showcase your products to potential online customers. We suggest a resolution of about 300 dpi so that images do not show up as grainy on large screens. If you would like to hire a professional photographer to best represent your products, GoWeb1 can help.
- Organize your products. Enter your products into our product catalog. Sort these into categories or subcategories. Add product images. List a description of each product, its price, SKU, etc. Finally, choose shipping, taxing, and payment options.
- Start Selling! View reports that track revenue, orders, and performance. GoWeb1 Pro Tip: If you are crafting your own e-commerce site, DO NOT make your own logo. Unless you have studied design, a self-made logo may cheapen your company’s image. GoWeb1 offers affordable pricing on logo design (217-241-8554). Otherwise, simply type in the name of your business in the logo section.
