Selling your products and services online doesn’t have to be difficult. Using an Online Shopping Cart Builder can help you get a website up and running quickly and easily…and it is an affordable solution when considering the technical requirements and maintenance necessary for more custom options. With this service, you can simply “point and click” your way to a professionally developed shopping cart focused website.
This article is intended for sites that intend to sell goods or services online…if you just need a website builder to create an informational website, look into our Online Website Builder (there is less you need to know, and it is more affordable). Also, for those of you who are prepared to take on a bigger learning curve to get an incredible website with more flexibility and options, take a look here.
Now, let’s talk about how to get your shopping cart website online using our Online Shopping Cart Builder service!
- We have to begin by getting your Domain Name Registered – even if you are not ready to proceed with the website. Domain names are not very expensive and it would be a shame if someone else were to register the domain before you could – it happens!
- If you intend to accept credit cards by way of a Merchant Account (learn more about accepting credit cards here!), then you will need to secure your site with an SSL Certificate. You can learn more about SSL Certificates, or buy one now. Keep in mind that if you plan on accepting credit cards only through a third party service like PayPal, you do not need to have an SSL certificate – this is because the transaction is processed securely on their servers.
- Now we can talk about the actual Shopping Cart Program. You can get started there now, or continue to learn more about our Online Shopping Cart Builder below.
