Online Store Builder Questions Answered!
How Does the Online Store Builder Work?
Our Online Store Builder walks you through the process of setting up a website designed for eCommerce. During that time you will select from over 1,500 designs and color combinations, 14 category pages styles, and 11 product detail page styles to create the online presence just right for your business. You will be able to personalize your site with your logo, brand, and product images, as well as customize the navigation to integrate your store with a separate website (if needed). For content editing, we provide a click-and-type interface making it easy to keep your site current and manageable.
What Kind of Payment Options Exist?
There are numerous methods of accepting payment with our Online Store Builder. You can use your own merchant account or a third party payment platform. In short, you can accept all major credit cards through the following major payment gateways: First Data Global GatewaySM, Chase Paymentech®, Innovative Merchant Services®, PayPal Express, PayPal Payments Pro, Intuit®, Intuit QuickBooks Merchant Service®, Authorize.net®.
Other PayPal options include PayPal Express Checkout, PayPal Payments Standard, PayPal Payments Pro. You can even accept payments offline with COD, Print, and Call. As for transaction fees, though there may be fees collected by third parties that you contract with such as payment gateways and merchant account providers that process credit card transactions, we do not charge percentage-of-sales fees.
The following currencies are supported: USD, AUD, CAD, DKK, EUR, GBP, HK$, ILS, JPY, MXN, MYR, NZD, PHP, PLN, SEK, SGD, THB, and TRY
What Can I do in the Order & Customer Manager?
At a glance you will be able to review new orders, inventory status and member activity. You can also search and filter orders and export information to a Microsoft® Excel file. There is an area for you to capture credit card payments, enter shipping and tracking information, print shipping labels. You can track product inventory and set minimum thresholds, as well as receive email notification for orders.
Which Plan Should I Pick?
There are several determining factors to consider when picking the right plan for you. You can always upgrade or downgrade as needed, but it is obviously best if you get started with the plan that will work best for your situation. The primary differences involve the maximum number of products, images per product, disk space, and the amount of data transfer allowed.
If you already know that you will have more than 100 products, the Premium plan is best for your situation. If you will have between 21 and 100, then the Deluxe plan is ideal, while the Economy plan will work for those with 20 items or less. Some clients who have small product catalogs opt for a higher level plan for the extra disk space and data transfer. That is only necessary if their site ends up using more than the allotted resources – which is a good thing as that generally means they are a high-traffic website!
If there are 20 or less items in your catalog, the Economy plan is a great place to give our service a test run – it is a high quality service and very feature-rich. If you opt for a higher-level plan, you will be able to have more images per product, volume pricing, a customizable mobile website (a basic mobile website is provided with the Economy plan), the ability to drop-ship from multiple warehouses, and provide product-specific coupons.
Will my online store show up properly on a mobile device?
Your online store will look amazing on smartphones and other mobile devices – this feature is built directly into your website design. Our Economy plan includes a basic mobile website, while our Deluxe and Premium plans provides a customizable mobile website.
How does the product catalog get setup?
You will be able to navigate through the process using our step-by-step Store Setup Wizard. When requested, you will enter all product details, including SKU, description, pricing, options, and inventory tracking. Nested categories is supported to help your customers browse through your product catalog. You can also add and manage product images, including enlargements (Economy plan allows one image; Deluxe plan supports five; and the Premium plan includes ten per product). Build your product catalog confidently – the setup wizard is there to keep you on track!
Are There any Marketing Tools Available?
Yes! There are webmaster meta tag content tools you can use (Microsoft® Bing, Yahoo! Site Explorer, and Google Webmaster Tools). Our plans support Google® product search, Upload to eBay®, Order coupons (specific product coupons are available in our Deluxe and Premium plans), RSS feed, and social sharing via Facebook, Twitter & more. You can even use our Online Store Builder with the LinkShare or ShareASale affiliate programs!
You can also boost sales by allowing shoppers to share feedback through product ratings and reviews. This tends to help search results increase as your customer reviews provide original, keyword-rich content for search engines. Your website URLs are search engine-friendly and with auto-generated links that include your promotional code, you can track the response of marketing campaigns.
What Shipping Options Are Available?
In addition to custom shipping rates, we offer real-time shipping quotes through UPS®, USPS®, FedEx®, and FreightCenter.com. You can ship to U.S, Canada, Mexico, and over 100 additional countries! Our Deluxe and Premium plans support drop-shipping from multiple warehouses.
Do I Need to Signup for a Separate Hosting Plan?
No – Web hosting is included with every Online Store Builder plan we offer, with a 99.9% uptime guarantee!
Is an SSL Certificate Required?
An SSL certificate is highly recommended regardless of how you accept payment, however it is required in order to accept credit cards.
Are Up-Sells & Featured Products Features Available?
Yes! You can showcase featured products in your sidebar navigation, and specify multiple products for a rotating display.
