New To Ecommerce?

From website creation to marketing HB Commerce is all you need to sell online.

There are many little steps involved in creating an online business and start selling online, such as getting a domain name, choosing your shipping provider, but we'll deconstruct the process of selling online into a few clear and key steps you need to follow.

1) Choose what to sell

This first step is crucial. It always helps to sell products online that you are knowledgeable and passionate about; perhaps even a product your create yourself. Give yourself the mindset that no one will sell those items better than you

2) Pick the right domain name

Although. in theory, you can do business with any domain name, you want to pick one that includes the keywords of the products you sell online for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes. For example, a domain name like if you happen to sell fabrics online. Stay away from non-descriptive domain names which would also be hard to remember. Click Here to Find a Domain

3) Have 1800myweb design your online store

The design of your online store is critical to your success. Be sure to choose a color palette and design elements that reflect the products you sell, such as pastel colors for children products or a vibrant and edgy look for extreme sportswear products. Layout is an important element to consider as well. It's essential that your visitors find what they are looking for quickly and easily while shopping your store. With 1800myweb you have an open design possibility. Our certified Designers will work with you step by step to capture your vision of your online store.

4) Get payments into your bank account

If you are new to selling online or on a tight budget, PayPal and Google checkout are great options as they are easy to setup and already built-in to your 1800myweb account. The only drawback to these processors is that your users will be redirected away from your store for a moment while processing their payment. After their payment is collected however, they'll be taken back to your store. On the other hand, you can opt for a payment gateway which will process and route the credit card information to your merchant account (bank).

5) Select your shipping methods

Yet another thing to consider is how you will charge for shipping. For example you may want to charge a flat-rate shipping fee,  or perhaps you'd like to offer real-time shipping calculation through a specific carrier. 1800Commerce has built-in support for the major postal carriers including FedEx, and UPS. You can also manually setup local carriers.

6) Promote and market your online store

What good is having an online store if no one goes to it? From large to small online businesses, the key to getting your name "out there" is marketing. Fortunately, 1800Commerce excels at this with over 40 SEO tools, Facebook integration, Ebay integration, shopping comparison website integration and built-in news as well as a plethora of marketing tools like our coupon creator or newsletter manager to keep traffic coming to your online store.
