FAQ – Frequently asked questions.

An ecommerce website is a fantastic option for professional sellers with an eye on gaining new customers online and extending their reach. Nonetheless, online store builders are so simple and cost-effective to set up nowadays, that beginners can start selling online without any prior experience. Anything from rare collector’s items to custom-made T-shirts, to your own paintings can be sold once you’ve decided to set up an ecommerce store. Luckily, it’s quick and easy with IONOS.

Ecommerce website builders essentially do all the hard work for you and no programming, coding, or sophisticated technical know-how is needed. You can choose a design template, upload product images and descriptions, and start reaching potential customers right away. After setting up with a website store builder, you have the freedom over how you choose to run things and even save on sales commissions that other major online selling platforms will charge.

For professionals and newbies alike, creating an ecommerce store is always worthwhile for those looking to sell their products and/or services to customers online. Keep in mind you can also sell online over social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Learn about selling on social media with the use of the Social Buy Button.

Although an attractive website and intuitive navigation are important when it comes to an online store builder, not to mention great deals and savvy marketing, the way you present your products should always be the main focus of your site. This means that your images must be high-quality with good lighting and must present the product in a positive way. Interesting and engaging product descriptions with as much detail as possible are also helpful for motivating potential customers to buy online from your eshop. For example, if you’re selling packs of items such as napkins or plates, then state exactly how many the customer will receive in the description.

Furthermore, it helps to have an easy-to-read and memorable URL, a simple and logical page structure, and attention-grabbing headlines to make your eshop stand out from the crowd. In general, don’t forget about developing a clear website structure, with informative descriptions and sharp images that detail exactly what your product is all about. Images with good titles and descriptions are also important for practicing useful SEO (search engine optimization) methods, so too is adding meaningful keywords to help shoppers find your ecommerce store via Google and other search engines.

Adding as many payment methods as possible is incredibly beneficial and can often sway a customer towards purchasing from your ecommerce store. In addition to classic options like PayPal and credit/debit cards, there are several newer methods to choose from depending on your location and market. There are also payment methods like direct debit, purchase on account, and even Stripe and Bitcoin. PayPal Express Checkout is becoming a favored option for customers to shop online quickly by avoiding the need to enter log-in data.

Help build trust for your customers by providing convenient and flexible payment methods when setting up a store with an ecommerce website builder. It’s worth bearing in mind that it’s not entirely necessary to set up all payment options when you first use an online store builder, as you can add other methods later down the line. Some options are immediately available with your own business bank account, while others require you to create a separate account with the specific provider.
