Step 1: Get an account Sign up for an account to set up your online store. Step 2: Choose a name and category for your online store Type in what you want to call your online store, and choose a category to set up basic features. Step 3: Configure your domain name and site settings. Configure your domain name (what someone types into their browser to find your site on the web), and connect your site to your social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Yelp, etc). Step 4: Add products to your online store For each product in the store, you’ll need a product name, price, image, inventory level, product description, sizing, colors, and other information to make sure customers can purchase the product from your store. You can also set up sale pricing, SKUs, shipping, and tax information. Step 5: Turn on payment options Connect your online store directly and securely to Square, Stripe, PayPal or other online or offline payment options. Step 6: Configure shipping prices Set up prices for shipping, including thresholds at which customers get free shipping, or set up flat rate shipping pricing. Step 7: Select a theme, preview and publish Choose your colors, fonts, and configure the look and feel for your online store from a curated set of options and images. You can always add your own and adjust the look and feel later if your needs change, including logos and the cover image. Now, take a look at the online store, and make sure the images, products, and prices look the way you want them to when they are shown either on a computer or on a smartphone (since an increasing number of online shoppers are visiting sites from their mobile devices). Then, click the publish button and your online store will be live on the web. Nicely done! We’ll also check to make sure that customers can add products to their shopping cart. Step 8: Additional features It’s also possible to use your online store as the central location to list your products on major online marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Walmart, Jet, and others. Accounts with these other online marketplaces are required in order to do this. So, for example, if you wanted to sell on Amazon, you’d need an Amazon seller account to connect it to your online store. You can also enhance your store with email marketing capabilities, and even do things like create a brand Facebook page right from within the online store dashboard. Want to get this store listed on Google? You can do that from here, too. From your dashboard, you can also track the traffic and performance of your store. ---------- Want to go in-depth on the A-to-Z of how to make an online store?
