How can GoDaddy help me get my shop online?
Building an ecommerce store can be seem intimidating, but if you’re thinking about selling a product or service all you’ll need to do is add your product or service to your store, verify your payment method, and decide how you want to ship your products. Once you’ve done this you’ll be ready to sell your products or services. You will be able to add or remove things you’ve added whenever you want to, and republish your site.
If you change your mind about the design that you’ve selected, you can edit it whenever you’d like. You can change a section or page to your ecommerce website, change your photos, and update your style text. GoCentral Online Store was created with the intent that you can make it yours; and alter it as often as you or your business needs change. Remember your GoCentral Online Store will be mobile friendly, so whether you’re making changes to your site, or have a customer making a purchase on their mobile device, everyone will have a seamless mobile-optimized experience.
How do I sell products or services in my store?You only need to add one product or service before publishing your site for the first time, and generally it’s better to get your site online as soon as possible. If you’re having a tough time getting started, or you need the extra push to get your goods online, you won’t have to worry about complicated website tech--GoCentral Online Store is easy to use. After you’ve published once you can update your payment and shipping methods. The default setting will be PayPal for your payment methods--how your customers pay for your products or services, and the default shipping method will be free shipping, which you’ll want to change if you are selling anything other than services, and need your customers to compensate you for shipping costs. We’ve also added Apple Pay, so customers with Apple Pay enabled devices will be able to benefit from a quick click-through checkout process.
How do I ship products to my customers, and what are my options for shipping methods?You have several options. With GoCentral Online Store you can ship via United States Postal Service (USPS), and United Parcel Service (UPS); both which ship domestic and international and are the most accurate shipping methods based on location. You can also ship using a flat rate per order, which is sometimes easier for everyone, or pick weight-based shipping--which charges different amounts based on how much an order weighs. The option is up to you on how you want to ship your products, but we’ve provided several options to make your ecommerce website what you want it to be.
Can GoDaddy help make my site secure?We’ve got you covered. You’re going to spend some time and hard work creating your ecommerce website and we want to help your website remain safe and secure. It’s important to note that no website is too small to get hacked, and if you’re creating an online store you want to keep not only your website secure, but also provide security for your customers as they make purchases in your store. Your GoCentral Online Store product is going to come already protected with a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), so it won’t be an additional cost on you or your business to keep your website safe.
Can I connect my social media accounts to my online store?You absolutely can, and you should! You’ll want to build a strong online presence so you can reach your customers wherever they are, and get them to go to your online store. You can link to your Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube channel and Google+ account. Connecting all of your social media tools gives your customers a cohesive experience. They can follow you however they like, comment on your store and products, and easily find out where they can purchase your awesome products.
