Online stores are supposed to be quick and easy to setup, right? You just sign up and type in a few products, upload a few pics, and voila… er, not so fast.
Today, online store’s are offered like a commodity, just pick the one with the cool web design and a list of checkmark features that seems to match your needs, at least the needs you think you know you have. It’s all up to you, good luck! Setting up an online store can be done on the cheap but I don’t think most merchants would describe it as easy, quick, or sufficient to needs of their success.
Online Store Customization = Custom For You
Customization is a key to success, your website has to stand out through branding (your domain name, visual design, and marketing) and a variety of other factors including online store functionality and customer service in order to be distinct in the marketplace!
Customizing your online store or website could involve:
- having the website design created exactly the way you want it
- create custom content or using high quality stock photos & video
- creating a custom interface for the customer ordering process
- programming to automate and process orders more efficiently
- connecting in with 3rd party API’s
- recurring billing subscriptions with membership account
- storing customer billing information
- digital download products
