What information do I need to supply to set up my online shop?
Part of the process of developing any website is gaining an understanding of your business. In advance of starting your project, we will ask you for certain information and website content. In the case of an online shop, this will include details of your product range or the services you provide.
The type of information we may ask for could include:
Product names/titles, Product images, product descriptions, product specifications or technical information, product variations, product prices, warranty/product guarantees, and pdf document or manual to be linked to which support a product, any related products, store categories.
In addition to product information, we will need to know of your preferred payment gateway, for example, PayPal, WorldPay, Sage Pay, Barclaycard etc. We are happy to talk you through the options available and help you choose the right solution for your online store.
If you have an existing website or domain name, we will need details of your domain name registrar and/or web hosting company.
We will ask you to provide us with information about how you intend to ship your products, where you intend to ship to, how much you will charge, rules to help assign the required shipping fee to a customer’s order.
There is quite a lot of work for the shop owner to do during the shop set-up, but we are here to guide and support you through this process. We will let you know exactly what we need and when we need it. If you are not sure about something, we will take the time to explain it to you, and in most cases, we can provide examples to help you.
