How to Build an Ecommerce Website
Want to know how to build an ecommerce website?
Then you came to the right place.
In this post I will explain what an ecommerce website is and how to build one.
Let’s get started…
An e-commerce website is simply a website that sells physical products.
If you’re interested in earning money online, then e-commerce is probably an attractive option for you. You can sell products in just about any niche you’re interested in and the start up costs can be minimized if you know a few tricks of the trade. (Which I’m about to share.)
However before you jump in head first, you need to know about the one thing you may NOT like about owning an ecommerce website…
That’s right, just like a local storefront, when you own a store on the web, you need to fill your virtual store shelves with products – lots of products. In fact, the more products your customers have to chose from, the more money you can make. And ordering stock can be a big expense and a huge hassle. And that’s just the money end of it. The time factor is even bigger…
Remember, in addition to products you need product pictures, descriptions, reviews and even review videos. That’s what customers expect before they’ll pull out their credit cards. And all of this can be a LOT of time-consuming work.
That’s why I recommend if you’re new to ecommerce that you start as affiliate instead. When you operate as an affiliate you eliminate the hassles of stocking your store with products, and you can still earn a handsome profit.
Oh, and operating as an affiliate makes something else much easier as well — setup and deployment of your store.
That’s right, not only is buying stock for your ecommerce website eliminated when you operate as an affiliate, setting up your website becomes much easier. That’s because there are now WordPress themes and plugins that can help you to streamline the setup process down to as little as an hour per store.
Yes, I said an hour per niche store.
One such e-commerce solution is called iiStores which was just released in early 2016. iiStores is a complete ecommerce website solution that includes your store theme, your product plugin and even your traffic.
