Here’s a step by step guide to build an eCommerce store:
1. Purchase a domain name and adequate server space
Register your business, get a vendor's License and start looking into
legal business issues. A domain name that will perfectly identify your
brand should be purchased first using a site like GoDaddy. Decide on a
web hosting plan so that you only pay for the options you need when you
need them.

professional and stylish ecommerce website, at relatively cheap prices.

How you will price your products in your online store will depend on:
❖ The cost of materials per item
❖ Ecommerce web hosting
❖ Shipping

❖ Taxes
❖ Fees and percentage per sale deductions from various
organizations, including PayPal, credit cards, etc.
❖ Flexible pricing
A third-party payment gateway like PayPal should be there to act as the
go-between. Your shop should also be able to accept payment in the
form of credit cards, recurring billing and mobile payment,
4. Set up a secure check-out process and shipping

checkout process on your website, create a Privacy Policy and Return
Policy. You should figure out your shipping and delivery methods. A
working customer service phone number and email address is
necessary.

page and a contact page. You can then start adding the photo, price and
other details of products through the dashboard created by your website
