eCommerce Readiness Guide

To be able to open an eCommerce store and start selling products or services online require some research to be able to know if you will be successful on the internet. To build your online store you need a business plan.

Information on niche markets is available on the Internet by doing keyword research, search engines keep track of different keyword combinations and how many times they have been searched.

We help you to start a eCommerce business by first supplying an online readiness assessment to measure your potential market and how you should structure your website.

Information we require to build your online store:


What geographical area’s will you target?

For example would you be selling international or local within the borders of South Africa or would you target a specific country? Your store setup increases in price if you offer more currencies and delivery cost increase if you start shipping products over country boarders.


Make a list of keywords that describe your products or service?

When you are starting a new business it is always good to make a list of keywords as the internet search engines will find your business when visitors search your keywords.


Shipping costs influences your market

Shipping costs influences your market, make a study of the delivery cost in your geographical area that you would like to target, i.e investigate the delivery times and prices of the Post Office or a courier company. A flat rate calculation is the easiest to incorporate in your online store.


Your Terms and Conditions – do you offer an return and guarantee?

It is important that you include legal documents on your store so that you can serve your users the best while your legal document protect your online business.


Do you have good quality product images?

Good quality product images increase product sales, images should be consistent in size and we require a minimum image size of 600px, landscape images display better than portrait images.
