Add your products in your eCommerce shop

If you have hundreds of products it may be a good idea to create an Excel spreadsheet to list all the variables of your products: * product name * product image * product size * Price * taxes * shipping fees * SKU number, We list the first 30 products for you and give you full training over Skype “how to list your products in the shopping Cart.”

Accept online payments from your shopping cart

For accepting online payments like credit cards and EFT transactions we integrate your e-commerce shopping cart to accept PayPal or Payfast. We also integrate other South African and international payment gateways into your shopping cart if needed. This enables you to accept online payments without purchasing a merchant account payment gateway or a 3rd party shopping cart. Once your website begins attracting lots of visitors and making lots of sales consider integrating our auto responder components and other auditing components that stream line the tracing of your sales. We would advise you of what payment gateways will work better for subscriptions, products, services or in ZAR currency.

6

Testing your shopping cart

Once we’ve built your online store and added all your products it’s time to test its functionality. Act as a customer by going through the purchasing and checkout process to check for errors. Alternatively, find someone that is not familiar with purchasing products online and observe how easy it is for them to complete the sale. After sales have been registered in to your admin panel check if the shopping cart is storing and tracking the orders.
