The internet generates more money and business every year, it is now a big part of the global economy. From the multi-billion dollar corporation to the store next door everyone is getting a piece of the world wild pie. The following text has one goal and it is to demystify everything involving the creation of an online store and perhaps give you the motivation to set up your own.
The first thing you need to know about setting up a E-Commerce is that it’s very cheap, in fact its free if you already have a web hosting account that support MySQL database and plan on using PayPal as payment method. If you don’t have a domain name you can get one for 7$ a year and a web hosting account for less than 10$ a month. I strongly suggest you to get a hosting service that come with fantastico, the installation process will be much more faster and easier. If you plan on getting direct credit cards payment you need to buy a SSL certificate, if your server doesn’t have one, this is usually around 50$ a year. Note that you can take credit card payments with PayPal without having to buy a SSL certificate.
OK now you have your web hosting account and a domain name next step is the installation. If you have fantastico, on your hosting panel (cPanel) you just need to select one of the three supported store (cubecart, Os Commerce and Zen Cart). Each store have there advantages. I personally use Zen cart because of the payments method options. Next you need to choose the domain name and directory where you want the store to be installed. You will be asked to choose a username and password and then you click install, that’s it. If you don’t have fantastico, first check if your hosting company has E-Commerce support, if not you just need to go directly to one of the store website and download the files for free and follow there installation tutorial. If you experience any problems during or after the installation you can always get help in there community forum.
Finally you need to setup your store, to do so you will have to login into your E-Commerce as an administrator. The first thing to do is to choose how you gonna receive payments from your customers. There are many options, for example in Zen Cart 1.3.8 just to name a few, you have PayPal Website Payments (With credit card support), e-check, (SIM), Check/Money order, you can add as many you want. If you gonna ship items you also have many options such as flat fee, per items, zone rates etc. At last you need to add your products in the catalog with the description, price and picture Et Voilà your store is up and running. There are many other settings however those are the main one to get use to in the beginning.…
Like many brands that have an online store, Chanel has its own online shop as well. The online store has all the products listed on it with great images. One can simply browse through the many products and click on the images to enjoy an expanded view to look at more details. The overall navigation of the pages is smooth, with all the items classified under categories for convenience and easy search. For instance, when you click on the shoes link, you will get more options such as casual shoes, pumps, sneakers, slippers, sandals etc. Similarly, you can easily navigate through the watches, handbags and all other items on sale.
The best days to make your purchases on the Chanel online store are the sale days. Chanel offers some great discounts on its online shop from time to time. For instance, there are discounts up to 75% on the Memorial Day sale. There are even better discounts on other occasions, and it is always good to keep yourself updated with the latest offers to avail maximum benefits.
The shipping of the items purchased from the Chanel online store is done worldwide, and is for free. Besides, there is a guarantee of complete satisfaction to you, with a facility of money back as well in case you do not feel satisfied with your purchase or delivery. There are various payment options for you to choose from, and there is complete safety guaranteed over the information that you enter on the website regarding your credit cards and bank accounts.
The Chanel online shop also has a special section of information for those who would like to know how to care for their Chanel handbags. Many people buy their favourite handbags, but the life of those handbags is short because of poor handling or lack of knowledge on how to care for them. This is why Chanel lists out steps in detail as to how one should care for a handbag and make sure that it looks great for a long time.
There are also some FAQs listed on the website for those who have some queries. Moreover, if someone feels that they need more assistance, then they can contact the store with the help of an email address provided.
Overall, it is recommended that one buys items from the Chanel online store instead of an actual outlet because the website itself says that the products are made from overstock material in the factory and then sold online. This means that they are cheaper than what you may get them for at a retail store.…
