How I can create an e-commerce?

This is a question that I answer every day ... so here goes this article to help anyone who is in the same situation as many of my students both empesas and college.

If what you want is an e-commerce you can manage yourself, you have all the functionality that you need, with minimal investment and controlling your management all parameters without having to depend on anyone ... This is what I recommend:

First, decide what e-commerce platform will use.

  1. If you're going to have many products, I recommend a Magento (See this website -> www.textura-interiors.comThis is a Magento). Ideal if what you want is to plug your web management software with your store or with any other program. But you'll need the help of your computer to make connections.
  2. If you're going to have a few products and you can manage by hand, with WordPress plus ecommerce plugin will suffice (see this website -> http://www.vinosdepostre.com/ This is a WordPress plugin with)

Where host a Web site e-commerce?

I recommend a web host that has preinstalled software that you will use (the two I recommended above, or any other content manager). In my classes I recommend the Junior Hosting CDmon https://www.cdmon.com/cas/hosting/ Preloaded leads most content managers and costs 70 euros per year. Other companies such as Arsys also carry pre-installed in some of its properties, so ask your internet service provider.

Design templates for content management

All content managers you'll find preinstalled in hosting services have plenty of free templates that are great. But my advice is to select one that has a professional design and someone has verified the usability of it ... especially in this case, the shopping cart.

Therefore I recommend buying professional templates. The market where I buy them is www.themeforest.net there you will find templates for WordPress and Magento templates (as well as other content managers). The cost of the templates is between 45 euros and 55 euros for WordPress, and 80 euros for Magento. Sort them by "selling" and make sure you have 5 stars. So you choose one that certainly does not give problems.

Do I need a domain name for my ecommerce?

Yes. Neither dudes. It is your corporate image and you need your website to have a proper name. You will also need your email address with your domain name. You can buy them in any company offering this service. A domain usually cost between 10 euros and 15 euros per year.

Internet (both Google and Youtube) you will find manuals, videos and tutorials that will help you throughout the process of creating the website both in the case of WordPress as in Magento. WordPress is much easier Magento ... so if you have no experience in these pages, I would start a WordPress.

You will need a total investment of about 200 euros ... and have the online store in a few days (this afternoon to enter the content).

If you still need help, I recommend attending one of our courses WordPress. Last week ended on April, May will be held at the Chamber of Commerce of Sabadell and is 3 days in June, we will make one in Barcelona and will be 4 days and we may make another in Terrassa also in June . When more dates approach, I will publish on this blog.

I go all right. I hope I've been helpful.

A hug.
