eCommerce is evolving day by day. The benefit of reaching international customers is alluring. With this booming expansion in mind, many businesses are finally setting up online stores. However an eCommerce Magento webshop requires a few steps. Let’s see what should be done to setup the online business.
Setting up a Magento webshop
Find out which version of Magento is suitable for your business. Magento 2 comes in two flavors – Open Source and Commerce. At Aspiration Hosting, our Magento experts will be able to assess your business needs and recommend the right Magento package.
Choose your host. The Magento program doesn’t come with hosting services. This is a good thing as you can now explore the hosting market and select the host that is right for your business. Remember Magento is a huge program. A minimum of 25GB should be there for disk space.
Aspiration Hosting has both cloud hosting plans and dedicated cloud servers for your Magento webshop. Along with this we have a fully managed Magento SAAS plan. Our servers are located in London, California, Singapore and also Sydney.
Select a theme that is both responsive and clean in code. This will help speed up the page on all devices. Along with this look out for themes that are bundled with extensions. This is another way to speed up your site. Also look for features like image zoom, intuitive contact form, layered menu, SEO and so on. Check out sites like themeforest, template monster and the official Magento marketplace.
Choose your extensions wisely. Make a list of all the features your Magento webshop should have. For clothing and shoes, one of the most important is swatches. This allows your customers to choose their preferred color and size.
And finally add your FAQ, return policy, contact information and business location. This humanizes your store to your customers, and also allows them to understand you are close at hand if any issues come up.
