This is a brief overview of the basic steps involved in creating a shop and switching on a website shopping basket.
A superhero is only super because he or she stands out amongst the crowd. If we were a planet of flying, teleporting, time-freezing super-strong aliens, then we wouldn’t think there was anything super about us. When it comes to using formatting methods such as bold, italics, capitals or centering, all of these little text-enhancing superheroes will only stand out if they are used sparingly, in the right place, and when absolutely necessary…
Reviews, testimonials, recommendations – we all seek reassurance in them. We might even skip past the good ones just to see if there are any bad ones.Other people are sources of information for us. They can tell us whether this product or service is actually any good or not. Reading their testimonials builds trust in your business.
If I have multiple domain names, will my website rank better on the search engines? Will I be more likely to draw in extra traffic? Will my website become a supercharged powerhouse bursting with domain names that will become a magnet for new business? The answer might not be quite as positive as you would expect, but hopefully we can answer your questions during this article…
Choosing a domain name for your new business may not be as simple as you think. Most people just use their company name, but unless your branding is well recognised, this may work against you…
Is it possible for your business website to look too good? Too polished? Too slick? Too posh?

When July 2018 hits, Google Chrome will make sure a strong warning will pop up on any website that has not yet updated from “http” to “https”. The warning will include something along the lines of “Website Not Secure”. Here’s how to avoid it.
Chances are you’re reading this post on your mobile device, right? I bet it’s easy to read and easier yet to navigate.
But how does your own site look on your phone?
Step 4 in the website editor is responsible for the inputting and categorisation of your products or ITEMS.
Click Step4 and follow the entry wizard. One-by-one you will enter your items into a database that is organised into categories, or GROUPS. Eg if you were selling clothes then your groups might be shoes, dresses, shirts etc. Each item you enter must have a unique name, image, price, code and description. You can easily edit your items and switch them between groups and setup options such as different colours and sizes, bulk discounts and related items to be sold together.
Your website will display each item on its own professional page, with the information you entered laid out alongside a perfectly sized image.
Once you have entered your items, you can consider your website structure. You need to create a user journey that will take your customers to the products they want. The yellow hyperlink icon can help you create links to the group and item pages.
Click the shopping basket button on the left and switch on your basket. This single click will add a shopping basket to each of your items. You will then be sent two emails. These show you how to initialise your basket and make configuration changes.
To add paypal, just login to your shopping basket (following the instructions in the emails) and add the email address that you use with your Paypal account and the shopping basket will do the rest.
It is a good idea to thoroughly test your new shop. Make sure that everything works as expected.
We recommend creating a low cost item for about 10p and then asking friends and family to purchase through their own PayPal accounts.
