FAQ – Frequently asked questions.

An ecommerce website is a fantastic option for professional sellers and small businesses who want to gain new customers online and extend their reach. Unlike a few years ago when eCommerce website builders required some programming knowledge, today's more beginner-friendly site builders are so simple and cost-effective to set up that anyone can start selling online without any prior experience. Small businesses can sell anything from rare collector’s items to custom-made T-shirts with an ecommerce store. Luckily, it’s quick and easy with IONOS.

No matter your business, eCommerce website builders like MyWebsite Online Store, essentially do all the hard work for you and no programming, coding, or sophisticated technical know-how is needed. You can choose a design template, drag-and-drop to customize it, upload product images and descriptions, and start reaching potential customers right away. After setting up the site builder, you have the freedom over how you choose to run things and you'll even save on the transaction fees that the other major eCommerce platforms charge.

For professionals and beginners alike, creating a mobile-friendly online store with an eCommerce website builder is the best way to sell products and/or services to customers online. You can also sell online through social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Learn how to sell on social using the Social Buy Button and start your own online business catering to your followers.

Although an attractive website and intuitive navigation are important when it comes to building your online store, the way you present your products or services should always be the main focus of your website. This means you should use high-quality images with good lighting to present your products in a positive light. Interesting and engaging product descriptions are also helpful for motivating potential customers to purchase from your eCommerce website. For example, if you sell packs of items such as napkins or plates, then state exactly how many the customer will receive in the description. Our website builder makes running your new online business that much easier.

Furthermore, it helps to have an easy-to-read and memorable URL, a simple and logical page structure, and attention-grabbing headlines to make your online store stands out from the crowd. In general, don’t forget to develop a clear website structure with informative descriptions and sharp images that showcase exactly what your products are all about. Images with good titles and descriptions are also important for search engine optimization (SEO), and adding meaningful keywords to help shoppers find your store via Google and other search engines can lead to more sales. Our eCommerce website builder makes SEO by providing you with editable SEO fields.

Depending on the plan you choose, there are many website builder tools from IONOS that help you with advanced SEO. Make sure you check out our checklist for creating a professional online store for more tips on how to make your ecommerce website look and work it's best.

You can purchase the entry-level eCommerce website builder plan for the price of a movie ticket, while the highest plan costs the equivalent of a nice dinner out. That's not a lot to pay in either case, and with the IONOS eCommerce website builder, you'll never have to pay any additional transaction fees.

Depending on the number of products in you want to sell in your online store, you can be online from anywhere between a few hours to a full day. If you have any prior experience with website builders or other eCommerce platforms, you'll make quick work of your online store launch.

Adding as many payment methods as possible is incredibly beneficial and can often sway a customer towards purchasing from your ecommerce store. In addition to classic options like PayPal and credit/debit cards, there are several newer methods to choose from depending on your location and market. You can also set up payment gateways that'll work with a variety of banks and online payment providers. There are also other payment methods like direct debit, invoicing options, and even Stripe and Bitcoin. PayPal Express Checkout is a popular option for customers who want to purchase quickly without entering all their personal information. No matter which methods you offer, choosing an eCommerce website builder from IONOS means we won't charge you extra for transaction fees.

Help build customer trust by providing convenient and flexible payment methods when setting up a store with an ecommerce website builder. It’s worth bearing in mind that it’s not entirely necessary to set up all payment options when you first use an online store builder, as you can add other methods later down the line. Some options are immediately available with your own business bank account, while others require you to create a separate account with the specific payment gateway provider.

The easiest way to connect your retail location with your eCommerce store is with Online Store Expert. This store builder plan allows you to connect your store to the Square point-of-sale (POS) system, where you can manage online and offline inventory with the help of the Square POS App.

Of course. With Online Store Expert, you can define different customer groups and set different pricing categories for each group. You can also sell on other big eCommerce platforms and marketplaces like eBay, Amazon (via Codisto), etc.
