Preparing your business for an eCommerce platform can be stressful. With a little preparation and organisation, we can help you get back on track and ahead of schedule. Working alongside our team of designers we have gathered all of the information you need to keep on top of your workload.
Organise your products
This is something that can benefit all businesses, organising all of your products into a CSV (Comma Separated Value, think spreadsheet) file. If you want to make life easier for you further down the line, it's worth putting the work in now to get this in place. A simple start for your CSV could be to title your products, price your products and write a description. With this in place, you can simply import your products without having to create each individual product.
Good image management
Preparing product images ahead of time can really help speed the process up and your website will reap the benefits. Make sure that your product images are good quality. Having image sizes less than 250 pixels (at a minimum) could result in a pixelated shop front. Alternatively, having images that are over 1200 pixels wide is overkill and will result in pages that are weighed down with large file sizes. Prepare and label your images descriptively (name of the product or product type are good choices) so that they are ready for when you import your products into your new shop.
Choosing the right payment gateway
Using WebBoss as an eCommerce platform means that you have the choice of a payment gateway. We have partnerships with companies such as Allied Wallet, Barclaycard, Worldpay and PayPal which all fit seamlessly into the system. You just need to create an account with your gateway of choice. Aim to tackle this early on as accounts can take time to process and set up.
A Secure eCommerce solution
WebBoss prides itself on its QMS ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certified secure platform. We don't rely on third-party plugins for solutions, all of our development is done in-house which means we have full control over our security. We have worked alongside developers at industry standard, ecommerce payment gateways to get the best secure solution for your business.
