Micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME) owners can now create and manage an online store quickly and affordably—no coding experience required—with the GoDaddy E-Store.
The e-store of the domain registrar and web hosting company helps small businesses establish a credible online footprint as well as facilitate a streamlined shopping experience for site visitors.
“GoDaddy’s E-Store was developed in response to the growing need of small business owners to set up a digital storefront and cater to their customers’ online purchases. Using the E-store, they can easily build a professional-looking website equipped with a virtual store that has inventory management tools, and easily integrates with social and messaging apps, helping to strengthen their digital capability and presence needed to adapt to the changed business landscape,” said Tina Shieh, GoDaddy’s Marketing Director for APAC.
Check out these four features of the GoDaddy E-Store that will help you grow your business:
- Flexible online store layout, payment, and shipping options
GoDaddy provides fully customizable templates that suit a variety of business sectors. Customers can easily select their preferred payment options by securely accepting methods such as major credit cards and PayPal. Businesses can reach beyond borders and access new markets with a multilingual website-feature through a manual and automatic translator.
Shipping options can be pre-set depending on the business’ preference on order price, number of items, weight, or location, which can automatically calculate shipping fees, free shipping, flat, or custom rates.
- Efficient and automated inventory management
With the GoDaddy E-Store, small business owners get real-time tracking with inventory management tools that monitor purchases across different sales touchpoints. It also houses an Online Product Catalog, where up to 2,500 products can be displayed on a sleek, online store layout that capture the attention of visitors and drive them to click add-to-cart.
- Built-in optimized marketing tools and messaging and social media integration
Having a strong online presence means being seen across different channels. GoDaddy E-store is built with tools such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that help optimize site ranking on Google. The E-store integrates Facebook and Instagram to create a cohesive brand experience. Business owners can easily post content from their website that will be reflected on their social channels.
Creating an even more interactive experience is the easy integration of messaging apps, such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Customers can initiate a conversation through a pop-up box from a website that can easily be answered by the business owner from a chat app.
- Vital website security
GoDaddy E-Store plans include a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificate that protects the transmission of personal information data, like passwords and credit card numbers, from the website to the server and helps to safeguard the data from potential hacker attacks.
GoDaddy E-store is available for a 30-day free trial. Plans start at a low monthly rate of P759 for the Starter Pack, while the Premium Pack goes for P1,299 a month.
