For a non techie like me, I have a huge learning curve to overcome when I started messing with the intricacies of web hosting, websites and everything else that comes with it. As I have probably mentioned before, I am still working on trying to get my husband’s website up and running. It isn’t a matter of installing WordPress like I did for my blogs, he wants to be able to sell his art online, so I have been looking at several ecommerce solutions. Some of them are free and some of them come with a fee; but always my main priority is their user friendliness. If I can’t understand the jargon or if the platform looks totally foreign to me then I move on to something else.
Ashopcommerce.com has a shopping cart software that is both user friendly and affordable, which they start off by offering a free 10-day trial so you can test drive the program. Also, there in no installation required with this software since it is a web based software. You can be selling from your online store before you know it. With this shopping cart software, you can accept payment from any major credit cards and if you use Paypal, this software includes built in SSL protection which is what gives you checkout security.
More importantly for me, they provide lots of customer support and if you wish, the design of your online story is also fully customizable.
