FAQ – Frequently asked questions

An ecommerce website is a fantastic option for professional sellers with an eye on gaining new customers online and extending their reach. Nonetheless, it's so easy to set up a website builder with an online store nowadays that beginners can start selling online without any prior experience. Anything from rare collectors’ items and custom-made T-shirts, to your own paintings can be sold once you’ve decided to set up an online store as your website.

An ecommerce website builder essentially does all the hard work for you and no programming, coding, or extensive technical know-how is necessary. You can choose a design template, upload product images and descriptions, and start reaching potential customers right away. After setting up your shop with an ecommerce website builder, you have the freedom over how you choose to run things and even save on sales commissions that other major ecommerce platforms will charge.

For professionals and newbies alike, creating an ecommerce website is always worthwhile for those looking to sell their products and/or services to customers online. Keep in mind you can also sell online on social platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Learn about social selling with the Social Buy Button.

Although an attractive website and intuitive navigation are important when it comes to an online shop builder, not to mention great deals and savvy marketing, the way you present your products should always be the main focus of your site. This means that your images must be high-quality with good lighting and must present the product in a positive way. Interesting and engaging product descriptions with as much detail as possible are also helpful for motivating potential customers to buy online from your eshop. For example, if you’re selling packs of items such as napkins or plates, then state exactly how many the customer will receive in the description.

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 eshop stand out from the crowd. In general, don’t forget about developing a clear website structure, with informative descriptions and sharp images that detail exactly what your product is all about. Images with good titles and descriptions are also important for practising useful SEO (search engine optimisation) methods, so too is adding meaningful keywords to help shoppers find your website shop via Google and other search engines.

Depending on the package, there are many online store builder tools from IONOS that help you with advanced SEO features. Make sure you visit our page with a checklist for creating a professional online shop to help with making your ecommerce website look its best.

It depends which package you choose. The more expensive packages offer more customisation options and built-in marketing tools within the eCommerce website builder.

The website builder is easy to use and suitable for all levels. Depending on the number of products in your shop, you can be online in anywhere between a few hours and a day.

Adding as many payment methods as possible is incredibly beneficial and can often sway a customer towards purchasing from your ecommerce shop. 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. There are also payment methods like direct debit, purchase on account, and even Stripe and Bitcoin. PayPal Express Checkout is becoming a favoured option for customers to shop online quickly by avoiding the need to enter log-in data.

Help build trust for your customers 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 provider.

You can only select one currency for your shop. The selection is independent of your location.

The highest package allows you to connect your shop to the Square POS system, where users can manage online and offline inventory with the help of the Square POS App.

Of course. In the highest package you have the option of defining different customer groups and different pricing categories for each group.
