eBay sellers often fall into online selling more by accident than design, and once they’ve built up a successful online business the natural next step is to start their own website. And that’s where things can get complicated – Which hosting package to use? What web hosting do you need? What about your own web address? How do you keep it secure?
A new offering from daily.co.uk aims to make the choice simple with their eShop package designed specifically for users wanting their own ecommerce enabled website. What makes it unique is that it’s an off the shelf package which fully supports launching eBay listings from within the management console.
Setting up a daily.co.uk eShop is simple using a WYSIWYG editor with a choice of 100 different templates allowing you to personalise your eShop to your business. Once you’ve created your products, the integrated shopping basket and choice of payment methods (including PayPal, Google and card payments), you’re ready to launch your first ecommerce website.
eShop is set up to supply feeds to Shopping Comparison Engines such as Ciao, Google Base, Kelkoo and Shopping.com. It’s also simple to register with Google so that your shop products will be indexed for search.
The part I like most about daily.co.uk’s eShop is the eBay integration. Once you’ve listed a product in your eShop it’s just a few simple clicks to list the same item on eBay.
If there’s one complaint it’s that I don’t like the templates supplied for eBay listings. There are 100 eShop templates to choose from, but only three eBay templates (with a colour choice). That said they’ve built in the tools to allow you to customise existing templates or to build your own template with shortcuts to drag the product pictures and descriptions from your eShop product profiles.
If you’re looking for an ecommerce enabled web site with eBay integration then a daily.co.uk eShop is well worth considering. They offer three different packages tailored for sellers of all sizes. Costs start from just Â£8.99 per month, and that includes hosting charges. You can also try before you buy with a 14 day free trial of an eShop.
