Not at all. We offer over 140 stylish and responsive templates for free as part of our eCommerce website builder service. You can amend these to your heart’s content using our easy drag-and-drop interface and replacing our stock images with your own photos. You can also add pages, design elements and content anywhere you wish, without having to enter a single line of program code.
Westhost offers a standard website builder utility, but eCommerce site builders include everything needed to trade online. They support multiple product pages, payment platforms and checkout functionality that allows customers to complete their purchases.
Yes you will, and one is included with each Westhost eCommerce package. You can choose any available domain name (e.g. mybrandname) with a variety of top level domains (.com,.shop). However, if you’ve already registered a domain name, you can build your site at this address by importing it into Westhost’s control panel.
Absolutely! You can create an online store that sells products and services anywhere in the world, with shipping and tax rates adjusted for each nation. We offer a variety of payment gateways including PayPal and Stripe, and sites can accept payments in almost 30 different currencies.
With the majority of web traffic now displaying on mobile, every Westhost website template is mobile-optimized. That means your site’s design will automatically change depending whether it’s displaying on a TV/monitor, or on a smartphone/tablet. It’ll adapt to look great on any screen.
Yes. Modern smartphone images tend to be around five megabytes in size, which is unnecessarily big. With our Image Editor, you can crop these photos down to much smaller sizes, which will load faster and improve your site’s SEO score. You can also edit out clutter, focusing in on each product.
We’ve made this very simple. You can batch‐upload products into the online store builder from a spreadsheet, or add them individually. Give them all names, upload relevant images, set prices and then publish them. It’s that easy! You can also set variants such as different colors or sizes, giving customers more choices.
There are three main steps. First, choose a name for your store and provide a contact email address. Then select a preferred payment provider (we recommend either PayPal or Stripe). Finally, confirm shipping rates to cover postage costs. And that’s it – with a few clicks, your Westhost eCommerce site is ready for business...
