Start selling your products through your own website today!Our e-commerce package is just £75
The internet can be a confusing place, especially when it comes to creating websites.. we’re here to help take away the confusion. Since 2011, we’ve been helping handcrafters (just like yourself) create their websites. Regardless of your ability, or what you think your ability is, we can help you – you just need to let us know if you are unsure of something or need further explanation. Every question is valid so you shouldn’t hesitate to ask us.
How our packages differ from standard hosting packages?
Most standard web hosting packages, like those we offer through Rosier Internet, don’t include the support to actually build a website – they just cover hosting support, such as helping you set up email accounts and ensuring the server is properly configured.
We don’t impose a limit on the number of products you can add to your site nor do we charge any sort of listing fee.
By integrating with PayPal, we ensure that payments from your customers are secure and reduce your need for regulatory safeguards.
Go Global or Stay Home
Whether you want to ship just within the UK, Europe or further afield, you just have to make that decision and decide what shipping costs you want to charge. If the visitor is from a location you don’t ship to, they’ll still be able to view the item but the store won’t allow them to checkout.
Handles Your Sales Tax (VAT)
If you’re VAT registered, then with a few adjustments (which we’ll make when setting up for you) the site will automatically add the appropriate VAT charge on at the checkout for you. Proving that tax really doesn’t have to be that taxing.
No Technical Experience Needed
The system is easy-to-use, so if you follow our directions you can’t wrong. You don’t need any HTML, PHP or even MySQL knowledge – you don’t even need to know what they mean!
Setting up a website can be complicated – we make it easier with a range of tutorials, walking you through step-by-step, and if the tutorials don’t answer your questions, we are on standby, ready to help you.
Don’t Give Up On MarketPlaces
Probably not something you were expecting to see but it’s worthwhile remembering, these marketplaces (such as Etsy) can provide you with an income.
Our packages are more to persuade you to move away from expensive and unprofessional web builder packages, and whilst you can use them to move away from marketplaces too, it’s worth remembering that the fee you pay them can be considered marketing.
Whilst all of your own marketing efforts should be focused on getting your customer to your own site, where you aren’t competing with others, if they just happen to come across your product on a marketplace and you make a sale, that’s even better. Tip: When sending the item, include a business card/postcard with your site’s URL on it.
However spending time sending potential customers to one of these marketplaces is an unproductive use of your time, you’re just as likely to make a sale for another crafter than you are for yourself.
In addition to our standard packages, there are a couple of optional extras you can purchase that will go nicely with your package:
SSL Certificate - from £60/yr
An SSL Certificate will encrypt the data transferred between our server and the end-user (your customers), and ensure it cannot be intercepted. It isn’t a necessary requirement, as the actual financial transaction takes place on PayPal’s website where the information exchanged is encrypted however it will secure your customers personal information (such as address and order details) and can help boost their confidence in your business by displaying the green padlock to the left of your url in their browser. If you want to add an SSL certificate, please get it touch and we’ll notify you when to purchase it from the Rosier Internet website. Although you can add a certificate at any time, it’s best to do it from the outset to ensure you don’t have to go all through your website making alterations.
