How do I set up an online store?

There are lots of ways you can set up an online store to sell your products and make money from your services.

We recommend you consider doing either of the following:

1) Configure WooCommerce on a WordPress website.

2) Head over to Shopify and start building your online store.


More than a quarter of the web is powered by WordPress, it’s arguably the most popular content management system to date. WordPress has a great marketplace for plugins and WooCommerce being one of them. WooCommerce is a really well-built plugin, allows you to sell products, but isn’t as powerful and easy to use as Shopify.


Using Shopify is an absolute dream. It is not only a plugin but a whole eCommerce platform focused on online stores. You build your shop on Shopify itself and it has amazing functionality. It is so easy to update products, categories, pages and style any of the elements (even for someone who is not tech-savvy). Shopify is extremely quick and very easy to use. It’s also very easy for anybody to jump in and make updates and changes to their online store. Shopify’s backend system is fantastic, it records an awful lot of analytical information and can help you improve your store based off of the reports it can generate for you.
