Who hasn’t wished they had their own online store? Surely and without fear of being wrong you yourself have had this idea many times and not only this … the best thing is to have the store online and be able to charge your customers with card regardless of the currency or the place where it is.

However, despite the fact that this idea is still in your head, launching it is not always the best option or at least not when you lack the necessary knowledge to implement it and in the best of cases you may know the processes and tools but the most important thing is that you lack the time to dedicate to it so that the online store is 100% ready to work.

That is why we have prepared this article with the aim of guiding you through several very simple steps so that you can start your own online store and charge your customers with credit or debit card.

Thanks to the digital boom based on the internet, internet sales have experienced a high growth bringing with it a large number of customers and your business must and has to be part of this sustained growth.

Times have changed because not long ago it was very fashionable to open a physical business if you wanted to be successful, but now the trend is to open an online store.

Launching an online store with the possibility of managing it from a mobile application has become the number one goal for most, if not all, entrepreneurs.

What is the reason for this boom? According to INE data, E-Commerce has grown by 18% since last year, which is an irresistible temptation for any entrepreneur. On the other hand, if you already have a small company or physical business and you decided to upload all your products to the Internet so that they can be purchased online, a virtual store is undoubtedly the most chosen option. It should be noted that the importance is not profitability but reaching a large number of customers interested in your product or service.

What are the advantages of having an online store?

  • Your business will be open all the time
  • You will be able to reach more customers without investing in a new facility.
  • You will greatly reduce the fixed costs of having a physical store.
  • You will have at your disposal a more accurate analysis of the store.
  • Greater flexibility to make any changes you can think of
  • You will have no geographical limits
  • Your customers will be more easily retained
  • Recurring customers at any time thanks to remarketing or email marketing
  • Your business will not disappear

Best of all, if you have a physical business:

  • You already have reliable suppliers
  • The warehouse to keep your stock is your own premises
  • You know your product and your customer
  • Your customer will be able to come to your premises at any time.
  • Increased potential as both stores complement each other

So… What must an online store have to be successful?

Creating your own online store is very important if you want to build a powerful brand in your industry. But be careful… Technical development is not the only thing you should keep in mind. “Like any business you have to think about a business plan and take into account that you will need knowledge in digital marketing, dedication, time and of course a budget ie money to invest in advertising”, Did you know that one of the most common mistakes made when setting up an online store is to devote the entire budget in the creation of the platform and completely forget about advertising to attract traffic, in the end this is like having a very nice physical store or an excellent commercial premises right in the middle of an island.

Every investment costs time to recover the investment and taking this into account you must know how to manage that budget, first to analyze your market niche and then the competition.

In addition, something extremely important is to know how to choose the most appropriate technology company to implement your business model on the Internet, obviously without forgetting its subsequent evolution and support.

The success of an online store is to have quality products at competitive prices, showing an attractive design adaptable to cell phones and excellent usability. It is important to note that if you want them to buy from you, you need to inspire confidence and this will be achieved through recognized payment methods, good customer service and all the security protocols at a technical level.

Knowing all of the above, now let’s go to what attracted your attention at the beginning of this document: Find out how to sell your products or services online accepting credit card payments from anywhere in the world.

Some time ago to create an online store you had to have knowledge in programming and web design, even hire a team of developers, being all this something cumbersome and frustrating.

However, nowadays there are a multitude of options to create an online store without the need of any technical knowledge. You only need to take into account the following steps:

Step No.1: Choose the right payment methods

Before embarking on this world you need to know that one of the main factors in an online store is the method to charge your customers, being the most suitable way to charge them with credit cards.

There are currently a multitude of payment gateways, both national and international, and each has its pros and cons. To mention a few international ones, there are PayPal, 2Checkout and Stripe, being Stripe the one we prefer due to its high flexibility.

As for the national insurance companies, you already know that in the Dominican Republic there are 3: Azul, CardNet and VisaNet, you only need a contract with one of them and that’s it.

Step No. 2: Decide on a good technology provider

The design and programming of your online store can make the difference with respect to your competition. Every detail is important, from the graphic line, product layout and customer tracking to the logistics that will bring the products to your customers.

Think of your online store as a sophisticated version of your physical business, so it should be clean and tidy, all categories in the right order, visually appealing images and well-organized sections visible to your customers.

Something important to take into account when setting up your online store is to have analytical tools and monitoring, just as you know how many people come to your business daily, in the same way you must know where the visits to your online store come from, how long they last, what most attracts their attention and why they leave without making a purchase.

For these and other reasons is that in Pay2Commerce we have created an online platform versatile enough so that you do not have to worry about anything at all when implementing an online store in your business. You take care of your business and leave the rest to us.

To create a successful ecommerce you need an excellent team of professionals to develop your project.

Step 3: Take care of the content

Can you imagine walking through a clothing store and continually seeing the same pants and shirts? In the same way that it would have no effect on you to motivate you to buy or even to enter, your customers would not be interested in visiting your online store if they always find the same thing.

You need to dynamize your products with banners, offers, news and much more, so that your customers discover news and interact on your digital platform.

Step No. 4: Train yourself and your employees

A very important point to take into account is that your collaborators know how to work online. You must take into account that managing an online store requires minimum computer skills, especially web skills.

Your employees must be well trained so that order management and customer service always run smoothly.

Step 5: A good communication strategy

It happens very often that after having invested large sums of money in developing the best online store in the end sales are not made, the store does not fulfill its purpose and the owner ends up frustrated. And the truth is that once the online store is set up, the “sell” factor must be the priority, but it will only be achieved with a good marketing campaign.

The first thing you must do is to have a marketing budget to invest in social networks and google, only in this way you will reach the public interested in your product which will bring sales to start.

You must leverage your social networks, especially Instagram, and make sure that every customer knows that you already have an online store where you can process all their orders in an easier, faster and simpler way.

After taking the steps we have indicated above, you should take into account certain points of interest.

  • The first point is to prevent online business from growing at the expense of physical business. You have to separate both worlds, each business has its own audience as well as its own needs.
  • A second point to take into account is to change your mentality, you don’t sell the same on the internet as you do in person or physically. How you attract attention and capture interest is different, it is no longer just a matter of placing a branch in a specific place but rather now you will have to position yourself on the internet. You need to think about how you place a product, customer experience, etc. Every sale should be easy and dynamic, with social networks being your main source of traffic.
  • A third point to keep in mind is that not everything is for sale. That’s right, digital business is not only based on selling, it requires certain changes in your business, in your organization. You will need to coordinate measurable actions with your trading team.

The moment we start marketing online, all the logistics change. In order for your product to reach the end customer, you must have shipping logistics adapted to your business.

Whether you decide to offer home delivery or use an external company, the main point is that the product reaches your customer’s hands without forgetting the delivery time, which is one of the most important factors in the digital environment.

All of the above takes time, money and effort so we decided to help you at least with the technological part.
