Getting Started With Your Online Store
Creating an online store has never been easier.
Helcim can host your online store for you so that you don't need to worry about web designers, programming or web hosting. Below is a suggested setup guide for creating your online store, although you do not have to follow these steps in this order if you prefer not to. Click on each step to see the corresponding article.
- Products- Adding products is probably the best place to start, as they will be the foundation of your store.
- Store Content and Configuration- Change the store title or logo and specify how you want your store to be setup.
- Store Menus- Modify the buttons that appear in the header and footer of the online store.
- Hero Images- A hero image is a large picture that is stretched across the top of the page like a banner (you can see an example of this on our sample Online Store). These can be added purely for visual purposes and are not necessary for online store function.
- Domain Name- You can purchase and use your domain name (such as a .com name) while still taking advantage of our fully hosted online store.
- Blog- Create blog articles for your customers to read.
- HelcimOnlineStore.js - This tool allows you to embed either the entire store or a certain product, brand, or category into your website.
