Start Your Virtual Store with Ashop

If you are looking to set up an online store and are not sure how to go about doing so the thought of setting it up can seem like a daunting task. This does not have to be the case at all. Ashop is a shopping cart software provider that makes the process of setting up and running a store very easy and affordable. Their ecommerce software caters to businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Taking a look around their site you will see that they provide everything you would expect from shopping cart software. You don’t need to have HTML knowledge to build and maintain a store and they provide the basics such as SSL security, reliable hosting, free tech support and fraud alerts. They offer a long list of features that will cater to businesses of all sizes.

The process of setting up a store is pretty simple and straight forward. After sign up there are three steps that need to be completed which are major, inventory and lastly design and layout settings. Within major settings you provide information such as your store settings, shipping origin, payment methods, shipping methods and so on. In inventory settings you enter in information such as brand, colour and quantity. Design and layout pretty much speaks for itself. From this point you can register a domain or redirect your domain and from here on you are pretty much set to go.

There are a few features about their software that I particularly like, some of which I have not seen being offered all together by other ecommerce software providers. These include no software installation meaning that you can build and manage a store from any computer; you can use almost any merchant account with their software; it has a B2B or wholesale functionality that will display different products and prices for products when a an approved customer is logged in; you can sell downloadable products such as software and e-books and you have an option of SMS order alerts which is an added bonus.

They offer their shopping cart software to Merchants in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom and depending on where you are and what your store requirements are, pricing starts at AU$69.96, US$39.95 and £19.95 respectively. If you are not 100% sure about their service but still want to give them a try they offer a 10 day free trial that includes a fully functional online store that you can sign up for without a credit card. If you don’t like it you can leave it at that and you won’t have lost out on anything. This is one of the better shopping cart software options that I have come across and if I do reach a point where I need shopping cart software they will be high up on the list when choosing a provider.
