Before you begin

To create an online store, you need only three things:

  1. ZYRO PLAN – it's necessary for your e-store to be hosted on the Internet

  2. WEBSITE TEMPLATE – it's like a skeleton of your soon-to-be website; remember that all website templates are easily customizable

  3. DOMAIN NAME – it's your website's address

Creating an online store

  3. Create products

  4. Display products on your website

  5. Set up payments

  6. Set up shipping

  7. Check the general store settings

  8. Check the shopping bag settings

  9. Customize the template to match your brand style

  10. Check the SEO settings

  11. Publish your website

  12. Grow your business

1. Connect your website template to your Business plan

Once you select a website template that suits your needs, connect it to your Business plan.

NOTES:

  • The domain can be connected anytime later

  • Connecting a domain publishes your website, i.e., makes your website publicly available for everyone

  • If you've accidentally published your website, you can simply disconnect the domain from your website template

2. Set up the Lite store

Once your website template is connected to your Business plan, open the website editor and enable the Lite store platform – it will give you access to the store management area.

3. Create products

The Lite store supports the following types of products: physical, digital, services, donations, and bookings. To add products, go to the Products section in your store management area.

4. Display products on your website

Once you add products, they are not automatically displayed on your website: remember to add product sections to the preferred website pages.

5. Set up payments

In your online store, you can enable two types of payments: online payments and manual payments.

6. Set up shipping

To set up shipping methods, go to the Shipping section in your store management area.

7. Check the general store settings

In the general store settings, you may edit the following:

  • Store name

  • Company name and email

  • Company address

8. Check the shopping bag settings

You can enable or disable the shopping bag in your website's header settings within the editor. For example, if you have just one product to sell, you can disable the shopping bag which automatically enables the express checkout. This way, your clients can buy one product at a time and are instantly redirected to the checkout page (they would skip the “Shopping bag” step).

To change the shopping bag language, go to the Checkout section in your store management area.

9. Customize the template to match your brand style

Remember to personalize your website. If you're not sure where to start, you may follow these guidelines: How to customize a website template?

10. Check the SEO settings

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. In short, SEO is about how well your website performs in search engines like Google. It depends on many various factors: speed, mobile optimization, keywords, quality of your content, and so on. Learn more: SEO settings, Product SEO settings 💡

11. Publish your website

Once you're ready, go ahead and publish your website! If you're eager to declare your online presence, but there's still some work to do, you may publish only the landing page (“Coming soon”).

12. Grow your business

To make your business more visible than ever, use marketing tools, such as:
