An Online Shop for Only R7500
A CoZa Domain
One Year Hosting
In order to help you make an informed decision, each item included in the setup fee is explained in more detail below.
If you’re going to sell in South Africa then you need a South African domain name. The psychology of a South African buyer when they see .com is “oh, it’s international, so how long will it take to deliver or can I phone them etc” South African consumers mostly trust CoZa domains more readily.
12 Months Hosting Dedicated Server
The setup fee includes one year on my dedicated server with Xneelo in Johannesburg. A dedicated server is key because it is faster than a shared server. After one year, there will be an annual hosting fee of R950. But, as mentioned, the setup fee includes the first year of hosting.
Standard eCom Website Design
This is what your website will look like initially: https://e-commerce-template.riaanwessels.co.za/. Its a crisp, clean and logical design. Content relevant to your business will be added and the products you will be selling. Any design or layout changes will be charged at R150/h.
The setup fee includes 100 products however, I will need product images from you sent via WeTransfer. I also need the title, description, product category and price of the products on an excel spreadsheet provided. The images need to be 600 x 600 pixels with a white background. This improves the potential of sales via Google Shopping.
Third party software added to WordPress & Woocommerce is called a “plugin”. These plugins add additional features and functions to a WordPress website. WP Rocket is a plugin that makes the website up to 50% faster. A slow website loses sales. WP Rocket charges $49 for a single website. However, I include it in the setup fee because it’s that important.
Potential buyers on your website expect a trustworthy payment gateway, a secure way to buy with their credit card online. Ozow is a fantastic local company that offers a payment gateway plugin for your website, when you create an account with them. I assist in the process of intergrating the Ozow plugin to your website.
A seamless buying experience that includes delivering your product to your client is not only desirable but also expected. uAfrica will create a plugin for your website if you have an account with them. I assist in the integration of the uAfrica plugin to your website.
eCommerce SEO Marketing
Search Engine Optimization. SEO for eCommerce has become very complicated and competitive. I do SEO Marketing in exchange for 7 percent of the sales from the website. The offer of R7500 is dependant on commission payable from website sales.
If you wish to change the layout of the standard website, edit it’s design , add new pages or more products then the fee is charged at R150/h. The low hourly rate is dependant on the commssion agreement of 7% of sales from the website.
