GoDaddy on Thursday announced the launch of the new GoDaddy Online Store for small businesses, where they can create an e-commerce presence and sell their items online.
The idea behind it is to make the process of gaining an online presence as easy for businesses as possible. Businesses aren't expected or required to have a lot of Internet experience.
With the offering, businesses can choose a theme, add products, assign descriptions, and add price points without having to use code.
"GoDaddy Online Store also provides a frictionless end-user shopping and checkout experience - even on mobile devices - with built-in payment processing tools to accept payments from multiple sources, including PayPal and all major credit cards," the company says. "Also included are convenient, flexible shipping options for shoppers, and inventory tracking to help business owners keep track of products."
“Hundreds of thousands of small business owners want to start their e-commerce business every year, but they struggle to find an easy to use, affordable and effective solution,” adds Raj Mukherjee, SVP of Product at GoDaddy. “With the launch of GoDaddy Online Store, we strive to make it incredibly easy for anyone to build a professional e-commerce website, and to enable them to grow and run their business more effectively.”
30% of local small business revenues come from online purchases, according to BIA/Kelsey.
