How To Build An Online Store (E-Commerce Tutorial!)

hey buddy family if you're new here my
name is isabella i own two six figure
businesses and today i'm gonna be
showing you guys
how to make a online store with wix if
you guys have seen my videos before you
guys know that i share my business
journey and i'm always looking for more
ways to grow my business
my e-commerce business has blown up
within the past few months therefore
allowing me to have a little bit more in
the budget every month to try out new
website builders
certain website building platforms such
as which can provide
more features than other website
building platforms
the more your business grows and the
more income you have coming in there's
more things that you would like to see
and do
that some hosting platforms do not have
you guys already know i'll be posting
even more videos
about how to grow your business and more
features with wix
on my youtube channel so let's get right
into this tutorial thank you to wix for
sponsoring today's video
if you click the link in my about it
will take you to this screen
we are going to sign up with wix using
an email address
and then we're going to start creating
your site
you're gonna click get started then it's
gonna ask you what kind of website are
you creating
and you can even search like for example
if you wanted to start a cooking website
or a blog
look how many options they provide for
you i just find that to be very
interesting so most of my products are
fashion accessories so we're gonna click
online
clothing store here that they even give
you other types of clothing
stores too so like it already can set
you up in a way which is super awesome
go ahead and click next so it's already
allowing us to add widgets to our site
so obviously we have the built-in store
we're gonna add a chat so if any
customers have a question it will be
there and then forum
is about discussions and community i'll
just leave that alone for now but we can
always
add it later um so this is just more
types of things we can add so i do want
to add videos i think that's really
awesome
because it can show our products better
but we can go ahead and click
next so now we can get started we're
going to go ahead and
use the editor today wix actually has
over 80 fully
customized online store templates and
it's of course mobile friendly so i
really like the look of the kids
clothing store so obviously it doesn't
have to be a kid's clothing store but
we're going to just pick this one
because i think it looks really good
so from this page it may seem a little
overwhelming at first but you are going
to get really used to how it is set up
it's going to show you exactly how it's
going to look on the phone which i
actually i think is really cool
we're going to click change strip
background and they give you a whole
bunch of backgrounds that you can use
here
i think that the avocados are really
cute for my website theme so i'm going
to put in a little avocados
text and change this text so we're going
to click edit text and then this is
where you can put in your shop's name
and obviously change
this so we'll click manage menu and off
the top of my head i already kind of
remember
what my categories are so we are going
to just click rename
and they're going to show you what it's
going to look like as you're doing it
too which i really like so
so here we're going to put boba babies
plush plushies and then the about
shipping and return sections terms and
conditions and the faq
section the home will click show
shipping and returns we'll click show
obviously we're gonna fill in our
um our terms and conditions here but for
now we're gonna just click show on all
of these the overall background you can
do that here but i think i kind of like
the simplistik
look so we're gonna leave that part
alone this is just more
text images buttons gallery anything you
want to add for your store is located
here
then if you guys want a certain color
theme for your store
that's right here so after playing
around with our site a little bit i did
learn
some tikniques on how to customize
which i will show you now how to do
basically i was able to add these images
of my products add the text
and then add the links so i'm going to
show you guys how you can do this now so
i'm just going to go ahead and just
delete this one because i just want to
show you guys how i did that so you guys
can do the same because i think
that looks really awesome so let's go
ahead and we're going to just cut this
out
and then you're going to go to add
then you're going to go there's lots of
places you can go here you can go image
and add one of their images but you're
going to upload your own because it's
going to be obviously your own products
so to add your own image you're going to
click media here
and then i already uploaded you're going
to click here to upload your images
and then you guys can see the plushies
section is here so we're going to go
ahead and just click this one
that that adds the image here then
you're going to just resize it down
to how you want it because i i'm going
to just keep adding until it's like a
collage right here
of all my products so we're going to
just add that right here like this
and then i'm gonna there's an option up
here that you can actually just
hit the link and then you can actually
direct
this one to the actual um page so we're
gonna go to page
and then we're going to click this and
then we're going to do plushies
so once i add the boba plushies in to my
website
then after the customer clicks on this
button
for the image it will take them
automatikally to the plushies section
and what we can even do is we can add
like a little click here to shop button
so i'll show you guys that right now
so you guys are gonna go to add
then you can go to button
and then you can click on if you want to
add like a sale button that i thought
that was really cute or you can add like
a shop button
so let's add the shop one because i
think it looks really cute with the
theme
so we can add like a little shop button
here or you could even leave it here
that'd be like cute too but we'll just
put it on the little cloud right here
and then you can also put a link with
that so they can click on either that
or the picture so just click page again
arrow is going to go down
to plushies and then you're going to
keep it on the current window and click
done
so then that looks really good so the
customer when they're on your website
they can click on this button and it
will take you directly to the plushies
same with the babies i did the same
exact thing for this one so you can
click through the link
of how you can add photos to the actual
website because so you can add all your
products here
like this so now we are going to go
ahead and go to menus and pages
and we're going to just fill out these
sections now here
so obviously we want to change the about
us section
so we can just go here they already have
a layout ready for you here
but basically what you can do is you can
just delete delete these images here
perfect and then we are going to add a
new text so i'm going to show you how to
do that
so you're going to go to add then you're
going to click
text then you can add your font so we'll
do kind of like a basic
font and then you're going to type in
here
edit text about us
here and then you can drag that up here
and then obviously you can change
the size of the font you can um change
the size of the font here
and you could just put this however
you'd like
and you can play around with this for a
while too so they have different themes
um different headings and then different
fonts here
that you can choose to change if you
want to change anything
you can do that here and of course you
can change the color and the style as
well
and add more shapes to the background so
if you want to add basically um anything
here you guys can see again
how many buttons there are um you could
even put like a little chat button if
you wanted to add another chat button
um you could just click like let's chat
like if they want to ask you questions
um about your website or anything you
are more than welcome to put that
wherever you'd like so you can just put
that there
so you're gonna go to menu and pages
again and then this is where you're
gonna put your shipping and return
section so let's go to that next
so i thought it was really cool how they
kind of already like arranged it for you
so you could basically just
like edit this text and then edit just
edit the shipping policy
from this text directly
and if you guys want to add like
different boxes um to customize
this page you can do that too so like if
you want rather
have um it like a more bolded title
you could just do something like this
and then if you want this to be behind
the text
basically what you're gonna do is you're
gonna just right click
and you're going to click um send to
back so arrange and then
oops and then send to back and then
that's gonna put
this circle behind the shipping and
return section
so you can just kind of resize it like
that so it looks super nice like there's
so many little things that you can do
um that will like really spice up your
website so like that's what i would
personally do here
um and then you can obviously move this
up as well
but you can move these all around that
you like to just make it look really
nice
um and however you prefer to do it you
go to the add button you can add images
directly from your instagram and
facebook page you can connect your
social media
like that and then of course you can add
your facebook and instagram directly to
your website
so go to home
if you scroll all the way down to the
bottom then
you're gonna click set social links
you can choose to remove or add icons
with here
you can add all of these icons through
here which i think are really cool
they have snapchat music soundcloud tik
tok so
many social media sites here and icons
that you can add
and then with every icon then you're
going to link your link directly through
here so whatever
you want them to click on when they
click on the link it will take them to
your social media site so this is one of
the important tabs on the site it shows
you all the apps that you can use to
take your shop to the next level
so there's just so many different ones
here that you can add to the site it
shows you a video of how to
use it and i love that everything's kind
of in the same place so it's easy to
navigate through
the ones that are popular that a lot of
other people are using so you can really
figure out what is the best one to use
they have tons of drop shipping ones as
well which is awesome for drop shippers
um you can even add music to your site
which i thought was so
cute go ahead and add our products so
you can go ahead and click these
they just wanted to show you examples so
we're going to delete all of these first
then you're going to go ahead and click
new product so since this is a physical
product we're going to click
that one here but you can sell ebooks on
wix which is really cool
um so then you're going to click add
images so we're gonna add our first
image here
i am so obsessed with the fact that you
can add videos on wix that
is a deal breaker for me especially
because my products look really good
when they are being moved around
so we're gonna add our product image so
add to page
and then we are gonna do change the
title of the product here so panda
boba baby and then you can add more
pictures here of your product or you can
add videos but for now i'll just leave
it like this you guys know how to do
that now
so we're going to put the price so 14.99
and
add the description so panda keychain
boba baby so now we're going to add the
product options so we're gonna click add
options we're gonna put color and then
put pink
blue
and yellow beautiful and that was cool
how they brought it up for you too
so then we're gonna click add to that
and then that allows you to track the
inventory
or if you have certain products where
it's something that people are often
buying from you
you can have a subscription button which
is really cool as well so we're gonna
click save
okay so now we have added our first
product okay so now we're gonna set up
shipping so we're gonna go to
our store we're gonna click on add
payment methods
then we're gonna connect that we are
going to accept credit card and debit
cards with wix
and if you guys want to add paypal you
can do that as well
and this is just if you wanted to accept
cash in person so you're going to go
ahead and connect
these now but now we're going to go
ahead and click on our dashboard which
takes you to
this area then you're gonna click up set
up regions for
your shipping so we're gonna start our
shipping methods
so obviously we do ship within the
united states so we're gonna edit
this here and add our cost of shipping
so we're going to add a shipping method
here
and we're going to do by flat rate
but i actually love because look at all
the other options they have here you
could do the usps calculated rate if
you're unsure what to charge
you can do the rate buy the product so
if you have one product that's really
heavy
um such as rate you can do rate by
weight
um you can just intermix them here but
for now we're gonna just set up our flat
rate since a lot of my products are
around the same exact
weight scale so we're going to use this
standard shipping
and we're going to type in six to seven
business days
because that's all it takes with the
processing time and then we're going to
charge 550
for the flat rate so tiknically it only
costs around
350 to ship in the united states but i
always include
the fees website fees and payment
processing fees that no matter what
website hosts you use you will always
have payment processing fees so i
usually just use a
leave a little bit of buffer for that
and then if you want to offer free
shipping like if they spend over 100
on your site you can offer free shipping
over 100
you could also add a handling fee here
if you'd like to so you can even if you
want to add a dollar you can do that
here
and then if you're someone that sells
locally you can do a local pickup option
which is also really cool
so we're going to go ahead and click
save and then obviously
we do not ship to international so we're
gonna just check that box off but it's
really easy if you want to do so
so you can also add the fulfillment
service here if you're someone that uses
a fulfillment service you can add that
here and you can actually connect
to those websites um to do that so it's
super easy then it's basically
all automated on its own all right so
let's go back
to our dashboard and see what else we
have to do
on our step list here so another
important thing that you want to make
sure that you do is set up your sales
tax so we'll go to that now
and add your country here so we are in
florida you can just look up on google
what your state
taxes so our state sales tax in florida
is six percent
and we can do that for both you can list
multiple different states here if you
wish to do so
now we're going to go back to our
dashboard to see what we can complete
before launching our store
you can connect your gmail account here
there's automated emails which is
personally why i wanted to switch to wix
this was one of the main reasons
was that you can actually remind your
customers about the items left in their
cart i think this is an amazing way to
grow your business and it's included
with wix's system which i absolutely
love
so once you are ready to launch your
store you are going to go down here to
upgrade and click on this button here
so we're going to choose our wix
business and ecommerce plan
so in order to accept the online
payments you do need to have a wix
business or ecommerce premium plan
so choose a premium plan that works for
your online store
so i went ahead and finished my sign up
and they said congratulations your site
is premium
so i do i decided to actually do the
yearly vip business plan because i do
want to really put my all into growing
my business personally
but if you're just starting out they
have those two other ones that work
very well as well and you also get a
free domain
voucher so i thought that was really
cool so i'm just curious i already have
a domain name
but i just wanted to see if i were to
put my name in what would pop up in this
search bar
um so i thought this was awesome so i
could even just choose from these
and they literally will give it to you
absolutely for free so it's kind of like
you're killing
two birds with one stone which i thought
was awesome
so you can kind of just skip that whole
step trying to go to different sites and
trying to find a domain and then if you
have a domain here you can connect it
there but for now
for the video time video's sake i'm
gonna go i'm gonna go ahead and click ok
i'm done
then just don't forget to download wix's
mobile app so you can keep up with your
business
from your phone so i also wanted to show
you guys how it looks when i'm editing
the mobile platform on wix it looks so
cool i actually love that wix provides
this aspect so you can really see what
your customers are seeing on
their phone because most of everyone
that shops is on their phone anyway so
it's perfect
all right you guys so we did it our wix
ecommerce store is now ready to go
so i think our website looks great but
i'm gonna wait and see our analytiks
at the end of the day we want to make
sure that our investment is paying off
and that our analytiks are higher and
higher every month
i'll give you guys an update of that in
my next video when i do email marketing
in regards to wix if you decided to make
a website with us today
drop those new shop links in the
comments so i can go and check out your
new business and that we can all support
each other
i wish you the best of luck in
everything you do and i will see you
guys in my next video
bye you guys
you
