eCommerce Made Easy


Attention all Website Owners – Do you have a website that you have been thinking about turning into an ecommerce site, but it is too hard or you are not sure where to start.

Traditionally in order to set up an ecommerce website you needed to be a webmaster guru, or you needed to pay someone to do it all for you, which could often turn out to be a big expense.

There are a number of very good free ecommerce solutions available on the internet, but in order to customize these to suit the look and feel of your business you need to have a good working knowledge of website programming languages. And trying to add these to your blog or Facebook page was usually not worth the hassle.

Well, the good news is there is a simple and effective way to now add ecommerce shipping software to almost any kind of website without needing a comprehensive knowledge of website programming. Over the last week I have had the opportunity to review Wazala. Wazala really changes the face of ecommerce and makes it accessible to all website owners. In a similar way to what sites like Blogger and Squidoo allow almost anyone to create a website, now Wazala allows almost anyone to add a multi carrier shipping software to their website.

Wazala will easily integrate into your existing website by pasting small snippets of HTML code into your website. This takes away a lot of the hassle of having to customize an existing ecommerce cart template to match your website. It also allows you to add the code onto any website that will allow you to add HTML code including your blog or even your Facebook page.

Wazala also allows you to tailor the size of your ecommerce site to meet your needs, and will cater for both physical and downloadable electronic products. One of the biggest challenges I have found with ecommerce shopping carts is that some only allow you to sell physical products and some only allow you to sell electronic products, but very few of them allow you to do both.

Wazala allows you to manage your monthly spend based on the number of products that you are selling and the types of features that you require, again allowing you to tailor the product to suit your individual needs.

A few years ago, in order to have a website on the internet you really needed to be a web designer or you needed to pay someone to create it for you. I had my first local site Roof Repair Salt Lake City created by a web designer… now, with platforms like Blogger, Squidoo, Hub Pages and others, anyone can make a website. Add some content and some images and some styling and in almost no time and for no cost you can have a website.

Unfortunately adding ecommerce facilities or creating an ecommerce website up until now has required that you pay someone or have a good knowledge of programming languages like PHP and javascript. The good news is I think that over the next couple of years, websites like Wazala are going to make ecommerce accessible to everyone. More and more people are ordering more and more products on the internet, including commercial roofing if you can belive that, and there is now no reason at all for you to miss out on the opportunity of selling products over the web.
