I would like to set up an online store to sell my pet services from my website. I will not have any products to sell. Can you tell me if your credit card payment option amount can be completed by the customer once they have had an invoice from me - the payments could therefore not be set to standard amounts. If I can do this which package must I take - I'm on bronze currently

Hello Nick

You could definitely use Yola Online Store to sell services. With Yola Online Store you can offer your service products as intangible goods. However, products for which you can't set a standard price may rather not be suitable to sell in an Online Store.

Do you think you could figure out a standardized system for your needs, like adding times to your products, such as "Walking your dog 30 min", "Walking your dog 45 min", or giving a fixed price for a certain service, e.g. "one dog bath", "1x defleeing your cat", etc.?

Or just explain us your business model in more detail, describing what services you offer and how they would be suitable to sell in an online store.

If you already have Yola Bronze, you will be able to add Yola Online Store at US$10.00 monthly, or US$100.00 annually.

If you upgrade to Yola Silver or Yola Gold, you will be able to purchase Yola Online Store at the same price and present it even more professionally, e.g. by embedding it on a Premium Style template, using professional stock images (Yola Images) for free, and attracting more customers to your website with easy-to-do SEO (included with Yola Gold).

Hi Nick,

The Online Store is not a good solutin for this kind of requirement. You would be better served with a form whereby your services could be listed. The customer could then select such services and add freehand requests then submit this form to you. You could then offer a quote and a payment service if they accept your quotation.

http://jotform.com makes the process of creating the quotation request very easy.
