Hi there – could you tell me if the new online store offers shipping with Aust post which is our main postal service here in Australia.

Hello Kezza,

Support of Australia Post real-time shipping rates is an inbuilt feature of the Ecwid/Yola online store.

Ecwid? is that like paypal - it doesn't allow you to play with the on-line store before you purchase it :-(

No. Ecwid is the developer of Yola's online store. Yola have implemented this as a feature to their build it tools.

PayPal is a payment gateway and can be used with the Online Store as can a huge host of other gateways. PayPal does have a rudimentary store but unlike the Ecwid/Yola Online store.

You can certainly play with the Online store in the development phase of your store. Your customers can pick and choose swap and delay purchases so it's a very flexible and fully featured system.

Hi Kezza,

Yola have a 30 day refund promise if it isn't to your preference. So yes...Money before you play :)

All your colours can be adapted to the store layout. I notice that you have a blanket $30 shipping fee which you can keep with this store or you can in fact tailor it to location automatically.

You can't upload your existing products as is unless they are already in a spreadsheet. You could however upload your images to the store semi-automatically if you wish and I'm happy to help with that.

If you decide to go ahead, my advice is not to wipe out your existing pages for the minute. They can and will really help you set out your new store. You can always delete these pages later and rename your new pages to your old page names.

Sounds very good advice - I have only set my price as on figure as it didn't have shipping for Australia - however if it has Austpost I would prefer people could put in their postcode into a shipping calculator and get a true price as if they live it Sydney and I post from Sydney it would be cheaper than $30 which is better for the customer as I don't want to make money on postage but just be able to get it to them safely which I can do Registered AustPost. - thanks again for your help I will definatly play around with it then if I can get that option

I have just had a look at your site Kezza and the Online Store would fit into it very well.

It allows for both online purchase and personal pickup as I think you have outlined in your existing site.
