Hi im just wondering if it will matter that my webshop is going to be with you, an American company, when im in UK. Also, im concerned that i dont have a registered business, or trademark, only Domain names. I want to start selling things on my website but not sure if it really can be that easy. I also dont want anyone to steal the name that i want to build into a brand or the name of my webshop. Can anyone advise me? Ive tried selling on ebay but cant compete with such low prices. Many thanks.

Hello Ruth!

You can build a site in Yola from any where. If you don't want anyone to steal your brand name (For example, "Ruth's Shop") then you'll have to get a trade mark registered. Here is more information on that: Register a Trademark However, anything you put on your website is automatically copyrighted which means that no body can copy your stuff and to make sure people know this you should put "Copyright 2010 <company name>" (And put in your company name where it says "<company name>")

If you want to sell thing on your website you can use Paypal for that. On the side bar in Yola, click on the last category, which is Ecommerce. Once you click that you will see this:



Drag and drop "Product Catalog" unless you only want to have one item on that page for sale. Set it up (Here is a Tutorial on Paypal: Creating an Online Store) and get it all how you want. Once you have it set up, click on "Save" Once it is Saved, save your page and click "Preview" to preview your page. You will see your products you put in the Paypal widget. If you ever want to add, delete, or edit products, just double click on the widget in the site builder.

I hope this information helps.

If you have any more questions about any of this, please let me know and I will be happy to answer them! :)

Sincerely,
Nathan

No problem Ruth :) If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to post to this forum and if it has something to do with your account and you have to share your details that the public does not need to know you can email support@yola.com or click "Get Help" in the site builder and click "Contact Support" to bring up the form.
