7 Simple Steps to Start Set Up Your Online Store

Starting to build your store with Jumpseller is a very simple process. In this guide, we will take you through the 7 simple steps you need to take to start selling online. Let’s begin!

1. Define product categories for your store.

Grouping your products by categories is a very convenient strategy in order to create a better browsing experience for your customers, allowing them to find easily what they want to buy.

You can use descriptive attributes of products to group them by categories.

For example: if you sell clothes, you could create “Men” “Women” categories and subcategories also within each of them.

For example: for the category “Men” you could create the subcategories “Pants”, “Shirts” and for the category “Women” the subcategories could be “Skirts”, “Dresses”, “Blouses”.

When you create a product category, a page containing them will automatically be generated.

To create categories go to the Admin Panel > Products > Categories.

Learn more about creating and configuring categories.

Important: Creating categories does not add them to the store navigation menu. You will do this in a next step.

2. Create the products in your store

Now that you have the categories defined, start creating your products. Remember to assign each product its corresponding category and subcategory (a product can be part of several categories and subcategories at the same time).

To create your products go to the Admin Panel > Products > All Products.

Learn more about the creation and configuration of products.

3. Add the categories to the main navigation menu of your store

Once you have defined your categories, add each one to the navigation menu of your store.

You do this in your Admin Panel > Theme > Navigation.

Learn more about how to set up the main navigation menu of your store.

4. Set up the general information of your store

If your customers feel confident in your store, they are more likely to buy from you. To increase that trust, nothing better than to configure all your contact information, add your business logo, in addition to its social networks and physical address (if any).

For this go to the Admin Panel > Settings > General.

5. Choose a design theme for your store

Our wonderful and complete Simple Theme is installed by default in your store. Learn to set it up..

You can also choose another theme from our gallery and configure its options. To do this go to the Admin Panel > Themes > Gallery.

Review our information on theme customization.

6. Select and configure the payment methods you want to offer your customers

Check the payment gateways you can offer to your customers.

Once you’ve selected the ones you want to use, set them up in your store. You can also set up multiple payment gateways if you want.

If you want to enable/disable a payment gateway without deleting your settings, you can do it by clicking on the slider button next to the respective payment gateway.

If you are not sure which one to use, consider criterias such as:

  • Commission fees;
  • Popularity of the payment method in the countries where you want to sell;
  • Eligibility to have an account on their platforms (Do you meet all the requirements or are you missing any?).

Learn more about payment methods.

7. Determine how you want to make your shipments and which shipping companies to use

At this point, think a bit about how you want to get your product to your customers after a purchase.

Do you want to make home deliveries? Will your customers pick up your product in your physical stores? Will you offer free shipping?
