Online shopping is part of the SA retail experience
From Brackenfell to Boksburg and beyond, South Africans are feeling spendy on the world wide web.
It's no longer reserved for the tech-savvy or the infamous gen Z. ecommerce stores cater to everyone, selling, well, pretty much everything. From buying formula for the littlest family member and stocking up on TP to purchasing big-ticket items like flat screens and appliances, South Africans are doing it online.
Joining the world of e-commerce is an easy way to level up your hustle.
The benefits of trading online are myriad, but the biggest reason why SMEs across the country are adding an online store to their offering boils down to two main reasons:
Start-up costs and operating expenses are low
Forget about rent and staff salaries. All you need to trade online is a website. And all that money you saved on ‘offline’ expenses? You can funnel it back into your business.
There are millions of South Africans waiting to give their money to you
Ok, that was a tad dramaties, but you get the gist. Adding an online store to your existing offline business opens you up to a massive new market – one that’s growing bigger by the day.
Business owners across the rainbow nation are using ‘plug and play’ website building software like WordPress
Market leader WordPress, responsible for over 64 million of the world’s websites, gained its reputation thanks to the fact that it’s easy to use, makes use of some potent SEO secret sauce, is completely customisable, and is compatible with pretty much any plug-in. Yoh!
WordPress websites are prolific for several reasons
There are thousands (literally) of templates to choose from.
The WordPress library is renowned for its array of beautifully designed templates that cater to every business imaginable. The only constraint? Your imagination.
You can use WooCommerce.
Used by 29% of the world’s online stores, WooCommerce is an easy-to-use WordPress plugin that enables you to accept card payments on your website in a matter of minutes.
It’s a hit with search engines.
Dad jokes, amiright? WordPress is something of a Google-whisperer, due to the fact that it’s optimised for content. You don’t need to know what that means, but the short of it is: WordPress websites are really good at getting search engines to sit up and take notice of them. (To be clear, this is a good thing.)
You can use Yoco Gateway
