An online store, aka an e-commerce store , makes it possible for customers anywhere to buy and pay for products via your website.
E-commerce stores have opened up the possibilities of how and where businesses can sell - even if they don’t own a bricks-and-mortar store.
How do I get started?
Once you’ve got a Sage Online Tools account, you can start creating your online store. The easiest option would be to purchase a once-off e-commerce store setup package from us. Once your store is up and running, you can easily manage it yourself, while only applicable hosting costs will apply. For more information on setting up your online store with us, watch our demo video here.
Or visit our e-commerce tab for further setup package information.
Seamlessly integrate your Sage Pastel accounting with your e-commerce store
If you’re already a Sage Pastel user, you can instantaneously sync your accounting software with the Sage Online Tools e-commerce function.
Not only does this make the setup of your online store faster, it’ll save you manually updating your accounting software every time a sale is made through your online store.
Our online stores are mobile friendly
According to kpcb.com around half of internet traffic in South Africa comes from mobile phones. By not making your online store mobile friendly, you’re eliminating a large chunk of potential customers. Google also rewards mobile friendly e-commerce sites.
