Adding your first Product/Service.
Get started by adding your product/service.
- Click on Add product
- Choose a product name
- Add the product description to give more information about your product.
- Add the price for your product.
- Finally, choose an image for your product. You can either upload an image from your device or search online.
You can add more details like category or click on Save to list your first product on your store.
Updating Store details
Add your store name and description and set up the slug for your online store. Updating the right address and slug helps with discoverability for your platform, both online and offline.
Once done updating the store details, upload the logo for your business. The logo will be displayed at the top right corner in your website.
Setting up your Domain Name
Choosing the right domain name is critical for your business. Select a name that represents the product/service you sell. People should be able to perceive what you sell from the domain name. Choose one that is not too long or complex; entering a complex domain in the address bar might seem difficult for customers.
By default, your domain will have yelo.red appended at the end. Connect an existing domain or buy a new one to have your own branding.
- To buy a new domain, click on Buy domain.
- Enter the domain name in the space provided.
- Choose from the suggestion list based on the validity.
- Pay by adding your credit card details or other payment methods.
