Products in your online shop
What is the most important aspect of any shop? The products, of course! You can manage your product range in the ‘Shop’ feature of Hoststar Designer at any time with just a few clicks. Quickly add products, change or delete descriptions, or create special offers – the clear user interface makes it easy.
Among other things, you can write your own product texts, which is extremely important when it comes to search engine optimisation. While other shops simply copy the manufacturer’s information, your online shop will feature unique texts – an important factor if you want to rank high in Google search results.Create an online shop
Create a smart online shop
How many people have visited your shop? What did they find there? What were they searching for? You can track all of these aspects using our integrated analysis and reporting tools from Google Analytics. This allows you to keep an eye on trends and patterns and continually optimise your online shop, for example by displaying ads at the optimal strategic locations.Create an online shop
Launching an online shop in Switzerland: What do I need to know?
If you’re intending to launch an online shop, you have probably wondered what the legal implications are. For example, if you want to start an online shop in Switzerland, you have to ensure the following information is completely present and correct:
- Legal notice, including the name and address of the owner (contact information)
- Order confirmation
- Complete information on the final price and what goes into that price (gross price, VAT, etc.)
- A note on GTCs
Because our speciality is websites, not legislation, we recommend that you consult with legal experts before launching your online shop – better to be safe than sorry!Create a professional online shop
A good shop is customer-oriented and offers comprehensive support. Use the options in Designer to add a contact form to your shop and create an additional area for FAQs. How long will delivery take? How do I return a purchase? The better service you offer, the better your image will be!
Use every tool in your arsenal to advertise your website: optimise it for search engines, choose the right channel for promotional campaigns, etc. Eye-catching products are the perfect way to advertise on visual platforms such as Instagram or Facebook.
