But just like some genius who thought of Wordpress, a great blogging platform for beginners, another thought of creating a similar e-commerce platform, called Goodsie, for budding entrepreneurs that requires no HTML coding at all! It’s a great entry level e-commerce solution. Another plus is it can be easily integrated into your Facebook business page. All it requires is you to create an account and follow 5 simple steps and you can make your own custom built e-commerce site.

We suggest going for the free trial to see whether this platform is for you. It’s a great way to test the site without any commitment or money paid!
You’ve taken up the free trial or chosen one of the paid memberships, what next?
Here are the 5 steps to your very own e-store!
The layout is important to portray your products in the best possible way and draw in your buyers. There is a good selection to choose from and you can even look at example sites.
Once you’ve decided on the layout, it’s time to choose how your products will be displayed on the site. You get to choose the image size, border, margin and myriad of other options to make this site your own!
There are around 220 fonts to choose from. Suffice to say, you’ll definitely find one that will work for your site!
So far, you’ve chosen the layout, the product placement and the font. Now it’s time to add some colour in. You could either choose colour that are an extension of your brand logo or you can mix it up with some colour palettes that will make your products stand out.
Put the final seal on the website by uploading your brand logo and background. Once that’s all done- you are ready to rock n roll!!
