How do my customers purchase from my website?

WebAlive offers you the capability to sell your products and services online via the Product Catalogue and E-Commerce features, turning your site into an online store. To allow your customers to purchase from your website we suggest that you first familiarise yourself with the Product Catalogue and E-Commerce features offered by WebAlive.

WebAlive has developed the ‘Product Catalogue’ page template which is designed to assist you in adding products and categories to display on your site. The ‘Product Catalogue’ is the only page in the WebAlive console that will integrate into the shopping cart features offered in the E-Commerce section of your site. By adding products to your site and then setting up your E-Commerce functionality, users will be able to quickly add your items to their online shopping cart and proceed to checkout with a few easy clicks.

To begin adding your products you must first add a Product Catalogue page to your site. From there you may start adding products and items and control other features such as Tax, Freight, Invoices  and many more options.
