Do You Need Your Own E-Commerce Website?

When it comes to creating an online retail store there are many options to choose from but they all basically boil down to either paying someone else thousands of dollars to create a custom store, or using a platform like Storbie and building it yourself.

So what do you do when you don't have thousands to spend and when DIY is not really an option either? Perhaps you just don't know where to begin, or (more likely) you are more than capable of doing it yourself but with everything else that you are currently doing to keep your business going, there are simply not enough hours left in the day to even consider adding e-commerce into the mix.

Well, that's where I come in.  

Not Just Red Ones Ltd works in partnership with Storbie - New Zealand's very own online retail platform - to fill the gap between DIY, and expensive custom solutions and give you all the help you need to get your very own online shop up and running.

A typical store setup includes:

  • Overall site design including your Home and Contact pages.  
  • Set up of Products or Product Categories
  • Loading of up to 10 individual products, including images (provided by you) and product variations such as size and colour.  (You can of course have thousands of products if you wish - the first 10 are just to get you started.) 
  • Shipping regions and shipping costs.
  • Payment options and checkout text.
  • Inclusion of your terms and conditions of sale. 


I can also help you to arrange:

  • Purchase of a custom domain name, and domain specific email address.  Note: cost of domain name and email services are additional. 
  • Xero and/or Vend integration.


But I don't stop there!

After your store goes live if you find that you need a bit of hands-on help maintaining or updating your store I am available to help.  (Hourly charges apply.)

That all sounds wonderful, but what does it cost?

A basic store build costs around NZ$ 1,000.  There is also an additional monthly webhosting fee (paid directly to Storbie) of NZ$35 + GST (for stores with up to 500 products)*.

Once your store is live, any additional work you ask me to do for you (for example, editing and updating your store) is billed on an hourly rate (currently NZ$65 per hour).  

*Other pricing options apply to stores with over 500 products.  You can find more information about Storbie pricing here

Getting started in the world of e-commerce can be a big step, but it needn't be a difficult or expensive one.  In fact, with my help it may be the easiest step you take.
