Welcome to Part 2 of our guide on how to completely setup and configure your online store.


Last week we covered how to open for business & sell items in a basic store format. Some of the things we covered were adding products & categories, configuring add-ons & options, and configuring your various ecommerce settings so you can get paid.


But that’s not all you can do with a Zibster store.

Our platform was built specifically with the needs of a small business in mind. So we’ve included all kinds of options to sell everything to do with your merchandise.


This week’s installment will cover setting up your custom items, digital downloads, and services – everything a small business needs to sell online.

Selling Custom Items

You should set up the item just like you would a normal product, but add more info in the REQUIREMENTS tab. This is basically an extension of setting up the product.  There you'll enter in how many options are needed to complete the item.


When your client wants to order a product (or service), for example, they'll add it to the cart and then select the options they want directly to make it uniquely custom for them.


You can also set up Digital Downloads. Here you can set up files that customers can down load after they purchase the product, such as a downloadable eBook as a PDF.

Setting Up Services

Use the SERVICES section in your E-Commerce tool to set up services you sell. These are the type of things that a you or a member of your company need to personally attend to.


Just like the Product set up, the fields are easy to specify and create. Click on each tab as needed to further customize your service offerings.


It is important to remember that in order for services to be available for customers to purchase, you must add a Services page under the Site Builder section of your account.

Voila! We've covered a few more ways you can use your online store.
