|How to Create an Online eCommerce Store on a Blogger Blog and Start Making Profit From It by GitHubNg.Com: 10:35 am On November 11, 2017|
Most blogs and websites these days seem to be hosted on the popular WordPress platform. There’s a fair chance that if you glance over any marketing blog for example, a quick search will reveal that indeed, WordPress is their platform of choice. You can also use WordPress for your business and we can show you how to add a store to your blogger site.
Many other bloggers however, still hold dear to Google’s Blogger service as their preferred blogging resource and it’s easy to see why. The user interface is simple, it’s been around for a long time and people trust that ease of use, not wishing to trade it in for the bells and whistles of WordPress.
eCommerce = Simplicity of Blogger
Selling your own products doesn’t have to be complicated, especially if you run a Blogger website. By keeping things simple and streamlined you can sell a whole range of products with relative ease.
You don’t need to limit yourself to just one product type. Selling a service you can perform at a premium is a great way to both generate income and monetize your blog. In the same way, selling small physical goods that you’ve made can help you tap into a more niche market that will appreciate your work.
You can sell almost anything on your Blogger site, but the product you are selling must be related to your blog. If you write about technology on your blog, then you can sell any kind of tech gadgets on your blog. If you have written an e-book, then you can make that e-book available though your eCommerce enabled blog. Blogger can also sell T-shirts, jewelry, skin products and almost anything that is legal to sell.

How to Create a Online eCommerce Store in Blogger:
To add an online store in Blogger, we will be using a plugin called ECWID. It is a FREE eCommerce Shopping cart and store solution that helps you to convert your existing blog into a fully functional eCommerce store.
Firstly, you need to register a account at ECWID.com. If you have a PayPal, Facebook or Google account then you can opt for these services to register quickly.
Step#1: Adding a Product
After registering an account, you will be able to access Ecwid Control Panel or Product dashboard from where you can create your first product. Select “Add a Product” button from the top menu and proceed to the next step.
Add product names, prices and pictures. You can use “More powerful options” to add more details to your product like category, description, color and etc (Adding more details to our products will be handy because we will later upload our product catalog to our blog). After adding your product, press “Save“.
You will not see a message that your product is added successfully, simply click on “Proceed to next step” button.
Demo catalog helps you to expore and understand the functionality of the site. It will ask you to delete the demo catalog, press “Delete” to remove all demo products that were pre-added to your store.
Step#2: Creating a Store:
After deleting the demo catalog, it is time to publish your product on your Blogger site. Simply select “Create Store” from the top menu as shown in the image below:
Select “Yes, I have a website” button and proceed to the next step.
Now you need to choose the platform which you used to built your site, since we are using Blogger and it is not listed in the available platforms. We will select “Other Platform“.
Ecwid provides four different eCommerce widgets that can be added to your Blogger store – Product Browser, Categories, Mini Cart and Search Box. We have defined each category briefly below;
Now you will be able to see embed codes of four different widgets that are listed above. Copy any of these codes and Paste the code on the page where you want the widget to appear. Save and refresh the page.
To Add product browser in blogger, copy the Product Browser embed code and go to Blogger.com >> Add a New Page. Now change to HTML mode and paste the code which you copied earlier. Name the page as “My Store” and press the Publish button.
That’s it, now you can add more products to your store. Any product added to the product catalog would appear automatically in the product browser in your blog.
Step #3: Setup Payment Method:
Ecwid also supports popular payment platforms like PayPal,Authorize.Net and Stripe. You can select the most suitable way of collecting payments from your customers which includes checks, cash, credi card payments.
Select “Get Paid” from the top menu.
If you want to use PayPal to collect payments from your customers in blogger then select “Get Paid with PayPal” and enter your valid PayPal email Address. Similarly, You can also use Stripe, if you have a stripe account.
You can now setup shipping methods by selecting “Configure Shipping” from the top menu. If you sell digital goods then you can simply disable shipping for products. If you sell physical products, then you can simply follow the instructions to setup the shipping methods.
