How to make your own online store for free in South Africa?

You may think that you need to be a nerd and full time coder to create your own online store, but all you need is a few minutes! Best of all, you can sign up for a free trial to see if you like our service before commiting. There are no strings attached and you don’t even have to fill in your credit card details to get going.

If that sounds too good to be true, well it isn't! Get started with BENIMBLE eCommerce Platfrom in 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Sign up quickly

Head to our ecommerce platfrom site and click on “Start 14 day free trial”. This will take you to a registration page, where you’ll set up your login details and pick a name for your store. Don’t stress too much about what you call it though – you can always change your mind later on.

Step 2: Choose your URL

This is the unique address where your shop will live online. Ideally, it should be your brand’s name. If you already have a website and domain, then we can help you link your online store to your site for a smooth shopping experience.

Don’t stress if you don’t have a website – you can still have a unique name for your store that ends in myeshop.site. For example, if your shop’s name is Cool Cats, your store would be coolcats.myeshop.site.

If you’re at all unsure about which option is best for you, we’re here to help! Get in touch and we’ll walk you through the pros and cons for your business, helping you figure out the best solution for your online store.
