The time has come to introduce you to the all new, totally redesigned and more powerful Wazala online store builder. We’ve included so many of your suggestions to make sure we’re delivering everything you need to design, build and manage your ecommerce business! We’re still in beta so we appreciate all the feedback you can give!
What’s New In Wazala?
Design & Customize Everything!
The new store designer dashboard allows you to pick a ready-to-use theme or build an entire online store layout from scratch. Themes are all FREE to use and are designed to showcase your products beautifully.
Design Your Store
Edit every aspect of your store design – including colors, fonts, layout, background, header, footer and everything in between! You can now match your store to your own brand, and current website with ease, and you can do it all yourself, even the tech-shy will find this simple.
Optimize Your Store For Search Engines
Your entire store is now optimized with the highest SEO standards — and the best part is that it’s already done for you. With every page, product or item you add to your store, we create clean, keyword-rich URL’s and automatically produce meta titles, descriptions and keywords. All you have to do is sit back and watch your store get indexed by search engines and your traffic increase.
Build Your Brand Socially
The Social Promoter Engine
We’ve improved the social promoter to allow you to queue posts to publish later. So if you’re not ready to spread the word about a coupon code or a new product just yet, you can save the post until go-time.
Social Sharing Buttons
We’ve also added the ability for visitors to Like, Tweet, +1, and Pin your store! Your customers are your best advocates, and this will allow every visitor to easily spread the word about you! You can also add Follow Us buttons for easier linking to your social channels.
Pinterest Rich Pins
Your products are also configured to include the super-cool new feature of Pinterest: Rich Pins. They are similar to normal pins, only they’re specific to products and include the price and a direct link to buy, and they stand out in the clutter of pins.
Your product tweets are also preconfigured to appear as Twitter Cards. Twitter cards are similar to a normal tweets, but also include the product image, price and details so readers can easily see what you’re selling!
More Payment Gateways
One of the fastest growing payment systems, and the most requested by you. Stripe is rapidly opening doors to many countries and becoming one of the most highly recommended payment gateways around. They allow for in-site payment processing, so you can accept credit cards within your own website and never direct a customer to pay elsewhere.
Our European customers will appreciate our integration with PayMill, a well-respected and highly-used payment processor across the European Union. PayMill is also an in-site credit card processor so your customers pay on your own site and are not directed elsewhere.
The new offering from PayPal allows a branded on-site payment processor to accept both credit cards and PayPal payments on your own website, similar to PayPal Pro, but easier to apply for and has a better price point.
Sell Digital Products
No matter what paid plan you’re on, you can now host digital files and sell digital content with Wazala. We will deliver the files to your customer securely and make sure your products are safely hosted on our servers. We’ve also bumped-up the digital hosting space, so you can list more items!
Much, Much More!
We’ve made sure the new admin area is even easier to navigate and allows you to complete your tasks with less clicks! You’ll find small additions with every step you take, that will make managing your store a whole lot simpler!
