When setting up a website to sell goods online, things can be a little more complicated than they seem at first. We offer a range of simple solutions to make the process much easier.

Take a step in the right direction

Where do I start?

If you want to sell goods online, there are a few things you need to think about. Firstly, you’ll need to buy a domain name (web address), subscribe to a web hosting service and shopping cart solution. If this sounds too difficult, a good web developer can help you set this up.

Once you have all of this, you’ll need a payment gateway to process the payment. The gateway integrates into the shopping cart solution. CBA has powerful gateway called CommWeb that is pre-integrated with all major shopping carts. However, if you want to use a third party gateway, we are also integrated into all the major ones with our Internet Merchant Account.

To find out more about integrating CommWeb or internet merchant account, contact us or speak to your web developer.

What if I don’t need a shopping cart?

If you don’t plan to utilise a shopping cart on your website, there are still a range of options available to easily accept bill payments or invoice payments from your customers.
