How To Start An Online Store, Own Your Website And Sell Online Without Any Technical Knowledge Required

Share On Facebook

Based on the emails that I’ve received during the past year, there are a lot of readers that sell on either Ebay, Etsy or Amazon and have a strong desire to open their own online store.

In fact after conducting a short survey, I created a video tutorial a few months back on how to install an open source shopping cart from scratch for free.

How to Start an Online Store, Own Your Website and Sell Online Without Any Technical Knowledge Required

However, this video got mixed reviews from my audience because it was too technical. Several readers tried to follow the instructions but got stuck trying to figure out how to use some of the free tools I recommended.

Another set of readers were turned off by the amount of typing of “random” commands into their terminals.

The reason I created that video the way I did was to show you at a fundamental level what was needed behind the scenes to set up an online store.

But after some thought, I realized that I went about things all wrong. Most people aren’t interested in the technical details behind a website. People just want to know the fastest and easiest way to set things up and start selling.

Starting An Online Store With No Technical Knowledge

So today, I’ve created a video tutorial on how to start your online store WITHOUT any technical knowledge required. Seriously folks, if you know how to use a mouse and basic knowledge on how to surf the web, you can start your own online store!

And the best part is that you will have full control over your shop. No one will be able to change the terms and conditions. No one will be able to charge you a fee for selling online.

In addition, this time I’m going to take things one step further. In a subsequent video, I’m also going to show you how to set up SSL to make your online store secure and I’m also going to show you how to setup credit card processing as well.

In a nutshell, I’m going to teach you everything you need to know on how to set up a free open source shopping cart from scratch and start selling online without any technical experience whatsoever.

Enjoy The Video!

If anyone has any questions after watching the video, feel free to send me email.

Note: The instructions in this video will teach you how to setup a fully functional online store on Blue Host, a web host that I recommend for new shop owners.

My wife and I ran our online store on Blue Host for 2 years until we upgraded to dedicated hosting.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I’ve negotiated a 29% discount off of the regular price of Blue Host for readers. You can redeem the discount by clicking here or any Blue Host link on my blog.

    I signed up for Bluehost and am trying to find opencart but the options you talked about on the video are not there. You said to scroll down to software services, then simple scripts then I should see open cart but I can’t even find simple scripts.

  3. Just landed to this blog from the link of Amy Lynn Andrews and I have just signed up for subscription. I am impressed of your experiences in blogging lifestyle. Thanks a lot. I am new to blogging and you are one of the bloggers that give me an encouragement to press on.

  4. I added opencart to my bluehost site (I am using weebly to build my site). When I go to view my site there is no shopping cart there even though my control panel says its installed. What am I doing wrong? It took 5 days to transfer my domain from my previous webhost and at that time it told me I couldn’t use it yet but now it says it’s installed yet I see nothing.

  5. I will be in Italy soon. Is there a problem doing your program fro there? Besides time issue.

    When starting out, should your niche be something you are knowlegable and /or passionate about. Or just something that we know we can flip?
