1&1 eCommerce Services: Review and Summary
Every online business needs eCommerce features to help sell goods, and guide customers to the products they want to buy. With 1&1 eCommerce, all the marketing tools you are likely to need are free, and your site is easy to set up with no coding required. 1&1 will even design your site for you if you don’t have the time to set up a professional site yourself.
There are three eCommerce plans: Starter, Professional, and Advanced, all with a shop designer toolkit, drag-and-drop interface, and setup wizard. All plans include generous Google AdWords, City Search and Yahoo marketing vouchers to help you start getting your site noticed.
All 1&1’s eCommerce plans allow you to set a minimum order amount, and a shipping price calculator and tax calculation are included, along with a choice of online and offline payment options. Printing PDF receipts and invoices is simple, as is managing your account and orders. All plans include email templates, and the professional and advanced plans include a range of other email tools. You can restrict sales from your site to registered members only with each of the plans.

Some of the major features of the three plans are:
- Starter eShop – up to 50 products, 5 categories, unlimited monthly traffic, 150 GB web space
- Professional eShop – up to 300 products, 30 categories, unlimited monthly traffic, 250 GB web space
- Advanced eShop – up to 20,000 products, 2,000 categories, unlimited monthly traffic, 300 GB web space, downloadable products, discounts for special customers
All eCommerce plans allow you to easily and quickly integrate your site with shopping sites such as Yahoo!® Shopping, Shopping.com, Shopzilla, and many more. Integration with eBay is simple, and there are a number of added features for eBay such as free image hosting, multiple listing options and single-click eBay offer reactivation. Manual customer rating is included with all plans, but automatic reactivation and cross-selling options are included with the Advanced eShop plan.
Technical support is important, and 1&1 Hosting’s intuitive control panel included with all plans enables you to manage everything with a single login and password, and because it is browser-based you can access it from anywhere. There is an in-depth FAQ (frequently asked questions) section with plenty of advice and tips, but if you need technical assistance 1&1’s support team is available 24/7, except on national holidays.
An additional way to get the support you need is Netviewer, which enables a 1&1 support team member to view your screen exactly as you are seeing it and guide you through your issue, such as configuring your site, dealing with a problem, or installing new software. As you would expect, Netviewer is completely secure, and while the support agent can see your screen, he or she cannot change anything on your control panel or access the rest of your computer.
