GoDaddy Ecommerce Packages: Review & Summary
GoDaddy’s Quick Shopping Cart was voted “Most Popular Shopping Cart” in the 2009 Practical eCommerce survey because GoDaddy gives you all the tools and features you need to build and manage your online store. Unlike many other ecommerce providers, with GoDaddy there are no setup fees and no percentage of sale fees either. All ecommerce packages include built-in web hosting.
Designing your ecommerce site is simple with GoDaddy, and there are over 800 design/color combinations and 10 different layouts to choose from. You can easily customize the site by adding your logos and images, and changing fonts, colors, navigation, headers and so on to make your online store look exactly how you want it. Editing is a simple click and type process. Once you’ve settled on the design and look of the site, you can add your products, organizing them into categories and sub-categories.

You can list your products on eBay, or if shipping physical products yourself there are multiple shipping options such as FedEx, UPS, and local pickup among others. A step-by-step wizard makes setting up your payment, tax and shipping options a breeze, and you can ship to the USA, Canada, Mexico and 100 other countries. You pay no percentage of sales fee with GoDaddy, and you can accept orders by phone, mail or fax as well as online.
There are three ecommerce packages:

- Deluxe Edition allows you to sell up to 100 products with up to five images per product
- Premium Edition allows you to sell unlimited products with five images per product
All ecommerce packages are inexpensive, and the price comes down if you pay upfront for a year or more in advance. They all include generous advertising vouchers for Google, MySpace and Facebook. Disk space and bandwidth increase with the plans, with the Economy Edition providing 50 MB and 1 GB respectively, 1 GB/ 50 GB for Deluxe, and 2 GB/100 GB for the Premium Edition. Both Deluxe and Premium include QuickBooks Integration to simplify your accounting, and a free two-month trial of a merchant service account.
