Using the GoDaddy Online Store Builder

The GoDaddy Online Store Builder is incredibly easy to get started with. And for a nominal price, you can quickly get your products online and listed for sale. I had been hemming and hawing about completing different pieces of my own online store, so when I discovered the GoDaddy Online Store Builder, I was intrigued. Especially with all the different integrations readily available I was struggling to figure out how to setup.

At the time of writing this, I purchased a year in advance using their existing promotion, which makes this quite the steal and a no-brainer.

Publishing Your Store

After purchasing, I was able to click publish for my store and go live. I wanted to use the free GoDaddy domain to host my store at, which I could then link to from my existing site.

If you want to host everything on your site, the Store Builder also allows for that kind of extensive functionality.

All in all, going from initial setup, to purchase, and publishing took less than 15 minutes, and I was taking screenshots and notes to write this up the whole time.

The first version of my store is immediately impressive. There is a spot to connect my Instagram feed, and a live chat feature. The ease of setting up is already a delight.

Connecting and Integrating Services

Going back to editing the page, I wanted to begin connecting the various third party integrations, social media, etc available.

My Instagram was already setup as a business account, which made connecting super fast and easy. Options including a layout like the one I chose, or 12 stacked images in a grid.
