Creating an Account…

Ok so in today’s post we’re going to begin lightly with creating a Moonfruit account –

This stage is fairly straight forward, so go to Moonfruit’s homepage and click on the login link in the top right hand corner of the page. A pop-up box will appear and you can then click on the sign-up link within the box.


Once you’ve registered, I’d highly recommend that you choose a premium service from the options. Because from just $12 a month, you could set up a shop with up to 50 products, have your own domain, build up to 5 websites altogether, and get 20G bandwidth plus much more. Take a look at the options below, screenshot from their website.


I want to show you just how powerful Moonfruit really is for creating a fully functional ecommerce website, so I’ll be using their most popular Plus-Package throughout these coming tutorials, and to be frank that is the package I’d recommend to get all of the features SiteMaker has to offer.

Stay tuned for the next post where we’ll dive into launching your website on how to build an ecommerce website…
