Yahoo on Thursday introduced the relaunch of its e-commerce platform, Yahoo stores, allowing users to “turn an idea into a business in less than two minutes,” said Amit Kumar, Head of Yahoo Small Business, in a Blog Post.
It allows small businesses to set up online retailing, and accept orders within minutes including a payment processing system by directly connecting users with a payment service provider.
The new platform was a “a completely reimagined, next-generation version” of a service Yahoo that began 16 years ago. Yahoo Small Business took the best of everything we’ve learned from our million+ customers over the past 16 years, and applied it to Yahoo Stores to give small business owners a more powerful, streamlined and beautiful way to turn their ideas into a business.” said Amit.
Yahoo Stores provides automatic SEO including relevant keywords in the website URLs, product catalog schema and tools to organize and promote products. Customers can select Themes, new online storefront designs with color and style guides to create a beautiful website.
Amit said that We’ve also introduced a simple editing process, so changes can be made directly to your website with no preview required. You don’t need to be technical or know html to make easy edits — change titles, pictures, descriptions and more with no second guessing.
