Sell around the clock and across the nation

Create a professional-looking webstore that presents your products, takes orders and processes payments 24 hours a day—even while you sleep. Homestead Storefront is the easiest way to welcome new business from millions of shoppers on the Web. It's designed for small and medium-sized business owners who want to sell their products online without becoming a Web designer or paying for one.

Choose a look, make it yours, take it live

Our friendly wizards help you get set up fast—no programming or design skills required! Just choose a template from our library of 200+ great-looking designs. Customize the look with our simple-to-use tools (or with other programs like FrontPage). Upload your products from QuickBooks, eBay, or Excel. Add pictures from your hard disk. Then click a button to publish your site and welcome the world! You can add services, such as automatic credit card processing, at any time.

Save time with built-in search, shipping and billing tools

Organize and cross-reference your product catalog by category, product name, or manufacturer. A powerful search engine lets your customers find products by name, price or price range, keyword, SKU, category and subcategory. Schedule automatically recurring billing for subscriptions, services, installment payments, and "product of the month" clubs. Add automatically updating tax tables and shipping tables from FedEx®, UPS®, USPS®, or Canada Post®, or create your own.

Accept credit cards, checks, even cash

Offer customers the convenience of paying for their order any way they like-including all major credit cards, checks, and more. Add a merchant account to automatically process credit card payments with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and more. Accept payments through PayPal, WorldPay, your own branded store card, checks, and money orders, purchase orders, internal department orders, even cash (COD).

Manage inventory and track sales with ease

Storefront comes with everything you need, including advanced merchandising, promotion tools, inventory management, and online payment processing. You can sell virtually any type of product, including subscription services, downloadable files, or products with multiple attributes, such as size, color, or finish. Built-in tracking and reporting keep you on top of sales and site activity effortlessly, so you can leverage what's working, and eliminate what's not.

Sell on eBay, Yahoo! ShoppingTM, and more, right from your store

Claim your share of the 147 million active customers on eBay and other popular shopping sites like Yahoo! ShoppingTM, Shopping.comTM, ShopzillaTM, and Google Product SearchTM. Create and submit listings, track their status, process payments, even process shipments-all without leaving your store. You can choose the listing format (Buy It Now, Store Inventory, or Auction), listing duration, and even when to post the listings.

Get your own personalized "domain name"

Make it easy for customers to find you on the Web, and build a professional image with your own personalized domain name just like major corporations (www.yourbusinessname.com). If the name you want is already taken, our team of experts can suggest others that will be easy for your customers to remember. If you've already got a domain name, we can transfer your registration to Homestead for you or simply redirect traffic to your Homestead site. Just give us a call, and we'll handle everything.

Protect your customers and your business

Protect the privacy of your customers and your company with built-in 128-bit data encryption and secure checkout. This is the same technology used by the banking industry to protect millions of dollars in online transactions. Provide employees and vendors with password-protected access to specific types of information in your account, and improve efficiency without jeopardizing your data.

Get help every step of the way

Our tools are so easy to use, you may never need any support. But if you do, we've got you covered. Whether you want to talk to a live person or prefer to get answers by email, our excellent support staff is right here in the U.S., and they're happy to help.
