About ShopBuilder

ShopBuilder is a hosted eCommerce platform that takes the time and stress away from businesses who don't want to spend thousands on a bespoke eCommerce solution but instead, prefer a ready made template solution with easy to edit modules.

ShopBuilder is the perfect hosted platform to start trading online without any risks. You can build your free eCommerce shop and access the features required to get your shop online within a matter of minutes.

No domain name is required and we'll also host the website for you, give you a free SSL Certificate and provide access to an easy-to-edit page builder so you can manage every element of your website with relative ease.

All our websites are responsive in design which means that no matter what device your visitors are using, they'll still see an awesome looking website specially coded to work for that particular device.

No. We will provide everything to allow you to get your new eCommerce shop online quickly, with the least amount of hassle.

You'll get your own unique sub-domain (e.g. myshop.simpleserve.co.uk) with our Free & Trial plans or you can choose a unique domain name / point your existing site to your new shop with all paid plans.

We'll also provide unlimited hosting of your eCommerce shop and provide a free SSL Certificate to secure your customer details on your behalf.

Sure! And better, there really is no catch! Open a free eCommerce shop - there is absolutely no obligation to upgrade. We won't bombard you with emails encouraging you to spend any money either. It's free and if you're happy to keep the free shop then you can do so.

Using the Free eCommerce Shop does has restrictions and also relies on a sub-domain; this means you won't be able to use your own domain name (URL) on any free or trial eCommerce shop. We will provide the sub-domain & web hosting required to run your online shop.

All eCommerce plans come with a free 7 day trial period so that you can get used to our platform and decide whether you like it enough to warrant a full subscription.

In essence there is no risk - try us for 7 days and if you're not impressed then simply walk away - 100% free. If you want to upgrade to a paid plan then you're free to do so using our upgrade option which will allow you to port any changes to the template within your trial, to your full eCommerce shop.

ShopBuilder comes in three plans; Free eCommerce which is a rolling 30 day free shop (using a sub-domain), Monthly eCommerce which is charged at just £14.95 per month with no ongoing / long-term contracts or you can pay annually and save - get two months free when you purchase the Annual eCommerce Plan.

There is currently a one-off set-up fee of £39.95 for all paid plans. Full details available on our Pricing & Plans page.

Sure! we're happy to help. There will be a small cost in asking us to perform customisations to your theme but you can get an idea of the likely cost by visiting our Upgrades & Add-On's page which explains the additional services available and the cost.

It's really easy to get your own eCommerce website up and running in no time at all, without needing to know any coding or language scripting.

First, signup for a free 7 day trial and then have a good play around with the site and change templates, colours, layout, products, pages etc before deciding whether you want to keep going with our Free eCommerce Shop or Upgrade to one of our Paid Plans - either paying each month on a rolling month-by-month basis or paying annually and getting two months free!

Once you've decided on the appropriate plan you'll need to pay the one-off set-up fee (currently £39.95) plus your first month's subscription (currently £14.95) or annual subscription (currently £149.95) and then you'll be able to pick a new domain name / move your existing domain to us, you'll get your SSL Certificate and you'll notice all the extra's that have been loaded to your account with the increased products & page limits as well.
