Activating the account – The foundations for your success

  • Updated

A successful online business has a solid foundation. For selling in your own name, you should take the following steps so that you can sell legally safely and indefinitely.

Complete registration

  • your legal notice
  • your payment account with our banking partner and
  • your terms and conditions
  • your invoices

Then you create your legal notice.

You add or activate your legal texts and conclude the data processing contract with us and you are then in an excellent position.

Setting up payment methods

elopage offers you the most common payment methods, from credit cards, PayPal, instant transfer, advance payment and SEPA to purchase on account.

If you have your own Stripe account for payments by credit card or SEPA direct debit, you can also connect this.

In an account in the reseller model, all payment methods are automatically linked via elopage.

If you sell in your own name, you can activate the payment methods just as easily with just one click. Since you can connect your own PayPal account in your own name, two more steps are required, which you can also do quickly with our help videos.

Activate an invoice

And you are ready to start making your first sales! in order that everything runs smoothly for you right from the start, we recommend that you activate automated invoicing.

You upload a logo, decide which information should appear from you and set the starting invoice number and we will create an invoice for your customer for every sale, which is sent by email and can be called up in the account.
