Wazala gives website owners an easy, elegant way to transform their websites into an ecommerce site. The application superimposes store elements right on top of the user’s existing website. Each element is seamlessly worked into the website so it looks as though it was built right in. Wazala enables users to sell any type of product, including physical merchandise or digital products. Users can also add even more depth by offering options for a product, such as a high or low resolution download for the same digital product. Wazala integrates with Paypal as well as Google Checkout. Purchases are recorded so the website owner can review inventory data. Wazala also allows the user to incorporate color images into the site to help entice product sales.
Wazala is based out of Los Angeles, California. The application was intended to give website owners an easy, effective way to transform their websites into a storefront without disrupting the content there. Today, Wazala offers users many convenient features that allow them to seamlessly integrate a store front their visitors will love.
The main draw to Wazala is how the application works with the user’s existing website. The store is superimposed over the current website. Wazala is also a flexible option for users. The user can begin with only a few products and Wazala will grow with them as they increase their offerings.
The Wazala website has a clean, clutter free feel with a white background and hints of red and gold to spice things up. When used on a website, Wazala looks very elegant with red prices and purchase buttons that fit perfectly into the user’s product page. Wazala also allows users to upload multiple images for products, which can help the user draw attention to their available merchandise.
New users can sign up for a Wazala membership by clicking on the black “Pricing and Sign Up” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The user must select their desired membership plan before continuing. The registration form is kept rather short, requiring a full name, email address and password. The user can also choose from three buttons along the right hand side of the form to sign in using Facebook, Google or Yahoo accounts.
Wazala offers its users three membership plans to choose from. Each comes with a 15 day free trial. The first is the Small plan which costs around $10 per month or $100 per year. The Small plan includes up to 25 products, access to sales stats and the dashboard, multiple language capabilities, a custom domain, Facebook page store, inventory tracking and the ability to offer coupons and discount codes. The Medium plan costs around $20 per month or $200 per year and upgrades to include 100 products, the ability to sell digital download and MP3 music previews. The Large plan costs around $30 per month or $300 per year and includes up to 250 products, customized emails, customized store labels, Google Analytics and goal tracking features.
Wazala is a great tool for any website owner who is interested in selling a product. Even if the user only wants to sell on a small scale, Wazala can help. The application does not require extensive development or programming knowledge and the user can get their store up and running quickly.
