What is Flutterwave Store?
Flutterwave store is undoubtedly the easiest way to create and launch an online store as a busy, non-techie entrepreneur, you don’t need to create a website from scratch or know how to code to own a Flutterwave store. You can manage your inventory and accept payments from your customers online.
Managing your Flutterwave store is quite easy, as it allows you to upload products, set prices, and (for some businesses) have Flutterwave integrated delivery partners pick up when you have an order and deliver to your customers if you like.
Flutterwave store was designed to bring online, those businesses that are offline with minimal hassles, hence the simplicity of the interface,
The Store was conceived as part of Flutterwave’s resolve to help businesses to #KeepTheLightsOn during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Also with the integration of a delivery option, the store ensures that business owners operate effectively during, and even after the pandemic, you don’t have to move an inch from your business location to transact with your customers anymore, quite interesting and innovative if you ask me.

You can edit your store name to something else if you don’t want to use your business name that is auto-filled by the system. Enter your store description, you can edit your store URL or link if you feel it’s necessary. I recommend that you use a short, simple, and easy to remember kind of name. So once that’s done, click ‘Complete Setup’. Your store link will then be generated and displayed on the dashboard. Easy abi? 🙂
