Overview

Base is a Japanese e-shop builder service providing users with everything they need to launch a full-fledged web store. It’s quickly grown to host over 450,000 e-shops, and for good reason. With Base, users can simply focus on pushing out great products and promoting their web store – almost everything else is taken care of by the Base platform.

In terms of design, users can choose from a variety of free (but aesthetically pleasing) mobile-friendly templates with which to build their online store. A HTML editing feature is also available should they wish to customize their web shops further. Alternatively, they may purchase a professionally designed pre-made template from the Base Design Market. Base also has an assortment of free and paid apps, which can be installed with just a few clicks, providing everything you could possibly need in an e-shop – from live chat to discount code apps and even a label creator for your products.

For payment methods, Base offers secure credit card payment, bank transfer, payment at a local convenience store, or payment upon delivery. Users can keep track of their sales, pending shipments, and incoming revenue through their Base management portal. Do note that Base charges a fee of 3.6% + 40 Yen as well as a separate 3% service charge for every transaction processed. Withdrawal of funds can be done through the user management portal, and users can expect to receive their earnings within 10 business days.

Base’s payment model is simple: it’s free to set up your online store, but they charge for every transaction processed. But no matter how many visitors you get, it’ll always be free to host your store with Base. In fact, they’ll help you promote your store through various shopping apps so that you get more customers.
