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 follows a simple payment model: setting up your online store is free, but they charge for each transaction processed. However, regardless of the number of visitors you have, hosting your store with Base will always be free. In fact, they offer assistance in promoting your store through various shopping apps to attract more customers.
