Please feel free to contact us, we don’t bite and would love to hear from you.
Who are iCrystals?
We founded iCrystals eleven years ago in 2003 and developed iCrystals into a thriving online crystals shop. We are husband and wife team Susan and Richard Senior and our main business now is web design and development. We currently run iFamily, a web design agency specialising in WordPress fuelled websites.
Why are we selling iCrystals?
iFamily is now a full-time business and we don’t have the time or energy to give to iCrystals. So we are sadly letting it go. On the upside this offers a unique opportunity for an entrepreneur to really develop the brand and build on what we have created.
What is included in the iCrystals sale?
Everything, except the products! The new owner will get The iCrystals.co.uk domain name, the eCommerce website and a license to use all images and text copy on this domain. The product images have been licensed by Shutterstock. The sale includes the premium Genesis framework and this custom child theme built on it.
How was the website built?
The website was built using the world’s most popular content management system, WordPress. Developed on the Genesis Framework it is secure, fast and search engine optimised. eCommerce functionality (the shop) was developed using the WooCommerce plugin. Which has now become the industry standard for professional WordPress commerce systems.
Is hosting included in the sale?
No. You can easily find a compatible host. We recommended WP Engine. They offer a very secure and fast hosting environment. WooThemes the creators of WooCommerce host on WPEngine too, so you should be in good hands.
Is installation included?
No, but talk to us, we might be able to offer you a good deal.
What can the new owner do with the iCrystals.co.uk domain name?
Anything they like. It could be something totally different from what the brand was originally designed.
What type of products could be sold in the iCrystals shop?
Well, this is a UK domain name, so anything conforming to the laws of the United Kingdom. We would not recommend you do a ‘Breaking Bad’ with it. No crystal meth here thank you very much! Walter and Jesse, this is not for you! Crystal meth aside you could use it to sell any type of crystal or glass product, such as:
- Crystal, quartz, rock and precious stones
- 3D glass products
- Designer and fashion jewellery
- Gifts and presents
- Holistic and new age items
The only limit is your imagination. It could be a software product or service.
How can the shop take payments?
Paypal and most other payment gateways offer WooCommerce support. Some you might have to pay a relatively small amount for the WooCommerce add-on.
How easy is it to add products or change content?
WordPress is easy to use. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can change or create a WordPress page. Managing your stock inventory, adding images and such like is straightforward too thanks to WooCommerce. There are many YouTube tutorials available to help you get started.
