I think I might have found a niche. It will be a product that will have to be shipped to the customers buying it though. Has anyone had experience with Yahoo Stores? I do not know how to create a website to have real sales with shipping. How can I get this done?

Thanks.

If you were to use either/both Y! Stores and/or eBay, the setup of the website (the "store") is pretty simple...both provide setup wizards that will guide you through the process.

As for the shipment part, you can set up a relationship with a drop-shipper, and they can fulfill your orders for you. Some drop-shippers will do full order fulfillment, and some will just do the shipping, depending on what you're looking for.

Here's a book that can help you get started: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1430311096/?tag=tff-amazonparser-20

I imagine you could probably find all the same info online as well, if you looked...

Hey,

Contact me at tom@aptohosting.com or 1-866-404-9090. We can design and develop a website for you that will look a LOT more professional than a yahoo store, that everyone already has. You will also receive many more features from advanced sales/traffic reporting to visitor tracking.

Clients have been dragging their feet a bit.

We originally did this

http://bulbmark.com/index.asp

They loved it, but made some more tweaks and now it ended up looking like this

http://bironetworks.com/bulbmark-new/index.html

Still standing by for their content/images/etc, I will update when they get us everything that we need!


We are also working on another Fast Lane members site (Ray) which is really starting to take shape! You can check out our progress at www.puppyrepublic.com/index.php, we are in the stages of installing the shopping cart. Hopefully we will have a finished product here soon!

Link = no good. www.puppyrepublic.com works; it's just a link to updates. Is that what it's supposed to be?

I want to add that Tom has been compliant and has delivered upto expectation thus far. As someone who is anally detail oriented, I wouldn't let the most little things slip my eyes. Tom knows first hand I can appear to be a pain in the a$$ in terms of project direction but in the end he will deliver what you need, but as for everything you PAY to PLAY.

I also want to add that I took a risk with Tom and his team at Apto over hundreds bids from other places such as E-lancer who promised me the world. When dealing with designers and firms, a factor crucial to me is that my designer also hosts my project on their own boxes and that I can wake his a$$ up via email. Somehow he answers lol. I have another hosting account with apto that takes care of my hobby projects seen in other posts.

So far so good, no complaints and no regrets.
