eBay Refugees – Where do we go from here?

Posted on May 9, 2008. Filed under: Tips & Hints - Website Sales | Tags: , , , , , |

In January 2008, eBay announced major changes that would be even more detrimental to eBay sellers than ever before.  As a result, there are more folks than ever trying to figure out what to do next and where to go.  The mass exodus of eBay sellers, both large and small, has earned them the label of “eBay Refugee”.
As someone who has had their own ecommerce websites for many years, I know the work and dedication involved in creating an independent ecommerce website and I also know the great rewards it can bring.  When eBay announced the changes in January, I committed to creating 2 or 3 more new ecommerce websites to pull my current eBay customers away and push them toward my own ecommerce website.  It has been several years since I first created my own ecommerce websites so I decided to check out all the alternatives that were not available at that time, including an eBay Prostore and an Amazon webstore.
In order to assist other “eBay Refugees”, I am going to be summarizing in this blog the information that I learned during the last few weeks about the options available.  I hope to see you back often as I give my opinions about the different options available for creating an ecommerce website and tell you which ecommerce platform I ultimately decide to use

Blog looks great. Lots of substance. Looking forward to its and our futures.



ProStores is the way to go.

eCommerce websites have grown tremendously over the hears and it seems that you are one of the many that is trying to figure out the best options to create your sites! I work for a company called Bartlett Communications and we have found that the eBay ProStores has been very user friendly and easy from a web developer’s standpoint. Just to be of some help for anyone looking to start a site here are some of the nice things about ProStores:

1. There are automatic xml sitemaps that notify google when the site is updated
2. There is the option to have integration with shopping.com for a fee.
3. There is integration with eBay.
4. It allows you to have custom titles, keywords and also has SEO friendly urls.

There are many more as well, these are just to name a few. Hope this helps anyone who is questioning which site options to use!

Ebay has become worse than a Communist Country. It has bullied itself into every seller’s life and I for one have lost respect for them.
