The Ups and Downs of Ecommerce

There is one thing that I have always hated about e-commerce websites. I use scripts like cre loaded or oscommerce, and they are plain Jane. I have to install the script after creating a database, then I have to design it before I can even get to the actual commerce. It’s horrible. Today, I came across a cool website that eliminates that problem, and it’s something a business partner and I will most likely be doing next week. That site is which is an online store service.

The cool thing is that it is ready for anyone. The beginner, the pro, whoever. Anyone that has known me since forever knows I am crazy when it comes to productivity. Having to setup an ecommerce website from scratch can easily kill productivity and ambition as well. I like the idea of “easy setup” when it comes to the ecom business. I can focus on actually putting in the products, marketing the site, and managing the orders.

Does anyone have any experience with ecommerce websites that go beyond frustration?

    Hello Brandon, I agree to your fact about the ecommerce scripts, running installing and using them requires some extra work and many times it becomes little bit difficult to handle!! Thanks Brandon!!

    Hey Brandon, that’s a great website you’ve suggested. I have not yet stepped into the realm of e-commerce but I have been thinking about it and it will definitely be easier with madefreshly.

    Thanks for the tip. I’m just beginning my ecommerce site and I’m definitely looking for a good script or service in order to make starting out a little bit easier. Have you tried WP ecommerce or Shopify? I’ve been debating between those two.

    I haven’t used Shopify, but I have used WP Ecommerce. Back when I used it, it was complicated and buggy. I am sure it has evolved since then as it was 2 years ago.

  5. As a matter of fact, I believe that Magento is going to take over the world down the road.

  6. Thanks. I thought that human kind is doomed for good by those slower performing scripts that you need to install and set up first. I believe it’s a deal breaker :)
