I am shopping for a store (Recomendations)
September 22, 2011
I have jumped in, two-feet-first into this idea of making a living selling robots. It has been an incredible amount of work. I think the ducks are now in a row, I have kits on hand and instructions written etc. The website is even close to done.
Now, I use Google for just about everything I do --Docs, Picassa, Sites, Gmail and I assumed that the Google store widget would be the one I would be going with. I did my first test order last night and those thoughts were quickly squelched. Google stores simply suck. To order, one is required to have a Google account with a payment method tied to that account. Who was the brain-trust that came up with this one?
I am on to PayPal --where I should have started in the first place. However, paypal uses third party outfits if you need a embedable store widget and there are a lot of choices. Some look better than others I must say.
Of the folks here selling stuff --what are you using for a store widget? All ideas and advice will be appreciated.
