Hello All

I have my online store here at Monsta www.crosshairgolf.com and because of the variants involved it is absolutely necessary to have a shopping cart like monstir.

But, I am thinking of opening a different store and will not need all the bells and whistles so I was thinking of just getting some simple webspace and using paypal pro and saving some money.

What is your opinion of going this route.

Thank You

Al

Years ago that may have worked and we started and ran that way for many years.
But now that www is so large and customers are very web smart (most) I would think a cart to sell
is required.

Hi Al,

If you are looking for a shopping cart or a page that doesn't use all the bells and whistles of the Pro version of the MonsterCommerce Shopping cart, checkout our Standard version. It is only 49.95 a month so you will save some money on that. For information on the standard cart checkout -

So, how would a customer know the difference. If my security is there and navigation is easy. why pay $49.00 or $99.00 when I can pay $5.95. I know about tracking inventory and whatnot but with only 20 or 30 products, what is the benefit.

How does the customer purchase and get a total etc?

Again we did this many many years ago with Front Page and the customer had to cut /paste or type the part number on to a form (https secured) along with cc info which it turn was sent to us to process.
I think the basic cart at the lessor price would be well worth the $$ to gain credibility for sales.

The same way it happens at monstersmile.gif. Paypal Pro has a shopping cart feature. FREE.

Again, What is the benefit if you do not have hundreds of products with many variants.

I guess that would be the way to go and see what happens.
You can always upgrade if needed in the future.

Happy Sales

Al,

I think the benefit of prepackaged carts is just that. All the little things you need to run a successful on-line business are already packaged in one convenient .... package. Even if you set up an Evilbay store, it's still an online cart. Not that you said you were; just using that as an example. I can't remember the last time (if ever!) that I bought something from a website that didn't have cart abilities: SSL, built in check out, ability to preview products, things like that. Basic cart stuff.

I guess the biggest benefit I can see is that you don't have to do all the basic, behind the store, html pre-programming.

You got it, the benefit is you don't have to stay up till 3 in the morning programming, you can pick up the phone call a 1 800 number and get tech support, you can come to a User forum where other users have used the product and get ideas, support, encouragement, etc. . .

Free doesn't mean Free, it means "strings attached", "conditions". Complimentary means "no strings attached" - Paypal pro isn't free
