The Vendio Platform is a complete eCommerce solution that includes a robust, feature-rich online store as well as item, order and customer management – all for free. It doesn’t matter whether a merchant sells 10 or 10,000 items in their Vendio store – they pay no web hosting fees, imaging hosting fees, listing fees or success fees. There is no catch. No gimmicks.
Vzaar is an easy to use, easy to utilize and effective video embed marketing tool. A tool that allows the merchant the ability to keep his/her viewer interested in in his or her product and not go wandering off into the video surfing darkness.
Vzaar is cost effective, easy to setup and allows eBay sellers to embed videos in hundreds of live eBay listings with a click of a button.
Vzaar is worth a try – take a look at the videos in the sidebar here on the Trading Assistant Journal to see how people use Vzaar to sell Guitars or to see how easy it is to setup. What have you got to lose when the initial cost is zero and the upside is you could start engaging your customers like never before!
Customer Service is the Difference
The winners of 2008 include companies like Amazon.com, Zappos.com and Apple. These outstanding companies have one thing in common, the perception (at least) that they provide outstanding customer service to their customers.
The idea is simple, No BS eCommerce, eBay and eBusiness. We won’t be selling and DVD sets and we won’t be pulling any punches when it comes to sharing our opinions about anything to do with the industry. We know that as co-hosts we will not always agree on every subject but this is also what we think will make us unique.
If you have been considering building a website to promote your own Bonanzle or Etsy, or Online Auction or even eBay sales… Just get out there and do it! The biggest step is the first one, and we all know after that, its all just a matter of following through. Cliff Aliperti, is following through!
I have not seen how it works, but apparently ITS’s VINterchange system has the capability of automatically populating eBay listings with all of the OEM parts information needed to sell these parts to the public in a fast and efficient manner. This could revolutionize the used auto parts industry on eBay motors.
One of the biggest pain points for buyers on eBay is the checkout process. With all of the third party solutions and off eBay checkout links there is no standardization of the payment process. Payflow is a secure, reliable payment gateway now integrated into the eBay checkout.
Today Sue Bailey posted an article on Tamebay which in my mind presents the view of global sellers on eBay in a very succinct and reasonable way. Sue touches on almost every aspect of the frustration and the disappointment eBay sellers are feeling. Her points are well intended and in my view quite accurate.

I asked Cliff to explain Amazon FBA to our readers here at the Trading Assistant Journal because we are always aware of the desire to look outside of eBay and learn about eBay competition. Naturally Amazon is one of the first places eBay sellers think about when considering a switch.
Online Auction.com CEO Chris Fain, during a live Internet Radio show presented by ECMRN (e-commerce Marketing Radio Network) , detailed a plan to charge buyers $8.00 a month subscription for access to buy from the auction venue in the future.
The following statement “a small percentage of PayPal customers are effected” by this impending IRS & Online sales tax issue,says little for PayPal or eBay as a route to business success . I mean… if the use of PayPal as a business solution to process payments from online sales, is a healthy concern, wouldnt more than a “small percentage” of PayPal users be effected by this IRS fact finding mission?
According to our recent Trading Assistant Journal/Polldaddy.com Poll, …with over 10% of the IMA membership responding, we can predict that the IMA has lost almost 50% of its membership to PeSA. With over 89% of the membership (who responded to our poll) leaving altogether… And then there were 2… Only 2 of the respondents stated they […]

Larry Phillips has volunteered to fill in for IMA President Steve Grossberg on the eBay and Beyond, Basics to Business Internet Talk Radio Program next Saturday…
Mr. Steve Grossberg, Internet Merchants Association President and Treasurer, has just informed the eBay and Beyond radio program of his decision to back out of this live radio talk show interview.
Dave White, the host of eBay and Beyond, Basics to Business Live Internet Radio Talk Show has offered an opportunity to the IMA Board of Directors and/or President to share their side of this growing controversy in live interviews on his nationally recognized talk radio show and podcast
I wish I could do more to help you cope with the issues that you are currently dealing with. But as you know, I was one of the six or more people who were summarily dismissed from the organization Monday morning for expressing my outrage at the actions of the three remaining members of the Board of Directors (BOD).
The president of an eCommerce Trade Group, the Internet Merchants Association, has stated he will “go after” any bloggers or websites covering IMA business. The IMA is a non-profit organization which recently experienced mass resignations from a majority of the board due to ethics concerns.
I have received letter upon letter, obviously written by very upset and almost physically shaken individuals who in most cases simply wanted to belong to a fair and honest group of like minded people.
While reportedly awaiting an apology from the BOD at the Internet Marketing Association to which she belonged, Debbie Levitt posted on her blog today that she has been summarily expelled from the IMA.
The fighting and arguing at IMA, as it appears from the outside, boils down to nothing more than a teenage prepubescent firestorm over he-said she-said and a power struggle to gain control.
The obvious options as eBay competition include Amazon, Yahoo Stores, and stand alone eCommerce websites, we will research each of these options and more.
I think eBay people are all looking for other alternatives to only selling on eBay. If you are one of those people, this information will interest you!
eBay’s DevCon conference gets less of the hoopla and press when compared to eBay Live. I suppose this is because developers are fairly introverted people who would rather have the attention lavished on thier software creations.
iBusinessLogic created this website with a content management system called WordPress. There are some advanced features in this design but the ease usability for both the website owner and viewer has been maximized.
Stuart does not rely on eBay any longer, he has found his way out of the darkness of eBay suspension and into the light of eCommerce sales. Stuart sees a bright future ahead and he says he will never rely on eBay again completely as he had before.
