To present additional insight in support of “Auctions: To Sell or Not to Sell” I registered with Webstore.com. Webstore.com advertises no buying, selling, or sign up fees. During the registration process, I learned that it is in fact true there are no fees. How can this site operate without member fees?
According to the “getting started” FAQs, “WebStore is supported by the advertisers who display banners on the site, not by charging fees to our members.
Thanks to our advertisers, WebStore members enjoy a professional, feature filled, FREE community in which to buy and sell goods and services without all the common fees of most auction sites.”
Additionally, Webstore.com offers free web stores with No limits on the number of items. Also provided are preinstalled themes/templates that allow for customizable store pages. Sellers also have the alternative to Sell Globally, Nationally, and locally.
Overall, I think webstore.com would be a relatively smart choice for starting an online auction business especially for one with little or no funding options.
