Excellent reasons for creating your own SHOPNovember 8, 2010 4:47pm | Comments
One of the most frequently asked questions I’ve received is “What are the benefits of setting up a SHOP on MyNewMarketplace.com?”
Before I list several of the benefits, consider the traditional way of thinking about shops as “brick & mortar” locations such as a camera shop, a bakery, a dealership, a clothing store, etc. Today, more and more retailers have websites to introduce their products and offer you the ability to purchase items via an online shopping cart.
There are also an increasing number of businesses that have avoided the high cost of “brick & mortar,” and only sell products via e-commerce sites—-many in niche markets.
Then there are individuals who are “collectors” or have so much stuff that they’ve made a business out of selling items on eBay or Craigslist. Many of these people have expressed growing dissatisfaction with the increasing transaction costs or the lack of assurance that buyers or sellers are “who they say they are.”
With MyNewMarketplace.com, there are 10 distinct benefits of creating a Shop:
1.Centralize all your items in one online location
2.Link visitors directly to your website.
3.Items in your Shop also appear in the Classified section of our website by product category.

5.Link each product in your Shop to your own online shopping cart, if available.
6.NO transaction fees.
7.Social media tools to help you market your products.
