E-Commerce Tips and Tricks

Get a competitive discount rate on your merchant account and internet gateway

We are pleased to be able to offer you a highly competitive rate on your merchant account and Authorize.net gateway. Simply complete the application and send it in. The approval process is simple and the rates are great.

Submit your product feed for free to Froogle - a division of Google

A great alternative (or at least an addition) to pay per click advertising on Bizrate, Yahoo Shopping, and Shopping.com is Froogle. You can submit your products for free to Froogle. Your items will be listed at www.froogle.com, and will even appear at the top of searches for your product at Google.

An important note - you must resubmit your products every 30 days, or the products will be removed from Froogle.

Send Bulk E-mails to Your customers - Free and Pay Solutions Available

Group Mail is a great program if you have a small list to maintain, and don't mind manually adding new subscribers. They offer both a free and pay version of Group Mail. Read more about their product at http://www.infacta.com/asp/common/groupmail.asp.

If you need to manage a larger list, or want to have an online signup feature, use Constant Contact. It is easy to use, and they offer a ton of free newsletter templates to use!

Submit a Site Map to Google, with an easy to use tool

Google now allows webmasters to submit an XML file with all pages on their site. An easy to use tool is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/goog-sitemapgen. It is easy to use, and although Google does not guarantee to crawl your site, submitting a site map is a good idea!

Have an eBay store? List it in a free directory of eBay stores

Know what visitors visited your site, where they came from, how long they stayed...and MORE!
