I’ve been an Amazon fan for quite some time now, it was the first place I’ve ordered something online, and recently, the last place I’ve order something online.
Today I received an email today from Amazon about their new service called “WebStore.” Which is basically a build-it-yourself eCommerce Storefront, I’d imagine that it’s very similar to Yahoo! Merchant Solutions.
I’ve checked out many of the “examples”:http://www.amazon.com/Instant-Website-Program-Overview/b?ie=UTF8&node=16269941, and well, it’s definitely safe to say that I still have a job designing eCommerce websites.
Now, don’t get me wrong! There are definitely a some conversion-friendly features in the Amazon WebStore, and it’s probably *not* a bad solution for someone on their first generation eCommerce site. The one thing I really like is that customers can use their existing Amazon.com accounts, and everything is posted through Amazon’s servers, that’s one heck of a security assurance.
But when you’re ready to make the next step, and move on to your 2nd or 3rd generation site, be sure to “give us a call”:http://www.groovecommerce.com/contact-us/ 🙂
