What Does It Take to Build a Store?

If you want to be your own Webmaster, it's easy!  Here's all you need:

  1. A computer -- Windows and the Macintosh are both supported.
  2. An Internet connection from an Internet Service Provider of your choosing (normally under $20.00 per month) and an Internet browser; perhaps Mozilla, Firefox, Opera or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  3. A good email program. The ones that come with Mozilla or Microsoft Internet Explorer will work fine.
  4. A digital camera or a scanner.
  5. Lastly, a willingness to learn and be associated with the best Antique and Collectible mall on the Internet.

Our MakeAShop system is an automated web store. You can upload as much merchandise to your web store as you want. This includes pictures and text. You can add and delete merchandise as often as you like. If you are selling only through auction, there is no minimum required stocking level.  To establish and maintain a fixed-price store, we will require you to keep a minimum of 25 items with pictures in your online shop. The items must have a total retail value of at least $1,200 US. 

We charge a 10% commission on those items that you do sell through MakeAShop OR 2% on those items sold at Auction. To view our commission fees for all types of sites click here.  

Just remember, there is no maximum amount of merchandise you can have in your shop and there is no per-item inventory charge. We know that the more merchandise you have online, the more you are going to sell. Collector Online wants you to get as much of your merchandise on our system as possible. Once your merchandise is loaded, we can help you sell your inventory at many different locations on the Web.

You don't need to know HTML to sell your merchandise on our system. The MakeAShop system makes it simple to run an online store. All you have to do is type your merchandise into a secure form that we have created for you. You don't need any special software for sending us your text, other than your Web browser. Uploading pictures is just as easy. Many of our dealers are using digital cameras now. They send us their pictures from their computer, through the Web, to our computers by simply locating the picture on their desktop and clicking 'upload'.  The MakeAShop system combines the text and the images into an attractive website that will make your customers want to return again and again.

As an example of our system at work, take a look at Big Ed's Royal China Dinnerware. Note that the list of categories on their main page is unique to their store. Our dealers can add or delete categories anytime they want to.  Test the features and see how well they work.  Notice that when you click on the "Add to order form" button, the item is automatically added into an invoice. We have a secure server so that your customers can send you credit card numbers over the Internet.

And, yes, online credit transaction processing is available for your Collector Online store.  And we can help you set up your own merchant account, too!

We provide you with daily reports on activity at your site. This includes a breakdown of total hits for your store. This also includes a list of the countries and service providers (AOL, Prodigy etc.) that accessed your site. With this information, you can keep track of how many people are visiting your site, where they are coming from, and what they are looking at.
