SaleHoo Stores Are OPEN for Beta Testing!

SaleHoo Stores Are OPEN for Beta Testing!

For a long time, we at SaleHoo have preached about the benefits of selling on your own website, as opposed to selling on a marketplace.

In particular, we love that when you sell on your own website, you don’t have to pay fees, so all your profits are yours to keep!

We also love that when you sell on your own site, you DON’T have to compete with hundreds or thousands of other sellers who sell the same items as you. Instead, you can pull traffic from search engines including Google, Yahoo! and AOL to pull buyers to your site and buy from you (and only you!).

So now, SaleHoo is putting our money where our mouth is: We have created SaleHoo Stores, an e-Commerce web store that allows you to quickly and easily setup your own online store and start selling your items right away (without the marketplace fees and heavy competition!).

What You’ll Get With Your SaleHoo Store:

  • A search-engine optimized website. Every page is optimized so that it is easy for buyers to find your website when they search in Google and other search engines.
  • No monthly fees! Not only will you be free of monthly fees, but we will also shout you your first year’s hosting free.
  • Easily import your eBay items. If you are an eBay Turbo Lister user, it will take you no time to import all your eBay listings instantly into your new store. This means you can instantly expand your audience, with no extra time taken to list your items on another platform.
  • Unlimited storage space. List as many products as you like – with no website crashing, and no extra fees!
  • Superior support. When you sign up to SaleHoo Stores, you can expect that you will have the same level of superior support that you have as a SaleHoo member. We have trained technical staff waiting on hand right now who are ready to answer your questions. Send us an email and we will reply within 24 hours or receiving it!

What SaleHoo Stores Look Like

As I mentioned, you can add your own logo and adjust the theme of your store, but just to give you an idea of what your SaleHoo Store will look like here are some sneak-peak screenshots from some already-established SaleHoo Stores:

Here is the home page of a SaleHoo Store made for Squashways, who sell Squash Racquets. 

As you can see, this store has a very clean and simple feel, making the products the most eye-catching feature for all site visitors.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the features of this particular store:

You might be wondering how easy it is to manage your website. Well, rest-assured knowing that it is very straight-forward!

You just login to your admin area at http://www.YourSiteName.com/admin

Then you will arrive at your admin area which will look something like this:

As you can see, all your products are simply laid out to make it easy for your to modify your product listings. You can also sort your products by brand and category to help save you time.

Adding new product listings is super easy too – we’ve tested it and it’s even faster than listing on eBay!

Help Videos to Get You Started

We’ve done a lot of hard work to make setting up and managing your SaleHoo Store really easy, including making a series of videos to show you around your Store and show you how easy it is to get setup.

Let’s take a look inside the SaleHoo Store Member’s Area (which you will get exclusive access to when you sign up) and the videos that are available for you to view:

Each of these videos are created by Mike at SaleHoo who does a great job of showing you step-by-step instructions on how to use your store, so you never have to worry about getting stuck, or not knowing what to do once you sign up for your SaleHoo Store.

Thank you Irene, I have pointed the domain to your server, is there a way verify that from SaleHoo? Reply

Hi lessen10: Yes, I have seen that the website is now up and fine. :) I have also sent you another email. Kindly send me any further questions at http://www.salehoo.com/support :) Reply

Can you change the theme after setting up the store? Do I have to purchase a domain name from another place, i.e godaddy.com? Reply

Can you purchase multiple stores? Reply
Site Admin
Hi allentoy: It's going to be one SaleHoo Store per email address/account. Once bought, if you try to purchase another one you will get a prompt that says 'this email address is already in use', and the checkout/payment will not proceed. Yes, you can change the theme or template at any point of your store set-up and there are several templates to choose from. Unlike other sites that offer you a subdomain only, you always have the option of creating your very own domain and URL for your SaleHoo Stores site. You can then enjoy 12 free months of hosting, and if you decide to continue, you’ll enjoy a bargain hosting rate. You get everything all in one place all for a one-time payment. :) Reply
Once the first year is up, can I move the site hosting to another host? Reply

Hello, one final question. Is the introductory rate still available?? and when is time up for it, if it is? Reply
Site Admin
@Bazza: At this stage, Salehoo Stores users cannot migrate or transfer their store to other hosting providers. You may still use the domain though, with any other web hosts. :) Reply
Site Admin
@allentoy: Yes, the introductory rate of US$97 for the SaleHoo Stores is still on offer, and there's no definite date until when, but surely not much longer. :) Reply
Hi The $60.00 charge for the SSL includes a dedicated IP so the SSL is only for your dedicated IP? Otherwise, you would be using a shared SSL at no cost? Are these assumptions correct or is the $60.00 for a shared SSL? Reply
Site Admin
Hi John, The $60 is for the dedicated SSL. Salehoo does not offer a shared SSL at the moment. Reply

Hi, Rather than having a cookie cutter website and everyone using the same template, do you have a range of templates we can choose from? Clifford Reply
Site Admin
Hi Clifford, Yes, there are several templates to choose from - Basic in blue, green, white or yellow and Elegant in Simplicity, Ghost or Corporate design. You can also change the templates at any point. :) Reply

What is the reason that no ccard is provided on your Salehoo store site, is there going to be any in the future, don't like dealing in cheques, they can be cancelled too easy. Reply
Site Admin
Hi chainarong, PayPal is among the payment methods you can enable at your SaleHoo Store. PayPal is one of the largest and most reputable payment gateways. It is a third party merchant, that can accept credit card payments on your behalf. :) Reply

Could you kindly give a couple of addresses of Salehoo store sites that are currently up and running. I would like to have a look at them prior to proceeding with any further thoughts about this. Thanks Reply

Hi yaamba, I have sent them to you through private message. Please check your inbox. All the best! :) Reply
Do you get access to the suppliers also or do you still have to pay the separate fee for that service? Reply

Hi there. I just found this promo! Question. I bought my domain name but have not set it up yet. I can use my domain name with a store through you all? I wanted a .com and nothing else behind it (like some hosting programs). Can I use that then? Also can you send me some existing websites? Thanks! Christian Reply
Site Admin
Hi Christian, Sorry, but the beta period was completed. Watch out for the launch of the SaleHoo Stores this September, 2011! :) http://www.salehoo.com/stores Yes, you can use your own domain name (such as www.sportsequipmentstore.com) - you don't have to use an unsightly and unprofessional "www.salehoostores.sportsequipmentstore.com". :) With SaleHoo Stores, your Store is all your own! And for your request to see some of the existing websites, I have sent you a private message. And welcome to SaleHoo! :) Reply

I have a question, where do I go, or how to I have my categories listed on my website. I know how to have categories listed in my product section in the admin. I'm trying to find out how to list them on my website. Such as category Home & Garden, sub-category, gardening tools. Can someone help me on this. Reply
Site Admin
Hi lonestardiscounts, Once you have your main categories listed, add the subcategory in the same way - under Product, Category, Add New, but before saving, tick check the Parent Category it will be under (options that will show will be the categories you have earlier set). At your store's front end, the main categories will be showing in the left part of the page. Clicking on each category (ex. Home and Garden) will open to a page that shows the subcategories under it (ex. after clicking on Home and Garden, the next page will show tab/boxes for Gardening Tools, Furniture, Home Decor etc.) Send me a message at http://www.salehoo.com/support, and I'll do my best to help. :) Cheers!

Hey there! Is the introductory rate of US$97 for the SaleHoo Store still on? Do i still need to pay the SSL fee of $60 other than the introductory rate? And how can I join the Salehoo Store as it will officially launch in September? Reply

Hi.I am considering buying a premium plan SaleHoo shop. Your special offer is 47 dollars per month (if I buy it before midnight). I wonder if this amount (47 dollars) every month automatically are drawn from my account? What date each month is this happening? Can I at any time terminate my shop and also end the monthly fee (47 dollars) that is withdrawn from my account? Reply
Site Admin
@Trude: Yes it will be automatically drawn monthly during the anniversary date of your purchase. Yes, the monthly charge is covered by SaleHoo Store's 60 days money back guarantee, For more info please send us your questions at http://www.salehoo.com/support :) Reply

Domain names are important to e commerce success. Why are domain names not included with Salehoo Stores? Reply
Site Admin
@beachdisney: The main reason is that domain names are not our core business and there are other companies that specialize in selling domains. Besides, many people already have domain names that they want to use rather than us giving them one. :) Reply

Hi everybody, I have purchased premium store and now under processing of string it up. I am a little bit confused about the terms and condition on information section of the store. I know the terms and condition comes with the purchase of store are very relevant and mandatory. However I am not sure where I mention my own terms and condition about shipping, products, return or refund , payment, warranty etc. In addition to the terms of use comes with the store. Can I add my own terms and condition there to cover and regulate worldwide transaction. Regards, Karki Reply
Site Admin
Hi Mimosa, welcome to SaleHoo! :) You can set your own Terms and Conditions, and can even create pages about your policy on shipping, return, warranty policy etc through your store's Admin page. Send us an email at http://www.salehoo.com/support and we'll help you along. :) Reply

Hi. I think you should remove "powered by salehoo stores" from your theme. Reply
Full Member
is correct. It doesn't look very authentic. It might hurt site's reputation. Reply
Site Admin
Hello Raja,

Sorry we don’t have any plans to remove this at the moment. Having the SaleHoo logo just should hurt your store's reputation after all we are hosting your store :) Reply
