Well,to start off,my name is Eddie,new member. I join Salehoo by curiosity and as they say curiosity killed the cat (hopefully this is not my case,lol). The purpose is to find suplier and be able to combine the product with an ecommerce store. my vision is selling women clothing,perfumes, etc. Now, my question for my quest is the folowing;
Are there any ecommerce store that I can set up online that you can referred me to or perhaphs recomend?. I have search few online and still looking for more Input. Ebay right now is not in my top choices for I want to create my own style and website.

Welcome to Salehoo. A couple that come to mind are ecrater and bonzale. They are not as large as ebay and don't have the traffic as ebay. But the numbers are increasing and they can be a good start. There are many ex ebayers using these sights and they get good reviews. Also they are both free sites. Good Luck in your venture.

Hi eddie, and welcome to SaleHoo

DM has given you two good options there if you are wanting a free listing platform, but while traffic is growing on those sites don't expect to be flooded with sales at this point in time.

It sounds to me like you are looking for a lot of flexibility in your platform, and that's always a good thing, but it's something you usually only get by developing your own site.

My own personal opinion is that every serious online seller needs to develop their own platform sooner or later, but the big downside to that is being able to generate traffic or no matter what you build, there won't be any sales.

I wouldn't be so quick to forget about eBay, yes they can be a pain in the rear end to deal with, but if you do end up developing your own site, they can also be a fantastic marketing source (if done within their policy guidelines of course) for you to build your own site around.
