Electronic Commerce: the global village, or the people next door?

If you are an eBay trader, for example, and are wondering just how you are now paying 10% commission on sales and another 4~5% for Paypal, then you already understand what happens when an online monopoly/behemoth is allowed to grow big enough to call all the shots. So if you want to create a better alternative eBay, then USP is ready to provide it!

Web, or mobile - with the ever changing world market, online trading offers business solutions to reach world markets from any location. You don't need to be in a country to sell to customers living there, so with an ever growing online market, and the ability to reach your customers wherever they are.

That said, there are still real problems with reliable international payments and shipment that remain remarkably badly addressed by "traditional" banks and postal services. However, there is still vast and largely untapped scope to operate an online business that services customers within a 20 mile radius of where you live and work. 


USP's e-Commerce solutions provide:

The usual spiel...

  • Professional Layout design with customized theme
  • SEO - Search engine optimization, get to the top!
  • Custom Built Content Management System (CMS)

However, let's cut to the chase: Internet shopping is currently mostly only about the lowest price - and is it in stock?

If you want to operate outside walled malls like Amazon or eBay, then this suggests you have either not thought things through - or really thought them through, and are prepared to do all the many marketing and promotional things necessary to become a "destination site". You are not likely to be discovered by lucky accident. 

Shopping carts sites have clearly defined functions: Show them the goods, tell them the price, tell them if it's in stock, and above all make the checkout process as painless, slick and easy as possible.

Talk to USP for an honest attempt to match your expectations with the realistically achievable. We've seen it all.
