    Why PopShops
    Hi I am New. I have a few questions. I hope you can help me out.
    (note, I did read 15 pages before I posted)

    1. What are the main differences between PS and doing it yourself?

    2. Does the term "unlimited shops" refer to storefronts or products in your store?

    3. Can you have multiple stores with one account?

    4. If you wanted to have a price comparison feature which package is best?

    5. Is Amazon now a part of PS merchant lists?

    6. How does one know which PS package to choose?

    7. Would anyone like to show off their Shop. To demonstrate the possibilities of PS. You may PM me if you think it is too personal to post.

    Thank you

    Thumbs up
    as far as I know:

    1. without it I would have to learn php and download every merchant's datafeed constantly
    2. I believe they are referring to storefronts
    3. yes
    4. don't know
    5. Amazon has books there for now. you can find the list of participating merchants right on the site.
    6. start low and work up

    Sorry, but since you are new here you don't have PM privileges.

    Herb took care of all the rest and I will add my opinion to #1

    If you know nothing about datafeeds you can use the simple drag and drop feature to build professional looking websites just by adding one line of code. How great is that!

    I agree ... I always wanted to incorporate data feeds and have real live products on my sites but learning to use each merchant's feed across different affiliate networks and figuring out how to keep them current was overwhelming.

    Popshops is an awesome tool that's simple to use and simple to customize.

    You can send it but they cannot read until they reach that level.

    @#7: PS has a few demo shops you can view. Visit the site and read around, a lot of your questions can be answered there. Since they offer a free trial there's nothing lost to try it out.

    thank you for your time. I look forward to trying it out. If anyone can chime in to maybe verify that you can have more than one store with one account and if unlimited shops means stores or products. Does anyone know which package offers comparisons?


    thx

    Unlimited shops means stores. You can have more than one store per account. Comparisons is something you need to set up yourself on your site. The tools in PS can be used for displaying the products you are comparing, but there's nothing to do the comparison for you.

    PopShops lists all the features in every plan before you sign up so you can compare the features at PS.
