How to set up an online store?

    I want to make a online ebook store! I wasn't sure if it would be easier just putting them on to amazon and linking it to the site?
    Is there any plugins? tools? Or blog systems to get a shop on your site? Or on a blog?

    I don't see the point in linking your product from amazon to your site. People would most likely just buy the product from amazon.

    Its called affiliate marketing:) Cookies can be tracked up to 90 days, and within that time if someone buys anything from amazon you will get commisions. There is plenty of successful amazon affiliate sites that make $1000s p/month.

    OP, you can install wordpress and check out these plugins

    Hope this helped mate

    I've also seen people set up online stores on eBay. They choose an eBay username that is very similiar to the name of their site or blog (minus the .com) ;)

    Yeah, you can even do this and makes your ebay shop look like a competitor to your website shop - put slightly lower prices on ebay perhaps etc.. this way you have 2 shops fronts online.. good cop, bad cop :)

    I have set up a couple of sites targeting niches on Amazon. Setting up a site is easy, even easier if you use the plugins mentioned above. But the site makes no money without traffic/visitors.

    Some people recommend buying on Amazon and selling on E-bay. Didn't work for me, I got banned on e-bay. The thing is, you never know why they ban your account. Could be anything. So it is a slow learning process.

    You are probably better off making an interesting niche site and work it 'til you get traffic. Then advertise a few Amazon products on the site. If the visitor clicks your ad and ends up on Amazon, you will get the commission no matter what product visitor chooses to buy in the next 30 days.

    However, you only get 4-8% commission, it will take time for earnings to add up.

    Another good business plan is to "sell physical products on Amazon" (google it). Also google "Drop ship", and "Fullfillment by Amazon". You can earn up towards 40-50% profit in this way.

    Wow thank you!
    This really was a good help! I am hoping to build a good amount of traffic soon! And want to get my own books out there! But thank you for another good way of advertising! Do you think this way can earn more than the normal ads like adsense/clicksor?


    Thanks again

    I was thinking of more selling my own books! Just need a way to get money and have a system to send the books! The amazon affiliate is just a bonus and another way for me to earn money!:D
