Free ecommerce websites are not unheard of. Free offers of products and services are everywhere, not just in ecommerce. At first thought, what comes to mind is that there is a catch somewhere in the process. In the online world FREE usually means that there is a component of the product or service that is essential to the full functionality of your website or something else that is highly undesirable.
For example, advertising. We all know how annoying it is to be greeted with a page that takes it’s time loading into the web browser because of all the flash ads and pop-up windows. After closing all of them, you don’t even feel like looking at the web page. Well, with an ad filled page you’re likely to loose a potential client and that is clearly counterproductive. A free ecommerce website may also raise questions about reliability, support and how current the underlying technology is. Still, there may just be something new under the sun.
Free is possible. Jatech, the operator of jsiwebtools.com and cheapwebhostingcanada.ca, two successful websites that deal with ecommerce software and hosting, has began offering a truly free ecommerce website that is ad free, fully operational and supported with live chat on their website. They offer you a website that is set up in minutes, and after you load your products on the site, you become an online retailer under the URL of your own choice. You will actually own the website and its code for free. All you have to do is just choose who you are going to use for shipping and credit card payments.
That’s not all. At this point, you may wonder whether the fine print may state that this offer only comes with a hosting package at cheapwebhosting.ca. For Jatech, that would be too “run of the mill”. The offer is with NO STRINGS ATTACHED! You may host your website anywhere you want. You may take it to another hosting company or may load it on your own computer and have it run 24 hours a day. It’s completely up to you, as long as standard hosting requirements are met; Linux, Apache, PHP, etc.
The software operating your website will have the basic features of Jatech’s very own, recently updated shopping cart software, called JSI-Cart. A quick, simple and secure shopping cart software made by a company that already has over 900 ecommerce websites under it’s belt. Extra features can be added at a very reasonable cost.
You can even test drive a website with their free JSI-Cart demo. Here you can choose from a list of domains and in minutes you’ll be able have an actual website running with admin access. You can see for yourself how easy it is to manage the content and your products with JSI-Cart.
Now that is a truly free ecommerce sofware! There is something new under the sun.
