But in this case study I would like to discuss a few more e-commerce elements that any reputable online store should offer its potential customers in addition to a nice selection of reasonably priced products and good service.
I mean site credibility and transaction security.
Credibility is achieved with professional design, top notch code and signs of the third parties that monitor the site security (sample – ScanAlert, etc).
Transaction security is probably of even greater importance (do you check if SSL certificate is valid with every online store you shop?) as any online shopper would like to be sure his payment information is secure and private.
I have tried to visit the below website and my virus system WARNED me of the virus threat.
So, if the store is not secure even for visiting what about shopping security? And what potential of making money this sort of project have?
Car GPS, Car Audio and Video Dropship Site
Work from home, lots of potential
• URL: www.nav4cars.com – be careful to check the site as it was infected with virus when I have tried to evaluate that
• Established: Fri Nov 30 2007
• Monthly Revenue (USD): 100
• Uniques/Month: 200
• BIN: $ 3000
This is an e-commerce site that has is products dropshipped straight from the manufacturer to the customers. It has a shopping cart loaded with 34 products complete with detailed pictures and Product descriptions. It has a user friendly control panel from which you can control all aspects of the products. I have paid for SEO but still waiting for results to come in. I have notified the supplier that I am selling and they are ready to work with the new owner. I will be available over email and telephone for support.
This is a dropshipping e-commerce store. I only sell a few units per month but this is only the result from a limited Pay per click campaign if advertised more it will have a lot more revenue.
My traffic comes from PPC campaigns and youtube although I took my youtube advert down due to selling. Still waiting for SEO results as i herd it takes a few months. A lot more is possible if it was more heavily marketed.
