I just want to let everyone at VANA reading this topic know I love Kathie.

 

She understood what I wrote, when I almost didn't myself.

 

Kathie - you rock. Seriously.

 

Aw shucks :blush:

Kathy,

 

Have you considered turning on the send email notification and writing

Microsoft Outlook Rules to sort when someone joins your client's

autoresponder?

 

You can get email notification when someone signs up.

And it shows you which list they opted in to.

 

Or, you could use the 'alternate destination' field in the

autoresponder at day 0 and have a special message

go to YOU when someone opts in.

 

And then you could sort that with Microsoft Outlook rules

and see stats that way.

 

Cheers,

Christina

Hi Christina, I didn't know you were on this list! I get your newsletters. And yes, thanks - my life would be a mess if I didn't use Outlook Rules - when my computer crashed a couple of weeks ago I discovered my rules weren't backed up and I had to recreate them :angry: but I've now worked out how to export them as a file and they are backed up - I don't want to have to recreate them all again! Thanks for the info.

I am trying to wrap my thoughts around all of this shopping cart info and it can be very complex :) Presenting only one item is going to be sold with the future addition of a few more items...

 

A client is going to be hosting with GoDaddy and already has a PayPal account, so:

 

1) We need to sign-up with 1shoppingcart.com

 

2) Link it to the PayPal account

 

3) Sign-up for a merchant account with goDaddy???? OR NO??

 

Thanks for further clarification!!

Well Kim, I think it really depends on a number of things - is the product list going to grow or remain one product? Is it a digital product that can be downloaded on purchase or one that you have to physically post out? Do you intend to follow up with auto responders after the sale to promote more business and future sales?

 

If it's a one only product to be posted out, then just use a PayPal link. If it's a digital product to be downloaded then you can use a combination of PayPal with Payloadz to give an automatic download link that has a time setting to it - it becomes unavailable after about 48 hours.

 

I haven't used the merchant account with GoDaddy so can't comment but if you are going to add more products further down the track and want to use auto responders and broadcast emails as the client list grows, then using a service like 1shoppingcart.com is the way to go. The database can grow as people sign up for newsletters, purchase products and respond to other things. You can use the Payment Gateway to process the payments or just connect with PayPal for the payments.

 

I hope this helps you start to get an idea of what you can do. If you go down the 1shoppingcart.com road I do use it a lot and we have the Shoppingcart Queen in our midst as well - who better to ask for advice?

You might also want to look into Mal's ecommerce. It's compatible with Paypal, and is free.

Thanks for your replies... The client is only going to offer one product right now...a book....and it will not be digital. Other books will follow but it may be 6-12 month's down the road... I will look at Mel's...OR just offer them the PayPal link...
