I create craft-based items - dolls, gift boxes, handbags etc. I wish to sell these online from my own site and also sell in person at markets etc.
I currently have a second, relatively new, SBI site for this and originally intended directing purchasers to Etsy to buy (which is what I currently do.) But I want to leave Etsy as I find them too restrictive.
Most shopping cart plans (Selz, Shopify) charge as much as the SBI monthly fee is. I can't afford that at present. These shopping cart sites also offer pages - Contact, About, Blog, etc.
So, my question is, why do I need SB? Does adding a shopping cart to an SBI site benefit me in any way?
I could add a Shopify Lite at $9 per month or Selz basic at $17.50 but would I be better off just setting up my site on Shopify or Selz. I have no intention of writing masses of content pages other than writing about items I'm selling. I may blog. I have no intention of creating a craft site where I describe to others how to do it.
Please, can anyone shed light onto this?
