    Need Website Designed for Online Store

    Smartypotty Adventurer
      I am in need of a website designed for a new online store that I'm starting. Can anyone offer their services for free?

          I am just curious... are you serious? Most people take their time very seriously. Are you offering the designer a % of future profits or anything? I mean.. if you are a non-profit or something.. I can see asking for pro bono services. Otherwise.. I really do wonder if you are joking around? Depending on how many products you offer... you are probably looking at about $1k minimum (I say that because I looked at your profile and noticed you are only marketing one product). I freelance for one company that does design/seo. You can put up a website, but if the site is not optimized... you might as well not waste your money. I just wanted you to be aware of that so you don't get "taken" or so you don't think you can just throw up a site and expect business to come to you. ;)

            There are several high quality, low cost turnkey e-commerce solutions out there. You do not have to have it designed from scratch (nor would I recommend it). Take a look at http://www.shop-script.com. That is one of the better, more afordable ones in my opinion. They can install it for you for a nominal fee. Afterwards, all you would have to do is customize it with your logo and desired appearance, presuming you have some basic web design experience. Or you can simply select a template and start loading your product pictures, descriptions, etc. They also integrate easily with all of the major merchant services. There are also some free shopping carts out there, such as OSCommerce, for instance.

              I might be able to help, but I do not offer a complete ecommerce site for free.

              If you just need 5-8 html pages, with a few items to sale, I am your guy.

                              I designed my own website using Web.com they have a new tool that lets you design an online store as well. Their hosting fees are around $20/month. It comes with built in shopping carts, and you can link sales to your Paypal and/or Ebay account. It is easy and with a little pratice and patience, you can do it yourself. Just study other websites and know what you want to do with yours. After you make money, then you can invest in paying a pro to redesign your website. My business pays for its own website now. If you have a good product(s) to sell and good info to go along with it, your customers will come.
