Selling stuff online at the moment is a pain in the backside - you have to deal with building your online shop, getting the products, packaging them, shipping them, dealing with payment options, technical support... But does it really have to be?
Well, thanks to a service that was recently launched in the US, all these problems are now a thing of the past. Zlio isn't just the world's most innovative e-commerce service ever launched - it's also pure genius!
It allows you to create your own internet store, even if you have nothing to sell! All you need to do is to go to their website, create a store (takes less than three minutes) and fill it with products from their directory (which gives you a choice of over three million products, from most of the internet's top merchants). You don't need to know anything about programming or making websites unless you want to – all of that is dealt with by them (and they make your shop look really sharp as well).
Once your shop's up and running, all you need to do is advertise it. Zlio even provides all kinds of tools to help you do that. When people log on and buy anything from it, you get a commission from the supplier. But best of all, you don't even need to worry about handling the product yourself – it's shipped straight from the merchant to your customer. All you ever need to handle is the cash!
So next time someone asks you where you got that incredible book/watch/shoe/couch/computer/remote controlled helicopter/etc… make sure you're be able to send them to your ZlioShop and to get your cut on the way!
