Q: How can I start selling online for FREE? A: The E-Commerce Associates (ECA) Programme is a new programme that allows commercial sellers to market their products and services without hosting or set up fees. So you may have an existing business or be starting a new business and wish to sell online to either the local, international, or global marketplaces. The Programme is risk free as no payment is required for setting up, and all payment processing is done for you. It really is simplicity to start selling online today.
Q: How does it work? A: In short, you’ll list your products and/or services and they will become viewable by shoppers. Shoppers may purchase your products and/or services by placing it in the shopping cart and checking out. They take care of all payment processing on your behalf and then forward you the order for fulfilment.
Q: How much does it cost to participate in this programme? A: There is no cost to get started. Once accepted, you can list as many products and/or services as you’d like at no cost. The programme simply retains a nominal percentage (minimum 15% of your retail price) whenever you make a sale. That’s it! No Sale, No Fee!
Q: How long ago was the programme launched? A: It was launched in January 2009. The parent company, Carson Services, Inc., is in its 25th year and is a long-time member of the Better Business Bureau serving Southeast Nebraska.
Q: How can I become an ECA? A: Approvals typically take just 1-2 business days. Once approved, you can immediately begin listing your products and services.
Q: When/how do I get paid when a sale occurs? A: You can choose to be paid weekly via check or daily via electronic transfer of funds.
Q: How do I list PRODUCTS Or Services? A: You can enter the product information for your products one at a time via a special ECA Webpage. Or, if you have many products to list, you can quickly and easily upload all of your information in a simple text file. Q: How do I list SERVICES ? A: They provide you with a special Website where you can enter complete information on your service(s) and in a format that will allow online ordering.
Q: How are prices determined? A: You set all prices. You can also adjust your prices whenever you need to.
Q: How are shipping costs determined on product sales? A: If your company resides in the United States, the software can automatically determine the shipping cost (which will be paid to you) for each of your products, based on weight and destination. If your company resides in another country, you will submit your required shipping fees when you submit your product’s retail pricing information.
Q: For product orders placed by local customers, can the customer choose to pick up the order at my store? A: Yes, you can choose this option for any or all of your products and eliminate shipping costs for your local customers.
Q: Who is responsible for product returns and refunds? A: You will be responsible for processing and notifying us of all returned products. The programme will then take care of all refunds to customers.
Q: Does this offer fraud protection? A: Yes, they carefully monitor all orders for fraud.
Q: How do I manage orders? A: Provided to you at our ECA Centre is an Order Manager that allows you to view all open and completed orders. You can easily process open orders by printing out order summaries. Or you can download a tab-delimited file that provides a summary of all of your open orders for quick and easy fulfilment.
Q: What if I need to make changes or remove a product or service? A: Provided to you at our ECA Centre is a Listings Manager that allows you to quickly and easily choose and edit any of your products or services as needed. The Listings Manager also allows you to designate products and services as inactive or active, which is instantly reflected at your store.
Q: What is the Website? A: When you apply to become an ECA, they will ask you to choose a domain name. This URL becomes yours to use as you like in your own promotions and is a special Website that features JUST your products, plus special features that allow you to connect with customers more deeply and grow your customer base in exciting new ways! As with their standard program, for any orders, they will take care of all payment processing for you and forward orders on to you for fulfilment. If you currently don’t have a Website for your products or services, you’ll now have one, ready for you to use as soon as you’ve uploaded your product and service information.
