As I was working on a cloud-based website builder, I came across an article that talked about the high churn rate of websites built on Shopify. I thought that was a problem that I could tackle with my solution. So, I refocused on how to make an e-commerce website builder that does not rely on monthly fees for revenue.
Free Store Website (freestorewebsite.com) is the solution I came up with. Rather than paying monthly fees, Free Store Website charges a low one time setup fee and then a small 2% fee when a sale occurs (in additional to credit card processing fees).
Because you only pay when you make money, Free Store Website takes the stress out of launching a new e-commerce website and will hopefully allow new stores to stay in business longer.
