This article comes from theshoppad.com discusses the differences between Shopify and Magento.  Shopify is a more plug and play solution in my opinion, while the capability of Magento is more robust, but it will take a longer time to get a Magento site up and running.

This artice is great on SEO, which my last blog was about, check it out from practical e-commerce:

Look at the fees below, they detail the costs associated with FBA or Fulfill by Amazon.

Amazon can tell you what to sell and how to sell it.  If you have a large item that may not sell frequently, you will be charged a monthly fee for storage.

Review these costs from the Amazon website, and I will provide a breakdown at the bottom of these images.

If this item was 8 lbs.  The fees for Amazon would be $9.10

You can get Incentives from UPS or USPS to ship this for much less.

 

Final point:

If you depend on Amazon for your sales, they know what sells.  If you remember what Wal-mart did to its suppliers.  If you have ever heard of Great Value, then you are aware of what I am talking about.

When Amazon brings out their own brand, they will know what to make because you will have told them.
