Say Good-bye to Ecommerce Setup Costs!
If you have to start your own online shop – you not only need to get the merchant banking account but also a hosting platform. All that costs thousands of dollars if you aren’t a techie. Even when you are a techie, it takes a lot of effort to get it started. Ezebee makes it easy by cutting out the use of currency. This interesting concept started by Ossian Vogal and Frank de Vries was to eliminate the use of credit cards or cash and instead use EZB swap points (where one EZB point = One US Dollar). The way they explain the concept is pretty simple and very powerful.
Every time a product is ordered online or paid for with a credit card, a bank (or payment provider) makes money. Often there are hidden fees or added charges within the purchase, and sometimes both! Billions of dollars are spent every day for nothing more than a computer changing a number.
By using EZB points, you create an online commerce platform that has its own world. Here entrepreneurs can sell anywhere online.
Local City Shops
The best thing about ezebee is that by integrating the shops with community, it has made the shops have a local connection as well. So if you are from say, New Delhi, then you can simply connect with one of the Delhi showrooms and get stuff without the shipping costs. For sellers as well, this is like having an online showroom – sans the high real estate cost – and selling to local customers as well. As a seller, it would be very useful to connect with people from your city. So, for a Delhi entrepreneur, it would make a lot of sense to connect and promote the shop to the Delhi-ites.
Unlimited Global Options
With ezebee, you can create your site for any currency, any language and any country. That is the power of creating something for local and global audience in one go – without the headache of converting currencies.
