    Hey there guys... I have just registered on this forum and would just like to greet everyone, G'day! I run an e-commerce store web based solution called InstanteStore. You can check out my site at http://www.instantestore.com.

    We have a 30 Day Free Trial for you to trial the store and basically have everything set up before you signed on for the store and start selling away!

    And unlike other boxed solution, we allow customizations to the store and work with you to have your store selling more for you! Apart from the store solution, we also provide design and SEO services to complement our store solution services.

    Cheers!

    Welcome, good to have you here :p

    It looks really profesional but as it is a hosted solution I would probably not use it especially with the high costs you have for data transfer and disk space

    Hi Charles,

    Wonderful to have you here, and good to catch up after 4 or 5 years.

    I used Instantestore.com.au for about 4 years, and the only reason I stopped was because I had a heart attack! In December 2006, in just 21 days, Fussy.com.au did just over 600 gift hamper orders. Flowers were a separate issue! Instantestore worked really well.

    Here's a look at my old site (bit dated now!): http://replay.waybackmachine.org/20061205045843/http://fussy.com.au/

    Their product seems to have really improved and kept up with the times. What I liked about them was that it was one set fee per month - it was $US49 then - and that included everything including hosting. It also has it's own customer email marketing system, so you can do away with aWeber or similar.

    As Charles says, they have a free trial, so if anyone is keen on running an eCommerce shop, have a look and a play. You can then make your own mind up.

    Charles and his wife Sui Sim are lovely people, and I can truly recommend them to you.

    Cheers, Ned (Admin)

    Hey there everyone! So sorry for the late reply! I was actually in Australia and was enjoying myself so much in this lovely country of yours that I actually did not have the time to check out this forum and reply to you guys... Very sorry about that!

    Anyway, back to your questions... yes, we do have loads of Australian clients. :) Ned was one of them. And Ned, good to hear from you too and thanks for singing our praises. We really enjoyed working with you throughout the years as well.... Here's a list of our Australian clients.

    http://www.prettyinviting.com.au/
    http://www.mammothmerchandise.com.au/
    http://www.lildaks.com/
    http://www.flowers-express.com.au/

    Those are the ones that I can remember off hand but please do check us out.

    And sp@rky13, I urge that you do give InstanteStore a trial run. The rates that we put up for the transfers are the normal charges that we have for overage. We can have customized plans to suit your needs. We even have a team who works on customizing InstanteStore for you to suit your store's need as we may not have all the features that you're looking for. :)

    So once again, thanks for the warm welcome and Australia rocks!

    Hi Charles,

    Welcome to the forum. Do you have any domains? I have a bunch of .my which actually get some half decent traffic. Do need to be a little careful though - the .my registry deleted pig.my because it was sensitive to the Islamic religion (wouldn't have complained if they said it was a lame typo hack!!)

    I will check out your store... currently in the market

    Cheers

    David

    Hi David Are you joking about the pig.my deletion??? maybe try pork.my ham.my bacon.my ?



    Looks like some big companies wont be expanding to there and buying generic domain names like they have in Australia?

    Hey, David. Wow! You serious about that? Didn't know MyNic was that strict.... Oh well! I will be on the look out. I do have some .com.my domains but nothing broaching the sensitive area. :)
