Option 2: The Ultimate! A Selling-Presence in SAMarketPlace!
SAMarketPlace is San Antonio's first on-line stop for business. If you've got actual goods for sale, put them in your own on-line catalog complete with photos of your products. If you have services or other non-tangible products, SAMarketPlace offers you the opportunity to get in front of the buying public with exclusive features not even your regular website offers.

If you already have a website, you can link it to your on-line catalog to give your customers a seamless shopping experience and double your opportunity to make the sale. On your existing site you can present and describe your products any way you want and, when your customer is ready to purchase, clicking your "BuyNow!" button, they are automatically hooked into our advanced commerce engine to complete the sale. All it takes on your part is a "copy-paste" of a couple of lines of text. That's it. Couldn't be easier or cheaper!

Here's what else you get:

  • Your store or business is presented with an attractive opening Banner Page featuring your business' logo and photo, an extensive description of your business and product line, your business' address, phone and fax numbers, a contact person's name, your eMail link, a link to your regular site and driving directions to your store from anywhere in the country.

  • An on-line catalog with unlimited items with photos and descriptions in as many categories you need;

  • Secure, Real-time, On-line Credit Card Verification

  • Orders are immediately sent to you via email, fax or both

  • A back-door key so you can add or remove items whenever you want, change prices, put things on sale, do whatever you want to build sales.

  • Free listing in the San Antonio Business Directory

  • Free Domain Name registration (yourbusiness.com).
    Internic's registration fee of $35 a year will be invoiced directly to your business.

  • Registration with the top 15 search engines.

  • Free participation in SACoupons

  • Free Gift Certificate participation (regular and electronic)

  • Free eMail announcement to our customers telling them you are now on-line.

  • Free participation in our monthly email announcements to our customers for specials

  • SAMarketPlace Window Sticker to remind your customers they can still shop you after hours

  • SAMarketPlace Counter Cards with your store's on-line address for customers to take with them

  • Co-op advertising opportunities in our traditional-media marketing

  • Buy-Now! capability for your regular website, doubling your exposure and opportunities to make a sale

If you've checked around, and you should, you know that no one else offers as much as SAMarketPlace. That's right, not even Yahoo! Besides, we are right here in Rivercity. Real people with only your success in mind, just a phone call or email away if you need assistance or have a question.

So you're probably asking yourself...What does all this cost?
For a fully functioning, order-taking store that's open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year to the entire world, it'll cost you about what you'd pay a part-time clerk for one hours work a day. And, it gets even cheaper if you...

Option 3: Standalone eCommerce-Enabled Site
Your own standalone, e-commerce site! Complete with a custom look and special features to meet any need. We'll still give you a SAMarketPlace storefront page and link it directly to your standalone store for added exposure. Ask for details (210-212-5600).

Option 4: The Mall Maker:
Want your own on-line mall? Multiple stores under your control! Perfect for mall operators, stripcenter owners and enterprising individuals. You select your tenants and set the rent - we do the rest. You won't find an offer like this anywhere else. Ask for details (210-212-5600).

Sounds too good to be true? Well, there are some caveats. First, you gotta have a real business. Second, you gotta pass our Better Business Bureau review (con-artists need not apply). Third, you gotta show us you shipped the order (that's the law). That's it.

So, now that you know you can reach out and sell around the world, give us a call or drop us an email. One of our specialists will get with you, show you how to put your products on-line and do all the other neat things you can do to drive sales your way.

If you can fill out an on-line form, you can be up and selling immediately. If you don't have an internet account, we can help you get one. If you don't even have a computer or don't want an internet account, we can do it all for you. In any case, setting up your storefront in SAMarketPlace is easier, cheaper and more fun than you ever imagined.

Don't delay! You never know when that special someone will drop in looking for that one-of-a-kind, sequined, armadillo purse on your shelf.

So, there you have it. For about what you'd pay a part-time clerk for an hour's work a day, you can have your own on-line storefront and do business with the millions of people around the world who've discovered just how fun and easy it is to shop on-line!
