What do you have to do?
You are responsible for fulfilling orders you receive via the virtual store
with high quality of professionalism and within an appropriate time (5
business days). You will be emailed a shipping document that will list
Ballparks.com as the vendor with your address to return the items. You must
market the virtual store yourself - for example getting links to your
virtual store from other web sites in order to generate traffic, and
real-world marketing such as promoting the link at your website to existing
customers and offline advertising as you see fit. We can help with the
technical aspects of this.
How much does it cost?
Ballparks.com works on a commission basis, if a product sells, then we are
paid for that ability. This is a flexible solution and so commissions can
vary depending upon your product and it's ability to sell. Please email us with your
ideas or specific requirements to begin negotiations.
We charge only for our time in configuring, adding your products and
designing the site to your specification. We charge a one-time setup fee of
$500 which gets your virtual store setup and running as above. We will need
the verbiage and images (one 400 pixels wide or better picture as the
feature piece and one 100x60 pixel picture to display throughout the Virtual
Mall) to load into your virtual store. On top of this you will need to open
a payment provider account through PayPal and this would usually cost a
small percentage commission on each transaction. This will allow direct
transfer of your money each month electronically.
You can have as much or as little control over the virtual store and product
prices (putting up new photos etc) as you wish. Other on-going maintenance
or development work can be undertaken on an ad-hoc basis.
This is an easy, cost-effective and an eye-catching way to get your
photographs / prints or other memorabilia online and to help grow your
