“Why did we choose Goodsie? We are a home-based store, so as soon as we heard about this ecommerce opportunity, we were on it. After checking Goodsie's style, creative touch, and the endless options to build your own site, we were sold!
Thank you, Goodsie. You inspired us!”
“As new members of the Goodsie community, we would like to thank you for the wonderful product because it is part of our success today! Most of the people going through the website think we got it done by an agency for thousands of Euros! The user experience is simple but great, so are the product presentations, the design effects, and so on! We could not expect a better website to host our bracelets.”
“I’m loving my Goodsie site. I can’t get over how much freedom it gives me with my layout. Thanks for creating such a helpful interface, too.”
“We use Goodsie because of the ease of use, the packaged services, and the beautifully up-to-date design. For a small up-and-coming business, Goodsie had everything we were looking for. The first thing we were drawn to was the end design. To our visitors, they see a slick and clean web experience. To us, we see a user-friendly environment. We also like all of the management services: statistics, orders, marketing — it’s a virtual all-in-one. We love being Goodsie-powered and can hardly wait to see what features you come up with next.”
“We were looking for an easy to use, affordable, and professional e-commerce platform to host the products. We loved that Goodsie streamlines ordering and payment processing, which allows volunteers to easily manage the online catalog.”
“Goodsie is one of the easiest, cheapest ways to create a good-looking e-commerce site.”
“Goodsie is helping make a previously specialized service like the development of an e-commerce site accessible (and automated), becoming the Wordpress for digital shops.”
“With the addition of retail products came the decision of what kind of shop to set up… and we are completely smitten with Goodsie.”
“Goodsie has managed to create a simple, polished system that feels friendly and welcoming, even for first-time sellers. The sensible pricing means setting up a store isn’t only quick, but also easy on your wallet.”
“I fell instantly in love with Goodsie! The name — so cute! The format is simple, clean and modern. Plus, the fact that it allows digital content with instant downloads, I was head over heels. My toy shop features printable paper craft toys. Goodsie’s integration with Fetch allows me to send my PDF printables immediately after purchase. This feature alone is a great time saver for me.
Goodsie has allowed me to develop and grow my brand with a professional online presence. I’m beyond thrilled with my website now, it’s everything I imagined it could be!”
“We have really enjoyed using your storefront, and find it so easy to use! Your terrific interface is so smart! Thanks for being there for us.”
“I decided I wanted to set up my very own online shop when a friend showed me the Goodsie promo video. It inspired me to do something I enjoyed, and Goodsie allowed me to do that very easily.”
“We love Goodsie because it gives you so much freedom to create your own vision of a store, so simply. It has been working wonderfully for us!”
“I seriously love Goodsie!”
“I really like that Goodsie is newer and less corporate-y than the others and the monthly fee is reasonable. A monthly fee is much better than fee-per-item in almost all cases. I have had a lot of questions since starting my store and the customer service has been impeccable. I have been personally addressed and helped within 24 hours (typically less than that) with every one of my inquiries. The ability to customize the design of each store is a great feature. I see nothing but good things to come for Goodsie!”
“Goodsie.com is a place to create a beautiful custom-branded storefront on top of a rich and fast-growing platform, and all for just $15/mo!”
“I have just discovered Goodsie.com. These people are amazing! They have achieved perfection in making websites accessible and easy!”
“We chose Goodsie because it was the easiest and most stylish e-commerce platform we tested to design our website. We tested at least 10 different e-commerce platforms, and none of them came close to giving us the custom look that we achieved with Goodsie. The fact that we were able to design a unique store, without the help of a web designer or learning code really saved us a ton of money. Goodsie is also affordable, which is another great feature. Thanks, Goodsie!”
“Goodsie doesn’t restrict us… in fact Goodsie encouraged us!
Creating our Goodsie shop was very simple and we’re really happy with the way it turned out. Goodsie’s monthly fee is extremely competitive (only $15/mo. is really amazing!!) and we couldn’t say no to no transaction fees (what????!!!).”
“I chose Goodsie as the platform for the store because it was simple and easy to set up. It had all the features I needed without being overly complicated.”
“Until recently, setting up a store to sell digital products like this was a bit of a nightmare. We’re not web savvy at all, so we wanted something that was going to be easy to set up, something simple that let the image packs speak for themselves. We stumbled across Goodsie a few months back by accident and then noticed it worked with the Fetch API. We knew it was going to be what we had been looking for and totally fell in love with the system.”
“In the past month since we’ve taken our new site live, we have had no problems at all. The ability to add new products in about 60 seconds, the simple but effective navigation for our visitors, the available templates have all made the small monthly fee more than worth it for us.”
“Bob asked me to build him an online shop that he could easily update each week and that was easy for people to navigate, with a clear and simple design. I chose Goodsie because it seemed to me to be the most simple to use and looks the nicest! It’s that simple, really. I think most online shops look clunky and cluttered, but Goodsie keeps it simple and smooth. There are a good number of options design-wise and none of them get in the way of being able to get your own style across.”
“We chose Goodsie because it was so easy to set up. We already had a PayPal account, so by adding a few images and product descriptions we had the store up and running in a matter of hours.”
“The shop is coming along, and Goodsie is making it easy to focus on finding [new products] instead of managing code.”
“Goodsie, a NY based online storefront from the creators of Favors.Me, has created a simple way of creating a website similar to WordPress. Users are able to choose from multiple layout options, color palettes, background patterns, and typography without having to worry about HTML or coding issues. Users can transfer domain names for free, get site analytics, and connects to most payment options including PayPal without charging transaction fees. This is a great option that allows the owner to integrate a “cart ” without alienating some buyers by having them “join” the site to purchase from you like Etsy or Ebay.”
“I chose Goodsie primarily because I loved the “already there” aesthetic of it. It felt cool, clean and current, and I liked the way it fit with the look of my product and how I wanted my site to feel. Once I began building the e-commerce shop I then researched around some and even tried building a shop on another site and found that Goodsie was unparallelled in ease of setting up and shopping on.”
“Goodsie was like a gift from the heavens for me. I’ve been limping along on Big Cartel with my limited knowledge of CSS. Don’t get me wrong, they are a great platform but much more suited to web developers and graphic desigers than the average start-up small business owner. Goodsie immediately stuck out to me! Since my business depends on a website with beautiful colors, fonts, and graphic, Goodsie was a natural fit. The degree of customization without any knowledge of CSS or HTML made it so easy and fun to create a beautiful website within a very short period of time. Thank you for your amazing product!”
“Being a complete technophobe, I asked my friend … for an idiot-proof website solution and he recommended Goodsie. It was good advice, because I recently showed my site to [another friend, who designed the graphics for the store] and he said, and I quote, ‘That's surprisingly professional looking for you.’”
“I love the look of the site, much more unique than that of other sites.”
“I definitely love the simple look and easy interface. I recommend it to everyone I know who is looking for an e-tail situation.”
“I appreciate all the hard work your team has done. Finding Goodsie has made my life so much easier, I also tried BigCartel, but was unable to create the look and feel of a unique store without having to dive heavily into CSS. You guys have really made it plug and play.”
“Goodsie allows for people like me to put my goods up for sale without having to code my own website. I can concentrate on the sales and creation rather than spending weeks on trying to create an online store. It is very user friendly and is sufficient for what I need at this stage.”
“From scratch to a 49-product functioning ecommerce site with Goodsie in just 5h 45m.”
“I chose Goodsie because it not only has an easy to use interface, but it really focuses on the designers and creative people out there trying to make a few extra dollars doing what they love. It’s a great community!”
“Finding Goodsie was seriously God's way of answering my prayers! I had been working with a web designer who completely bailed on me when we were coming close to our deadline and needless to say, I was left completely stranded one month away from my company’s launch date, without a clue how to build a website. Goodsie was not only easy to use, but the template they give you (while simple) still allowed for my artistic creativity to show through. I was able to design a website that looked and felt like my company! EVERYTHING about Goodsie is fabulous, but my favorite part, the part that makes them SHINE, is their customer service! Thank you Goodsie for making my e-commerce business operate smoothly!”
“Thanks again for the excellent support and good communication! Our hops store is beautiful!”
“This is just a note to say thanks for your great website!! Beats the rest by far. I really like the simple interface and the integration of coupons!! Will recommend it to anyone I know who wants to start an online shop.”
“Goodsie is amazing! Even in design, the site and customer experience navigating through it compliments the clean and sophisticated aesthetic and guideline I too try to provide with [my business]. Big respectful KUDOS and thanks!!!”
“Goodsie is an excellent tool for anyone who wants to sell a product online. It is especially appealing for users who have a limited budget and little to no experience with design. The user interface is very easy to learn and the application allows users to quickly customize their stores.”
“The team that brought you Flavors recently launched Goodsie. From now on, you’ll have no excuse [not] to start a web-shop ‘cause Goodsie is dead simple. Within minutes you can setup your own without the hassle of coding or bullsh*t payment deals. This allows you to take care of selecting the finest products and make sure the design of your shop stands out. From then on, you can start selling out while checking realtime stats, for only $15 a month. Lovvit!”
“Entrepreneurship is the new American way, and a new service from the makers of personal brand profile pages Flavors.me wants to help small business owners succeed with 2.0 media. Existing online shopping markets exist, but Goodsie offers a cost-effective online storefront that is easy to set up â€” no coding is required. Merchants can offer customers options to pay with PayPal [and] Google Checkout … and current merchants sell almost anything from music to art, to clothes, to candy. And yes, you read that right: you can even sell digital products like MP3s. Goodsie integrates with Fetch so you can sell and deliver digital products.”
“It's cheap and it's easy â€” Goodsie, the e-commerce hosting platform founded this year, lets would-be retailers set up shop on the web all by themselves. Think of it as the Blogger.com of e-commerce â€” no web knowledge or experience required.
Like Blogger or WordPress, Goodsie offers the customizable layouts, templates, and all the tools for creating a new site under a unique domain name â€” but with the additional function of integrating a payment system. Retailers can opt to use either Google Checkout or PayPal for sales.
As Etsy's thousands of sellers have already proven, providing an accessible layout for people to sell goods online is a key entry point to get people to, well, sell things online. What makes Goodsie unique is that it enables its users to set up completely independent web sites. Oh, and what also makes it special is that it's dirt-cheap; the service is free the first month and just $15 per month after that.
Goodsie's been getting the attention it deserves â€” Business Insider included Goodsie on their list of 25 New York start-ups to watch, and Time Inc. gave the site props on their even shorter list of 10 noteworthy start-ups. Jonathan Marcus, Goodsie's founder, has also received funding from investors like Barnes & Noble's president of ecommerce, John Foley, and Jake Lodwick, who founded Vimeo. From the ease of use to the high-end backing, it kind of makes you want to set up shop online, doesn't it?”
“An ecommerce site that’s incredibly easy to set up without knowing how to design or code.”
“Bringing e-commerce to the masses, Goodsie makes it quick and easy for anyone to set up shop online through the creation of professional, custom Websites where they can sell their goods and services.”
“The diversity of businesses and people that use Goodsie shows that it can serve any type of business due to its minimalist and clean template.”
“Great support story #1: Heather @goodsiesupport. Reads emails, understands the issue, gets it looked at, gets it fixed. Friendly, too. Thx!”
“I chose Goodsie because it was reasonably priced, easy to use and took away the hassle of having to create my own e-commerce portion on my website.”
“Our new amazing wonderful shopping cart provider, Goodsie.com featured BelleStyle on their Blog this week! If you haven’t heard, Goodsie makes it easy for independent companies like BelleStyle to offer products online. When we were looking to update our cart, a few things that drew us to Goodsie were the large product images, the sharing features and the awesome statistics that are viewed in a direct and integrated manner.”
“Goodsie is brilliant! I look at some of the IT speak flying about and can’t make head nor tail of it, so for me to be able to set up a shopfront by myself with no technical knowledge at all has been awesome, so thank you all at Goodsie.”
“I really love Goodsie. It makes e-commerce so easy.”
“I’ve enjoyed using Goodsie a lot. I love the simplicity and user friendliness of the designs and the capability to personalize!”
“Of all the questions that I regularly receive concerning using the Internet for business, the most common one by far is: how do I set up an online store? Of course, this is not necessarily the simplest of questions to answer. Until now, that is, thanks to our pick of the week, Goodsie.com. Currently in Beta testing, Goodsie is a web-based, online store builder. Now, before you decide to turn your nose up, serious web designers, head over and take a good look. In my opinion, Goodsie has better features and functionality in their Beta state than many competitors who have been around for years.
A beautiful interface, enough options to create the custom online store of your dreams and a truly functional output, one would be hard pressed to find a better tool to help you build a great commerce site. Of course, there are other factors involved in the creation of an online business, but this is a great start! Head over to Goodsie.com right now and sign up. Well worth seeing and I think you’ll agree.”
“Before stumbling across Goodsie I had tried the craft fair thing just for kicks, but found that it really wasn’t the scene for a 23-year-old guy with a laser cutter. When I found out about Goodsie I was signed up for an invitation and set up an account as soon as I got it. I had a storefront within minutes, leaving the most challenging part being the decision as to what I was going to sell.
It can’t possibly make selling your own stuff any easier or pleasant. You guys have something great here and I look forward to growing along with it.”
“I handle the day-to-day management of the business, and have been impressed with how Goodsie keeps me organized.
Goodsie is the perfect solution to what we want to accomplish with our online store. We tried server-based options that made us feel like we were spending more time scrolling through code than we were actually spending on running the business! With Goodsie, we get a professional-looking store, an easy-to-use control panel, and all the stats we could possibly use. The variety of payment options and ease of setting them up also attracted us to Goodsie. It makes it easier for people world-wide to place orders.”
“I just wanted to take the time to thank you for both the post you made on the Goodsie blog as well as Goodsie in general. It is such a great tool and has been such a blessing. It is so easy to use and I am so amazed at how well the store is going. Thank you again!”
“I can’t believe how easy it was to use and how perfect the shop turned out! I’m very impressed. … Goodsie is making it possible for Hannah to make this move to Africa, and we are so grateful.”
“I had no idea it would take off this fast and that the Goodsie site would be so smooth and easy! Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us make our dream come true.”
“I have been wrestling with Dreamweaver for months, trying to put together a reasonably professional storefront with minimal success. For those who don’t have the means or technical know-how, learning html, css, ftp, etc. is terribly frustrating — especially so when the time can be better spent tackling other problems.
My son suggested Goodsie some month ago but I assumed it was just another service offering canned templates that have always disappointed us. Finally, I sent a few photos and asked him to give Goodsie a try. Within an hour, he had the basics up and running, something I haven’t achieved in hours and hours of hair pulling with Dreamweaver.
Better still, administering the store will demand so little time. For the small business, Goodsie is a Godsend, providing us with essential tools to reach our customers. I have NEVER sent a message of appreciation such as this, even when I’ve liked the product. Surely there have to be countless businesses facing the same dilemma as ourselves. The market potential would seem limitless!”
“Goodsie was a snap! It took me ten minutes to figure it out and post our first run of hand-dyed, hand-screened designs â€” and being able to track our traffic is a big help!”
“In celebration of Cyber Monday, I'd like to draw your attention to Goodsie, a new web application from the creators of Flavors.me. It's a simple, beautiful DIY e-commerce service that lets you create your own e-store. Running a store on the Internet has never been easier.
Goodsie provides custom domain names, site statistics, custom shipping options and optional digital delivery via Fetch for digital products like MP3s. The statistics page is particularly helpful as it shows you a timeline of visitors, where they're coming from, what they're doing, what they're searching for and your site's bounce rate.
Why Goodsie? A Goodsie site feels more personal than opening up a shop on Etsy, which focuses on the importance of community. It's beautifully designed too. Every Goodsie account comes equipped with the same dead-simple design panel from Flavors.me. The easy to use interface includes layout options, background uploads, custom color palettes, pages and a range of fonts.”
“Goodsie is a super-easy way to create a very professional-looking online shop. Just take a look at the screenshots on their site to see how simple, yet professional everything looks. I already have a beta-account myself for a while now and if I had any reason to set up a online shop, I'd go with Goodsie.”
“[Goodsie] will give anybody a true chance to have his very own store ready for Christmas, and make a far from negligible income.”
“My client wanted a portfolio website where she could also sell her work, but did not have a lot of computer experience and technical skills to be able to maintain it. After spending some time with her, I revised my proposal for her so we could work with Goodsie. We edited her photos and loaded the work together so she could learn. She’s excited that she can easily work on her own site, and is so excited about our next project, which we will be creating a homepage with Flavors.me”
“Goodsie makes it easy for me to have a site that looks like a fancy portfolio site, but makes it easy to sell my work, too. I have also been able to feature work in my local galleries and link back to them, which they like. Now one of my galleries wants to display more of my work. I’m excited to have a new way to reach more customers.”
“It was so, so easy to set up a great looking, feature-rich site with Goodsie. Thanks for making it possible!”
“Spending a good portion of my day with Magento's complexity, it's a very different experience to review a product which is dedicated to simplicity and hassle-free usability…This (apple-eque) reduction of features is surely Goodsie's biggest strength. For people just getting their hands wet with ecommerce or selling only a handful of products, this is without a doubt a great alternative. Without having to know anything about programming, one can easily set up a good-looking and easy-to-use store in no time.”
