Why an Ecommerce Website for E-bay & Amazon Sellers is a Must!

Ecommerce Store

If you have a brick and mortar store it goes without saying that you need to also have a digital storefront.  If this is in the form of an E-bay store, Amazon Marketplace store, or Facebook Page makes no difference you still should have a dedicated domain address such as www.YourGolfCartStore.com.  This way you can get away from Gmail, Hotmail, or AOL and use a professional You@YourGolfCartStore.com email address.  There are many advantages of having a standalone Ecommerce website beside adding parts you can include information such as store hours, special coupons, customer photos, blog posts and an FAQ’s page.  All of these items might seem silly or unnecessary, but with the amount of people searching the Internet to find answers, if you don’t have them they will go straight to your competitors who do.

E-bay and Amazon

Selling on E-bay and Amazon Marketplace is great because people go to these sites with the intent to purchase.  They are already a customer you just have to make sure they find you.  A good way to do that is with a solid common name.  If you sell on all available sites and your own don’t change your name if you are Your Golf Cart Store don’t sell on Amazon as Your Golf Cart Shop keep your identities the same so your customers learn to know who you are. 

With the wide variety of Ecommerce platforms and the increase of Ecommerce sites being created all the time developers are constantly creating additional plugins or add-ons for these platforms to allow you to connect your Ecommerce site with various other outlets such as E-bay and Amazon to allow you to control your inventory from one central site and have these inventory and price adjustments reflect on all outlets.  With little upfront cost you can have your order fulfillments handled at a central hub to ensure that orders are never missed or duplicated.  They even have add-ons so that you can automate the fulfillment process and generate purchase orders that are sent to your suppliers with all the information that is required so it is getting to the point where you website will be able to run with minimal effort on your end, after the initial setup that is.

EcommerceIf you currently have an Ecommerce site, E-bay store, Amazon Marketplace, Facebook page, we would love to hear from you what you have found that worked or didn’t work.  We are also working on ways to supply you with the information that you need to help with this automation process such as live inventory feeds with image urls and tracking feeds with shipping information once orders are fulfilled we will have more details on that in the upcoming months.

Do you have the need for speed?

Racing Golf Cart

Golf carts used to be all about playing 18 holes without the inconvenience of walking, but not anymore, now a days everyone is fitting out their golf carts with the latest parts and accessories, anywhere from radio consoles for listening enjoyment to lift kits and off road parts for fun in the mud. 

And well, as with anything that has a motor and the potential to go really fast, golf cars have made their way into the racing world!

With parts available such as high speed motors and gears it’s a wonder this sport hasn’t blown up larger just yet.  The sport, in which speed junkies jazz up their buggies before speeding them around drag race tracks, is growing rapidly though. Early on only a handful of people would show up. Now there are 7 corporate sponsors and an average of 3 to 5 hundred spectators at each event. The governing body organizes competitions in three categories, based on age groups and the speed of the carts. 

I say I am surprised this hasn’t become larger sport yet because along with being just a down right fun way to spend a Saturday or even as a whole weekend adventure. It is also just a FRACTION of the cost to sup up your golf cart then it is for the cost of fixing up a race car.  So for those with the need to speed and a low budget here’s the sport for you!

We supply most all of the parts you might need to make this dream of racing a golf cart a reality, with high speed motors and controllers, to high speed gears and freedom chips, Stenten’s has you covered!

So whether you’re just wanting to get along the green with a little more ease or want to get downright fast on the race track, give us a call today!

6 Insane: (But True) Things about Golf Carts

1.  The minimum age to drive a golf cart is 13 in Georgia, Alabama, California, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Vermont, and South Carolina.  Other states are 14-15 years of age.

2.  The first electric golf cart was custom made in 1932, but did not gain widespread acceptance. (Click here for details)

3.  How Much? Have you ever suffered from sticker shock? At the 2015 PGA Merchandise show Garia sold one of their decked out Carbon Fiber Mansory Edition carts for $87k the base price for this model is $52k. I doubt you would see that around high flying golf balls.

4.  120MPH! The next time your customer says they want to go fast find out if they want to set any records.  The Plum Quick Motors team did with their golf cart that went 120MPH see their run here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZ5btNXb9D8

5.  Extreme Stretch! The World’s Longest Golf Cart is 37 feet from bumper to bumper and sits on 49” tires.

6.  It’s a Golf Cart, It’s a Boat, It’s a Hybrid! The Hydra Gator is everything you could ever need and at a price tag of $60k it is not for the faint of heart.
