Thanks for your input guys.

Jason and John you both pointed out that running two systems at the same is beneficial for my business, which I can’t agree more.


To answer your question I deal with Apple accessories, most of which are sourced from authorised Australian distributors of brand name products.

Therefore I find it hard to compete with many other sellers who source cheap products from oversea manufacturers. After all on eBay more customer care about prices above other things.

I believe a professional online site would be more suitable for what I’m intending to achieve.


Your post is very helpful and informative.

I have checked out a few Australia hosts, but I find the US based ones more appealing as they are more user friendly and cost-effective. (please correct me if i’m wrong)

My main concern about an independent site is how to bring in traffic.

Any inputs would be appreciated.
