    Hi Everyone,

    its great to finally join here, been meaning to do it for the last couple of months but it simply keeps slipping my mind! (as i think most of you could understand) i am 18 years of age and currently in the process of putting my new website and business together which is Discount Shopping Australia.

    I have a few years experience on the internet (Age playing a factor) and i would say i have a medium level of how a business should work, worked full-time at Supercheap Auto & Autobarn both for 1 year each. In that time i took into account how to interact with customers and how they should be treated, best ways to resolve conflicts with Returns & Warranty issues (This was the worst headache) i must say after two years i had enough of working for other people and for the past 4 months have been working to start-up my own.

    I aim to provide the best prices available for Big named items on TV’s,Phones,Computers, Home ware, Automotive, Baby items & Basically everything you would find in the stores such as Target, Big W, Kmart, JB-HIFI, Harvey Norman etc. I’m still in the daily process of adding suppliers and getting reseller accounts, as to start-up iam simply using Reseller/Dropshipping accounts (i understand the risks which is why i simply only use Australian Drop shippers/Resellers that i have already ordered threw.

    The website will still be a few weeks until it is 100% Up and running, As we are still opening Merchant Accounts to process credit cards etc, But so far myself and close friends and family say its coming along nicely. The link to our website is provided in my sig ( feel free to have a look and leave a review below).

    Thanks for your time,

    Beau Clarke

    Hi Beau,

    Welcome to the forums :)

    I agree with Ann, the website looks great. Whilst I appreciate you are still working on it, it looks like it will be easy to navigate and search on products etc.

    It may be something you have already looked and just not showing at the moment – but, a quick look tells me that your ABN on the website for “Discount Shopping Australia” doesn’t actually match up to the trading name that comes up for that ABN… If you haven’t already done so, make sure you register the business name – a new business name system is coming into place later this month so you may also wish to familiarise yourself with that if not already – you can read more here.

    Wishing you all the best for your business – congratulations to you for taking this leap and setting yourself up like this :)

    Thanks for that information, i have applied for an ABN for Discount Shopping Australia like you have suggested. Glad everyone is liking the site, i plan to make it as easy to use as possible there is nothing worse then not being able to find a product easily.

    In can out you in touch with a pet food and accessories supplier who I think will dropship.
    PM me your Details and i will sus them out more.

    Other suggestions:
    1. Being a discount site, you may need to display an RRP. Helpful as you will be just another price comparison touchpoint for savvy shoppers and this may help retain them

    2. Maybe not have the categories with no products, or if your want to keep them, put a form that peeps can fill in “notify me when products are added to this category”
