Great News for Yahoo! Stores accepting Credit Cards

Posted on April 29th, 2010 by Matt Sampson - Colorado Web Solutions

Hi Everyone!

I am really excited to announce that we just secured record low rates on credit card processing this week for our clients! I know it’s not as exciting as a new feature release for your store, but these new low rates can save you some serious cash instantly! I’m assuming that you are paying somewhere between 2.19% and 2.69% depending on who your processor is. We just negotiated a record low of 2.04% for all of our clients. AND we got them to waive the set up fees, lower the cost per transaction fee and also lower the monthly statement fee’s!

Here’s what we are now able to offer you:

2.04% Fee’s on Credit Card Transactions

$0.24 transaction fees
$8.95 Monthly Statement fees

There has never been a better time to switch your credit card processing than right now.

How do I go about signing up for these low rates?

Signing up for credit card processing is super simple. We’ve got an online form for you that can be found here:

Do you already have a decent rate?

Let us run a comparison for you at no charge!

We are so confident that we can lower your monthly costs that our credit card partners have offered to run complimentary cost comparisons for any of our clients based on their current credit card company and our new lower rates. If you would like to take advantage of this free offer, please fill out this form and we will get in touch with you today!

Is it hard to switch my credit card processing? I’m really busy right now!

Switching credit card processing is an extremely simple process. Once you fill out the application and get approved we will take care of the rest for you. Typically within an hour we can switch your current processor to the new lower cost processor in your store. Nothing technical required at all on your side and your store will not have a moment of down time while we make the switch.

What’s the catch? Seems too good to be true.

There is no catch. That’s the beauty of it all. Our negotiating power has grown over the years as we have turned out hundreds and hundreds of Yahoo! Stores. Our goal is to pass the savings on to you. We know how hard it is to run a small business, we’ve been doing it for over a decade, and we know that cutting fixed costs (like credit card processing) is a huge benefit to businesses of all sizes.

I know this isn’t the most exciting announcement I’ve made this year, but it’s one that can save you a lot of money, so that makes me excited! Take 5 minutes today and look at this offer, it will be worth your time. And don’t forget, if you’d like a free evaluation of your current rates vs our new lower rates, it’s really simple, just fill out this form and we will get in touch with you quickly to go over everything.

Have a great week everyone, we hope you enjoy the new savings!

Special Pricing on the New Yahoo Store Floating Cart

Posted on April 12th, 2010 by Matt Sampson - Colorado Web Solutions

UPDATE ON FLOATING CART INSTALLS: We have recently discovered upon installing quite a few of the Floating Carts, that the technology is incredibly buggy and needs improvement from Yahoo! While we still feel that the Floating Cart is a very beneficial tool to use, we are advising all clients to wait to install the Floating Carts until Yahoo! can get the scripts fixed and tested more thoroughly. We are still accepting Pre-orders and will still be honoring our sale pricing, but at this point the floating cart installations have been put on hold. We will update the blog when we resume installations again.

Hi Everyone!

As you’ve probably seen in the last week, Yahoo! Store has released one of their most significant upgrades in the last few years, the new Floating Cart. We’ve been hard at work learning how to use and implement this new technology and we are pleased to announce today a special price on both the basic installation and advanced installation for the entire month of April.

Basic Installation: $200 – During April $125
Advanced Installation: $325 – During April $250

Save $75 on either installation during April!

Ready to get it installed? Fill out this form and we will get you set up quickly!

What is the Basic Installation of the Floating Cart?

The basic installation of the new Yahoo! Store floating cart will be added directly above your site’s wrapper in the top right corner. We will customize the colors to match your site perfectly and assist you in setting up the options and features.

How much does the Basic Floating Cart Installation Cost?

The basic Installation will be priced at $200 starting in May, but for the entire month of April, we are offering a $75 early bird discount bringing the total cost to only $125!

[Sign Up Now]

What if I want my floating cart integrated directly into my site?

We are also offering an Advanced Installation of the Floating Cart that will integrate the floating cart directly into your site. An example of advanced integration would be replacing the “My Shopping Cart” link within your stores design with the new floating cart.

How much does the Advanced Floating Cart Installation Cost?

The advanced Installation will be priced at $325 starting in May, but for the entire month of April, we are offering a $75 early bird discount bringing the total cost to only $250!

[Sign Up Now]

We are very excited about this new technology from Yahoo! Merchant Solutions and we are ready to install it on your site! If you are not familiar with the new Floating Cart yet, Yahoo! has posted a detailed blog post about it here.

As always, if you have any questions, please let us know! We are here to help.

Remember, this special pricing is only valid during the month of April, so don’t delay!

Colorado Web Solutions launches Yahoo Store Image Peeler

Posted on April 8th, 2010 by Matt Sampson - Colorado Web Solutions

Colorado Web Solutions is pleased to announce the release of our newest service, the Yahoo! Store Image Peeler. If you’d like to read the details of this service, we’ve got it all outlined here.

To give you a quick summary, our Image Peeler service is designed to go into your Yahoo! Store, download every single product image active in your store, rename them with the correct formatting (Item ID Code based for CSV uploads) and then deliver a single zipped file straight to your inbox. The service costs $225 and is typically delivered within 24 business hours.

The Image Peeler is perfect for stores that are switching from Manual Item Additions to a CSV upload, for merchants who want to edit all of their product images in bulk, for store owners who want to keep a backup of all of their product images, for merchants opening a second (or third!) Yahoo! Store and even for merchants looking to expand their store to additional platforms. Any of these scenarios would traditionally require hours and hours of work for merchants, but with the introduction of the Colorado Web Solutions Image Peeler, it’s all automatic and perfect each time. Could be the best $225 you spend on your store this year.

If you have any questions about the Yahoo! Store Image Peeler or if you would like to sign up for an Image Peel, please let us know. We’re here to help.

Have a great Thursday everyone.
