What makes people want to buy over the Internet and why would you want to sell over the Internet?

Byron asked:

I came across a new site that introduced the eBay Niche Super Store. They have a demo that I used to actually build my own demo super store. I thought it was easy and affective when all I had to do was follow a few easy steps and my niche super store was automatically created. Then I read when owning one of these stores, I will have access to over 28,000 products which are upgraded periodically. I will have my own eBay affiliate links automatically attached to each and every product that I sell. In turn eBay pays me a commission when a customer makes a purchase. I thought the demo was awesome. But do you think anyone would want to buy the products online?

Go have a look and tell me.

    Buying products on line is so easy, you don’t have to fight the crowds, drive all over town to find that one thing and hey it’s fun to get packages in the mail. Go for it.

    that just depends on what your selling. I shop online a lot because the town i live in only has a tiny grocery store. i guess it just depends on the person!

    Well, when dealing with things like this (Internet Marketing and Retail), there are a few things that people look for when buying off of the internet. The first thing is what type of merchandise you are selling: If you have some things like knick-knacks and other memorabilia like that, it will tend to attract an older crowd of people that will tend to buy these things to auction them off later for more money that whet it it worth. Now, as far as them wanting to buy the products online, well that is a whole different story. Since you have direct eBay links, they may take it as that you have direct ties to them and you offer the same guarantees as them, and you are approving that the merchandise that you are selling is the merchandise that they are getting, etc . . . and they will tend to buy it because it is linked with eBay. Also, seeing that you have a wide variety of products (28,000 +) to be exact, then they will bu it because they know they can get it for cheaper that what they can buy it for in stores (If the item is sold in stores) because it is in bulk orders. In dealing with things featured on your website, like automobiles, etc . . . people may not want to buy because the fear of high shipping taxes, and the fear of the automobile getting damaged, etc . . . I like your website very much and I also would like to state a conclusion into all of this:

    *** People will buy your products if they are in bulk order and are cheap, if they are decent items that are worth having, and if they are easy to get (e.x: the payment process – credit card, etc . . .). ***
