Why is this a Win-Win-Win? Your Business Wins, Your Community Wins and Your Local Economy Wins.
Your Business Wins:
You’ll find that to sell a product on Amazon, Etsy, EBay or any other marketplace, your total cost per sale will be right around 10% by the time you make a sale, so our transaction fees are very competitive. With Amazon, Etsy, EBay or other marketplaces you run the risk of losing money should your product not sell within the listing period, forcing you to spend more money to relist your product. Your product listings on Shop Main Street Online do not expire by date and we charge no listing fees to ensure that you cannot lose money.
Taking on the cost of having a custom e-commerce website designed, maintained, hosted, secured, optimized, marketed and updated is cost prohibitive for many small businesses in America, so you can shed that cost and stress by joining the rest of your community and sell on Main Street Marketplace.
Your business can proudly show that it is donating 1% of marketplace sales or 10% of your transaction fees right back to your community.
Your Community Wins:
10% is a major commitment to participating communities. 10% of transaction fees are donated to your community through participating chambers of commerce and local nonprofit organizations to improve quality of life in your own town. The more we can help your business grow with online sales, the better off everyone in your community will be through improved quality of life.
Your Local Economy Wins:
Join the rest of the businesses in your town on Main Street Marketplace and people in your town and across America will have the opportunity to buy local in one easy to find place. It’s like having open doors 24/7.
Shop Main Street Online is a privately held American business. We are head quartered in Cedarburg Wisconsin. In addition to sales and use taxes in every state, we pay our income tax to the State of Wisconsin and to the IRS for our Federal taxes.
Amazon, EBay, Etsy and every other publicly traded marketplace company online is a foreign company drawing all of their revenue out of the United States avoiding paying any State or Federal Taxes whatsoever, draining dollars away from the American economy, which hurts every American in the long run.
