    Building A free store

    hi everyone ,
    I know vstore.com to build an online store for free.
    Do you know any other free services like that?
    As far as I've heard it doesn't generate any income(vstore)
    Any other recommendations ?

    OSCommerce is free... but to be completely honest you have to spend money to make money. Even with OSCommerce you'll still have to pay for web hosting, SSL certificates, merchant account and payment gateway fees, bank account, and more. Businesses take money to start and run.

    In the same note, most online services that were free are no longer in business because they didn't make money. For someone to keep a website/service up and running they have to cover their costs and/or make a profit.

    Free things only seem to be free. In fact, they can be very expensive. If you wanna make money, you should be ready for spending money before.

    That's what everybody is saying...you have to put money down to start a business...you don't make money before you spend it.
