We are in the midst of revamping the opportunities for entrepreneurs and business operators to get online and share their bargains within our network.
It has been a productive time of development and growth for BargainCentral.ca as we learn what best serves the visitors and enquirers of our website. From those experiences we are providing more precise opportunities as Vendors, as eCommerce website operators (NEW), and as eFranchisees.
For our Vendors we will be making a single Vendor Package available, and that will be for affiliate and 3rd party websites. For those who have their own website, or who link to a website whose products they represent, this package will provide them a low cost platform to create additional exposure and awareness of their product line. Selected products from specific categories or current sale items can direct visitors to a greater product line and generate customer interest to return. A complete catalog system is available to list key products with descriptions and pricing information, and with links direct to the product and shopping cart. As with every offering, full support is part of the Vendor Package as each Vendor is a member of the online community and have direct access to our support teams.

Our latest offering, eCommerce Site – new to our platform! – will offer a fully functional shopping cart in an independent eCommerce website. List your products and process the payments through your preferred gateways, all within your own online store. You can also easily map your own top level domain to your store from the admin tools so that visitors can find and bookmark pages and products under your domain name. And with the support of our friends at Nositeunseen each website is a part of the BargainCentral.ca network, interconnected and directly accessible to the support team members and to other website operators. Communicate, collaborate, ask questions, and receive support. The network is designed to encourage helping and supporting its members for the best opportunities for success of their businesses.

The eFranchise provides a protected territory, BargainCentral.ca service that offers the same Vendor and eCommerce Site packages. This is an investment opportunity to make use of our fully supported service platform to create businesses and to make sales. Once a territory is established there would be no other BargainCentral.ca eFranchise set up as a competitor for that region. For the flat fee all revenues will be yours to receive, manage, and distribute. However, you are still an integrated part within the online community and you and your Vendors and customers can avail yourself and themselves of the full support of our team members, and of one another. Our support teams offer technical support for website operation and to keep things running, and they also offer support for your business endeavours. Connect and make friends throughout the community to share ideas and to offer experience. The network is designed to benefit each member, and every member.

So what else is new?
Our online shopping experience is being merged into one store. Instead of browsing products under various geographic locations they will soon be searchable by location and also fully available under one roof. As online eCommerce grows the distinctions between local and global become less rigid so this amalgamation of product lines will better serve our Vendors and visitors.
Our online auction site is being brought back into our network instead of being a separate network to itself. Originally we had them separated because of conflicts between the eCommerce and the auctions software but those are being corrected and so members of any site within the network will also have access to the auctions network without having to create a new account.
On Facebook we have introduced a new group, Great Bargains and Deals Online, and we welcome everyone to join us to list their online product deals and to browse for their next great bargain.
