Quick, easy and affordable, Spiffy Stores makes e-commerce a reality for everyone

Sydney, Australia - April 20, 2010

Domain Hosting Shop today announced the commercial release of their revolutionary new e-commerce software, Spiffy Stores. In a few simple steps, Spiffy Stores allows anyone to create a stylish, customised website with a built-in shopping cart in minutes, not hours.

Spiffy Stores' unique software eliminates the overwhelming complexity facing many business owners starting out with e-commerce. Because of its simplicity, even novice Internet users can now have a fully functional e-commerce website with nothing more complicated than a handful of product photos and a few minutes of their time.

With customisable, contemporary design templates, a rich feature set and industry-leading security, Spiffy Stores gives business owners an elegant, well-designed and user-friendly online store in just a few simple steps. And by allowing for the Australian GST system, it solves the sales tax headache many other off-the-shelf solutions pose.

Spiffy Stores are exceptionally affordable, typically allowing users to recoup the cost of the site from the first sale of each month. A 30-day risk-free trial can be upgraded quickly and easily to one of three plans that start at just $25 AUD per month, with no setup fees. Unlike most other solutions, hosting, security, backups, email and bandwidth are also included in the monthly fee.

Spiffy Store founders and old friends Brian Kenn and Shawn Finlay together have over 15 years of experience creating online stores. Frustrated with complicated open source e-commerce software that was overloaded with unnecessary features and bugs, they created Spiffy Stores to help small and medium sized Australian business owners get their products online quickly and with the minimum of effort. They understood that by automating many of the more complex processes such as back-end website management, payment processing, shipping calculation, inventory management and reporting, business owners would be free to spend valuable time on other areas of their business.

Kelly & Reuben Anderson, owners of Hairfairyclips.com.au, have been using Spiffy Stores Beta version since February 2008, and it has helped them create a steady, expanding online business. “As the owner of a home-based business, I don’t have the time to upkeep a complicated website," says Kelly Anderson. “Spiffy Stores are great. They really understand the challenges we face and were there every step of the way. It was great to finally have the tools to grow an online small business and earn an income doing something we enjoy.” 

Finlay encourages anyone that has been thinking about launching their own online business to turn their dreams into reality sooner rather than later. “During the 2009 holiday season, consumers spent upwards of $20 billion online and the trend towards online shopping will continue to grow. The opportunity is there right now for anyone wanting to start an online business” Finlay says. “Because Spiffy Stores is so easy and affordable, we are seeing even the most technically inexperienced people generate a new stream of income that they have previously considered unattainable. It’s very inspiring!”

Brian Kenn, Technical Director of Spiffy Stores, agrees. “We realised that there was a place in the market for a product like Spiffy Stores which is flexible enough to meet a wide range of needs whilst being simple to use.  We wanted to prove just how easy it can be to have your own online store.”
