Mar. 12, 2014 10:55:32 PDT: Be Our Guest: Guest Checkout now Available!

Guest Checkout now available!

Anyone can now purchase items on Webstore.com.

All sellers have this new feature enabled in their accounts.

Sellers: Guest purchases are Pre-Paid on Webstore.com (no non-paying buyers).

Guest Checkout Eligibility:

For items to be eligible for Guest checkout they must:

  • Offer Fixed Buy Now Price
  • Have posted shipping costs
  • Offer an online payment method (such as PayPal)

Sellers may disable guest checkout for their accounts in their settings.



Oct. 10, 2013 16:46:10 PDT: New: Local Pickup Option

Sellers can now give buyers the option of picking up items locally. If you're a seller and you don't mind conducting your business in person, you may select the "Allow Local Pickup" checkbox and potential buyers will know they can meet you to conduct the transaction in person. Buyers and Sellers can use the Webstore Message Board after a sale to coordinate a meet.

The "Allow Local Pickup" checkbox can be found just beneath the existing "International Shipping" option in both the Easypost and long listing forms.

As an added bonus for those sellers who already have many items listed but would like to offer the Local Pickup option, we have added a new section to the Bulk Updates page which can be used to update all active listings at once to enable the Local Pickup option. This feature can be found in [ Members Area > Selling > Bulk Updates ].

Furthermore, we have added a new default in selling preferences so sellers can enable Local Pickup by default in all future listings. You can find your selling defaults in [ Members Area > My Account > Selling Prefs ].

As always, if you have any questions on Webstore features, please contact our helpful support staff using the "Contact Us" link at the top of every Webstore page.



Sep. 09, 2013 16:32:36 PDT: Promote your items on Twitter!

If you haven't tried Twitter yet what are you waiting for?

It takes only a few minutes to create a Twitter account and link it to your Webstore account so that your items are automatically promoted on Twitter for free!

See the Promotional Tools section in your Members Area for more information about Webstore/Twitter integration.

Once Twitter is linked to your Webstore account:

  • Your new listings will be Tweeted automatically
  • NEW: Re-Tweet your listings from the Open Items section in your Members Area with a single click.

Sep. 04, 2013 12:20:18 PDT: Announcing the Webstore API

We are very excited to announce the release of the Webstore API to the developer community.
We have been impressed with the applications developers have managed to build by data-scraping our web site, so we can’t wait to see what you’ll do with a supported API!

The Webstore API utilizes a combination of XML and Javascript/JSON calls and responses. Developers may register to use our API for free by contacting Webstore customer support.

Applications can use the API to easily integrate basic Webstore services such as site searches, conduct transactions, and even seller functions.

The API uses standard OAuth authentication to allow applications to safely access the Webstore service on a member's behalf without requesting his user name or password. A simpler subset of OAuth can be used to access REST API resources that do not require member authorization, such as site searches.

To get started with the API, sign up for a developer account by contacting the Webstore support team and obtain an application key and secret. Please also take a moment to browse our API documentation.
Given this is a new API, we’re eager to get your feedback, help you with any issues you may encounter, and hear your ideas for new features.

Thank you in advance for helping to creating a whole new way of integrating Webstore into websites, and exciting new tools for the Webstore community.

Happy Coding!

Webstore sellers will benefit two-fold as they increase their own sales through their individualized promotion, PLUS, earn additional money for every new buyer they bring to Webstore.

May. 01, 2013 14:23:30 PDT: Webstore now has over 100,000 active members!

Webstore now has over 100,000 active members!

Let's add another zero to that. "Word of mouth" is very powerful, and now, with over 100,000 active Webstore members, we have the potential (and a great opportunity) to reach a huge audience simply by spreading the word about Webstore to friends, co-workers, family. If every Webstore member was able to sign up 10 people, our membership would reach 1 million in a very short amount of time. That would mean 10x current sales for sellers, and millions of additional items to choose from for buyers. Not to mention the continued growth that would be generated once new members get to talking.

As a company, we're doing everything we can to increase our user base, but it can't compare to what YOU can do as our members and supporters. Help spread the word with Youtube videos, Facebook/Twitter posts, Blogs, online Forums / Groups, and even offline by mentioning Webstore to people you know. Let everyone know to check Webstore first when looking to purchase online.

Send a note to customer support to let us know what you've done to help spread the word.
Include pictures, videos, and/or links to your public post and receive a free gift.
