Brad Sucks Digital Download Store is a free, easy-to-install Web storefront

Canadian Brad Turcotte, AKA Brad Sucks, makes music. In fact, he makes open source music, and he lets people download the source files of his songs for free and remix them into all sorts of weird creations. Given his open source musical model, it should come as no surprise to you that Brad is a nerd. And as a nerd, he scratched his own itch and created the Brad Sucks Digital Download Store. The...

Use The Tracktor to track Amazon price shifts

The Tracktor is a very simple website, letting you view the Amazon price history for any product on a neat (if small) graph, and set custom email alerts for when the price (used or new) reaches or drops below a certain threshold. The particular graph you see on the screenshot is for an MS Natural 4000 keyboard. That's a "lifetime" graph for the product -- I can't believe someone was trying to...

Manpacks offers automatic delivery of clean undies to helpless men

OK, bear with me on this one. No, underwear isn't something you can download. Well, maybe from vending machines in Japan, but you know what I mean... But as a man who knows how to do little things like, say, wash my own clothes and go shopping, I'm a little offended by the idea behind Manpacks. Sign up, fork over your credit card info, and you'll never have to worry about remembering to buy...

Avoid pesky shipping costs with Free Shipping On

Has this ever happened to you? You run out of ink, paper, good books to read, or something else, so you go online to order replacement as soon as humanly possible. You find what you need for a good price, add it to your cart, and then when you hit the checkout button the shipping charges hit you like a 2 ton heavy thing. The truth is while many sites like Amazon promise free shipping on orders...

Social Networking and Ecommerce

Does your business have a Facebook page? MySpace? Chances are you have heard about each but chances are also that if you're a small business owner, you haven't had time to figure out how to get yours or worse, what to do with it. Heck, you don't even have a blog yet, do you? You're way out of the loop and I won't even mention Twitter or Jaiku. (Not yet.) But they're coming. The 2008 Presidential...

$10 free from Google Checkout - which stores are participating?

Awhile back we reported that Google is really trying to push its Google Checkout payment processing service by offering a $10 coupon to everyone who signs up. They're still offering the coupon, and they've even dropped the if-you-spend-$30-or-more requirement, and today I decided to bite the bullet and grab my sweet, sweet coupon. But I was a little annoyed that Google doesn't tell you up front,...

Try Microsoft Commerce Server 2006 Beta

Feel the need to custom code your own e-commerce site to rival giant Amazon? Well maybe you can try it out using Microsoft's "free" Commerce Server 2006. Of course, it isn't free, it's a beta version you can test and help MS at the same time. As usual, you'll have to be approved before you can participate, but if you've ever considered working in the "big leagues," this is...
