Regrettably my husband fell victim to the "high pressure" tactics of Stores Online. Having had heart surgery a few years ago and working as a mechanic all his life, he was looking for a "less physical" type job. He was very hopeful of doing well with this new venture but soon realized he was unable to keep up with the 30 minute instruction over the phone and piles of reading from the manuals. Obviously he could not work at his regular job and give Stores Online his full attention. The thirty minute phone calls were just twice a week but so full of information it was difficult to digest in such a short time frame.

My husband admits he should have researched this company more beforehand and not been so eager to succumb to their demands. In fact he is reluctant to discuss it and feels totally responsible for making such a foolish mistake.

What disturbs me is the pressure that Stores Online placed on him to invest such a large amount of money into the business- in our case it was $6,000 to begin and later wanted $9,000 more.

I don't earn that much in a year's time! Needless to say we had to take out a loan to pay for it.

I am writing this not only to voice my opinion but hopeful that no one else falls prey to this absurd way of doing business.

If this company is legitimate, they should really rethink their tactics but if they are just out to get a fast buck from trusting individuals I doubt they will survive long and RIGHTLY so!

Plenty of "Surplus" Storesonline Sites 4Sale

AUTHOR: Etwana - (U.S.A.)

Steve:

If you're as wildly successful with Storesonline as you claim to be, why not post your sites up here as proof of that success?

And if you're so interested in buying unused "surplus" sites from other SOL customers, I'm sure that there are any number of RipOffReport readers who would gladly sell you theirs (as indicated by Gary above).

In case your demand for these wonderful storefront packages exceeds the supply on this site, I invite to visit Ebay which is currently hosting two auctions of Storesonline storefronts.

If you require still more sites to fuel your wildly successful business, visit the Storesonline Merchants Forum where there are currently 10 more sites for sale.

After you've gobbled up all of this inventory, a google search will reveal still more 'superfluous' sites for sale by happy SOL merchants from all over the world.

But, before you go too crazy, why don't you start by taking Gary up on his generous offer? It's a win/win. Gary gets a refund, and you get three additional high quality SOL storefronts to add to your burgeoning online empire.

Anyone else want to sell their sites to Steve? He's buying!!

I don't believe a word of what you said - Storesonline are crooks

AUTHOR: Gary - (Australia)

I agree with Terry from Oklahoma, USA and Wally from Australia.

"Steve" from Montana - I DO NOT believe a word you say. Hey Stevo, if you want three more useless Storesonline "licences" you can buy mine off me. Go on. I challenge you!

You are just another Storesonline sychophantic monkey. Why do you bother writing such useless rubbish? We can all see straight through you.

Lies, lies and d**n lies!

Storesonline - made stocklemon.com public notice, every must read - http://www.stocklemon.com/articles/03_18_05.html

AUTHOR: Fyi - (U.S.A.)

iMergent, Net Gateway, StoresOnline, look at the BBB report to see all the names StoresOnline had previously used.

copy & paste this into your address bar and read --http://www.stocklemon.com/articles/03_18_05.html

StoresOnline, Professional Marketing Inc/Interantional (PMI) rip-offs.

There are so many business gimmick titles and names one can search to find PMI in the middle of almost all of them. iMergent, StoresOnline, Net Gateway, Auctions for Income, Internet Treasure Chest, plus many, many more.

You are soooo NOT reputable that you made it in the online public notices of StockLemon.com.

Sadly they have survived long, by changing names and locaitons - the only state to get them to pay consumers back is the state of CA. I've read others are in pursuit but have not seen documentation to anything final.

Read this one: BBB alerts
http://www.spokane.bbb.org/alerts/alerts.html?newsid=421&newstype=1

They fail to let folks know the real deal PRIOR to finalizing sales. SAD - SAD - SAD, they continue to rip-off as many as possible to fill their own greedy pockets.

Steve, we are sick of idiots like you trying to defend the indefensible. Give us your URLs that are so successful - why is it that noone will publish their great web addresses where they make all this money.

Why have the Australian courts made it compulsory for any stores on line 'seminar' to tell every one in attendance that they(stores on line) are under investigation by the ACCC?

If your local web developers were dearer than SOS then you must have given them the wrong specification. All you had to tell them was that you wanted an e-commerce site that didn't work, looked crappy and cost a heap of money and that they could also continue to charge you for a truckload of extras that also would do nothing except line the pockets of Stores on Line and their entourage.
Thanks for the laugh Steve - no amount of hard work could make a broken system that was never designed to work, make you any money. Register a dot com domain name for $8.95 a year and have it hosted for $10 per year and you have more than what you will get by paying thousands to stores on line! Earn enough on a stores on line dropshipping website to replace 2 salaries - nice one Steve - my sides are splitting!!!

Go Stores Online

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

I am a stores online merchant. Have never had a complaint about them at all. Great product, great service. They really are a good company offering an easier solution to having an online business, versus building your own website from scratch. Website creation services locally were 3 times what I paid for three web sites with stores online. I will admit that it did take quite a while for us to learn what we had to learn to be as successful as we are today. My wife & I both work full time jobs & run our websites. We have been online for 18 months & doing well enough to quit our jobs to run our online business' full time this coming spring. Nothing is free, nothing is easy. Anything worth while is going to take alot of work & time to build or make successful. Stores Online offers an "easier" sollution to people wanting to get into the online business world. They make no promise of how successful you will be. Like I mentioned earlier, if you really want something you have to do what you have to do. If that means working 12 hours a day to be more successful & reach that point in your life that you wish to get to. I worked 4 to 6 hours a day after my daytime job for two years to build our business' to where they are now. Let me tell you it was well worth the sacrifices we made. Sense all of you can't get your money back, I would spend more time utilizing what you paid for instead of writing complaints about what you think. Stores Online is not the magic wand that will make you successful. Your hard work & persistence is the only way to achieve that. If anybody wants to sell Stores Online website packages to get some of there money back I am buying. I could use a few more websites.
