Default A way to combat this situation ...

A great way to get away from this is to have WCD create categories for your items. Then they can link it to an ebay store or a store that you create yourself.


A visitor goes to your website, then they go the teddy bear section of your website. They can choose from large teddy bears, medium sized teddy bears, and small teddy bears. They click the link on your website and are hyperlinked to your ebay store or separate pages that you run yourself.

This is just an idea Ö that way you can keep your site without having to start over AND have control of the products and services. If they wonít do this, I would get rid of the company and find another one who is more agreeable. No sense wasting anymore money if you arenít going to get what you want.


With our company, if you want to add your own pages and have them linked to your website, we do not charge for that.

What is your website address ? What is the website address of your website designer ?

If we add 100 items to inventory, the charge is $500-$700!

We'd like to start adding our own items to our website and do the shopping cart coding ourselves. The wdc tells us they don't allow this; that all changes are done thru them. They also will not give us the passwords to get into our website to see the html & shopping cart coding.

Is this a standard practice not allowing a website owner access to their own site? We are between a rock & a hard spot! Your comments how to regain control of our website are appreciated!

Wow that is the worst rip off scam I ever heard of. I feel your pain. I highly recomend doing business with yahoo.com or sitebuildit.com
Both are very good but work a little differently.
