Webstore Reviews – Is Webstore.com a Scam?





The Webstore.com review shows that this is kind of unique auction site in that there are no buyer and no seller fees, which confused me initially because, well how does the site make money, or at the very least pay for the administration of the site.  I began my investigation into this phenomenon of not charging anyone any fees with the FAQ page, which was not very helpful, but I did find my answer. Advertisements, sponsor ads, banner ads all supported this website.

Well, I thought it great that you did not have to pay fees of any kind as a buyer and even as a seller you did not have to pay any premiums. It is a great benefit not to have to pay anything extra.


I started browsing around to see if there were any deals that I might be interested in bidding on, but there wasn’t. Most of the items were nothing that I was interested in, a lot of collectibles and used items.


The contacts page was a bit difficult to navigate. When I click on “contact us” I personally like to see the contacts listed, I don’t want to see more links to click on to get contact information.


There was a lot of ads on the site, and on a couple of occasions I inadvertently clicked on one and was redirected of course to another site, than had to make my way back to Webstore.com after dealing with pop ups and questions about navigating away from the page.


It’s a great idea not to charge fees to anyone to buy or sell but I think I might want to pay a bit of money not to have to deal with all the ads. It was just too overwhelming with all the ads popping up all over the place it was completely distracting.  It was difficult to concentrate on what I was looking for. 


Most of the items that I caught a glimpse of on Webstore were collectibles, like stamps and coins. There were categories for clothes, cars (which were almost exclusively car parts), electronics and other categories you would expect to see on an auction site.



If you can deal with the ads, and have an e store this would be a great place to sell your wares, although unlike eBay the webstore.com does not provide any warranty or any protections, so you are basically on your own when it comes to collections. The deal is strictly between you and the person you are doing business with. If you do business smartly than it should be fine. Things like knowing what you are buying and who you are buying from is a bit difficult on this site and because there is no buyer or seller protection you may find yourself in a world of hurt if you win something and it arrives and is not what you expected. It may be a bit difficult to get your money back.

The Webstore.com review shows that this is a viable site and is not a scam, however not as good as Auction Resource.

Webstore.com Review – Is Webstore.com a Scam?  


The Webstore review shows that this site is a great idea. It is an online market place where people can buy and sell their items fee free! If it works it is a perfect way to shop and save money online and to sell your items without having to worry about paying ebay type fees. 


The question than that begs to be asked is does it work? Well that all depends on who you ask. For all intents and purposes this idea should take off like a rocket, so why after almost two years has it no? The answer is simple; online security. 


There is a lot of talk in the media about online security and how important it is to know who you are doing business with to avoid being ripped off.  Of course using Ebay or one of the other big name marketplaces does provide you with a certain amount of security. Webstore.com does not really do a good job in the security department. 


No Verification Necessary 


One of the biggest down points to webstore.com is that the sellers do not have to be verified they can choose to be verified. This can be a great opportunity for sellers to jump right in and start selling but it can also be a great way for thieves to start stealing from you. 


Of course you can avoid the potential to be ripped off by only buying from verified sellers. This will seriously limit your options if you choose to only buy from verified sellers but it will also keep you a lot safer. 


The Fees 


The Webstore.com review shows that there are some optional fees that you will probably wind up paying if you want to sell anything on webstore.com. Fees for making your ad bold and making it larger things that if you choose will make your ad more noticeable to potential buyers. 


How does the website make money if they do not charge any fees? This seems like a reasonable question after all every one wants to make a buck! The website generates income through advertising. Initially I thought that the ads would make me crazy but honestly they are not really even noticeable. 


The Inventory 


I was not very impressed by the inventory on this site. There were a lot of collectibles (think coins not jewelry). I just did not really find anything that I would buy but that does not mean that you wont. The up side of things is that you can browse for free and you can buy an item without costly fees being tacked on.

Overall, the Webstore review shows that this is a legit site and is not a scam, although a more popular choice for finding a deal online seems to be AuctionResource.org.
