To truly understand, GlobalLinker’s ecommerce platform and what all it offers, it’s important to go back and look at the history of ecommerce. Did you know the idea of ecommerce was cemented when English inventor Michael Aldrich in 1979 connected a modified TV to a transaction processing computer using his telephone line? Although it’s nothing as the ecommerce we know today, it became the foundation of ecommerce.
Now 40 years on, GlobalLinker’s ecommerce platform offers a revolutionary way to do business. It is powerful tool for SMEs, helping them to expand their sales opportunities, beyond their geographical reach.
The biggest difference between GlobalLinker’s ecommerce platform and the others is in the commercials. While even a basic Shopify package has a monthly fee, GlobalLinker’s e-store platform with all its features is completely free to use.
Signing up on GlobalLinker’s ecommerce platform gives you a feature packed ecommerce website with:
- Free ecommerce website to help you sell online

The BIG financial difference
GlobalLinker’s ecommerce platform like many other ecommerce platforms, including Shopify, allows merchants to create their online store. The biggest difference between GlobalLinker’s ecommerce platform and the others is in the commercials. While even a basic Shopify package has a monthly fee, GlobalLinker’s e-store platform with all its features is completely free to use.
For example, Shopify’s plans start somewhere from $29 for and can go up to $2000 for advanced features. Except for the premium plans, Shopify also charges transaction fee (2% - 0.5% of the sale value) for every on sales you make. This is in addition to the payment gateway fees that may be charged to you.
In contrast to this, GlobalLinker’s e-store platform offers access to all its features absolutely free as part of our offering! There is no commission on your transactions.

So, there you have it!

Take our advice, use the monthly fees and transaction fees that you would pay other ecommerce platforms to build your own brand.
