Listing Options

BarefootFloor.com knows that people like to have choices - our comparison shopping engine aims to work with retailers to promote their products in a way that works for them. We offer more options than any comparison engine out there! Check out the options below to find your fit:

1. Cost per click (CPC):
This is the most common model amongst shopping comparison engines. Shoppers find your item on our website, browse the description, images, and any other specifics, and compare prices. When the shopper decides on your store to make the purchase, they click on your store name or logo and are redirected to your item page on your website. There, they place the order. We charge you for each click, though rates per click depend on the type of item.

2. Cost per action 1 (CPA):
If you decide on this approach, we will only charge you a 10% commission when a sale is made through our site. Instead of transferring buyers to your site, however, the order will be placed on our website, BarefootFloor.com, using our shopping cart. It will appear as a seamless transaction to the buyer, but we will not charge their credit card, rather we will forward their order to you to handle. Each of your items will appear on its own item page, without direct contact information or link to your store.

Charges to your card, held on file by us, will be made every 15 days for any sales you made during the period. Refunds for any incomplete sales (if out of stock or otherwise unable to complete order) will be made with a $3 fee. It is the retailer's responsibility to provide customer support to customer, return items according to their respective policies and otherwise respond to the client's needs.

3. Cost per action 2 (CPA):
In this alternate version of CPA we will list your items on BarefootFloor.com as described above. However, there is a $.02 cents listing fee per item per month that accompanies a lower commission fee of 5%. It will appear as a seamless transaction to the buyer, but we will not charge their credit card, rather we will forward their order to you to handle. Each of your items will appear on its own item page, without direct contact information or link to your store.

Charges to your card, held on file by us, will be made every 15 days for any sales you made during the period. Refunds for any incomplete sales (if out of stock or otherwise unable to complete order) will be made with a $3 fee. It is the retailer's responsibility to provide customer support to customer, return items according to their respective policies and otherwise respond to the client's needs.

* The minimum monthly payment is $200, which includes the $50 Monthly Fee and $150 in Transaction Fees. If your site sells $3,000 per month, this minimum is automatically met and does not apply. If, however, you site sells less than $3,000 per month, the monthly payment is a minimum of $200.

** The minimum monthly payment is $300, which includes the $50 Monthly Fee and $250 in Transaction Fees. If your site sells $5,000 per month, this minimum is automatically met and does not apply. If, however, you site sells less than $5,000 per month, the monthly payment is a minimum of $300.

We will place your new site on the Barefootfloor.com comparison shopping engine for free, to help drive sales to your site.

Cost per Click

The set up and monthly fees for the cost per click option are the same as described above. However, there is no transaction fee; rather you pay per click to your site. This option may be preferable for merchants that have high average order sizes or have a small niche market with relatively low traffic expectancy. The per click rate varies depending on the product type the site sells - please see rates below - and the same minimum monthly fees apply as in the commission based option.

If you choose this option, we will place your new site on the Barefootfloor.com comparison shopping engine for free.

The following chart is for 20 cents per click:

Total Monthly Cost if you have this many visitors per month: Plan 1 Plan 2
0 $200 $300
100 $200 $300
1000 $250 $300
10,000 $2,050 $2,050

FAQ

  1. What is Barefootfloor.com?
    Barefootfloor.com is an online shopping comparison service that helps merchants reach customers and helps customers find the best deals on products. Barefootfloor.com is not a store – we do not sell anything. We offer a service to connect ready buyers and sellers.
  2. How is Barefootfloor.com different from other comparison engines?
    We work with retailers who already have websites as well as those who do not, providing a space where you can compete. It is easy to list your items and convenient for customers to use.
  3. How do I get my products listed?
    Register with Barefootfloor.com and then follow instructions to create and submit your data feed.
  4. How many sales leads can merchants expect from barefootfloor.com?
    This really depends on the popularity of a merchant's listed items and competitiveness of their prices (shoppers see total price before choosing a merchant to click on). Some products can generate hundreds of clicks for a merchant in a day while others will generate a hundred in a month.
  5. How does Barefootfloor.com bill the merchants?
    Your first two weeks are free! We charge your card $100 upon registration, but do not charge you for clicks for the first two weeks. After that, we start subtracting from the $100 balance.
    CPC merchants can choose the auto-pay option or the one-time payment option. The auto-pay option (recommended) calculates your average cost per day based on a 7 day period and will charge your credit card the minimum amount required to keep your account funded for 10 days, rounded up to multiples of the deposit amount specified. It is possible to set monthly spending limits with this option in the admin panel. The one-time payment option will allow you to keep your products listed on BarefootFloor until your account balance has been depleted. Once your account balance reaches zero, your products will be removed until you authorize another one-time charge.
    CPA merchants are charged using their card, held on file by us, every 15 days for any sales made during the period. Refunds for any incomplete sales (if out of stock or otherwise unable to complete order) will be made with a $3 fee.
  6. What is Barefootfloor.com's cancellation policy?
    Cancel any time, no questions asked.
  7. What is considered a click?
    When a shopper clicks on your online store or links to your website from Barefootfloor.com.
  8. What kinds of shoppers visit Barefootfloor.com and do they really end up buying?
    People who visit Barefootfloor.com tend to be wealthy and educated. Our site gives them the opportunity to learn about their product of interest and compare prices, making them into qualified shoppers ready to buy and giving you higher conversation rates. This type of product centered advertising on comparison shopping sites is considered one of the most effective ways for online retailers to connect with online shoppers.
  9. How quickly do any changes I make to my account take effect?
    Changes you make to your account are effective within 24-48 hours. If you are experiencing problems, please contact us directly at support@barefootfloor.com.
  10. How quickly do my products appear when I sign up?
    Depending on how many products your data feed contains, it can take us a day to a week to review and list your products.
  11. Who do I contact when I have a problem?
    Please consult our tutorials and FAQs or email our customer support at support@barefootfloor.com.
  12. How is your website building service, BarefootfloorStore, different from others'?
    We build, host, maintain, and provide support for websites we make. Unlike other similar services, we actually build your website for you, instead of leaving you to figure out templates and programs. We also have two models to pick from, a commission based model and a pay per click model, so you can pick what is most appropriate for your business.
  13. What kind of website will it be?
    It will be a shopping cart website, with product listings and an online store. You will be able to personalize our templates by speaking to one of our site builders. You are responsible for supplying your product information for the site; you can find detailed instructions on how to create the data feed here. The site will be searchable, easy to navigate, attractive, and, most importantly, functional.
