USpace Virtual Storefronts FAQ
Yes. By the time you pay USpace the first dollar from your small business budget, we want you to be 110% certain our service is right for your business.
We also want virtual storefront sales right in front of you, on your balance sheet, to show you the value USpace has to your business.
This means we’re giving you 90 days before we start your subscription, which will be under $50 a month and include everything you need to do sales.
The only fee you will incur is the standard credit card charge we incur for the processing of a sale, and that is only when you sell something on USpace.
For every small business serving local retail goods and services to the public, there are never any commission fees and there is no limit to the number of transactions your business can conduct from your virtual storefront.
You simply pay USpace a flat monthly ‘rental’ rate to run your storefront and gain access to the global base of USpace public members, who can visit your business virtually and make a purchase securely whenever they want.
We know what running a small business is like, and that is exactly why we designed USpace to be a low cost service that has a fixed cost you can budget for easily no matter the season.
Here’s another fun fact you’re going to love: USpace has no customer ratings for your business. Period.
Any small business with retail sales to the public in the United States and US territories is eligible to open a Virtual Storefront for business on USpace.
