StoreStacker Review

October 28, 2008 Posted by Tyler Cruz

The following is a paid review and is completely of my own opinion and is not influenced by being paid. If you’re interested in having me review your site or product, please view my advertising page.

StoreStacker.com is an affiliate niche store builder which allows users to create fully-fledged websites, or stores, with automated content and affiliate products within minutes.

Scott, from StoreStacker, told me that they just launched close to 6-months ago but have already grown to over 2,200 customers.

The StoreStacker product works like similar tools of it’s kind, the most notable one being BuildANicheStore, or BANS. However, BANS is limited to promoting eBay listed products only. Unlike BANS, StoreStacker essentially ‘stacks’ a variety of different affiliate programs, allowing you to promote products from not only eBay, but other sources such as Amazon and ClickBank as well.

In addition, StoreStacker is reportedly the only niche store building tool of it’s kind that allows you to easily integrate YouTube videos and RSS feeds into your store for supplemental content.

StoreStacker’s main use comes in the basic fact that it will create a complete affiliate site for the user, including automatically updated niche or topic related content.

It comes with 12 pre-built templates which are customizable to allow you to create a unique and relevantly designed store (you would probably want to design a site promoting digital cameras differently than a site promoting women’s makeup, for example).

Watch my screencast video review of StoreStacker for more information below:

The best part of StoreStacker, in my opinion, is that once you create your store (which takes between 5-10 minutes), all the products, content and videos update automatically.

What makes StoreStacker different from the other store-generating tools is that it appears to be the only one which integrates other affiliate product sources other than just eBay.

Here are a few more features of StoreStacker:

  • Creates search engine friendly stores with keyword infused URLs, keyword tags and related product listings on each page, and Google Sitemaps are automatically created. In addition, all affiliate links are embedded and are automatically cloaked.
  • Once purchased, users can use StoreStacker on as many sites and stores as they want with their one license.
  • CommissionJunction integration is reportedly on the way within the next month or two.
  • Includes 12 templates, user manuals, video tutorials and on-call E-mail support.

The Price

StoreStacker costs $97 for the basic version. However, for additional features and product integration you will need to purchase additional modules, or plugins, which are priced at $25 each.

The eBay, Amazon, and YouTube plugins are included with the core purchase at $97, but the additional plugins such as ClickBank and RSS will cost you an extra $25 each.

Conclusion

As concluded in my screencast review above, StoreStacker can save you a lot of hassle and time in launching a store (or 50 stores), and the automatically updated content is priceless.

But what StoreStacker obviously won’t do is automatically bring in traffic. Therefore, a tool like StoreStacker is most beneficial, in my opinion, to PPC affiliate marketers or anyone who knows how to generate relevant traffic as StoreStacker will take care of all the website and product generation for you.

    I think I will have to see more before coughing up money for stores. Amazon has stores for affiliates and Pepperjam just rolled out something too.

    • Ryan McLean says:

      Yea me too. For the price of this I’d rather spend 10-15 minutes finding the products myself off of ebay and amazon. But if you were a VERY busy person and that 15 minutes meant losing $1000 in profits, I guess this is worth the price.

      • Ryan

        It takes a lot longer then 10 to 15 minuets to find products, trust me and considering the software imports hundreds to thousands of products in one shot related to your keywords….if you think you can do that yourself…..your a better man then anyone else online.

  2. Sammier says:

    Tyler you PIMP, ranking in cash from these reviews, Good work.

  3. Paintball says:

    I just don’t know if this could beat a blog with ebay listings in it (via phpbay). Sure it looks clean, but i think users find more value in a well written post about a product than an affiliate store. Stores that link out to products elsewhere just aren’t seen as stores to the visitor, blogs that provide a review and link to products on the other hand are just helpful IMHO. I’d consider amazon astore’s more of a store since they have a cart feature, plus its free.

    Its nice how it automates everything, maybe if you found extremely small niches this would be worth it. Dominating larger niches would seem almost impossible unless you were able to integrate this with a blog and add unique content. I’ve always felt that aggregating content is useless if you do not put your personal touch on it.

    While this gives BANS a run for its money it still does not compare to the flexibility of phpbay.

  4. Chris says:

    I thought Google had started de-indexing BANS sites. Who’s the say it won’t happen to these StoreStacker sites as well?

  5. Andrei Buiu says:

    Tyler, please try to find more exciting post titles, because I don’t wanna read any more reviews.

  6. Now a days all top players of internet are writing paid reviews.

  7. Hey Tyler

    I started using store stacker just over a week ago and here is is a link to my post about. In my post I have a video tutorial showing how you can use Store Stacker with a wordpress blog.

    Check it out here

    http://www.feedflare.ca/niche-stores/build-a-niche-store-with-store-stacker

    Here is the link to a store I built on my own wordpress blog

    http://www.feedflare.ca/marketing-ebooks/

    Also, if you want to see one template of a store I built that is not part of a wordpress blog you can visit this site

    http://www.nascarracinggames.net

    Now regarding the CSS issue you brought up you can work with it and do what ever you want to with the theme your using. You can replace images, and customs headers and logo’s, pretty much what ever you want to do with it, you can.

    Commission Junction has not been added yet as a plug in but they are coming. Also Scott told me yesterday that The Pepperjam Network is in the works to be added as well and if you are an affiliate of Pepperjam you know they have a ton of great advertisers with lots of great products you can market that are in high demand.

    Store Stacker is for anyone really Tyler, not just PPC’ers. The trick to building any website is you have to research your product first and find the best keywords you can before you register a name and incorporate those keywords into the name of the site. Once you do that ranking your site is fairly simple. Nascar Racing Games (my site above) is all ready on page one in Google out of over 3 million indexed pages. The site is a week old and I am all ready dropping cookies.

    The smartest way to work with Store Stacker to be 100% honest is to buy the script and build as many stores as you can. Try for one or two a week. IS you do this for a few months your going to be making some great money, nothing huge but if your looking to get into PPC, this method could be the means that gives you your budget to start doing it.

  8. Tyler, I am trying to leave a comment but its not going in. One of my comments went through but the other is not showing up. Is it help for Mod?

  9. MMO gold says:

    Looks like a cool tool. Its a little out of my budget right now, but thanks for the info.

  10. Sohail says:

    I would like to see less paid posts. everybody is doing them so be a bit different and do them as 1 or 2 a month ;)

    • So because you don;t like reading paid reviews Tyler should lose money?

      Here’s a tip from a pro – and all pro’s say this, if you don’t like paid reviews “Don’t read them”

      • Sohail says:

        I said I would “LIKE”…………..just telling him what i feel. I think pro bloggers have guts to care what their readers like or dislike (Its up to a blogger to decide what he will write about but its not bad if somebody is telling you something you don’t like yourself )…I didn’t DEMAND anything :) be happy

  11. Problogineer says:

    looks good…
    looks better than BANS and phpbay pro… lets see for more reviews.

  12. Nancy says:

    It’s interesting. However, where are products from? How can I make money via storestacker.

  13. Ace says:

  14. Oh, please … don’t be such a troll by slagging (insulting) off a hard working blogger, at least Colin had the guts to link his blog. … something wtf clearly failed to do.. but then if you don’t have b*lls, I guess you don’t want people to know…

    Am i right?
