I did have a CMS site also known as content management site and tried Joomla, loved it but at the time was still undecided on what I wanted a site for and was bringing in traffic for folks looking for freebie graphics but I was not bringing the online shopper who may be looking for a product I sell. I ended the site and replaced it with the simple site regarding my business and now I am ready to add a store where shoppers could find products I offer in a more organized categorized shop friendly. I wanted a site where I could manage the store with a back end login. I started searching Google for online store software for free and came across one I thought would be a great start and cost me nothing. Here is a sneak peek on my site under construction
This has everything I was looking for, a simple clean looking site for guests to shop and have the ability to add text or even there own image for me to create a one of a kind custom product for them, it even allows digital products with download links right after purchase or in my case some will be free for the guests to create their own design and purchase the product and upload their finished work right on the order and item for checkout. I like this because has my sales grow I can let the site grow with addons and themed sites.
I am in the process of the building this site and have not even discovered all the bells and whistles of the power this site Here below is the backend screenshot

I think this site is not thinking in what sellers are looking for in a site. This just assures me why I have not bothered to upgrade to premium account with Bonanza. I believe they would do better if it was an included service with the premium accounts and have it where you upload your image create the burn and then download the finished product without having it remain on the sites servers.
I think this is not the focus that is needed for the site. I am all for trying out new things but never did I see sellers wishing their was a way to remove the background. For those that are concerned about having a white background can still achieve the same effect by going to your local store and buying 2 pieces of white poster board and place on on the bottom and one upright as illustrated below.
This is much more affordable way of creating the same effect and you could also use your own lighting for enhanced images to stand out and with poster board you could even change the background color to something other than white. I think Bonanza needs to focus on getting the site known out there to increase sales and allow the seller to become more profitable and make sense out of paying for premium membership. I guess we will see how long this lasts and if even a viable solution sellers want.
