No Sales Fee for JimdoBusiness

First of all, thank you for your comments and feedback about the new online store!


We are always really happy to hear from you… when it's praise we're overjoyed but we also appreciate your constructive criticism and improvement suggestions. There have been some questions and concerns about the sales fee, so we've been thinking about how we could make this work while taking your comments into consideration.The decision we've come to:

JimdoBusiness won't have a sales fee!

We definitely understand that you didn't like the idea of having to pay a sales fee after June 30th, even if you have Jimdo's top package. Based on your feedback and our discussions, we decided exempt JimdoBusiness. The sales fee is staying for JimdoFree and JimdoPro.

Just so there aren't any misunderstandings - how much, starting when, why - here's a run-down:

  • We're waiving the sales fees (for JimdoFree and JimdoPro) through June 30, 2010: this means anything you sell in your store between now and June 30th is sales-fee-free!
  • The sales fee starts on July 1, and it's only when you actually sell something in your store. Unlike other online stores, we don't charge you for adding items. So there's no risk!
  • If you don't use the store, then don't worry: there are absolutely no charges or fees.
  • Sales fees are pretty standard for online stores and ecommerce solutions. We've reviewed what's available, and we still think that we're one of the best deals out there.
  • As much as we would love for Jimdo to be completely free all the time, it's just not feasible. The online store function is the result of several months of hard work by our development team, and hard work that continues, since we'll be constantly improving and updating the store.


As always, thanks for reading, and we hope you're as happy as we are that JimdoBusiness will stay sales fee free!

    Oh, I thought that you do need to press a publish button or a similar button in order for the site to be public. Thanks for proving me wrong :)
