    Building a niche store, what would be better to do, use the BANS software or use wordpress w/ the phpbay plugin? I have a very knowledge person who might blog about the products and help generate interest, any thoughts? Thanks

    wordpress. ESPECIALLY if you will be adding info and not having your run of the mill generic BANS site.

    Also check out bayrss (pretty much the same idea as phpbay):

    http://dotdriven.com/index.php/12/affiliate-marketing-101-bootstrappin-myself/

    Both are great since it's so easy to set up and add other types of content and automate it if you want.

    BANS has a pretty decent setup and it looks like the next version will be even better but at more than twice as much it doesn't seem worth it. I'll probably end up getting it just to try it out but so far I am liking bayrss quite a bit.

    i actually dl'd all the bans software from another site, tried it and didnt care for it at all, i think wordpress is awesome for this type of store, especially since I have someone who is going to write articles as well....can someone tell me though

    i want the actual blog to be on a page other than the first, how can i "post" on pages other than the front page?

    i have purchased both phpbayPro and BANS and while the bans sites have only been up for like 3 weeks, the phpbay pro ads still pull more revenue. The combination of good content on a blog and then 1-3 auctions at the bottom of each post works very well. I do it on www.cloverfieldnews.com . and those ebay ads made a decent amount in january.
