Store It is a notion that can be used in different ways. The concept may refer to the structure formed by sticks and skins or fabrics which is used as shelter or temporary accommodation. In this sense, a store is what in several Latin American countries is known as tent .
For example: “When I was little, I loved going to the country with my grandfather and sleeping in a tent under the stars”, “We had to spend the night in a store since we ran out of gas”, “The sun is starting to hit hard, so I prefer to stay in the store”.
The store idea is also used to name the Commerce where different types of products are offered: “I go to the store to buy flour and then I will prepare dinner”, “We were touring several stores but we didn't find anything interesting to buy from Uncle Luis for his birthday”, “Tomorrow they will open a wholesale food store”.
Usually in one store there is one or more people They are dedicated to offer the items. These individuals work behind a counter that separate products from potential buyers. There are, however, different types of stores: in the self-service stores For example, customers choose products, take them and take them to the place of payment.
A Mall o shopping center is an establishment that houses many stores. The store that, due to the popularity of its brand or its importance, manages to attract the public to the site, is called anchor store .
The Department stores On the other hand, they are those that sell a wide range of products , allowing people to meet various consumption needs.
We must not forget the Online store , one of the main sources of income in Internet worldwide, in which it is possible to sell and buy virtually any kind of product or service. In the first place, it is important to distinguish between those stores that allow all its users to publish offers (within which eBay stands out without a doubt) and those that impose certain restrictions (such as being Steam).
eBay It was one of the first online stores, founded in 1995 and with almost unparalleled success almost everywhere in the world. Its headquarters are located in California, United States, and allows anyone buy and sell very easily . One of the characteristics that differentiate eBay from most regional online classified stores is the charge of a fee for sale done; While eBay also offers a section for these types of ads, where fees do not apply, its strength is the auction and Buy it already! , which exponentially increase the probabilities of sale.
The auction is the transaction which more sellers choose, since it usually has better results. Simply put, we must determine the initial price (it is recommended that it be as low as possible) and the duration of the announcement; until the last second, interested users must make offers, and the largest of them at the time of closing is the winner. In option Buy it already! On the other hand, we must set a price and wait for someone to buy the product; However, we can also offer users the possibility of offering us a lower price, which we must evaluate to accept or reject it.
Steam It is a broader platform, which includes since 2008 an online store to buy PC games in digital format . At present it is the preferred objective of most players, since it offers all kinds of services complementary that make the experience unmatched: from its community, which blends perfectly with each game, to the comforts to configure and optimize each game, Steam is the undisputed leader in its field.
