Ed Sturrock, Stefan Barlow and Charlie Cooper established AmeriCommerce in 2005. Whether you are looking to open one ecommerce outlet or multiple, the company has the tools to get your started selling your goods.

The company powers more than 5,000 retailers, which compared with other competitors such as Bigcommerce or Shopify this seems like a very small number. However, I still feel the company has something to offer for those looking to start their own online store.
As I mentioned a couple days ago, I’m not a big fan of most ecommerce review sites out there. But there are a couple good ones, one of which is by ecommerce and surfing legend Andrew Bleakley.

We also share a lot of opinions… we both love Shopify and Bigcommerce and really, really hate OS Commerce. Anyways, late last year Andrew Bleakley was interviewed on a new site called Ecommerce Fuel, and I thought it would be interesting to our readers so I’m going to share it with you:
