We now support interface with leading social network sites to facilitate marketing conversations and development of your social media presence.

Visibility

Reaching shoppers on Trocadero is most directly accomplished by listing items for sale. As most recently added items appear earlier in category pages, listing regularly in diversified categories enhances visibility. Other options are available to supplement visibility. Sticky listings, which appear persistently atop category pages may be purchased. Spotlight advertising is available to promote brand in category pages. Some free options to help with visibility in category pages are available including one free unillustrated Spotlight ad, "press release" announcements and blog entries.

Most recent listings from Enterprise members are used to illustrate our home and entry pages to main categories. This gives Enterprise member more exposure particularly in our recently developed smartphone-friendly pages. We also list Enterprise members ahead of E-Commerce members in alphabetical and category indexes of members. And Enterprise members are listed on the entry page to member indexes.

Other Services

Optional domain name resolution to your Trocadero homepage and catalog is among other services listed from http://www.trocadero.com/services including design work, custom "Signature" sites and more.

We support interface of our commerce features with your Authorize.net gateway account for real time online credit card transactions.

If you don't feel you need an Authorize.net gateway account or do not have your own merchant services account, we also support interface to complete credit card transactions to your PayPal account (shoppers don't need to be a PayPal member to purchase by credit card through PayPal.) We upload a feed daily to Google Shopping for members with items interfaced for real time online transactions. Dedicated commerce support is available to members.
