I like Buy.com, but disagree completely with this article (ahem, press release). Their site does not have “quick-loading pages” nor is their “buying process speedy.” Their success is proving to be their downfall, since their technology does not seem to scale well. Logging into an existing account during peak business hours is next to impossible due to overloaded servers. Buy.com is successful for one reason only: low prices and free shipping. To think otherwise is to be fooling yourself.
