We are sorry to hear you did not have a good experience with SoleTrader.com, we did indeed moved over to a new platform and there were some initial issues with this, which are as you describe.

We have resolved all the problems you experienced for future users, however, we recognise that we did not in this event give you the level of service you deserve or that we aim for. We apologise sincerely for this.

I can see that we actioned your domain transfer as soon as as it was requested, so with that in mind, it would seem that delay is not from our side - do give us a call straight away if there's some way in which we can help.

We apologise again - this is not our usual or expected levels of service and we have taken steps to ensure this will not re-occur. Do contact us if there is ever anything we can help with.

This is my second website being built by sole trader.com and sadly will be my last, and wish I hadn't bothered . The website is cheap that has to be said but the agro it setting it up is way too stressful, the only smooth transaction that took place was them taking my money !!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/11/2015 by CoffeeEthic (1 review written)

I've loved working with Sole Trader on our Coffee Ethic website. We are a charity running a social enterprise and have not had the expertise to set up a website before. When Sole Trader offered us the chance to set up a website at a price that wouldn't compromise us we jumped at it. Sole Trader have been brilliant! They walked us through the set up with a really simple process and helped design the site the way we wanted it. It was that simple! The pictures were easy to upload, the content is… Read Full Review

“Excellent value website”

Written on: 21/09/2015 by Carpetworld (1 review written)

I am a one man band in a small town on the south coast. Sole Trader.com fulfils my needs as it gives me web recognition at a very low cost. I have been approached in the past for ridiculous amounts of money for services not as comprehensive as this and therefore think this site offers top value. I am not one for sitting in front of a screen tweaking my website so, if I need anything changed, I simply email the team and someone takes care of it for me. What more could you need?

I have put off entering the web based business market as I am not good with all the jargon. However Sole Trader has not only entered me with as little pain as possible but actually made the whole experience a positive one. For those of you like me I would say go on give it a go . It does not cost as much as you think and the web page is well designed and backed up by a great backroom staff. Everyone who has looked at the pages has been impressed and shocked at how little it has cost me. I do… Read Full Review
