With the thousands of e-commerce sites on the Internet, why should you buy from us? Here are a few reasons you might want to consider:
Help Support ProvideYourOwn
ProvideYourOwn publishes comprehensive articles on DIY subjects to help you in your quest for independence from controlling corporations. These articles are offered free of charge to everyone. By purchasing from our store you provide the material support necessary to maintain this site and continue publishing these articles.
Support Open Source Hardware and Software
Everything on this site and store is Open Source. That means that nothing is hidden, secret or protected. There isn’t even a copyright or trademark. You can freely access, copy, modify, republish, and sell derivative work. Secrets, copyrights and patents are holding back those things which can benefit society and are done for the sole purpose of protecting large corporations.
We care about the little guy. We care about you. Purchasing products from us empowers you to do the same.
Low Pricing & Shipping
We know that high prices sometimes prevent people from getting the stuff they need. Ditto for high shipping prices. We aren’t trying to make big bucks off you or anyone else. We have carefully priced our goods as low as possible so that more people can afford them. In some cases, we charge significantly less than popular suppliers. We believe in charging enough to maintain this site and its outreach, but aren’t looking to get rich. Life is more than money. We all need enough money to live, but striving to get rich isn’t the means to having a rich, purposeful life.
Help Expand ProvideYourOwn
If you share our mission, help us to expand and reach even more people. As we increase our revenue, we can solicit helpful articles from experts in various subjects. We can also do more to expand our reach. Sometimes it is hard to find useful information. Even if we have that information, getting the word out so people can find it is difficult. Increased financial resources can help to get that word out. You can help us to grow.
Support Families and Small Business
Big corporations don’t create that many jobs. Small businesses do. We want to create jobs. We want to support regular families. Your purchases will help us do exactly that.
We care about what you think and feel. We want to serve you. If you have a problem, we want to resolve it to your satisfaction. If there is a product we don’t offer, let us know and we’ll try to add it. Unlike most businesses, we aren’t so big that your input falls on deaf ears. As we grow, we promise to continue to listen and adjust to meet your needs.
