Mom, why don't you sell them in lots. At your prices you could sell them by the dozen to flea marketers or other sellers who then have the leeway to double the prices or more. You could probably fit a dozen items in a small flat rate box and ship for a low combined shipping price.

This is my next step to sell in lots or bulk. I just wantd to try to sell them this way first. But I haven't had them on very long. Just seems strange to me that when I sold them at the regular prices I sold at least 10 to 30 a day. On eCrater....none.....seems so strange to me. I just can't figure out why...... I keep thinking it is something I am not doing. But I don't think that is it. I just feel like for some reason they are not being seen as well as other website..maybe??

This has been a horrendous sales summer for many of us. I have had 50% off sales on some categories but I've now put the prices back up. No interest whatsoever.

I've had a lot of hits on every product but not as many sales. I know I don't have that many different kinds of cellphone model choices but I try to get the peoples prospective brlefore I add more items. I've posted questions about what cellphone accessories people need and want, what's the popular cellphones, etc. But I haven't had many responses. How can I up the sales along with the hits.

Your welcome page isn't very welcoming. Skip the sales stuff, instead be hospitable and tell what is in your store. You have nothing in your 'about' me page. Your terms page has misspellings and not a lot of info--needs phrased differently.

I would also suggest that you repeat in your actual listing what these items are and what they are for. I don't have a cellphone so I can't give guidance that way, but your home page is a huge turn off especially as part of the script isn't showing completely.

You have google ads in your listings because your photos are too small. This means a buyer can't really see the items you are selling. Ergo they will buy from someone with a viewable picture.

I sell all HANDMADE PRODUCTS; soap, body butter, body scrubs, facial treatments.

I took time to make sure I give as much information as possible, I got a lot of hits with no sell, I don't know if my store is lacking something that I dont know. My products are less than $10 what's going on?

I need some feedback;

Bellahoney... You have 10 items listed. In the whole scheme of on line selling that isn't even a microscopic drop in a bucket. If someone sees your stuff but doesn't like any of your available flavors or scents then they will go elsewhere. I would think you need more variety.

Also, although I have never gotten to go to a spa, by conception of them is of a luxurious, beautiful place. You need to show those soaps wrapped up looking special and not as a hard chunk of gray stuff (by the way one of your whipped butters has a picture of a lump of something not identified). No problem with showing what the soap looks like unwrapped, but do show what the customers is going to get. How do you wrap them and how do you make them look special? People willing to buy this type of stuff are willing to pay more anyhow than those of us that use cheap store soap. Charge enough to cover great packaging. I do think though the biggest problem is just a total lack of product, there isn't enough to pull buyers in.

Plus don't forget that promoting yourself is a huge part of selling at ecrater.

I agree with Moonwishes Bellahoney. 10 items is nothing. If you sell items in groups of 3, make additional listings of groups of 1, 2, soap by the dozen. Offer an assortment: 1 soap, 1 facial, 1 cream in one package.

Your photos are very clear but not appealing. Those jars of stuff look like week old guacamole. The soap...do you really sell it in those jagged broken off chunks? If not show it nicely cut and trimmed with a packaged one in the background.

90% of beauty/spa products is psychological. Relax, pamper yourself, make yourself beautiful. I get a utilitarian feeling from your store.

How do you see the ads because when I go to it I don't see any. How can I get them off?

You have to upload different photos. They must be at lease 250 pixels.

You won't see the ads if you are in admin. You only see them as an outsider would see them.

Those Zappos ads aren't your store. Of course you might not see Zappos ads. I do because I was looking for something there last night and Google remembers and shoots me not only Zappos but the items I was looking at.

They aren't on every item; only some have small photos. The Mickey Mouse charm is one that has ads in it. If you can resize your photo to make it larger and upload it again to replace the small one, the ads should disappear.
