Hi, site looks very incomplete....

It would be good if you could you add a logo or other image for your storefront. And definitely need to add alot more products. Umm... Perhaps you can write longer text for the "About", "Terms", and "Contact" list. A FAQ would be useful for any potential customer. Hope this helps! Very Happy

First finish your store.
You need an image where your home page shows Your Image Here

You have a bunch of categories that say the same thing - delete them
as well as categories with nothing in them.
You don't need a category for each individual item.
Categories called - "everything" are worthless


ADD some FAQ's


Descriptions
Quote:
NEAR MINT
SHIPPED IN PENNY SLEEVE AND TOP LOADER

that description is worthless - it don't even tell what you are selling.
At the bear minium copy your title, even that isn't going to help you be found much.
A good description has all the keywords in it at least twice.
Quote:
nice pink pearl earrings and necklace

How long is the necklace? What type of earrings, pierced? Clip on? Dangling? Post?

Describe your items as if you are telling someone what it is and looks like that can not see or feel it.

Shipping -
You ship to Canada and US Mainland only- why not Alaska and Hawaii??

You have a category on the front page with a necklace in the picture...but then you put the necklace in a category called earrings and necklace, and nothing in the jewelry category. It's very confusing. If you don't have a lot of jewelry to sell, just put it all in the jewelry category.

Why are you opening a store? From your prices you aren't expecting to make any money. I saw item after item for 10 cents, 25 cents and 50 cents. Only a handful of items cost more than $1.00.

Most people will pay with Paypal because money orders and stamps cost money and who is going to spend more for a money order and stamp than the cost of the item.

Paypal takes .30 plus 3% of the total including shipping. That will leave you in the hole before you start. You have to buy the sleeves and envelopes for mailing. DVDs have to ship in padded envelopes and they aren't free.

Maybe you need to rethink what you are selling or rethink your prices. If your cards are only worth 10 cents, have a yard sale. Don't go in the red in order to have a store online.

That's because you are putting the image where it says "upload logo" which is the location at the top.
See how to do the image and logo in this link: http://www.ecrater.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2097

Make sure your store name can easily be read on your logo. How else would people know where they are and who you are. It appears on every page on your site and it is the easiest way to advertise.

You are supposed to have the text in your image. Use a image editor to add it to the photo. Or use an online logo maker like www.cooltext.com

for more info on images and logos see:

The text must be added to your logo before it is uploaded. You can't upload the logo and then the text. There are people here who will make one for you if you search for them. As is I can't tell what your logo is least of all the name of your store.
