I' ll be more than glad to offer a special discount to our fellow sellers on eCrater and I thought it could become a nice "courtesy" practice between ourselves.
I' d like to hear from you what do you think about it.

I have in mind a 10-20% discount on the listed price to eCrater owners with some gentleman agreement rules to avoid misuse.

I' m selling top quality sewing thread and there are many eCrater stores who could use good thread for their crafts at the best price in the market.
Punchneedle is the hot craft of the moment.
I need to mention that I also can sell wholesale to businesses that can provide me with a tax number from their State and place an initial minimum order of $50.00.

Please let me know your opinion, suggestions on the best way to implement the idea (before the Holidays), thanks

That sounds great i have no problems with a discount to the great folks at ecrater. Everyone is so helpful here and that would be a good way to give back to the "community". We would just need to find out how to do this in a way other than refunding the difference. Which seems like the only way so far. Since anyone that goes to ecrater dot com can read the forum and can say they own a site, we would have to be absolutely sure they are actually ecrater site owners. If we get this going i'd be willing to go 5-15% off depending on items and price. Thanks for your time! Wink

I am not sure their is a sure way to verify an ecrater.com buyer as a seller here - except
if they use the same email address they have posted on their contact page
or
use ask the seller a question and say Hi I am so in so and my ecrater store is and you check it out that way.
That would assure they are a seller and not an empty store that signed up and never started or just use that store as a posting id.

Not 100% true - they had to at least sign up for a store. It could be empty with no intention of being used - but they do have to sign up to post here.

IF the buyer used the ask a seller a question and said I want to buy this and gave their store name - then the seller send them a PayPal invoice for the discounted amount NO REFUND would be neccessary. BUT then if you want feedback you can't get it using this method.
If it's paid by paypal and the store name noted in the NOTES area of the order. And a proper PayPal refund is done for the discount at least you don't pay fees on the refunded portion. HOWEVER, last I knew google buys did not (don't know if that changed) return fees on refunded amounts.

Anyone else of any other ideas on how we can make this work among us?

If people use paypal and identify themselves in the message area when they make the payment, I will send a refund of 10% of the total merchandise (not shipping) as soon as I verify that the ecrater store is active.

I send paypal refunds all the time for combined shipping refunds.

I would just like some sales I could refund. It is Saharan out there.

I would be willing to give a 10% discount to sellers.

But, since I haven't sold anything yet, I really don't know how it would work with invoicing and/or refund. I haven't read or seen anything about feedback. Where does your feedback score show up?

We are still trying to figure out a good way of doing the rebate, if one of the eCrater store owners just send me a question through "ask seller a question" link from my page, I will verify and give the discount, until Christmas 20 %.
The discount will be either a Paypal refund or a check in the mail along with the merchandise.

Where you get the feedback ? open one of your items and you will see your feedback, here is the link to yours, as an example:

What if the seller sends a PM? We would know they have an account and would then be able to go check their profile and see if they have an active store?

In my case, I'm not that concerned about it. Like I said, I haven't sold anything yet... I'd be willing to give anyone 10% off.

I may also do 20% off for the month of Dec.

I know feedback is important, but I would probably just send a revised invoice from PayPal. Seems the easiest.
