Very Happy Hi,
I just signed up with Ecrater making my trek from Ebay Rolling Eyes which I
have been on for over a decade. It's always hard learning a
new method of listing a I'm still learning. Any help Idea I can get would
be much appreciated. I am still waiting on transfer of my ebay items/inventory
How long does that usually take?

I've never done it so don't know the answer but please once you get your items uploaded, remove all references to bidding, winning, eBay and the like from your listings.

Like the name of your store. I remember rumble seats.

Depends on how busy they are at eCrater. Some of the process is done manually, so it could be several days at least.

Once they upload do not delete the listings. And try to use the bulk lister again for the same items. That is considered using the Bulk Lister as Bulk Editor and eCrator does not like that. They won't upload it for you a second time.

So just edit, move listings, categories etc. But don't delete them if you don't want to list them manually.

You will have to upload images manually, if you have more than one image per item.

But the contant update of the site is actually a good thing. If you haven't yet submit your store homepage url to various search engines (See the topic on Search Engines in FAQ and Solutions section of the forum to find the links to submission pages). So as your stuff get uploaded maybe your site will be visited by search engine crawlers.

Hello;

I'm confused whether your items are genuinely old or are reproductions. Some you say are used and others brand new. I can't quite accept a 1920s book as brand new even if it has not used. If the items are reproductions they should be identified as such.

If a book is never used then you can term it as new. That is more of a condition definition that the year of production.

Every one can see the publication date to figure out when it was printed.

This is quite common in book sales.
