I sold on ebay for about 6 years using the store set up and left to sell exclusively here two years ago. Within months I was passing up my ebay sales for the last couple months I was there and then when you don't include all the fees I wasn't paying things started looking really good. The stress really went down also because on ebay it feels like all you are doing is tweaking listings to go with the new rules they would roll out and just when you thought you were done they would roll out new rules, rinse and repeat over and over. I couldn't handle it any more. I love selling here. Would probably like to have my own site someday, but trying to move, accurately, over 7500 and counting listings is a huge operation and I do fine here. As long as things go well for me, I'm here. The UK site has been great too.

I haven't figured out how to do the widgets on FB. I don't think they work there, but you can click on the FB icon on one of your pages and write a short blurb and post it to your page and it will create a direct link back to the listing. You might want to try your popular 6 pieces first (one a day)!

It stays there until the party you are sending it to receives it = signs in.

Florida -- the poster could be because you have more than 10 attributes in the actors category. I believe you are only allowed 10. I stick with 10 which probably means I read it somewhere, but can't tell you where.

You are repeating the ISBN in the ean space. I stopped selling books a while ago, but I think that ean means a manufacturers number in Europe not the 13 digit ISBN number. That should be under ISBN. All books in the US are now being given both a 13 and 10 digit ISBN number and eventually the 10 digit will be dropped.

Other than that I can't see anything unless it is those >> symbols or the slashes in the dates instead of a hyphen, but you know what you are using with your other books that works. I also don't do posters. I'm in my own little niche and don't budge much from it.

PostPosted: Fri Mar 16, 2012 4:11 pm    Post subject: isbn ean Reply with quote

there are 3 categories of numbers
ISBN (10 digits)
ISBN/13 or EAN (13 digits)
UPC (12 digits)

I have approx 1300 books for sale, these are the only ones not loading.

I will reduce the number of actors.

Thank you

It takes about 3 weeks to change the google settings, be patient.

You can check for additional attributes you can fill in on the attribute page. Click on the question mark on the right. Fill out all of the attributes that apply to your item. It is easier than going back again to fill in more.

Hi Florida House, thanks for your reply.
How do I know if I'm filling it in correctly if it takes so long to take effect?
I dont understand the attributes asking me for color then I put a color and it says I need value and brand name, which doesn't make sense to me with my items. No place for color either?

The first column is the title of the attribute you want to add. The second column is the value of that attribute. In the list above the "title of the attribute" are things like color, size, material, etc. So if your butterfly bracelet is gold-tone in color, you would put the word color in the first column with no space before or after the word and no capital letters. Then you would put gold-tone in the second column. If your butterfly bracelet is gold-tone and purple, you would put gold-tone, purple in the second column. Note there would be no space before gold-tone or after gold-tone, then a comma, then a space, then the word purple with no space after the word. You would not list color twice, only once in the first column with the two words for a value in the second column.
