Hi everyone I'm new to ecrater stores and was looking for some help.
I'm trying to list a featured item in store and can not do it. Also trying to figure out how to upload a photo on store front and can not. Any one with a suggestion that might help? Thanks all. Have a good day!

Do you mean an item featured on the categories pages or the "Featured Item" on the storefront?

Be sure to check out the Solutions area of the forums. Here's the thread on Images which I think will answer the above question:

Those are called FEATURED CATEGORIES - if you are referring to the 5 categories you can have show up across the bottom of your store.
To get them there -
Log in
click on cateogories
select one of your you already have set up - click on the pencil icon to the right
UPLOAD an image
Select a Featured Position
UPDATE

The FEATURED ITEM is in the upper right corner of your home page.
When creating a listing there is a section that says something like Show as Featured item on the home page.
Check it.

EXCELLENT job on your FAQs, etc.. Rob! Ooooooh, garden stuff, I'm so gonna be browsing!

I'd change your meta tags somewhat, you have them separated in your keywords by commas, but the meta title and description have them as run-on, no spaces or anything. A search engine will not be able to separate them.

Use your title meta tag to incorporate your main keywords. Take those keywords and craft a short 1-2 sentence description, and if you can vary the keywords a little, so much the better. One way to do that is make the keyword plural in the description (i.e.: birdhouse in the title, birdhouses or bird house in the description and/or keywords). Double exposure to search phrases that way.

FYI: Your candle category is listed as 'candel'

Love that homepage image, too!

Maybe change to this...

If there is something special you would like to see, (needed a comma) just ask. It is possible that we may be able to provide it for you. Thank you for looking. New items are added REGULARLY, so come back often.

Hi and welcome,

Love the picture.

I would like to suggest you don't make your welcome message so vague. It makes you sound like a Sears catalogue or a Home Depot. From the 5 pics you have featured, I think you probably are focusing on decorative items. I only saw cookware and Pjs that weren't primarily for decoration. Are the decor items from a particular place or made by a particular company?

I'm not sure how many people actually see our home pages but for those who do, it's curb appeal. It's where you want your best pictures, and your best writing.

The statement that you might be able to get them anything they want should be eliminated. A jerk could make you jump through hoops over that line. If you want to emphasize customer service suggest prompt or combined shipping or special ordering.

One other suggestion: I don't think your jammies belong in the bed/bath category. I realize that is where they are meant to be worn but they are clothing. You have no limits as to number of categories.
