I have limited energy and time. I try and sell some stiff on the internet.
I try to keep things as simple as I can.
The shipping matrix is a complication of selling. THAT is why never.
When people explain it, it is still complex and weird. I just need to post a shipping charge and move on.
I have received plenty of help and great advice here. The matrix is beyond any explanation or help.
Once again I have seen many posts on here over the years from others who find it toxic.

Matrix is not simple. It is not intuitive. I sell a variety of items. That is my reality.

By my count, you have 17 active listings. Or am I missing some somewhere ?

That is it so far on ecrater. I list elsewhere and get occasional sales there. I will add more here. Things move slowly for me.
No need to give me the oft repeated "no one will find you without 752 listings".
The idea of listing here was to have a second source of sales....

I have been told I need loads of listings to be found. My listings get views. Each month they get views. Someone finds me. Just no sales here. I am too stubborn to give up....yet. I will add more stuff. Does not seem like a good place to sell.
I know...YOU SELL TONS OF STUFF.

Is vanilla ice cream good? is water wet?
I have not paid listing fees anywhere for a long time. I make sure to arrange that.
The lack of listing fees is not even close to the point. I have only so much energy and time. I get nothing for the effort here. I will try some more.
I do this to make some money. If I don't sell, fees are not the big consideration.
I know what prices work. People see my stuff. No sales...

On your home page you can enter text, use keywords that people search for and like an intro to your store.

It's blank now.

I have no idea what that refers to or how to do it. No hints with this site...

D you ever go to look how other stores are set up? Or explore all the options listed at the left side of your store? Do you ever look at your store as a customer would?

I have no idea how to do those things. I find Ecrater impenetrable. No hints.. No help in the programming. How do IO do any of that? How do I see what a customer sees.
I have used other sites. This one is a closed story.

Under "edit Text", select home page. Be sure to click update after you've added your text. You are limited to the amount of text that will show on the home page. You will be allowed to add more text than can be seen, so check your work after you've added text.

To see your store as a customer would see your store, click on the preview button from your admin section. You can also enter www.normsplace.ecrater.com in your address bar or click on the www button below a post you've made in the forum. Clicking on the www button for any poster in the forum will take you to their store.
