Just getting started and wanted to say hello. I will be listing sportscards, old magazine ads, video game replacement cases and advertising, and who knows what else.

Welcome! If you need help about finishing your store let us know. You should fill out your contact, terms, faqs and about pages. You also need a logo.
To input this information you go to the upload logo and edit text on the left side of your admin page under texts and color.
Just curious. Why did you pick Ecrater? How did you hear about us?
I found Ecrater years ago by reading forums before social media sites such as Facebook became popular. I was looking for something that was different because I was becoming more and more disgruntled with Ebay. Now I am wondering how people are finding us.

I found Ecrater through an internet search for 10 ten auction sites or something like that. I think I may have even listed here years ago. I too am looking for something other than Ebay. Sick of them taking most of my money.

Tails, welcome. If you sell things for .20 eBay must leave you little in your pocket.

I am going to make a suggestion, bearing in mind that I know nothing about sports cards. But I'm under the impression people want to know the condition of a card. Also I think you were typing everything in caps. Either Google or eCRATER were having hissy fits over that.

Besides typing everything in caps is the cyber equivalent of yelling at someone.

I can see that for 20 cents, you probably don't want to put a lot of work into something, but I think Maggie is right that people want to know the condition of a card. Even if you have a condition list pasted in and then rate the card as mint, fine, etc. according to the list so buyers can have an idea of the condition.

Google would most likely consider your blurb about ebay as boilerplate and it really doesn't belong in your descriptions about a card, not yourself as a seller. That is the sort of thing that needs to be in the About page which still needs done as well as your Terms page where the blurb about free shipping after paying the first shipping fee. and you need your log. Right now your store doesn't look and isn't finished.

Thank you for the pointers.

Didn't even think about the all caps thing

Selling cards for .20 is not a lot of money, but in my experience at other sites, most people don't buy just one card. the low price is to generate multiple buys. Same cards are .99 minimum on Ebay. I try to appeal to the team and certain player collectors out there.

The Ebay blurb was just to show that I'm not a newbie, although newbie here, so as to give confidence to buyers. Will remove that.

And will finish up the other parts, just wanted to get up and running.

thanks again for all the help
