I typed this up to help my Mom set up her store. Thought it might be helpful to others as well. Feel free to add or correct anything I might have incorrect.

Sign in
Click on Products
Add New Product (button at the bottom of your current inventory)

1. Name (this is equivalent to title on ebay) You can use more characters so do not abbreviate and fill out as many details as possible to help people find your item.
Write out vintage.

2. Enter your description as you would on ebay.

3. Picture Click on browse. Choose your default (gallery) picture. This works the same as ebay. You can only add one picture at first. But I will explain how to go back and add more photos later.

4. Enter your price

5. Choose your local category. These are the categories in your store. If needed, click on Categories and add new categories.

6. Choose your Global category. Scroll through the list and find the best category match for your item. Try to find the most specific, best match category.

7. If you want the item to be featured on your home page or have a featured position check the boxes. IMPORTANT DONT FORGET to check the USED Products box if the item is used or vintage. Otherwise it will show as Brand New Product.

8. Choose Yes or No if the item is Taxable.

9. Enter the Quantity. Example If you have five identical items enter 5 for sale individually. If you only have one enter 1. If you are selling 3 items in one lot, enter 1.

10. Enter the weight. Check Weight dependable (middle circle) or free shipping if you want to offer that. There are other posts will helpful info on shipping matrix.

When you are done 1 10 Click ADD button.

It will come to the manage product page.
Click on the Camera icon button to add additional pictures.
Click on the pencil icon image if you want to correct or add additional wording.
The red X deletes the product.

The new copy feature

This feature has been created to make it easier to list similar items.
Just click the icon to the right of the product title that is the clip board icon
first icon in the second row of icons
It will create a copy of that item. Everything except the image(s) is copied and on the screen for you to make the changes you need
click on the UPDATE button at the bottom and it will save this new listing.

Get one of your items. I'd suggest a doll, and place it in front of you on your desk or a table. One a pad of paper, make a list of all the words that come to mind about the doll.
cute, cuddly, soft, stuffed cotton, painted face, blue knit polyester sweater, white onesie, newborn cap, hand made, 12 inches long, and whatever else your doll says to you. Just put the words on the paper. When you can't think of any more, go to step two.

Divide the words into groups. Which tell about the
construction, size
clothing
finishing
emotional--how the doll comes across--funny, sweet, lovable, crying

Then you make a sentence using the words from each group. That should make a paragraph and a good description.

Then you take the most important words -- up to 100 spaces and letters, and create a title
Handmade Peek-a-boo boy doll blue sweater white onesie

There you have your title and description.

Then you put the doll in a well lit place. Choose a background that contrasts with the doll. Dark for a light clothed doll, light for a dark clothed doll. Take a bunch of pictures in all different poses. Think of all the cute poses real babies get into and try to do the same with the doll. Take a closeup of the face, the clothing if it is special, and then choose the cutest picture to use as your number one default picture. If all your pics are lousy, take them again.

Once you have created one good listing you will find the second one only half as hard and it won't take nearly as long, and by the time you've done 5 you will wonder what all the fuss was about.

If you had to be a marketing genius to sell on ecrater or anywhere, probably none of us would be here so you are in great company. If selling your creations online is something you want to do, then it is probable you can do it.

IF YOU ACCEPT MAILED IN PAYMENTS
smilin-eyestreasures wrote:
Hi -

in admin under payment options where you put in your name and address - I first typed in Please make check payable to _________ and then typed my address.


This will help avoid the problem of receiving checks and money order made payable to your store.
