Hi Everybody,

How are you finding sales in August? I have not been in the forums much over the past 7 to 10 days as sales were down and I have been breaking into a sweat to make sure that my sales will continue to improve month on month, needed arounf 40 sales plus for August to keep sales growing and was struggling before this weekend.
With a lot of letter writing and promoting, had a great day Yesterday. Monday! Orders from the UK and Canada yesterday for 45 items, so I can rest a little easy for what is left of the rest of the month knowing that August will be my best month yet on ecrater.

Will put some more time into my thread on Selling and Promoting. Have some interesting places for you to promote and place links.

Good Luck to all, Hope the end of August is good to everybody Very Happy

I haven't had any sales in a while. However, I had been neglecting my store so it's my own fault. Hopefully, I'll get back into the swing of things in the next few weeks.

Congrats on your sales.

I put mine on hold from August 1-21st and just started adding new listings again today, so my total for the month is Ziltch!

Whoo Hoo for you though, I'll be working on promoting once I get my inventory level up, right now I'm aiming for 300 items and I'm only half way there.

8 paid sales on Ecrater so far this month, 12 on the website. Things are picking up all over, 4 sales on Ecrater in the last week - I've noticed they come in early in the month and late in the month, the middle of the month, not much stirring, odd!

Just about to launch into my busy season, and I am ready - stocked for the holidays clear through til Valentine's Day (yeah, I'm BROKE LOL) Tons of listings to get ready, but I am psyched - bring it on!

For those of you "peeking in" from Ebay, don't let the numbers fool you. I would have sold double what I've sold this month on Ebay - but I'd only be getting $18.95 a ring that I can get $38-$48 here, if I was lucky, plus the FVF and listing fees. Less sales maybe here, but the profit margin is fabulous, it's mostly YOUR money to be pocketed!

That's a very important point eleganza as I have had to remind myself of this often. I have had 22 paid sales for the month of August (9 paid through FREE Google Checkout) and while some people might think "great", a month of full ebay listings for me would yield way over 100 items sold. BUT after all the ebay fees, listing fees, paypal fees etc...it's just not as sweet as selling here. And in the long run, it's looking better and better!

Bring on the holiday shopping season! Very Happy

Great to hear sales being made, i have been here for about 3 weeks now and had my 12th sale, 11 through google and one check. I like it here, no fee's and a great looking site. I just wish there was a way to know where the hits were coming from, which search engine, but no matter sales are sales. Not like Amazon where i sell one item a week if i am lucky, might jut close that venue down and speed my time here and working on a website, it is free for listing, but it takes time to play with a site that does not produce.
Best of luck all.

I have had three sales this month.

One on Amazon and two here. I am priced competitively so I am hoping the word gets out.

I got one on google and one on paypal.

I added a note that with Paypal they need not have an account.
The one sale the lady wanted to use Google but I had problems and could not get it set up. I told her to use Paypal. She thought she had to have a Paypal account. I have since added a note that you do not have to have a Paypal account to use it. They merely process credit cards and have the highest security.

Don't expect much over the weekend.
