Hi, I like the color you chose for your store and you have some nice items.

I am new at this myself so I hesitate to comment...but maybe you should feature some of your items on your home page so people can see some of what you are offering. And I would put the sales tax info. somewhere else (FAQ) and use that space on the listing for describing the item. Oh, I just notice the description on the bottom. I think I would at least switch that around and give buyers the good news first!!

I'm always jealous of people who have different things to sell. I just sell books right now - not that there's anything wrong with books but it just doesn't seem as exciting! But I have many books to sell first before I think of anything else... Laughing

Apparently, OHIO must be one of the states that say you have to collect sales tax no matter where yu ship to. OR the seller is licsence by each state to collect sales tax.

CreativeHomeAdditions - one other thing you might want to do is use sub-categories.

for example
Under Household Essentials
You might want to have
Lamps
Vases
Mirrors
Furniture
as sub-categories

OR
perhaps you prefer by rooms
Bathroom
Kitchen
Bedroom


To set up sub-categories
Click on Categories
First set up a Root category. To do this click on Categories
Click on add a category - the bottom center after the list of categories you already created

Fill in the Name of your ROOT category
Decide if you want this ROOT category to be featured on your home page. (1)
If so, decide which position you want this category to be in and then upload an image relating to that category.
Click on add.
Repeat for each ROOT category you want in your store.

SUB Categories
To set up a sub-category. Click on Categories then select edit to the right of the ROOT category you want this sub category under.
Click on add a category - the bottom center
Fill in the Name of your sub-category
Decide if you want this sub-category to be featured on your home page. (1)
If so, decide which position you want this category to be in and then upload an image relating to that category.
Click on add.
Repeat for each sub category you want in this root category.

SUB SUB Categories
You can keep adding sub after sub after sub if you so desire.


(1) A featured category can be a root category or a sub-category. This will be one of 5 categories that will some up on your home page. You must upload an image to have this be a featured category.

This is how your Root category with a sub category will look:

Category Items
Jeans --- ROOT CATEGORY
Pants --- ROOT CATEGORY
Shirts - Long Sleeve --- ROOT CATEGORY
