Hi friends,

My name is Bebe and I just set up my new store over the weekend. I'm glad to be over here and love the "free"dom of having my own space. I previously sold on that larger auction site (you know who), but was becoming more and more disenchanted with them....before they announced all the new changes! Shocked

So, now I have found a new home and I'm crossing my fingers for good luck that we'll all be successful! I'll be adding new things to my store, almost every day; antiques, collectibles, puzzles, books, glassware, pottery, and just nice things I've found in my shopping. I hope all of you will come by to visit and I can't wait to see what some of you have listed!!

My store: http://peachesanddreams.ecrater.com

I also have a blog ~ http://bebespeachesanddreams.blogspot.com

Smiles...Bebe Very Happy

Hi Bebe and welcome!

I noticed you will be selling vintage. Would you like me to link your store off my vintage / nostalgia blog?

You can check it out here

Welcome Bebe, and good luck! I am new here too, just since Nov. of 2007, and I like vintage, antique, and collectible stuff, like you.

I wish you much luck!

Hi new friends!

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm still learning how to do everything with my new store. Does eCrater have a widget, so that my items can be promoted on my blog? It seems like I saw it on here yesterday and now that feature is gone! Surprised

Hi. Welcome to ecrater. Looks like you will have lots of pretty things to browse and buy.

Some issues I noticed.

There are no auctions on ecrater. Please remove all references to auctions and bidding.

Your shipping paragraph won't work here. You have to use either a flat rate shipping for each item or use the shipping matrix. As is buyers expect that shipping is included in cost of item. If you combine shipping you can state that you will send a refund for excess or ask them to wait for an invoice.

This is a shopping cart and people expect to pay at the time they finish shopping. You will lose most of your sales by not having sihpping available at the time of the purchase unless you are selling highly sought after or rare items. People don't want to wait 2-3 days for emails to go back and forth.

If people buy several items and use Google checkout, you can adjust the shipping when you make the charge.

Thanks Maggie for your tips. I've re-worked the shipping and given a best estimate for priority, but also stated in my ads that I can ship the item for parcel post.

Anyone been able to find the eCRATER widget, so I can put the box in my blog?

It had a hiccup and was immobilized for the moment. Haven't heard that it is available yet.

Awesome and informative blog above!!

There is so much to learn here! I'm picking up more pointers every chance I get in these threads. I THINK I have my shipping correct in my lists!?
