Welcome, I've been here a whole day now and am FINALLY getting stuff figured out!
Advertising will be more difficult here, but I disagree with BT (as do several people from what I have seen) I think bringing BUYERS over is a good thing for EVERYONE. Also the main page of ecrater says "eCrater.com is both a free web store builder and a free online marketplace. Sellers can easily create their own free online store in minutes. Buyers can easily browse and compare between thousands of products"
Sounds to me like they WANT to build a MARKETPLACE (like ebay) not just build webstores. <shrug> What do I know? I'm just going to give it a shot and see how well it works for me. In the meantime, I'm going to bring as many buyers as I can for me AND you!!!

You should be bring buyers to YOUR store. They won't see my store from your store.

TRUE - if they buyer comes in via a google search they end up at ecrater.com NOT in an individual store.
FROM the google search WE ALL benefit.
From my advertising or your advertising WE DO NOT all benefit.

THEY absolutely DO NOT!

So many are running here to get away from ebay why would ecrater.com want to be like ebay? To run sellers off?

I didn't mean like what ebay has become, but like ebay WAS, or should be, or ... whatever all these ebay defectors are looking for.
I'm sorry I said anything! I was just going by what I read on the homepage!
Please forgive me!!!! Embarassed

jahjesters - you are forgiven, lol Laughing
But for those of us that have been on ecrater.com for years
we know ecrater.com is NOTHING like ebay. Not even the same concept and we are trying to let everyone know that upfront so that they don't expect to have a sale in the first month.

Mark my words - with 30-45 days there will be a bunch of posting aobut NO SALES. Heck, that's not even enough time for search engines to locate their store AFTER they take the time to submit the URL to as many search engines as they can. That takes 4-8 weeks if not longer.

Having a webstore takes hard work and dedication. Not list and wait.
Do nothing, nothing happens.

Big Tall Man~ Where do I find out how to submit my URL to search engines? I'm sure the info is on the boards, if you could just direct me. Also, any tips on how to bring my eBay customers here, without breaking any eBay rules (I still sell there). Any tips from former or present ebayers would be great.

Yeah, the truth is appearances can be deceiving. Try searching Google for any kind of promotion geared to buyers from eCrater itself. The main shopping interface is there but I have a feeling it's only to satisfy some kind of requirements for Google Products.

Also, technically speaking (this is discussed in lots of threads here), it's a much smoother buying experience when the customer goes straight to a store.
