Default Ebay store owners ( drive trafic to your store)

ok i just noticed in my ebay store that i can exchange links with other store owners to trade traffic
if u have a store And actively have sports cards for sale lmk we can exchange links & help our crappy sales
I am working on loading my store now & changing to a store only format to see how it goes i have about 450 items ready to go & we are still loading our turbo lister

if your interested lm your store name & take care of the rest i can only do this with 10 people

yes its a $15 per month fee + 06 cents a item under9.99 & 0.11 cents for over 9.99 + 10% FVC , how ever if you have 15 of the same item you only pay the fee for 1

Would you just list quantity available if you have the same item?

yes if you have 25 1982 topps rookies of cal ripken jr your qty would be 25
& it would still cost 0.11 cents including the gallery & if you sold 2 the qty would drop to 23

Thats cool. I am thinking about opening a store but I want to see if its going to be worth it. It has to be time consuming listing things. Do you get many sales?

Thanks for the info! I have been considering a store myself, but I haven't taken the time to read up on it.

I have a store also, I'd be willing to do some cross promoting. Sales have been very good the last month and hopefully will keep getting better. Some day I hope I can quit my "real job" and just run my cardshop downtown and sell on Ebay.

the store is worth it if you do 100+ auctions a week since your auctions can be searched through your store & found on the web

as soon a i can figure out how to do it ill send u a cross promotion request
i forgot how i found it . it might help your sales to add your store items to the gallery since its only 0.01 cents .

i quit my real job 12 years ago & i am thinking about going back to work i am not making enough money on ebay anymore to stay home .

You have to run auctions as well to get that traffic though
