Im just wondering if there is anything else that I should say (need to say?) about my yarns that I am selling on ebay?  (I would love to do a store, but don't have time so ebay it is)

Items: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQgotopageZ1QQsassZmidnightskyfibersQQsorecordsperpageZ50QQsosortorderZ1QQsosortpropertyZ1

About them:

thanks for the input!

HI!

I dont think there is anything more you need to say but there are a few things I noticed that might mean you wont wont be as successful as you could be.
Firstly you sell your yarn only to the US, I'm in the UK and when I sell on ebay, more often my items are sent outside the country. Have you not thought about selling your yarn worldwide?
Secondly you have a 0 rating - it wouldn't really put me off but a lot of people might not want to buy from you until you have a few feedback points so they know they can trust you- good excuse to get shopping!
Thirdly I would advise having gallery photos - when I clicked on your link and saw the list of your items, I would have liked to have seen them all but I couldn't be bothered clicking on every single item to see what they looked like (I don't have broadband). When I'm searching for stuff on ebay - there is so much stuff to get through I only look at the gallery photos and chose what I look at by them only. I therefore wouldn't even look at your items. Does that make sense!?
Not everyone will be the same but I'm just speaking from how I am on ebay. I hope your items sell well!
Charlotte.

Im still figuring out the shipping thing, so unitil i do im loathe to ship outisde the US- once i have a few more orders shipped then we'll see. Since I just started posting auctions on ebay Im not sure ppl have had time to post feedback- they would back gotten their items from my first round of sales only a couple days ago.  Thanks for the hints about gallery- ill add that to my nexy auctoins.

Thanks for the vote of support glccafar Smiley!

oh wow, i love your yarns!! handspun yarns are so funky looking.
I completely agree with soandso... its a pain to try to look at every item on ebay, so i also tend to just skip the items with no gallery [although i tend to just use gallery on the items i think are more eyecatching]. so even if you just use gallery on the items you think are the most stand-out-ish, that will draw people in and they will be encouraged to browse through your other items.

Good luck!

On the other hand, i suppose i could make a wesite if i used frontpage, as much as i hate not handcoding stuff >.< (but its faster to click stuff lol)...

question though (i say this as imi registering my domain name):  w paypal carts- can u cntrl the quantity of items? or do u have to maually remove them once they sale? and what happens is someone buys the item twice?
