11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: yarn forward? on: May 03, 2005 11:26:17 AM
Here's how I understand it:

A YO is when you completely wrap the yarn around your needle. For example, if you had just done a p st, your yarn would be at the front, to yarn over you'd wrap the yarn over, then under the needle to bring it to the front again.

Your pattern says to do YF because if you did at YO and then a k st, you would actually be increasing by two sts (and create a very large hole). So, leaving the yarn where it is after doing your P st, k2tog. This will create the hole and not increase the number of sts.

When you create your buttons on PayPal for selling single items, there is a box for selecting the customer's country. But, it only allows it to be set to one country. However, it requires customers to only be able to ship to an address in that country.

I think really the reason people in other countries are paying the US rate is because they simply don't know they need to pay more. Not everyone reads an FAQ. Under your "buy now" button, put a link that says "click here for international orders" This would then take them to a page explaining your process for international orders.

what type of features are you looking for...just basic information, shopping cart, easy photo upload, etc?

It's on you're FAQ page under the question, "How do I know what size to order?"

Some states require stores to allow returns. I quickly googled this for Kansas and found that no such law exists. So, my suggestion is to not accept returns on custom goods. This is actually a very common way to do it. You should just make it clear in your FAQ and at checkout that all customs sales are final. I don't suggest the restocking fee, afterall is $7 really going to make up for your time and materials?

As for the other non-custom merchandise, definately accept returns on it. Just set a time period within which you're willing to accept it. I think two weeks is plenty of time for someone to decide if he/she likes the product.

Also, when I click on your sizing page (http://www.bigdogboutique.com/ProductCart/pc/sizing.html) I received and error.

I've not used it, but am looking into using zencart.com. It is open source so it's free. It has a lot of features and since it is open source, people are always creating modules to improve it.

I've not seen either of those movies to be able to be specific in helping you. But, since you know the look you like, I would rent both movies. Pause the movie at shots of the store. Then write down what elements are achieving the look. Everything from the colors, furniture, lighting, organization, open space (or lack of). Realize that it isn't going to end up looking exactly like the movies, but it will give you a good starting point.

19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: starting an online store...legal issues involved? any advice? on: December 02, 2004 08:29:37 PM
First I recommed establishing yourself as a business. You'll need to file a ficticious business statement. Then you'll need to get a seller's permit (this is so that you can collect sales tax). Visit the website for the state board of equalization for whatever state you're located in. I think there is also probably some general information on your state's website about starting a business.
20  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: to copyright or to trademark?? on: November 19, 2004 02:56:59 PM
As I understand it you don't even have to put the copyright on it.  This is what it says on the government's website:

Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in fixed form. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author or those deriving their rights through the author can rightfully claim copyright.

Do I have to register with your office to be protected?
No. In general, registration is voluntary. Copyright exists from the moment the work is created. You will have to register, however, if you wish to bring a lawsuit for infringement of a U.S. work.

For more info on copyrights, go to http://www.copyright.gov/

Are there any attorneys around that can verify this?
