    How much stock did you have already made before setting up your online shop? As in how many items did you have made?

    That's an interesting question. I am currently in the quandary of what to do first - make more stuff and then set up my website or vice-versa? So I end up spending so much time umm-ing and ahh-ing that I don't do either heehee

      I'd love to know the answer to this too! I'm half way through sorting out a website whilst trying to build up stock too. But I'm slow on the website and I keep coming up with new designs and trying them out, which is time-consuming, rather than sticking with what I know!

      I guess though, if I've got fifty things finished then I'll be happy with taking things further.

      Hope that helps, if only to know you're not the only one who doesn't know!

        Well I started to type a reply and it disappeared somewhere!!! Will probably pop up on another thread. What I was going to say is it probably depends on the type of goods you are selling. As I make cards - and the designs I put on my web site are fairly simple ones, keeping the one off designs to special orders and craft fairs etc - I could make an order after it was received (as long as this was made clear on the web site). However, if what you make is complicated and forgive me I started to reply without looking to see what you make, then you would obviously need some stock. Depends how successful you feel an initial launch of a web site would be!! Good luck anyway.
