  • Has anyone got an EBAY SHOP??

    Hi there everybody,

    Just wondered if anybody had their own ebay shop?

    I was thinking of setting one up just wondered if anyone already had one and would recommend it or not????

    for all your arts and crafting supplies

    Yes I would recommend!


    If you are thinking of starting an ebay shop I would suggest first try and sell on the auction - you dont need to open a shop yet.

    I sell on ebay and you get a wide market .

      I've got an ebay shop and i think it's worth it. I started selling on ebay and did quite well so i opened a basic shop which costs £6 a month. It only costs 3p to list an item in your shop for 30 days which is reasonable.

      I find when someone buys jewellery from me they sometimes browse about my shop and buy more stuff.

        Hi Jenny

        Did you start selling on ebay? I've had a shop for well over a year. If people like what you sell and the customer service is good, they'll come back. I have a lot of repeat customers.

        However it also depends on what you sell. Check if your items are already being sold and compare prices.

        Good luck! Ebay is fun!

        Bead Shop, 91 Liverpool Road, Penwortham, Preston, PR1 0QB, Lancashire. Mon-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-4pm, Sunday 11am-3pm.

          Did any of you guys experience problems with suppliers ? We have found a lot of craft wholesalers will not deal with our purely because we are currently paypal only because of its accociation with eBay - Even though we are not an eBay shop.

          We have slowly got them around to our side but we had to fight all the way.

            I have just opened a basic Ebay shop and sales have been ok.

            About the use of Paypal.. I use it for payment on my websites and some people don't like using it and some do. I have accepted cheques from customers if they really didn't want to use it but I just made them aware that their orders wouldn't be dispatched till the cheque cleared.
            I have to say that I haven't really had any problems wiyh Paypal, perhaps I shouldn't tempt fate! but then I have no idea how many potential customers were put off when they saw it and just didn't buy...

              I have lived in Newcastle for 14 years but my parents are still there so I get back every now and again..
              My Mom is a big card maker so I will make sure I pass on your website address to her..she likes to buy from local suppliers.

                  i was about to ask the same question as to opening a shop on e-bay, but you all have answered the question i was pondering, think ill try test the water first on a normal listing , see how it goes then maybe move on to a shop.
                  thanks for the advice,..

                      Hi Ebay is such a good market place I have also got a basic shop and I do alright out of it - There are many good ways of saving a bit on the listing and picture fees - it would certainly be worth your while to do a bit of research with our friend google.

                      Wishing you every sucess

                        This is a very old thread from 2006 - please look at the date first before reviving an old thread - no doubt they have opened an ebay shop now!
