When Does It Make Sense To Have An eBay Store?

Filed under:

Hello Terry

Thank you for your very informative newsletter, it got me thinking about my own eBay enterprise.

May I ask you a question, I will understand if you don’t have time to reply.

I have been selling on eBay for about two years, I sell things of interest to a small niche market consisting of bookbinders, I think we are doing ok, we now list about 25 items regularly and have plans to expand considerably.

I have read your newsletter, and frankly learned quite a lot from them.

My question is this.

I like some aspects of running a store on eBay, in particular the lower listing fees. But I understand that store listings do not get the same exposure that ordinary auction listings do, and I am concerned that our sales will suddenly drop off if I open a store.

Any thoughts on this Terry?

Thank you.

Richard Norman
