Some of you may have seen that I hinted at something in my last post that I have been working on behind the scenes, well, I can now share what it is!
I used to list crafting items that I had bought in bulk etc on the well known online auction site ebay. Up until September 4th it meant having to pay listing prices as well as commission on the sell price but since that date ebay now also take a commission on the postage costs too, basically charging 3 times for 1 item. This means that the sell price for each item would have to be increased to cover ebay’s charges.
My idea is to see if attaching an online store to my blog could work, it means that I can pass the savings I make from not paying ebay’s charges and commissions onto the purchaser. I have tried my best to keep the prices reasonable and the postage too. Ideally I would like to expand on what I have in the store so far but it may depend on how it goes.
I would like to stress that this will not effect my digital freebies, you won’t start seeing them appear on the shop for sale ;) I have said in the past that digital items will always be free on my site and I intend to keep to that :)
