Hi Welcome. You should put a photo for your avatar, fill out your profile, and add more items to start. Cute eggs. Good luck. :)
You need Policies, inventory, shipping to the rest of the world, a banner, an avatar. Do you have all the legalities of running a shop set up? Taxes, DBA, etc?
Love the Polish eggs! Love Polish people! They are the best!
Good luck w/your shop.
I don't see your banner......
Banner and policies! They are a must. ^.^ Good luck!
While I think policies are very important I know that I opened my shop without them in place and I'm sure lots of others have also. I think it's more important to show a professional looking shop. That means a nice banner, an avatar, lots of listings (at least 40 or 50 items) to start. Then you are making a great first impression when customers click on your shop.
But it makes sense to think about your shops policies before you open.
Opening your shop is not something to rush into.....but not having policies in place is not necessarily a death nell either....
Thank you everyone, I have made some updates and will definitely work on a banner. I have over 150 finished eggs, the problem is taking photos and uploading all of them. I just added a few more photos and more will come tomorrow.
Good job Monica, looks like you're on your way!
Any other things I can do? I'll be uploading pictures later today. Any tips help!
Monica, have you reviewed this? It has lots of good info for a Newbie:
