    Wow, fifty dollars a month to keep item in shop. I wonder how many people will do this?

    I think the $50 fee seems rather high unless an individual is going to start an on-line business.

    I agree. Unless you have a lot of items for sale. But even then you could loose money. BUT on the other hand if you were to open up your own physical store to sell your items it would cost you more than that until business got going well.

    I'll keep it in mind to look at, but will sell my stuff on my own web site or other markets. Just my opinion.

    Actually, when you do the math, it's not such a bad proposition.
    Of course, if you only list 1 thing a year, it's not for you. ;-)

    But if you sell more than $500/month, you'd be paying less in fees than on eBay, especially with the current changes. Of course, the other side of that is that you also don't have the number of eyeballs looking at your stuff either.

    And some of the bigger fabric sellers on eBay with scores of listings could continue to sell on eBay, and then try to introduce their customer base to this new site.

    Of course, the details on what exactly you're allowed to do in your shop (listing limits, other fees?), ease of use of the site, protection policies and/or procedures, all work into the equation.

    We'll see next week......

    Or you can pay $5 per item if you just have a few items.

    I wouldn't have much to put in there because I'm so slow going. So....that's why I said wow. ;)

    Some might use this. I would buy my own site in a mall and price my own merchandise. Being far away, they could set prices high than your selling price and double sip off the merchandise.

    $50.00 a month is a bit high, especially if you still have to pay a percentage of your selling price.

    I don't think you'll have to. Although I haven't found any details in writing.
    I think that's going to be the pitch - that you only pay a listing fee. And then the deal is between the seller and buyer.
    That mall shop for $50/month is a really interesting proposition.

    Here's something from the owner/developer (video):

    The way I understood it -

    If you have your "shop" - it's $50 per month - and you could have as many items in it as you wanted -

    If you only have one or two items, it's $5.00 per item for two months on the site.

    Even $5 per item is outrageous. And what are they giving you for the fee? Are they going to be advertising the site like crazy, paying out tons of money in ads that will be seen everywhere? Because that's what they owe their clients who are paying these exorbitant fees!

    For the fee, I would imagine only very large/expensive items wii be posted or huge stashes. I cannot imagine getting a good deal with that sort of overhead.
