eCrater said sales on its system over the holiday weekend were up significantly from last year. Sales on the site, which is both a free web store builder and a free online marketplace, were up 101% on Thanksgiving compared to 2008. Sales were up 72% year-over-year on Black Friday, and were up 53% year-over-year on Cyber Monday.

A small seller like me got $400 worth of sale on dec 2nd & 3rd itself.

It was beyond my expectation and it was better than my ebay sales.

Also I can keep a major share of my profits.

Wish best sales for all fellow ecrater sellers.

I think the sales actually depend on how the items are ranked in google products(i don't promote else where except psu) .

Some times my products are ranked in google products higher and get a lot of sales at once.

Sometimes the ranking will be low and there will be no sales for days.

I have had a store at ecrater for about 3 years. Had one listing in it and did nothing with it. I listed some items in it today and opened google checkout.

If it goes ok I will quit listing much on ebay. Will probably keep 2 or 3 listings on ebay just for kicks. I only run 10 to 20 on ebay now. That still runs the bill up. Ebay is expensive with poor results.

eCrater sales have been getting better every year.

It takes a little while to become established but once you are, the sales come in quite frequently.

You may find sales are better if you have more than a few items offered. :wink:

Thanks goldenlady.

I plan to put about 100 listings on eceater. That's about all I can manage with my other listings. I don't want to duplicate any items on my websites but I have plenty of inventory.

I am still trying to figure out what google attributes are . I understand what attributes mean when referring to a person but what attributes does a carburetor have? LOL.

Also having trouble with understanding key words for my adwords. I have problems understanding google sometimes.

This is my slow time of the year so I have time to experiment. My business picks up in march and I don't have much spare time then until next november,

Is that carburetor new, used or refurbished?

That is an attribute.

You can find the list of Google Attributes if you go over to the eCrater message forum and do a Forum Search for Google Attributes.
