I have gotten off to a bad start on eCrater this month also. But it doesn't seem to be just eCrater. My web site sales have dropped and even Amazon sales have dipped.

I think it is just the recession.

Hello Folks,

I just put a bunch of items on ecrater about a week ago. Do you folks actually get sales on ecrater? I'm getting alot of hits. In fact, just about as many as on Ebay but no sales.

I think you would get your question answered by Ecrater sellers if you posted this in the Ecrater section of the board, Bonanzle.

i guess we are going to have months like this from time to time?

i have done really well the last few months and have gotten used to my business growing...although slowly, it is growing...and then comes March and i'm almost suicidal!! well not quite...but anxious all the same...i think i should eat a cheese cake or something else thats mildly self destructive !!

Yeah! It i the wrong section. :wink:

northstar01 for eCrater is just prepare the store, sit and wait. In my case my average sale before I close it July 2009 was 1 sale by month, but I saw the others sellers that have a minimum of 3 to a maximun of 30 by month. It really depends of what items you have and how many do you post. Because technically all the traffic came from Google.

Just go to the eCrater section. Look the topic and click the firms with the links of the different eCrater Sellers and you will see it be yourself.

If you are a hobby seller like me is eCrater will work you. If you are seller that his only income is Internet sales then you can try posting the same time in different places like Bonanzle, Wensy, Atomic Small, and Blujay.

Ecrater works fine for me even though I have to ship from the UK.,so the posting cost makes the items more expensive.

This whole year has been rather topsy-turvy sales wise, so I wouldn't get too upset about a bit of a hick-up now and then.

I've got records of my web sales for my busy season back to 04. (not the whole year) It's in a spreadsheet broken down by month and by eBay, my web site and alt sites, (all total).

For all those years March has usually been my top month or a close second to Feb. 07 was an exception to every trend as it was totally off for me all around.

But the trend this year has been rather goofy. I had a bit less number of sales in Jan but much higher dollars / sale. More sales in Feb but a less dollars than Jan. This month many more sales but mostly rather small sales. I will probably have a record number of sales for me but no where near a record in dollars.

Just my long winded way of showing that things ARE bucking the trends this year. When they do, often my later month's sales are higher than usual.

Yours will come around too.

Carol

I haven't kept an exact count but my sales seem to be as good or maybe even slightly ahead of last year.

I do know that people are spending lots of money at the estate auctions. For instance, what I buy at auction last year for $10 is now going for $15 or more.

I'm doing ok but that cheescake sure sounds good! :)

This year has been a dud so far for my ecrater businesses.

Hoping things will get better as the economy gets better.

ok heres something i noticed...don't know if it could be a factor in slow ecrater sales

when i was panicking yesterday over my low sales i noticed that the google feed tab showed the last upload being March 14th...in the past it usually showed a few days prior at the very most

anythoughts?

Perhaps Google has dropped you for having duplicate listings.
