Offering Free Shipping on my eBay Store?

As of today, I have 27 active sales in my eBay store. Since posting my items, I have thought about offering free shipping (on MOST shop items, with the exception of a few) After running circles upstairs in my crazy brain and consumed half a dozen of Bavarian filled chocolate donuts, went ahead and revised… Continue reading Offering Free Shipping on my eBay Store?

Understanding the Etsy Handbook

Selling online is very new to me. Creating an online store with having not a clue of where to begin is completely in another universe of comprehension and just plain scary like a horror/suspense sci-fi movie!
