Answers For Seller's Questions....
(That We Really Don't Want To Hear)

Question: There's a buyer for everything, right?

Answer: Not really, sometimes your stuff is just crap. Ouchy!

Question: Are my buyers just not on this site?

Answer: No, people are like sheep, they want trendy and cheap mostly, or go where the crowd is:(

Question: Should I raise my prices?

Answer: No you shouldn't, once you determine the point where you actually make money, stop there. You aren't attracting new customers this way, just shutting out people who can't afford to try your shop! However, if you've been in biz for awhile, slowly creeping up your prices is beneficial:)

Question: Should I calculate each individual country's shipping cost, per piece, and give them a fairer deal?

Answer: Nope, just set a standard price. It's so much easier, and people will mostly not want to convo/email you in the real world, they will just move on to another shop.
