My Ecrater store! Do not buy from it!
« on: March 13, 2012, 03:02:40 PM »
I made an ecrater store a while ago to help me sell off 90% of my collection. Before I moved I was able to keep up with it pretty easily... however I moved an hour away from most of my ponies and half the time I'm not even at my apartment these days if I do have them! I keep getting orders and I don't know if they are coming from the archived MLParena or just through google but PLEASE do not order from my ecrater site. I ONLY sell on ebay these days. I don't check the arena too often but I promise i will be selling another huge wave of ponies on ebay soon... planning to move in with my boyfriend in August!

Thanks for letting us know.
 
Just FYI though when you click on your signature it takes you to your store.
 
Is there not a way for you to close it, since you are not actively selling from it?

I wonder this as well... surely you can just close it or remove your listings? I shop on ecrater regularly - not through the arena or google, it's just a site I like to shop on. A lot of people shop there who aren't arena members... I would be incredibly frustrated to buy a pony and not have it really be available.

Agreed. I would definitely close it down and take the link out of your siggie. eCrater is searchable in Google so people are going to find it other ways than just the Arena so it's best you remove your listings if you are not going to be able to fill orders.

Thanks for letting us know :hug: 
I also agree with what the others have already said too - please take the link from your sig and close your store to avoid confusing people or having to deal with upset buyers -especially those who are not Arena members and havent seen this thread  ;)

Thanks for the info!
I agree it's a good idea to delete your listings on eCrater or your account.

duh I can't believe I didn't think to remove the link! I keep getting orders and it's driving me nuts because I WANT to get rid of these ponies but theres no possible way I can keep up with it at this time. I will check if I can close the store but the last time i checked into that it deletes everything and I spent DAYS setting it all up.... I would flip if I lost all the work I did on it. Eventually I hope I can get my ponies to one place and get rid of all of them at once. Maybe if theres a meet one day.. who knows

You can also shut your store down so that others can`t see it. Once logged into ecrater, along the left navigation menu, there`s the ``On Hold`` option. It hides all your items until you reactivate it. I`ve done that before when I was away on vacation.

You could always send them down with Kar to the MD Meet next month! ;)

Thanks StarGleamer for updating your siggy. :)   It will probably help the situation out from this end.
 
Actually though I think MBJ has a wonderful idea for you!  If she is willing to have Kar help you out then you wouldn't have to go through the hassel of your Ecrater store, especially if you can't keep up with it.
 
Just an idea  ;)
