Although i have been selling on Amazon for a couple years now, this was the first season as a seller on FBA (stored and shipped by Amazon). And although it is still a few days from Christmas, I can safely say:
SALES WERE GREAT!
Most products seemed to get in a few extra sales that were not big movers, but far and away the most popular item I had on offer were my Scottish socks.
I have to say, I am a bit surprised at how well they have performed. They were not very popular when I had them available at first. Then I shipped a few pair into Amazon for them to sell, and it has steadily increased. Happy to see it.
In the turbulent world of trying to guess or figure out what could add to festivities and fun, you gotta look months ahead to get a style of socks designed, produced, and made ready and available.
Make its quite of weird when you have to think 2 holidays away….
In this instance, although its not even Christmas yet, I’ve already gotten in my newly designed and produced Mardi Gras socks. I have them on hand, and some should even be reaching the Amazon warehouse in the next week or so.
Maybe a little too late for a christmas present….. unless its an overnight delivery option….
Been a bit behind schedule, but I’ve been trying to clean up the website, and get a better handle on the Amazon stuff.
I had to cancel an order today because the buyer wanted 2nd day delivery. I didn’t know that was an option for someone to click on when buying my socks. I don’t think it is possible to get socks to the USA from where I am in 2 days. I was thinking I would be able to send a message to the buyer “Hey sorry, I had to cancel the order because there’s no way to get the socks to you so fast. If you are not in such a rush, I would be happy to send them out to you.”
Instead, I hit “cancel order” and there was no way to let me message the buyer. Crap. Well, hope they try again.
A friend of mine set up an online market place for Haberdash, and already I’ve seen a jump in sales! SO I’m rather excited to be able to help get the word out on the new site: Haberdashers WorldWide: online bazaar
I think I have most of my stuff posted on the site, but I certainly need to go through it.
Hey folks, I’m trying to get some more reviews on Amazon, especially from actual buyers. SO! if anyone wants to make a purchase & promise to do a positive review, I’ll double the order for free.
– Let me know.
