Showcase Tuesday : Shop 1cre8ivemess!
Today is an exciting day for me!
I’ve had an Etsy shop for a couple years now and while I’ve loved the concept of it, I’ve struggled to keep up with the functionality of it. It was pretty time consuming [for me] with numerous photos and a lengthy description for a card. Not to mention, the various fees – between listing fees and selling fees and PayPal fees. Hopefully [fingers crossed] I’ve got a solution!
I’m perfectly imperfect enough to know that there will probably be some snags & kinks along the way. I promise to be patient and work things out the best way I know how until everything becomes a smooth procedure. Through my test runs, things have gone pretty well so let’s get to the details!
The 1cre8ivemess shop is here within this blog. I’ve started with some basic categories like birthday, thinking of you, thank you and some seasonal cards. I will continue to update and add cards throughout the week since it’s a much easier process of listing than what I’m used to.
You as a buyer can view cards under the various categories or themes. There, next to an image of the card will be some details including the size, the materials used and the price. There will also be an “Add to Cart” button. Like most online shopping sites, click the button if you want to buy the card and it will be added to your cart. You can see the individual items in your cart along the left hand side of the blog. You can also access the cart by clicking on the shopping cart image in the upper left portion of the screen, or by clicking on the shopping cart title on the right side bar. Shipping is calculated with the addition of each card.
When you’re ready to check out, you can pay with PayPal or with a credit card [through PayPal]. You’ll include your mailing address and once I’ve received your payment, I’ll get the cards in the mail and on the way to you! As always, if you have questions or are interested in custom orders, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully you’ll take a look around and share the site with your friends. I’m really excited about it and am looking forward to adding more cards as the season progresses! Before long I’ll be adding Christmas and New Year’s cards!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by! — Now go check out some cards!
