Default Hello, hello

Hi everyone. I'm a new member. I just opened a retail watch business online and I know that there are so many land mines to avoid.....I just don't know what they are! Glad to have found all of you and I hope that I can share some good (or bad) experiences that others will find useful along the way.

I am also new to this forum and I like the topics.

I like the way you used the pay pal shopping cart. I am looking into using it for a site I am helping my Daughter. buytexas.com. We are currently mapping out content, and trying to finalize the content.

I would like to know your success with selling watches.. my Daughter will be focusing on Art and Grafts.

This forum looks rich with ideas, and the number of posts indicate good response time. At this time I am wondering if by hitting the reply key my reply will attach to your post. The title is blank.

Here goes........

Good luck to your daughter with her site. It looks really nice so far.

The pay pal set-up is really easy. My site is a yahoo store and they have integrated pay pal so that once you have your pay pal account it's just a matter of deciding where you want it to show up in the checkout process. So far, I have been pretty happy with the Yahoo store system (I am a rookie as far as building a shopping site). I have lots to do yet, but as I work with the Yahoo software, I find that htere is a pretty easy learning curve.

Thanks John for the kind words.

My Daughter's site has a lot of work. As you mentioned Pay Pal seems to be the solution to making sales. I have not used their shopping card, but I hear it is plain html, and you download a header.

For me it has to be plain, dumb, and stupid... and at that point I call tech support.

We are also building her an other site to use for viral marketing to drive traffic to buytexas.com .. it has a lot of work, but already (one week) it is picking up nice traffic.

good2laugh.com

Thanks Again
