Posts Tagged ‘hopefully making some extra money’

I have jumped onto the online shop bandwagon. Had to get creative as to where to host it. I saw some South Africans on etsy… but don’t know if I’m ready to go that route. My items are relatively cheap (ok ok, they are real cheap) and don’t think buyers will want to spend so much on postage. Locally it’s already pretty high as it is.

Browsing the magazine rack at Spar the other day (I don’t usually buy magazines – unless I’m entirely sure I will read and use at least half of the articles.), so I see a beading mag and buy it. Somewhere near the back is an ad for selling your goodies on Bid or Buy. I saw that as the final sign and uploaded my first little batch on Sunday! So exciting… and so confusing!

 Well, confusing at first. Eventually sort of figured out what all the jargon means (ok, so maybe the words are all in plain English, but I wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer yesterday). I think it’s the negative ratings that scare me. That I might upset a buyer and that will ruin all future transactions.

Will try to upload some more products tonight. And I have to make some more. Check out the ones i DO have up!

And I really need to sell these cause there are these findings I want – the CUTEST ever – and I want to make a special product that I saw in that bead magazine I got… but it’s going to cost me at least R300 to get the beads I want… and postage still has to added. So instead of breaking the bank NOW, I’ll wait until I’ve sold a few things and maybe I can build up a clientele or better reputation… or I’ll just wait for payday and buy those beads anyway 😉
