Checking Out an eBay Store

When you finally arrive at the eBay store of your choice, you'll see a page that looks similar to the one in Figure 15-6. An eBay store not only lists the items that the seller has listed in the store, but also every active auction or Buy It Now item the seller has placed on the eBay site.

All eBay stores have four clickable tabs:

1 Store items: The home page of the store. 1 Feedback: The seller's feedback.

1 Store policies: The terms and conditions of the seller's auctions.

1 About the store: The seller's About Me page (see Chapter 5 for more on About Me pages).

Figure 15-6: The home page of my eBay store.

You'll see several things on every eBay store home page:

1 eBay Stores logo: Instead of the eBay logo in the upper-left corner, you'll see the eBay Stores logo. A click here brings you to the eBay stores home page.

1 eBay Navigation Bar: I told you that you can't get rid of this; the eBay Navigation Bar also appears at the top of every eBay store page.

i The store name: The name the store owner has chosen for the store. The store name helps you remember the Web address. Each eBay store has its own address that ends in the eBay store's name, like this: www.stores.ebay.com/insert storename. For example, my store's URL is www.stores. ebay.com/marshacolliersfabulousfinds.com.

1 Seller's User ID and feedback rating: Below the store name, next to Maintained by is the seller's User ID. And of course, the ubiquitous feedback rating.

1 Add to my Favorite Stores: If you click this link, the store is added to your My eBay Favorites page on your My eBay area.

1 Search box: To the right of the store name, is a search box that allows you to search all the items this seller has for sale.

1 Store logo and description: In the middle of the page is the store's graphic logo, and to the right of that is the seller's description of the store. (This is the area that is searched when you search Stores by Store Name and Description.)

1 Store categories: eBay store owners may assign their own custom categories to the items they sell to better organize things within the store. You may click on individual categories to see items in that classification for that seller.
