    Does an 15$ subscription / month really helps you get more sales? I just subscribed...and i see no increase in sales.

    It helps a bit, but in the end it depends on the type of account you have.

    If you have an aged account + a business account + the store, it'll certainly help your product get through the pages. Of course it might not get to the first page, but it'll help prevent it from getting to the 5th, 6th pages, etc.

    I always felt it was more about getting the extra features that help you save time, and in return make more sales.

    Its only useful if you are doing volume listing. If you need to upload 500 listings at a time then you can do it all with a csv file instead of messing about.

    You also get discounts over time on listing fees. 10% is easily reached in 3 months. So it pays for itself pretty quick.

    Essential if mass listing. Gravity ? no I dont think it adds anything that way

    15$ spent like an idiot... thanks to all "smart guys" out here who say "it's seems adding a store creates some gravity" and also "if you don't make 6000$/month from ebay you better find another job" .... hahahha

    BTW: how you guys know how much gravity a certain product/list it's having?

    I heard watchers rank your listing a lot. I tried it out by getting 5 watchers on a listing that was far down the page and next thing you know it was number two lol. The best way to get sales is to get your listing on first page.

    I signed up for a store a few months back. It's sorta cool if your into text marketing, email marketing, etc in that you get more of your customers information and can market to them outside of ebay although I think inkfrog and other programs like that can do that for you without having a store.

    I am actually disapointed in the store, I prefer the layout and interface of a non store setup. Also it doesn't help at all in searches I actually got worse in searches. I think that money is better spent bolding your listings or adding other features to make individual listings standout
