We are here to help, so please reach out to us at anytime… Your success is our success 🙂
Before you start…
You need to decide on what do you want to sell in your Online Store?
Do you have a hobby, a passion, an interest?
Then it’s easier to relate to a range of products related to that. It’ll be quicker and easier to write Blog Posts… which are import for your Google rankings
Try and keep the rang of products narrow. Rather than Women’s Fashion.. be more specific, swimwear, sportswear, footwear, business wear etc.
Do NOT think that cheap will be easier to sell… Think High Ticket..
OK you can sell products worth $2… However if you sell $20 products you will make 10x more money in the same time… AND if you sell $200 products then you will make 100x more money in the same time frame. Remember people have come to your store to buy…
We suggest that you go to eBay or Amazon and have a good look around.
Here is a 3 Part Check List of things we require to get Your Online Store up and running.
Please work through each point and then complete and submit the relevant Form below.
NOTE: Please wait for Your Domain Name & Email to be set up before Setting Up your eBay or Amazon Affiliate Accounts.

On the Set Up Info Form TWO we need;
1/ Decide on a Name, Slogan and Logo for your Online Store TIPS: 1/ Keep it short eg Fays Fashion – fun & fresh
2/ And keep your Logo design as ‘Landscape’ So it is wider than high, the reason is if it’s a tall logo that will also make the menu bar taller wasting screen space.

4/ Select eBay or Amazon Product Sub Categories. NOTE: Your Store can have a maximum of 6 Sub Categories with a combined total of 144 products (please read on)
We need to know which eBay or Amazon Sub-Categories of Products you want in your store. These products will be our ‘SOURCE’ for product importing. As we need to link them to your ‘TARGET’ categories in your Online Stores (see section 5). So the correct eBay or Amazon products (source products) end up in the correct categories (target categories) in your Store…
NOTE: You can have multiple eBay or Amazon sub-categories going into the same Category in Your Online Store. And you may find it easier to draw it out on paper so it’s clearer…
We suggest that you choose a niche for your Online Store. Focus on similar fields of products in a Category (categories are very wide) eg Fashion is very wide… Lady’s fashion, Mens fashion, shoes, suites, casual , formal, summer, winter, baby, toddler, 1920′, Roaring Forties fashion and on and on… So keep it narrow.
You can have up to 144 Products in you store at any one time. Split between the number of Categories you select for your Online Store.
5/ Your Store’s Category, Sub-Categories and Titles (this wording will be used on the Header Images). Please submit on Form Two below.

Sub-Category: Theater Tickets
– Title – Theater Tickets eBays Best Buys
Sub-Category: Concert Tickets
– Title – Concert Tickets eBays Best Buys
Sub-Category: Theme Park Tickets
– Title – Theme Park Tickets eBays Best Buys
NOTE: Be descriptive before fancy.. These Category & Sub-Category Titles (Headings) need to be what people are looking for in a Google search.
Eg: ‘Theater Tickets’ is descriptive for people searching. And ‘eBays Best Buys’ is secondary to the product.
6/ List Your Store’s TARGET sub-categories and which eBay or Amazon sub-categories will be the SOURCE used to stock your Store.
My Store (target): ‘Theme Park Tickets’ to be stocked with eBay (source) ‘Theme Parks’ including sub-categories (sources) – Disney World, Disneyland and Universal Studios
My Store (target): ‘Concert Tickets’ to be stocked with eBay (source) ‘Concert Tickets’
7/ Supply an image for each Category and Sub-Category at least 1200 x 1200 pixels (1500 x 1500 is better). Also images for the header that we can crop down to be 1,500 x 450 pixels.
We suggest that you keep the emails after submitting Step 1 & 2 Set-Up forms. This way you can refer back to them when re stocking your Online Store. Restocking to replacing the discontinued eBay or Amazon products.
In the future, before you click ‘Import’ in your Stores admin area, you need to make sure that the correct eBay or Amazon subcategory (product source) is selected so it will import those products into your stores correct sub-category (target category).
The system will do all the importing, however at the present time someone needs to check that the settings are correct. And click ‘Import’ to activate restocking of products.

How do I find a Domain Name?
All websites and emails need a Domain Name
The domain name is registered never owned. A .com domain name is the most used and is for USA or Global Commercial websites hence .com.
Many people have been court looking up a domain name on a Register and then coming back and finding the price to register the domain has quadrupled in price. Some domain registrars monitor Domain Name Look Ups. Then add at domain name to a premium list with a price or an auction site.
So let us look it up for you. We are a domain reseller.
For you to search Domain Name availability, simply put the complete domain name in the address bar of your web browser. NOT in a Google search. eg type http://FaysFashon.com and if it comes up as a page, keep looking.
Then we use your domain name as a Shop / Business email address to make you look more professional and easier to manage as you grow.
Why Domain Email Addresses?
We use your new domain name and create an email address that we set up a forward to an existing email address you have.
It keeps you looking professional. And just say you had been using an email address connected to your ISP Internet Service Provider. And you change to another ISP. Now you have to change it every where and what’s worse if your clients only know you by that then you have lost all that possible repeat business.
Also you can forward the domain email to multiple email addresses. So you can be away on holidays and your PA can look after your business as they will be able to deal with email enquiries.
Another reason is that when someone sees your domain email. They then also know your Online Store website site address 🙂
How do I create an eBay or Amazon Affiliate Account?
When setting up your Affiliate account with eBay or Amazon.
You MUST USE your new Online Store/Business email address. Smarter, Easier for us and you to manage when all things related are using the one email.
Amazon see links in footer of the relevant Affiliate page for your country.
Please read and understand their Terms and Conditions
What should I sell in my Online Store?
We recommend that you stick with something that interests you, your hobby or background. Dog products, Fitness, Health and vitality.
We also suggest that you have some more expensive products around the $50 to $500. Just imagine if you sell only $5 products. Now with every single sale of a $50 or $500 product you are making 10 to 100 times more in the same time frame… a single order.
And another tip is make sure that all products on your site are related, have a common theme.
We are here to help… with support and mentoring… However at the end of the day it’s Your Online Store.
Your Online Store has the most advanced SEO software to help you rank well on Google (over time) this includes;
Yoast SEO with Keyword, Description reporting and tips to improve when doing Post / Blog articles
Google Analytics with Googles html code embedded as a site file.
Ping Bot notification (top 65) This is done every time you Publish a new Post / Blog article
Content spinner on all Product descriptions that are imported from eBay or Amazon. This is so Google doesn’t see that it is duplicate content.
At the end of the day you also have Affiliate Cookies that are attached to a visitors browser so if they leave your Online Store and then purchase direct from eBay or Amazon you are still accredited for the sale.
Now like any store brick and mortar or online your returns are determined by the amount of Traffic you have and how many convert. So you will make 100 times more in the same time if you sold $200 items and not $2 items. As the affiliate commissions are same percentage 3.5% to 10% per sale.
So if you are pro active and do a few Post/ Blogs a week to start with and then weekly after that. Then you will eventually have a great Google ranking Organically (unpaid). However like most businesses your sales maybe be slower until you are established, this takes time. So be pro active 🙂
At the end of the day your returns will be reflected in how proactive you are.
