But what makes it so good? Oh, I'm so glad you asked.....
- For me, the most important tool they offer sellers is the ability to use html codes to track stats. With stats we're able to see what part of the country (even where in the world) our views are coming from. We can also track what time of day we are getting our views, and what the viewers are looking at, all depending on the analytic account we have. HF also supplies us with a view counter for our main shop page, as well as item view counts.
- Next is the ability to customize the look of our shop. We have been supplied with some pretty cool templates to create an individualized shop appearance to compliment our items. Again, we have html availability so we can add codes or whatever we are able with our knowledge of html. I, for one, am not very html savvy.
- Cool fonts, font color choices, and other little editorial gadgets to use at our whim. And don't let me forget the ability to create prefilled fields which help make listing quick and painless.
- Wildwood (a HF seller) describes the ease of listing as "smoo-hooth:)".
- Need more options then Paypal and check/money orders? Well, with HF we have it. Just name it, they've supplied it: Revolution money, direct credit card payments, offline payments (Western Union, etc) and more!
- Shipping options galore! Choose the shipping fees per state, country, etc. Have an item that can only be shipped priority? No problem, it's an option.
- There is also a fees calculator so we can calculate how much your listing will cost.
- Oh, and tired of never seeing your item on the front page? Me too. HF charges a minimal fee and your item will cycle throughout the daily page loads and show up on the front page!! How exciting to see your item showcased on the front page. Especially when you know you deserve it.
- Hey, want to offer a sale or special? What an awesome feature that HF has given us....the ability to put some or all our items on sale. Immediate mark-downs for our customers, making their purchase easy and painless. No waiting for an adjusted invoice for them. And for you...no paying fees on a dollar amount that really wasn't sold. Oh, and if we are in need of sending an adjusted invoice for any reason, we have the option to do that right through the HF site!
- Have a pesky customer you don't ever want to have to deal with again? There's a cool function to block them. You'll never have to be harassed again.
- Wonder what your hard earned fees are being used for? Well, on HF, they let us know when and where they are advertising. Check out the completely handmade and totally original commercial below!
