While waiting for YYE to get inventory in on the new Fiesta XX, I have been waiting for a check from a client to come in. Sadly, the Fiesta XX’s in blue sold out, and I’m still waiting for my check to come in.
At any rate, I see other storefront sites with forums post notices of restocks and new merch coming in. Not numbers of course, but brands and models. This pertains mainly to collector sites and toy sites that I’ve observed, but also recently, since I’m new to yoyos, regarding yoyo internet storefronts with forums. Links are optional. Colors might be nice, but optional as well. Sometimes having them poke around the store leads to impulse purchases.
Of course, this won’t help me be able to buy things when my clients are late paying me.
I know many folks are interested when stuff that is out of stock comes back, as well as new merch becomes available. The new product bulletins are nice and all, but having something in the forum helps push people over to the store. I wonder how many forum users are not also YYE retail customers, not that it’s an important number.
I also know that many of the restocks and new items becoming available are beyond the scope of control for YYE. I’ve done the resale thing before as a VAR(value added reseller), so I get things like availability and all the other goodies that go with it.
Oh, and any thoughts about a saved shopping cart idea?
