Why Buy from Our eBay Store?

You might wonder why we have an eBay store when we have one of the largest jewelry stores in Houston already in place. However, there are many advantages that we have found to having both a brick-and-mortar store and an online store on eBay. New Customers First, it helps reach those jewelry shoppers who are not even from the Houston area but may be searching for a perfect piece of jewelry or even a set of coins. This provides us with a way to access a larger audience and grow our customer base beyond just where we operate our Houston jewelry store. Appeal to Online Shoppers It also helps reach out to those in the Houston area that may not feel comfortable always walking into a jewelry store, thinking they can’t afford anything. The online store through eBay provides them with an idea of what the jewelry costs prior to coming in so they can see there is something for every budget. Matching Unsold Jewelry with the Right Buyer In reaching other potential customers, we also put up jewelry on the eBay store that we have not been able to sell. The result is that we’ve found customers that were [...]
