Please do not post any links. myLot will remove the discussion. Loudfrog will give you are store to sell your goods. This store is similar to the stores on other auction websites. Loudfrog.com has more selling features. I found the website easy to navigate as well as list items for sale. I couldn't believe all of the extra selling features you get for free. It also has a cute theme based on frogs. I was surprised to find such a wide variety of items for sale. I didn't search for a lot but there seemed to be a very nice selection. For buyers this feature is one of the best. Sellers are only allowed to list 2 different sales for the same item. That means you do not see 10,000 of the same item from the same seller spamming a category. It is good that they care enough to let the site get junked up by multiple listings of the same items. I really like that. There is no cost to list your items. However there is a 1% fee on the sale price of the item. Your fees will accrue until they reach $5 and then an invoice will be issued. That comes to a cost of $5 to sell $500 worth of product. You will find more selling features than the other sites. You can list your item for local pick up, list in 2 categories, add 4 photos as well as subtitle. They even have MapQuest service. This is all free. How cool is that? 1. Have you heard of Loudfrog? 2. Have you bought anything on the website? 3. Do you sell on loudfrog? Please no store links. They will remove this discussion. 4. What do you sell? 5. Have you ever sold anything?

I just started a loudfrog store about 3 weeks ago. I have not sold anything yet, but that doesnt surprise me. These free sites dont usually make any sales or very few, but I will leave it open because it is free after all. I am hopeful as it grows, sales will follow. I sell jewelry made by me, vintage jewelry, handmade purses, and a few other odds and ends.

I have the same view as you do. But these sites can supplement the income. However I feel that some self promotion is needed. I do like the random featured items. It gives you a better opportunity to making a sale to someone who is browsing. I sell seeds which are great for impulse buyers. They are cool plants and do not cost much.

Do you know if any of your seeds will promote a butterfly garden?

It would be possible but I don't sell the usual annuals like cosmos, cleome and petunia. This is how I started. I was looking for unique stuff. The stuff you read about in the plant encyclopedias and books. It wasn't possible to buy the seeds locally so I started finding them. I figured if I want them the surely someone else would. So I started selling them. That grew fast. Now I get the seeds imported from other countries in bulk. Most of them are tropical and exotic. What did you have in mind about the butterfly garden?

I haven't bought or sold anything there yet, but it sure does look interesting. Is it true that quite a few people who are disgruntled with eBay have chosen that as their now preferred site? I love the frog, but wonder how or why they chose that name. It seems to have much of the "flavor" of the original eBay, back when it was just a tadpole.

It's interesting to me that I would stumble on this link on a day I was entertaining the idea of selling handmade dolls and meditation pillows on ebay or something. hehehe. I've never heard of loudfrog until just now. And that's the main reason I'm responding to this post, so I can have access to this information at my fingertips when I need it. I've also been casually looking for some Southernwood. I read that it's good to plant beside a chicken coop and it glows in the moonlight. But the area that I'm planting it in has a walnut tree so I don't even know if it would grow there. And I think you know how I feel about Purple Haze plants. Thanks for the excellent information!
