I am new here, but have established a good feedback score on eBay (mostly through buying. I also have a satellite phone website (very new): www.offshorecommunications.net (I see I am not supposed to wholesale products here; I am not, I sell retail. I am including this link sopeople can see what and how I am marketing. Any and all suggestions and comments are welcome! And, of course, remove the link if I have mis-posted it here)

I am looking to add marine electronics to my website, and to sell marine electronics on eBay. Refurbished units welcome. Reliability and product stocking availability key.

I am also looking for a supplier of surplus unused or new old stock Qualcomm GSP 1600 phones and docking station kits for my website.

Thanks in advance for any replies or help!!

Hi Steve,
I am not familiar with marine electronics but I wanted to tell you that I like your website.

I know a lot of people like to have a 'slick' looking website but I think what you have done is great.

It is very personal; you actually USE what you are selling; the site gets to the point without having to wade through a bunch of non essential stuff.
I believe the people who are looking for what you are selling will be drawn to the simplicity of the site and it is all done in a way that, at least to me, promotes trust.

I'm sure there will be some others weighing in shortly on what you can do to improve your site.

Do you have a 'returns' policy or did I miss that on the website?

Thanks for the nice words! The website is in it's third day of existence, and I just started selling the phones two weeks ago. Everyone has been very happy, not a single complaint. So I have yet to think one up and post it?

I think that I can guarantee that the phones are in perfect working order and are exactly what I say they are: unused surplus phones in new condition in brand new high end Pelican cases.

Now that I think of it, it seems your mentioning was a suggestion that I have one........?:) Any suggestions, bearing in mind what I have said? Thanks for your reply!!

Hi Steve,

Glad to be of help as always! I agree with Ron, your website is really simple and easy to go through.

Other than adding a return policy, you might consider adding a FAQ's page, where you can address the simple yet usual queries of most online customers - Like, do you ship internationally? or what is your warranty?

I do like reading through the write ups as it gives me the feeling that it was written by a real person and not some generic editable website content.

Cheers and all the best!

Thanks Richelle,
I have applied to two of the dropshippers/wholesalers that you recommended. One of them, Wholesale Marine, I already have a good business relationship with (I buy the yellow Pelican Cases from Gary).

I just (about five minutes ago) posted a warranty and returns page on my site. I gave it a lot of thought and talked it over with someone that also markets them for me.
One thing: my site is three days old yet has 300+ hits (!) but no sales!! I hope the warranty helps......but I wonder if there is anything else you notice that may be affecting the sales numbers (or lack thereof).

I really appreciate the time and effort you and others are taking to help make my new venture a success! :)

No worries, Steve!

Really pleased to learn that you are and have previously done business with Wholesale Marine. When you get the time, you might want to add your review and rating of your experience with them - Link hidden: Login to view (Thanks in advance!)

Yes, i did notice you have been getting a relatively good number of hits considering your site is new :)

Conversion rates seems to be a fairly common issue for many online sellers these days. Some time last week we had a member also asking about sales conversion rates...

I posted an article which I found while browsing online and hopefully you will find it helpful - Link hidden: Login to view

Also, Alice found this interesting article on how changing your shipping methods help increase sales conversion rates too!

I do hope this helps you land the sales you are looking for!
