I would like to pose this question to the CCL Buyers: How do you shop?
Like many (and like all probably should for efficiency's sake), I'm driven by my WishList. Who has the most on it, with reasonable shipping (preferably free after some dollar threshold and absolutely no per item additional charges), with reasonable prices (no, I will not shop your store if your lowest price is $2.59 for 90s Image and Valiant comics).
What draws you into a particular store and what helps keep you there?
Proven service will make me repeat business. Not trying to bribe me because you're too big to do things right the first or second time, etc..
Do you navigate with Store Shelves and if so, how specific do you like the shelves? Broad categories, more general or somewhere in-between?
As a seller, I've been wondering this too. I set up shelves at the beginning and my OCD doesn't let me not file stuff on them, but I'm convinced no one looks at them and it's a waste of my time.
I shop based on WishList, so it's very rare I click a shelf because I just don't browse.
Do you look at Store Ratings, not just the numbers, but the comments? Does this influence you one way or the other?
I do look at ratings for any possible new purchase. If there are multiple villains I see how recent they are and what the complaints are. Usually they are sound enough reasons that I don't shop that store.
Do you read the About Us page and does that have any effect on whether you choose that store?
Do you primarily use the Wish List or do you browse randomly?
As previously noted, I'm a Wish List person with 1300+ items. I don't have time to waste browsing.
