I don't list enough items yet to pay the monthly fees for a store. Once I have more inventory built up, I'll consider it.

I think it depends on your prices though. My stuff is mostly cheaper, used items. So I start out very low and go from there.

Oh for the love of...

With an ebay store, you pay listing fees and a monthly fee for the store.  I got burried.  i don't recommend it unless you are making a significant ammount of profit each month.

I've tried both and for me personally, it was cheaper to list in auction format. Probably because I really didn't have the time to commit to the store and people would ask you for sizes you didn't carry thinking I was some large cooperation and not the small town seller I was. The store works well for some people, if you have large inventories and the time.
