6 EXIT 5.Ebay Store Gateway This symbol indicates that you have inventory in your Ebay Store. You do not need to own an Ebay store until you get more acquainted with selling and buying operations. You may, however consider this option once you start to sell a larger variety of products. 6.Information About You or Your Company This symbol allows people to see a general description about your company. You may put whatever information you deem appropriate and add or modify it at anytime. This is a very good incentive for people to buy from you. Don’t forget, they have to spend their money without ever seeing you, your company, and for that matter, the product they are buying. They only saw the picture of the product.
