Word is that Auctiva Jeff is the CEO of 11Main, but I haven't verified it.

I requested one, but haven't gotten reply yet.   

Fees are:
 $0.05 per item listed, per month.
 3.5% selling commission ($50 per item max).

Requires using PayPal or your own merchant account through Authorize.Net for payments.

And seller guidlines at https://11main.com/Docs/Sellers/11Main_Seller_Guidelines_042414.pdf


On a complete aside - I wish Amazon would hurry up and fix all the glitches with listing in jewelry dept.  Right now the bot is changing metal types on jewelry items and locking them to where you can't fix it, fashion jewelry is getting put in fine by the bot, the info that the templates say to put in doesn't match what the system wants, etc.  It's glitchy as all get out.  I've got some jewelry listed but I'm not about to list any more on Amazon until they get the insane bot under control.  Luckily, it has yet to mess with my fine jewelry items that I currently have on there *touch wood*

Amazon has glitches all over
Not sure why product pages that been there for months if not longer all of a sudden lost our picture!

Jewelry has a that changing metal issue for a long time already
Some of our alloy metal was changed to sterling and that was before Christmas
No idea how long it was like that before I noticed

Stylephyle is working with tech ppl to get the metal thing sorted and has been looking for other sellers with same issue.  If you want to add yours to her list for tech people her facebook page is same name.

I applied, haven't heard anything back....yet.
Count me as a fan of Auctiva Jeff.
I still use Auctiva, but only on the smallest subscription.
Stylephyle just applied for membership...I'll get the approval rock n' rolling.

Not that I sell in jewelry, but it's happening in other categories...the glitches.
I can't stay on top of all of my inventory and it's a challenge right now.

Has anyone heard back from 11 Main?  I read about it on Amazon and was intrigued enough to apply but have yet to hear back.  I am sure they have been swamped, although someone on an Amazon forum said they were approved in about five hours, so who knows?

Nope.
I haven't heard back from them.
I might just drop Auctiva Jeff a note...not that it will make a big difference...
But, a girl's gotta try!

I rec'd my response.
Nope.
Small hand picked selection of sellers, blah blah blah.
Try again in a few months.

Maybe they need a small group to help them work the initial bugs out of the system.

If they only go with a small hand-picked group of sellers they aren't going to be all that competitive with the likes of Amazon and Ebay....is my thought.  And I agree, there is something to be said about letting them work the kinks out first before jumping on the train.

I still haven't heard back...but I figure if they don't want my shop...then it might not be so horrible because I have such a full plate right now anyway.

I will be very curious to see the whole thing once they get up and running.

Penelope,

Oh Man, Do I understand the having one's plate full.
I hear ya...oh yes I do.

I just can't help myself and like to apply for varied selling venues to keep my bases covered and my knowledge base growing.
Example: I applied to the Sears Marketplace, accepted and have yet to do anything with it...but I know it's there and if it takes off...I'm approved.

11Main has some pretty good minds working on this endeavor.
Some biz minds that I respect...so I'm hoping I'm on the next group of sellers to be invited.

Lol
Not that I have time either
My plate is on overload!

Still moving into our new warehouse (empty storage unit on Saturday)

Planning my daughters wedding - all guest are from out of town ( means more work)

She had back surgery on 4/17 ended up with complications and was back in the hospital for a week after being home 10 days
She's back home (not at my house) now, hasn't worked since 4/16, got tons of bills to pay and she's still don't have a return to work date
Major pain in tailbone area, has to get a "push" injection 3 times a day, bandage change at least once a day but been more like 3-5 due to drain out her back still (at least now it's clear and not red like blood)


Plus I have an
Out of town 11 day trip planned!

On top of trying to get approved in clothing
And trying to keep our business growing
May might be the first month that took a nose dive for us

Nope.
I decided not to reach out to Jeff as my plate is on overload, too.

I figured I'd wait till end of June/early July.

Congrats on the wedding.
Wow, you have your hands SO full!
I'm so sorry to hear of your daughter's surgery. (been there, done that)
Keep her spirits up, BT.
It can be a sad time for a person when going thru that experience.

Sending lots of energy for the up and coming month!

Oh, man.  I just can't help myself either!  I always think I can do more than I can do. It's the Wonder Woman complex.  Or maybe I forget, while I am building my empire, that I am NOT Martha Stewart and don't have a massive crew working for me behind the scenes.

I am in the midst of moving my B & M store to a better, higher-traffic location, after ten years in the same spot. Grand opening June 3rd!  So I have NO business thinking about doing yet more one thing.  And yet....and yet......the temptation is always there!

STILL no news from 11 Main.  I wish they would just say no to me and get it over with.   :)
