I didnt change much because my skills are limited.
i wanted to keep it simple for future upgrades and my limited skills at modding my store.

my site: decalbomb : (http://decalbomb.com/)


i am a top rated powerseller on ebay with the same items and 2500+ feedback..
i dont expect that with my site but one would think i would get a sale or 2 every month.
i get almost no customers and haven't had a sale in over 2 months.
i dont know why? is it my site?

you wont hurt my feeling so let me have it.

No particular order:

Free Shipping logo should be displayed on front page
How do your prices compare to your feeBay store? They should be cheaper, otherwise there's no incentive.
Spruce up your opening text with maybe different fonts and colours (don't go mad!)
Use the Featured Categories facility to brighten up the front page a produce a point of visual interest
Use SEO categories (new feature in 2.5)
Tweak the SEO metatag file to get better SEO entries (save that file away so when you upgrade you won't lose the effort made)
Promote your site with a flyer on every feeBay sale
Get involved with forums that might be interested in your products
Use Category Descriptions as much as possible

You also need to remember how people find you - on eBay you have an amazingly large market of customers ... on your own you have a much smaller catchment audience.

As EJ says - try to drive demand from existing eBay customers or offer their friends a deal.

Use Category Descriptions as much as possible - ok

I notice that your drop-down sub categories menu 'animals decal' is hidden behind your slideshow

What browser and version. That information is necessary or it cannot be debugged...Comments are nice, but if you find a problem it is usually a good idea to include what your browser/version and platform is.

I tested in all current browsers FF,Chrome,IE,Safari and they all look good. See screenshot from chrome, but all look the same.
