notice how I compare the price of my product to those being sold on ebay and amazon? Good idea?

Also, check out the homepage of this site and tell me what you think! Right now, all I have on there is a few basketball cards, I plan on selling other things I have and figuring out how to sell items for other people and get like a 15% commission or something.

Also, each "add to cart" button is unique based on the item. I've entered the quantity available with paypal to avoid overselling and the approximate weight of each card as 0.03 lbs. The heavier the total order, the more the price goes up. When an order is 0.37 lbs I offer free shipping. 0.37 lbs is approximately 13 sports cards. This few of cards will be sent in an envelope. More than 21 will be sent in a small box (very small) and hopefully selling more than 21 cards I'll have the funds to provide free shipping in a small box since it is only a couple dollars for shipping.

I think it's a good idea. It lets people know how your prices fare in comparison to others. I can't remember if you had a link for each of your ebay and amazon prices. This may be a good idea so that people can see for themselves the prices being charged.

yea, I might do that, I want to be careful though, I'm trying to make sure any link from my website is at least a PR of 5.

For nearly 8 months I went with a PR of either N/A or 0 and then one day I checked all external links in my website and took out anything less than a 5. This week, my PR I've noticed is a 2/10 which is impressive seeing how a month ago it was 0. I'm thinking deleting the low PR links had something to do with it.
