Hello and Welcome to CDmusicrow News Blog on Blogger!! For those that have come across this by accident I sell Cd's, DVDs, Vinyl Singles & Albums plus a few other related items - Link at the bottom of the page!!

Well I have managed to get over 2000 items onto EBay since I last posted something in January on here selling on average 4-6 items a day.  Really like to see 10% of my stock going each month on EBay but may pick up from September. I hope they sort out their maintenance problems surely they must have back-ups etc fees have technically gone up as a featured shop is now £59.99.  Still no real alternatives though would like my own website with shopping cart but would be expensive to set up correctly.  Have been trying play trade for a while in my opinion prices are to cheap as certain companies sell Cd's for 98p including postage.  How is that done then yes if it is digipak under 100g that is 90p plus you have your packaging + 10% fee.  Most of my used stock on Play trade is £2.00 and struggles to sell so I might be calling time on Play trade!! At the end of the day EBay is still better at selling Buy it Now items think I would have the same problems with Amazon regarding pricing.

Introducing Sale of the Day on both Face book and Twitter for my daily sales on EBay think this is a good way to self promote the stock!! Looking at other ideas as well so stay tuned.

That's about all for now folks will try to post more often but see how it goes.

Hello from Brixham! Happy New Year to you all.

The big news today is HMV going into administration. Not a great shock but I hope a buyer is found as its important for music to have a place on the high street. Probably will need to be downsized by a lot we have a HMV in Torquay I wished they had a bigger specialist section, less gadgets and Vinyl records. I think it will survive in some form as there are still a lot of people wanting physical product. We will wait and see what happens before writing its obituary column!

Onto news about Cdmusicrow on EBay . I now have over 1800 items including CDs, DVDs, vinyl and t shirts. It does take a lot of my time but hoping to reach the target of at least 2000 items. Looking at making some changes to the EBay shop front to make it more interactive. I want more people to get involved through this blog, twitter and Facebook. If you have any comments please do let's hear them.

Since I begun over 2 years I have sold over 4500 items I think that this is a great achievement and hope to continue for a long time to come. I would like to ask if you buy something from me and you are not satisfied please do get in touch first before leaving neutral or negative as I think it's only polite.
