A- The Store Header:
This part consists of your logo, store description and rating line of feedback. It is entirely customizable with text, graphics and links. We mostly use this area to install a larger logo permissible by eBay and introduce your business with a small tagline. It can be hidden if left blank.
B- The Left Navigation Bar:
It is a left side column that includes the names of your categories. In this area, custom design permitted us to install with latest searches, collapsible categories, etc... if required .
The Store front is located on the right side of the Left Navigation Bar. By default, eBay displays a page of 30 items (either single lines or 2 columns of items). This part can be customized to look like a regular web site page, with images, text and links. You may have many of these pages (they are called custom pages
) and create a mini website with numerous pages with full navigation. The number of custom pages available for your store design depends on your eBay subscription level:
• Basic Stores
may have 5 custom pages
• Featured Stores
may have 10 custom pages
• Anchored Stores
may have 15 custom pages
C- The Listing template:
Your customers can see your products for sale on this page, with the "Place Bid" or "Buy it Now" buttons. This area is actually eBay's "Item Description" area, allowing HTML descriptions which can be very technical rather than plain text and one image. Mostly stores just need one listing template, common to all products. If a store sells items requiring a different layout to be presented then it might need more than one template (for example, if you sell baby garments AND electronics, you might want diversity of colours and designs for these two kinds of items).
Left navigation bar can be installed in your auction template as well, enabling visitors from your auction pages to reach your whole store stock in single click.
