    What now after the end of the membership? 2RSB
    @bdthree

    Firstly, please keep the donations coming. Currently, after quitting the membership set-up and moving to this new setup there are 4 subscribers. I am at the moment and for the foreseeable on nearly zero income p/m. I just can not keep the place going on that.

    So, to try and raise funds another way as well as subs is obviously ads.

    Secondly, I am adding a store. It will comprise of 3 sections.

    China Dropshipped products for those who want something cheaper and are not in a rush.

    UK Dropship products providing I can find some good deals which I am.

    And lastly, I would like to add my own section when funding allows for Homebrewing and equipment and maybe other related hobbies or do-it-yourself stuff such as bread making and so on.

    Anyhow, I thought I would update everyone.

    To make the shop idea more accessible/appropriate to needs, maybe start a topic about what people are doing their due diligence/research on and whether there is a China alternative.

    To kick it off with an example, I started looking on AliBaba at some LED batten lights and the whole sense of it just becomes a bit too much, I just find it frustrating. For someone that was on it more of the time it would be much easier. I hate window shopping at the best of times and just end up adding them to my  Ebay Watchlist and paying the premium for someone to act as middle-man, or in this case finding they’re out of stock!! I started looking at them for my conservatory, but they’re just as useful for the garage and the loft.

    Regarding the ads, I personally hate them, but if they keep the lights on, then so be it. Let us know when they’re due so that we can whitelist forumite on our adblockers. :good:

    It’s just going to be clean, simple & Straight forward. This is the first product I have tried.

    Needs cleaning up. But it works. For china dropship, I’ll be just focusing on small items. No big-ticket items.

    Hope your plans work out Lee. But I am more than a bit annoyed about you having to do this. Just FOUR subscribers? There are a lot more than that who visit Forumite. Quite a few who still visit, some of whom have benefited from help given on the site. I am happy to pay my DD, along with the other 3 guys and I don’t mind ads at all, if it helps you run the site economically: you cannot afford to do this for nowt.

    Maybe that’s me on my soap box again, but that is how I feel. Come on guys, pitch in if you can.

    :good: Thanks Bob.

    The shop is not just to run this place though. I also need to start thinking of an alternative income route. It’s coming close to my court day for this house thing and so on plus selling websites and hosting as just gone completely dead.

    Hopefully, the store will pick up some passing trade. Plus if and when I move onto a boat I need to be earning online. Hopefully, the website and hosting will pick back up shortly and this will just complement it or vice versa.

    I have put up some watches so far while I’ll tweak everything which I think is about done now. Link

    Been looking for a less expensive automatic watch for ages, ordered one from the Link. I can’t wear a Quartz watch, something about my body breaks them, they always stop after a couple of days and never go again. So that was a great find. Best of luck with more sales! :good:

    Cheers Bob. Keep in mind yours is the first order and I am still getting to grips with the system so you’re my guinea pig. I am sure it will all go well :)
