Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

A few weeks ago I decide to experiment with moving a portion of my inventory from the online store ( to Amazon to "see how it would do."

Well, I'm happy to report that experiment has been a huge success.

In < 2 weeks, I have moved more product on Amazon than in > 6 months on our own website.

Granted, Amazon gets their pound of flesh for each transaction, but when you add up hosting costs, merchant account fees, and Paypal fees, the difference is negligible and the increased volume of sales more than makes up for the slightly higher overhead of Amazon.

At this point, I'm nearly ready to move all online operations to Amazon although I'm going to continue my current experiment until the end of July before closing the online store on our site, just to see if the sales continue at the same pace or increase further.

If you're interested, the Amazon store is here:

Hey Chris, congrats on the success with RCG! I've been getting into buying strategy board games so I might hit you up soon for a few! And that Amazon store is going to be really handy.

As far as I'm concerned, the experiment is a success. I stumbled across your Amazon store via this blog post, and since my default store for EVERYTHING is Amazon, you're now my default home for tabletop stuff. Nice timing, since my 2 munchkins are about ready to start playing Munchkin. Good luck
