E-junkie the stunningly simple selling solution for Craft Businesses – Exclusive Discount!

Oooh! I think this is going to be of great interest to many of you… If I said that:

  • you could sell your crafty goodness straight from your blog or website without the bother (and maintenance) of having to set up an online shop, or having to list your products on another site would you be interested?
  • Would it help if it was quick and easy to set up and you could also sell your crafty items from anywhere within your blog/site (such as individual posts, side bars, and links to page from within your site…heck yeah!
  • Lastly would it be handy if you didn’t have to pay a percentage on each sale you make, instead you pay a low monthly fee for unlimited sales? All sounds pretty good for me!


Well E-junkie enables you to do all of the above and more. E-junkie provides working copy-paste shopping buttons for you to sell your digital items (i.e pdf patterns, images, tutorials, music, etc.) and tangible items (i.e. and and all of your craft items). E-junkie’s shopping cart system work “inside” your blog/website rather than opening in a pop-up window (which is great because because your customers don’t have to leave your site to purchase your products. For digital items, E-junkie automates the digital delivery of your items (so you don’t have to do the ‘sending’). For tangible items, E-junkie handles the shipping, packaging, tax calculation, and inventory management. The shopping cart supports PayPal, Google Checkout, and Authorize. Net.



You can paste buttons like these onto your site/blog and hey presto you can sell your stuff! To see a demo look here.

Here are some more features of E-junkie (here is the full feature list):

  • To help you increase your sales, E-junkie offers feature like ‘discount management (which is handy for the holiday season) and affialiate magament. E-junkie also offer you the option to list your items in Google Product Search.
  • You can also keep a behind the scene track on visitor behavior because E-junkie is fully integrated with Google Analytics. This way you can gauge the success of your marketing, or you simply study visitor behaviour to improve your sales.
  • Even though E-junkie simplifies the selling process, you can still completely customize “thank you” emails and pages.
  • Unlike other shopping mall style sites, E-junkie does not charge a percentage on each sale. There is just a low flat monthly fee based on product catalog, and there is no limited to the amount or number of transactions

Moo MiniCards Exclusive Discount for CraftBoom! Readers. Woo Moo!

Almost everyone and their crafting Grannie has heard about the extreme cuteness and usefulness of these little card pieces of joy. They’re like card sweeties all wrapped in their own dinky doo box. No wonder we all love them.

In case you have no idea what I’m Moo-ing on about you can use any of your photos or words to create your own set of 100 MiniCards (about half the size of a normal – and not as cute business card). If you don’t fancy using your own images they are plenty of very cool designs to choose from.

You can have up to 6 lines of your own text on the reverse of the cards and you can upload your own images from lots of sources including Flickr and:

You can upload your images from any of these places

For us Crafters Moo MiniCards are absoluuutley perfect for: business cards (see my business cards), product description hang tags, promotion signs, and sale invites, but why stop there? You can also use them for wedding/party favors/invites, gift tag, address labels, seating cards, swaps, jam labels, calling cards, naughty message cards (heh!), collage cards etc etc.

The thing that sets these cards apart from the usual business cards is YOU. Because you can make these cards from any of your images you are only limited only by what you can take a photo/grab an image of and your imagination. As these little cards have so much personality (yours) they are more likely to be kept in a wallet or stuck to the pin board rather than being lost or tossed in the trash can.

CraftBoom! MiniCards Exclusive Discount: Buy 2 sets & get another set FREE!

Just pop over to the Moo MiniCard site and:

  • make up your cards (it’s dead easy)
  • enter the magic code (once per person, and once per order) H7V7BK into the promo code box

Hey, after you’ve gotten your mitts on you cards you might want to get your mitts on one of these super-cute MiniCard storage wallets by Claire.

Just so you know… isn’t paying us any money for this post and we don’t make any money off of any sales that result from this offer. They did give us samples, but since nearly all of the authors on the site had already ordered Moo cards before, we didn’t need a lot of convincing to rant and rave about their products. 😉
