    I just thought i would login to my www.womensaccessories.co.uk site to see how many orders were placed over the christmas period, as expected their was a nice increase from £1655.12p in November to £5,342.23 for December, now for the big Oooops bit...

    I was playing with checkout settings and updating products towards the end of november, and rather than allowing people to simply checkout via Amazon which is normally my default, I somehow checked " Email All Orders directly to me " yet I didn't associate any email address with this field so have now lost a bunch of sales no doubt, or at least returning customers... Ooops!!! then **!!*!*arrgghh Oooops again...

    The other gutter is i had a buyer for this site and those figures would have looked mighty fine going through my affiliate account rather than sitting in the admin system, hey-hoo that will teach me for not double checking my settings before hitting save, lesson learnt and issue resolved :O)

    First thing I learnt in woodwork at school was "measure twice, cut once" and that is so true for everything else in life.

    Women's Accessories - Sales Over Christmas

    I'm liking that way of thinking, normally I'm pretty good at double checking everything but on this occasion i lapsed, first time in a long time... and i hate losing money no matter how small it is, grrr.

    Just stick to the good news, which is the increase in sales. It's a spilled milk, let it go. Congrats! :)

    I hear Jewish males follow this very rule.
