I would have set one up and even have the *perfect name and .com for one but the paperwork is what's stopping me. Not having access to print out the required forms is my big issue - but I'm also slightly unsure of how the earnings are paid. As Im not in the US I have to pay 15% of my commissions back (from regular affiliate program) if I want to cash in my commissions rather than spend them and would hate to make a few hundred dollars from a personal store and have to pay a % to EF to get the cheque then pay tax on it in my country as well. I figure I'm better off just sticking with the regular affiliate program

I don't see the point. I prefer to buy from the main site.

I like the ones I've seen. I don't know if I'd want to do it.

If you like shopping at EdenFantasys already, that's great!

The point of the stores is to allow an affiliate to promote their own set of products to their targeted audience (who may or may not be current customers of EF).

EdenFantasys may not appeal to someone, but they might want to shop somewhere that is marketed toward them specifically. For instance, some people might not want to wade through all of the vibrators to find ones that are best for couples play, but if there's a store that carries a subset of products that are great for partner use / use during sex, then someone might find that store more appealing. I hope that helps.

Thanks - I get the concept. I'm sure it's in EF's best interest to reach as many people as possible. However there is a cost (overhead) to do this. The question is - does it pay? Do the additional revenues substantially exceed the cost and upkeep?

I have to assume that it does - or the concept would quickly be ended - good luck, the greater your volume the better the prices and can be for us all.

From a customer's point of view, I really enjoy the personal stores. If I'm in the mood to shop for a particular type of item, I can just go to the store of another contributor who generally seems to like the same types of toys that I like. It narrows down the search a little.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you like the contributor stores we have here onsite. The Eden Personal Stores are offsite but they can function in the same way: An affiliate creates a subset of Eden's products to feature in their store so their targeted audience can see some products chosen for them.

I made a store very recently and I find it is a good way to express yourself and recommend/support products that you yourself have bought or would buy. Like mine

i dont know that without a blog following or a blog for that matter, a store of mine would get any use at all.

I've really been interested, but haven't been able to find any info on how or what is needed or any real in depth details. I'd love to do it, but would need to know how it works. I'd hate to start and then not have the knowledge.

A personal store owner would likely fare better if they have a following and/or are willing to do some active outreach and self-promotion.

I'm glad to hear you're interested! Have you checked out the Eden Personal Stores blog? There's a Details page that explains what you need to do to get a store, and it has links to setup instructions.

Here is a link to an Eden Personal Store that another affiliate created, so you can see how the store is set up.

If you have any questions about the program, email partners@edenfantasys.com.

I'm with you there, I won't risk starting something I don't know much about. Also, I don't do the whole blog thing so it'd have to be a store on the site itself. I'm interested just not sure.

I *kind of* want a store.
I want one because it's a neat outlet but I don't think I could have my actual favorite products in there because I wouldn't keep it anonymous.

I'm a little shy.

I really want a store! I'm working on a unique blog idea/twist so that I can get one going.

I'm certainly interested but I don't really understand the ins and outs right now and I don't know that I have the following for it yet.

I would leave this sort of thing to my wife, she handles all the finances and "big decisions" for the household. I don't think I'd be able to work something like this lol. Im just a simple man!

Although, I must say, I think that it would be awesome for a guy to run a store!
