The sites getting around 900 hits per week
Hits or page views? (Very different beasts.)
What percentage are bots/spiders? (They are usually cash poor and tend not to buy...)
How long has you site been up? (I'm guessing you don't have a well-known/trusted brand like Amazon- lack of familiarity with a company prevents a lot of people from buying, especially if the company/site is brand new.)
Is what you're selling something that people need or something that people want? (Or just something that you think they should want?) What are sales levels like for other sites selling the same types of items?

These are hits, page views are around 4.632 per week. I am getting sales, but only a few a week. I have had my domain for 4 years and my site has been live for a few months now. I'll have a look into other competitors, but almost certain my product mix is good.

If you get a few sales (say 5) out of 700 unique visitors, then your conversion ratio isn't abysmal. 1% or less is pretty standard for a site without a huge repeat customer component. Altering your offer, design, etc. might increase your conversion rate slightly but it seems your biggest problem is lack of traffic.
