i've noticed sales dramatically reduce in the last week, not sure why - anyone else experiencing this? tailed off end of February....

it's snowing in London, my products aren't seasonal. I guess i wouldnt be stomping around brick and mortar shops in this cold snap but if anything i'd expect an increase as a result of people staying in and surfing?

what gives?

Last week was pretty crap for us, but its kicked back in today though.

I think a lot of it has to do with the bad weather, our retail shop was also quiet last week.

Been in ecommerce for six years now, and this is always our quietest month of the year. The credit card bills from Christmas are hitting home… the customers seem to spend less.

Don't worry about it, spend your time improving your business and it should pick up again soon - but it's also worth having a friend run test transactions to ensure everything is working as it should be!
