You then use the more expensive BIN, fixed price and auction items to drive traffic to your ebay store where everything is posted.
Concentrate your BIN/auction postings to the lower priced items (under $25) which have lower posting fees. The goal being get as many items posted for the lowest possible price. Skip all of the extra crap like bold, highlight, gallery, extended auctions unless it is a big ticket item which drives a lot of traffic and competitive bids.
And BTW, ebay store items DO show up in regular searches. Just in certain situations, keyword sets etc etc. But by JUST having an ebay store and NO auctions you will get sales. Provided you aren't selling obscure widgets that only One Legged Albino's from Eastern Iceland need.
