Why don't you start including links to new approval books in your announcements? I usually look at the announcements, but if sellers don't include a link to their new book I'm not going to go to the trouble of trying to find it. I know it's not hard, but it's so much easier to click once and go right to the page, and I always take the easy way out. And if I find a way to make buying stamps easier, I'll do it. As far as I'm concerned, if you don't give us buyers a link, you're going to lose sales. All those commercials on TV? Ads in magazines and on-line? They are there because, like it or not, they work.

Creating links in StampoRama is dead easy. Just format your listing like this, without the spaces in the brackets and substituting your own URL and description of the approval sheets (it's an image, so you can't cut and paste it as a URL):

Hi Bob,

Doesn’t clicking on the word “approvals” beneath the sellers avatar accomplish that? And, if I’m not mistaken, new books appear at the top of the list, so the nifty site software already does all of this automatically.

I just tested this and it works perfectly. Click on the word approval under the sellers avatar picture and you go right to a list of their approval books with the newest book on top. So adding a link really isn’t necessary - it is already done by the Stamporama software. Adding links that might go to the wrong page or be incorrectly done might cause confusion. The current system is goof proof.

Maybe it would help if the seller says something like “click the word approval under my name to go to my new book.”

Also you can’t cut and paste links on some devices like my iPad so I really appreciate that this is done for me.

Also, when you are looking at a seller's approval book, there is a button "All Books For This Seller" on every page.
