How 'bout a guestbook page -- with an offer that "if we use your comments on our front page, we'll send you a free t-shirt"? That should inspire people to give us all sorts of good comments we can use in other places besides the front page.

How about Online Gift Certificates? You specify an amount and put in your credit card # (or mail your check or whatever). For security, you can specify the shipping address in advance if you want. The store automatically generates a password for the recipient to use when placing their order. The gift amount becomes an open account for the recipient -- e.g. if it's $40 and they spend $35, they have $5 credit towards another order. (Perhaps we would have a policy of crediting this back to the giver if not used within 3 months.)

One major advantage of this to us is that we could deposit the money long before shipping, and have it available to pay for the order.

Probably won't have time to implement this year. (Do other stores have anything like this?)

Later,
