Brief updates

A couple notes from the entries we've received thus far:

Remember this ad is for our sellers. We're convincing them to sign up for a store on our website.

More detail you can try to work in: that we won first place in EcommerceBytes Seller Survey for "ease of use" over the last two years (google it if this doesn't make sense :))

Overall a few really good entries so far.
