Has anyone used the Paypal Shops to sell goods/services?

I use Paypal to handle on-line transactions, but was wondering about being part of the Paypal Shops. I'm not sure if it's just a ploy by PayPal to get people to invest with them. I want to know if there's some real benefit.
I'm wondering if anyone has tried it and what the results were. Did it increase sales any? Is it worth it?

Please no rants about not using Paypal or talk about other payment services. I use Paypal and have no plans of changing and simply wish to know if some folks have tried selling items via the Paypal Shops.

I know from just looking at the PayPal shops it's not the most "attractive" on-line mall in the world. Just some basic groupings and simple lists of site names with short descriptions and a link to the site.

It does not look like an area that draws buyers.

Hey folks....

I'm traveling on business and will be meeting with PayPal later today.

If anyone has any business or strategy questions that I can pass on for you please feel free to send me a PM and I'll do my best to get your answer.

I started a thread last week regarding the fraud in my account and their so far meak reaction. It has been 4-5 days since I reported that someone had gone into my account, changed my passwords to lock me out and is sending money out of the account. I put a freeze on the account, but no one has contacted me from their fraud division. You can tell them that their tech may be impressive but their human intervention procedures are terrible.
