Are you new to Etsy or just passing through the forums asking, “What is Shoppers Paradise BnR BnS about?” or “What does BnR or BnS mean?” These are good questions and hopefully we can answer them.
BnR/BnSs are one of the many promotional business tools used on Etsy’s Internet Venue in their Promotional Forum that helps you to promote your small Internet business.
There are hundreds of thousands of shops on Etsy so to narrow it down and getting lost in the Etsian Sea of Shops these particular threads were created to bring together active shop sellers into groups. These groups are called a BnS or BnR (explained below) and offer a Mini Mall Community of shops. Both BnRs and BnSs are different and are sometimes used together for promotional purposes such as Shoppers Paradise BnR BnS.

♥ BnS (Buy and Stay)
This is a thread that you would normally buy from one or more shops in the BnS group. By purchasing from these shops, your shop gets to be part of this group as a whole and be shopped by others in the group as well as having outside purchases. This will increase your shops sales.
Each BnS group has rules to join and these can differ like night and day! Most have a minimum purchase amounts to join the group so read the rules and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
These groups are a great way to interact with other shop owners and create a mini mall like atmosphere for shoppers and sellers to become acquainted with one another and develop a small community in this venue.

♥ BnRs (Buy and Replace)
Here are examples of 3 basic BnRs:
1) A BnR Treasury has 16 shops featured and is used for shop promotion to gain exposure for your shop by having buyers view your featured shop. When bought from your shop is removed and the buyers shop replaces yours in the treasury. *See rules for each bnr treasury.
2) A BnR Thread features shops in the same way as a bnr treasury but will normally have more shops in its groups list. Used for shop promotion to gain exposure for your shop by having buyers view the featured shops on the list. When your shop is bought from your shop is normally removed and that buyers shop replaces yours on the list. *See rules for each bnr thread.
3) A BnR/BnS Thread is normally combination of both of the above. Shoppers Paradise uses both the Thread and Treasuries for shop promotions to gain exposure for the group as a whole. Shops who are interested in joining the group view featured shops on the groups list to purchase from. Once they make their purchase that NEW shop is now part of that group. When your shop is bought from your shop may or may not be removed depending on the rules.
NOTE: Not all BnRs or BnSs are the same!

Shopper Paradise BnR BnS has rules as do most BnRs and BnSs and these rules are moderated by the groups ListMasters and ListHelpers, helping to enforce them for the benefit of the group. We are innovative and always thinking of new ways to promote our group! You can now follow us on Paradise BnR Twitter and our Paradise BnR Blog
