default Etsy experience?

Post by MrsC on 11th February 2011, 7:56 pm

Just wondering - has anyone on here had any experience using Etsy to sell things?

Can I recommend folksy as being the british version. Makes sales a lot more easy when working in the same currency/posting in the same country

Not tried it, been very tempted though. I was put off at first because everything was in USD, but now they recognise that I'm in Aussie and the AUD is shown. Mind you at the moment it's pretty much on par.
We have an Aussie version too madeit. I would prefer to support the Aussie version so might be good for you to suppory Folksy for yourself?
What I didn't like was having to add about 35c per item to my price to list. So instead I no seell through my blog once a month and at an online crafters market at my fave scrapbooking forum once a month too.

I've bought odds and ends from them before and have had good experiences. I'm in the process of setting up shop (yippee!!) and know several people who sell on there. They really enjoy it. Their admin have loads of helpful info and if you register just to shop, you can choose several newsletters to be sent to you which will give you a good idea of how things work. If you're thinking of selling, try taking a peek at their blog The Storque (http://www.etsy.com/storque/) and their Etsy Seller Handbook (http://www.etsy.com/storque/seller-handbook/) Very Happy

Hope this helps!

Of course, you can sell through our very own Marketplace as well - though a much smaller audience than Etsy and Folksy

Jenner - very useful thank you.

Badger - not forgetting here, but thinking of selling some vintage stuff which Etsy cover and probably isn't appropriate here.
