Anyone sell on etsy?
I was wondering if anyone here ever sold anything on Etsy. Com. I believe they're selling fees are 3.5% instead of 15% like eBay. Although I listed some necklaces for a month and never sold a thing. Just wondering if anyone Has sold on there before?

IT COULD BE A VALUABLE PRIZE "YOU NEVER KNOW"
Could be not to many have heard of ..Etsy... I never did......... But would it not be better to sell on Ebay pay your fee and sell your item...... Than to sell on Esty for a cheap fee and never sell your item...

I was curious about that site and others. Is there particular categories or something they are making a name for themselves in?

I was thinking about selling on my eBay site but when I sell the item Mail a Card saying to check the Etsy site And offer discounted shipping or 5% off or something like that. 3.5% can be a big difference then 13-15% on some larger items. And I'm thinking maybe just listing straight coins and jewelry on the Etsy site.

I just started about a week ago. I sell predominantly vintage clothing, which etsy is fairly well known for. I've noticed people will pay a lot more on etsy than for equivalent items on ebay, it seems to be very focused on the photography and the sellers themselves. I haven't made a sale yet, but it's only been a week. I'll definitely keep this thread updated!

Cat teaches man, not everything here serves him.
I have a small etsy store and I have seen other members' stores and links too, in the past.
Seems like some folks do REALLY well, and others just trudge along. I'm still finding my niche, so to say. LOL!
I would say read there TOU's, what's allowed, etc, and check their forums, to see if they would maybe be a supplement to your ebay sales. Come visit my store or convo me over there too, if you like.
I had wondered if we might be able to make a sticky thread with folks ebay and etsy store names, those that have them. That is, if folks wanted there ebay or etsy names noted here, or not...... I kind of always thought, I would rather do online business with ppl I know, or know from somewhere, than with strangers. (I also want to start a seed swap here, but that's a whole nother subject).
I just think it's good when fellow forum folks are able to network and help each other. There are so many amazing ppl here that do amazing things.
eta: The only reason I have a link on my sig is because I am a paying charter member (would not be right to do it, if one was not a charter member, or didn't give t-net their dues imho. I don't self promote with emails, messages, "come see my store, blah blah b;ah", all over t-net. I appreciate the charter member benefits. Ya'll do know you can buy and sell things here on t-net in the classifieds also, just saying)

When people hear I resell the jewelry I buy at sales lots of people ask if I sell it on Etsy. I haven't looked into it much, as I'm still working on getting eBay down, so I'd also love to hear what people think of it.

To sell on ETSY, it either needs to be a handmade item, craft supplies or vintage (20 years or more).
