I have an Etsy shop where I sell the things I make, when I’m not doing local craft shows. Recently, Etsy changed their rating system and it actually hurts the seller now. I wont go into detail about it here, but you can look it up if you’re curious. Anyway, sellers are jumping ship and moving to other sites. I’m considering doing the same. I’ve had very few sales in the three years I’ve been on Etsy and while I do have a 100% rating, that could change drastically with one sale. I’m not pleased with their changes, and I’m really considering moving to another site.
I did have my own website for a while, but it seems that as a crafter, you have to spend a small fortune to get any traffic, and I just don’t have that kind of endless cash flow.
So, while I haven’t made any decisions yet, I am looking at other sites, seeing what options are out there. Please feel free to chime in if you know of any sites similar to Etsy where someone can sell their handmade wares.
