Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade and antique things, as well as craft materials, and it is THE place for creatives to shop. Consider it an online craft show.
Why should you sell on Etsy?
- What makes Etsy different from eBay or Amazon?
- eBay’s consumer base is often significantly less forgiving than Etsy’s, and eBay’s business strategy favors cut-throat pricing, whereas Etsy shoppers are more inclined to pay a premium.
- Etsy’s costs are also less expensive and easier to handle than Amazon’s handcrafted program, and opening a legitimate business on Etsy is easier than on eBay.
Fees on Etsy
- It’s free to start an Etsy store, and each item you list costs $20. There is a 5% transaction charge (which includes delivery) and a payment processing cost of 3% of the total plus a flat fee of $25 when you sell an item. You may pay extra to have your listings promoted on Etsy, just like you can on Google.
