Selling on different sites

Well, they do say you should never put all your eggs in one basket.  So, with that in mind I searched around and came across an American site called Art Fire.  With a remarkable likeness to Etsy.com this site is very user friendly.  At the moment there is an offer when joining to become a verified member by subscribing with $7 a month instead of the usual $20.  For this you are allowed 10 pictures to show off your item, you can join a blog/forum as well as there being a handy system which allows you to offer a discount to your customers of a pre agreed percentage to start at a specified date in the month.  In addition there are loads more extras to enjoy.  Even as a ‘free’ member you can enjoy 4 free pictures and many other exciting things.  Check out the site http://artfire.com and have a look at my shop http://onawhimsey.artfire.com See what you think.  It does appear to be easier to post and organise.

In addition I know they advertise heavily which is something Etsy tend to be slow to do.  This being one of the gripes which often comes up in forums etc.

As I said, it is always good to have your eggs in more than one basket!

  2. I’m still on the fence about artfire, I just worry that I won’t have any sales and still have to pay the fee.
