Etsy.com. Etsy is one of the world’s largest online shopping sites for handmade goods. It lets you start your own “shop” for free—without having to figure out how to build a website. This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I explain how to sell your wares through Etsy, and host a shopping cart on that site.
You’re allowed to sell three kinds of items on Etsy: handmade goods, vintage items, and craft supplies. Etsy handles everything for you. It costs 20 cents to list an item for four months, or until it sells. When you make a sale, Etsy charges a 3.5 percent fee on the sale. To start a shop, all you need is a valid credit card and a product!
In the first video, I show you how easy it is to set up an Etsy shop to start selling your items. I walk you through the options to customize your shop, and then show you how to add your first product.
