I was accepted to Amazon Handmade

I make area of interest issues – principally celtic and bridal items. I seemed on the charges they’d take out and it blew my hair again.

Does anybody discover success as a really handmade artisan making their very own items on Amazon?

Because, and never to sound catty, I noticed a number of manufactured stuff claiming to be “handmade” as a result of somebody glued a bead on it.

Forgive any conceitedness if it comes out that manner it is simply I’m a bench jeweler and it is simply not in the identical class as different forms of meeting work.

  1. Their fees are higher than Etsy & they take awhile to deposit the $ale, but they do get a TON of traffic, so you just might find buyers for your high end work? Good luck!

  2. I made a sale in early Feb ($1500) and I didn’t get paid till mid March. They estimated shipping – Australia to US at four weeks (it took ten days) and then added another two weeks.

  3. a 1500.00 sale for a brand new vendor is out of the norm. Amazon holds new sellers funds till the shopper will get the merchandise (and time to ensure they do not return it) to make certain the shopper would not get scammed. They solely do it for brand new sellers that promote lots proper off the bat; or sellers which have a excessive greenback sale earlier than they’ve confirmed themselves

  4. Etsy is my predominant love, however Amazon is big! I feel you’ll do fairly effectively there as your prospects do store there! Negatives are the (horrible) charges, and I can’t stand their return insurance policies now we have to comply with. There appear to be extra unhealthy eggs on Amazon versus Etsy, however nonetheless, I discover it value it. I do not discover myself excited to promote on there like I do Etsy, in all probability partially as a result of they solely pay you each 2 weeks. Etsy I’ve a love-dislike relationship, whereas Amazon is a like-hate. Something that helped me fairly a bit on Amazon Handmade was providing free delivery.

  5. Because, and to not sound catty, I noticed lots of manufactured stuff claiming to be “handmade” as a result of somebody glued a bead on it.They do this right here too. It’s known as “embellishing,” and that deems it as “handmade.”

  6. Just keep in mind in Amazon’s TOUs the merchandise needs to be priced beneath each different platform the piece is offered. So you may’t try to claw again Amazon’s charges with the next revenue margin.

  7. Don’t let the Amazon charges fool you. They additionally embody bank card processing, which we pay additional for right here. The charges between AH and Etsy are fairly shut when you think about there are not any itemizing charges or bank card charges there.Regarding Michelle’s remark that the costs need to be decrease, that is true. But some individuals get round it by not promoting the very same factor there. They could add one thing small to their Amazon itemizing or change it just a bit.Many individuals do significantly better there than right here.

  8. I’ve bought many lamp shade frames right here on Etsy, plus just a few glass shades. I do not promote on ebay. Sometimes, on low worth objects, my charges are almost 20%, excluding itemizing/re-listing charges. Like Heather, I do not do PL or anything to incur additional costs. Just had a sale to Washington this morning and so they additionally take charges on the gross sales tax, despite the fact that we do not truly obtain it. I feel that is an actual bummer!the charges are too excessive.
