  1. I additionally promote on Amazon handmade, UK solely

    Fees are 12% plus VAT, and at my pricepoints, it is barely cheaper for me than Etsy, there aren’t any itemizing/relisting charges, only a straight price for the sale.

    I’ve been promoting right here practically 5 years, I promote worldwide right here, I’ve been promoting on AH lower than a yr, to UK solely, and my gross sales there, are actually greater than right here. People have heard of Amazon, they usually promote, they’ve a better conversion price, individuals are shopping for not simply shopping.

    I believe it is nice to diversify, and to not have all of your “eggs in 1 basket”, promoting on each is much less traumatic too, if one website will get an issue

    Good luck with what you determine to do

  2. Amazon Handmade is 12% plus VAT, which works out to 14.4%, but there are no other feees, like listing fees

    Etsy is 4% plus 20p, plus 5%, plus 16p listing, all plus 20%
    That’s 10.8%, plus 43p
    If your total selling price is £10, then that is 15.1%
    if your total selling price is £20, then that is 13%

    If you ever re-list without selling on etsy, it bumps up the costs too, so it depends on your pricepoints, and how often you re-list because you have run out of the 4 months.

    It’s definitely worth it for me

  3. I had a store at Ebay–went properly for awhile after which my space was flooded with low cost junk ammolite jewellery set in pretend silver which smothered my listings.All Ebay cared about was quantity listers and gave hem preferene.So I left and arrange my very own web site at http://www.ammolitejewelry.com which has grown properly and is now my most important vendor.

    I began an Etsy store which which went well–very good in 2018– I’ve it nonetheless however extra lately the junk sellers have arrived from Ebay and are beginning to flood Etsy in my class.Again Etsy is giving desire to quantity sellers and my prime quality gadgets are usually not displaying in paid advertisements like they used to–sales fell by means of the ground this January.I hope they may get well however luckily my on-line web site goes from power to strength–so it doesnt actually matter.

    If issues dont search for at Etsy I’ll merely give the cash I’m spending right here to Google to extend my Google advertisements spend.

    Best Advice.

    If you might be promoting larger priced high quality stuff–start your individual web site and purchase google phrase advertisements and be affected person.

  4. Ebay began tanking(and it is getting even worse). I fled and got here right here in 2014. issues went good till 2017. I left for one yr and got here again to search out this website as dangerous as there. But sure, the junk silver,jewellery, charms, and in every single place. Maybe consumers actually dont need a website overloaded with 99 cent junk? in order that they depart too?
