I keep seeing this site advertized on Facebook. Has anyone tried it? I was thinking of joining but wanted to see if it's worth signing up to first.
I have been looking for a good Etsy alternative that doesn't charge so much.
I looked it over, and I'm not impressed, lol. But I haven't tried selling anything there. I just signed up, and it seems really crazy to try and navigate. After Tophatter I am not really actively trying to sell anything, even though I am still creating new jewelry. I did come across an upcoming site called Craft Cafe, that isn't even fully up and running yet, but I have been watching it closely for a few months. Its going to be a site like if you combined the ease of running a facebook store, and the traffic/style of an Etsy store. Its all about handmade, they say they are going to be super strict on re-sellers and people passing things off as handmade that just aren't. You will only have to pay a monthly or yearly fee for your store, and thats it, no transaction charges, no listing fees. SO that seems awesome! anyway they have a craft cafe FB page, but also a sellers page, where they are putting out the info as it comes for people interested in selling. They do tonz of giveaways for fans and sellers to get people interested in the site opening up, should be pretty soon! they said spring to summer of 2012. And they are taking early registration so you can pre pay for your first month/year and reserve your shop name heres some links
let me know if you try out that copious site though
Well, I signed up to Copious... that site looks like a total mess! It isn't any prettier than Yardsellr. lol
But craftcafe sounds really exciting!
Fantastic ladies!! ^_^ I've been hasitating with opening the shop on Etsy since quite a time..due to the same...the charges esp. ...
Am happy that there is also an alternative yayy! Am gonna have a look, well curious
there is talk of outbid, a place like tophatter, and another company like tophatter in the works. 2 more auction sites to try out
