New online shop with completely no fees!!!
Ok, I finally found a site that is totally free!! No listing fees, commission fees, NADA!! Of course I had to completely set it up, and because it will only let you use one pic for your listing, I have had to use paint to resize and put multiple pix together into one, but it's worth it with no fees.
It's still work in process, but please check it out.
Artfire is free for a basic membership now. It used to not be.
yola website builder? its the only thing i could find on the site. is that it?
Yeah Ginger that's it.
I have checked out artfire Traci, but isn't there a listing limit and commission fee for that basic membership? Those are a few of the many reasons I decided to just make my own site. Hope it works out, so far it's going well.
Their site says says "No Listing/Final/Hidden Fees"
And I never had to put any credit card, or pay pal info in for billing.
Your site looks nice though.
Ok then, but like I said those were "a few of the many" reasons I didn't go with artfire, I also just didn't like the feel of it the listing limit is twelve active at a time. Besides, when going through sites like that, you browse other shops to find something specific, I just rather customers being able to find what they are looking for in my shop, so no competition! Of course, if I don't have it listed, I can get it and even do custom orders. So once I'm done with the listing and finish setting it up, I will start the advertising of it.
I understand what youre saying. I left Etsy because of the competition. There is just too many people on there who are just as good, and many who are better jewelery makers than I am.
I might make my own site since I can make doubles of everything I have listed. It seems like a good idea.
Thanks for letting us know about the free web hosting. Its good advice.
No problem, but be aware if you do start one, it takes a little more thinking on how you want to set it up and list stuff. Good luck!
