I’ve just opened up an Etsy shop for on-line selling. People have been able to buy from my personal site for some time but the experience, although nicely personal, seems a little clunky to me. The Etsy interface gives me, and the potential customer, some nice advantages:
- Pay by credit/debit card or PayPal
- Easier to specify the size you want
- Much less confusing for the buyer to specify which picture they want
- The ability for me to show shots of the picture in a frame alongside the full size image
Also, for me, it gives me some extra exposure as Etsy is a very popular site for people looking for hand-made arts and crafts. Why don’t you pop over and take a look? It would be nice to get some view statistics that weren’t either me or my wife 🙂 And comments and feedback would be most welcome.
