I've been deliberating this for a while now, but I have finally decided to say goodbye to Etsy and cut my losses. I've been listing my items on Etsy since February I think and haven't had one sale from it. On the other hand my Australian based shop on Made It has been getting attention and sales. So what conclusions do I draw from that? Too much competition in the US? Are my items overpriced for the US market? Is the postage cost too high? Is the delivery time too long? Are people preferring to support home grown businesses as opposed to going overseas?
Anyone had a similar experience? I'd be interested in your thoughts.
I'll leave what I have on there until they expire. Meanwhile I will focus on putting new designs into my Made It shop. I am still happy to post overseas, you'll just need to purchase off of Made It instead.
Now onto a couple of new designs I listed in my Made It shop:
Introducing the Cheeky Monkeys!! This one can be personalised instead of the word 'Cheeky' if you prefer.
And also the Rainbow 'Age' tee, I'm happy to do any number you like :
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
