Esty  -  for People With Creative Skills

For People With Creative Skills

Etsy is a great place to showcase and sell your home-made crafts, your artwork, your recycle projects, your craftsmanship.

If you know how to crochet, knit, paint a picture, string some beads, weld together some cool looking piece of art, then you can sell on this great marketplace.

If you can piece together some pieces of cloth and end up with a beautiful quilt or wall hanging then you can make money from your sewing skill.

If you are an artist, and can create art by drawing, sketch, create with watercolor, oil paint, or any other form of artistry skill, then you also can sell your work here.

Can you make med evil ironwork, mardi gras costumes, Halloween costumes? Do you love Vintage clothing? Are you skilled at origami? Do you have a closet,storage room, or garage filled with your arts and crafts? Then, if you would like to make some money from your talents, Esty maybe the right place for you.

Etsy began in 2005, by artist, Rob Kalen, who thought there could be a place on the internet to sell his artwork. He also realized if he needed a place to showcase his work, then there must be other people, who would benefit from a community type website to sell their art or craft. People come from over the world can set up shop here. It doesn't matter where you live as long as you can mail or post your work to customers. About 200 different countries make purchases at Esty every year. So there is plenty of opportunity to sell your art or craft.

To set up a shop on their website, you first have to register at Etsy. After confirming your account, you need to log in and at the top of the page you will see a link to become a seller on this marketplace. Click on the seller link and it will take you to another page.

The new page will ask you to choose a language and currency to use on your page. Say you live in Japan and want to sell in Japan you could choose to list in your native language and use the currency of Japan. If after setting up your store, you can add other languages and currency, if you wanted to.

Then you will need to set up different parts of the shop. You will need to choose a name for your shop. You may have to try different ones, if the name you want is already being used. I suggest looking around the website, to get an ideal of what others chose for their shop name.

You will then need to list your first item for sale. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so take a good picture of your work for sale, you just need to add one item to get your store up and running, then you can come back later and add more items.

Don't be overwhelmed by the details, there are tutorials to help you get set up.

Next you have to choose payment options. They have several options available, such as PayPal, credit cards, checks or money orders.

Then you have to enter a payment method. A bank account or credit card, depending on what country you live in.

Don't be worried about the fees to sell on Esty.

The fees are very reasonable and are necessary to pay for the cost of the website, the servers and all the people who help to keep the website up and running.

Fees are in the insert above.

So if you are the creative sort of person and would like to sell your craft work, your art, your sculptures, your hand-made jewelry, your quilts or whatever it is that you do. Etsy is a great place to go. The people who make up Esty, are all there for the same reason. They will help you if you have questions. They will give you support if you need it. They have a forum for their community of artists, to answer any questions you may have or just to meet new people and exchange ideals.
