    What kind of problems? I shop on Etsy and have a couple of friends who sell on Etsy. Maybe I could check with one of them and see if they are having similar problems.

    Yeah, I considered etsy, then looked thru all the rules and regs, and hangy strings.

    I have a friend who threw in the towel, but I can't remember why.

    HI,I looked up info regarding Etsy
    Etsy is a marketplace where sellers can advertise handmade items that are 20 yrs or older
    Ebay is a online auction place
    I hope this helps you Sue

    Pretty sure the sellers have to be 20 years old or older, not the items.
    Everything is always OK in the end. If it's not, then it's not the end!

    Yes. My husband and I had a shop with over 300 sales and almost the same 5 star reviews , we packed it in due to some of the rules.

    We used to ship our things out without insurance since it was much cheaper. Customers could pay for the insurance if they wanted but nobody ever did and we never had a problem with the postal service or dishonest customers. This gave us an advantage since shipping was so reasonable but there’s always that first dishonest customer and how Etsy chose to handle it was atrocious. We left and haven’t been back since. My husband might open up his own shop when he retires.

    I do admit though that it was actually fun selling crafts that you actually make and have people from all over the world purchase them. It offers a sense of pride.

    My daughter has an Etsy shop, selling home-made pet bandanas and accessories. She has purchased pierced earrings for me, and jewellery and others items for herself from several Etsy sites. So far, she is happy.
