If you love to create things from the heart and want to turn your thoughts into something beautiful, Etsy home decor may be the right choice for you. Etsy is such a large platform, with literally thousands of items available, that it’s not always easy to make a choice. However with a little bit of searching and time spent browsing through what’s on offer, you will indeed discover some truly beautiful and hidden treasures, both exclusive to individual sellers and those who have set up an Etsy shop as an outlet for selling handmade goods. There is also a lot of helpful advice and resources available to help you get started with selling on Etsy, and to help you sell the best quality items.
The first thing you need to do to start selling on Etsy is create a shop. Just sign up for a free account, check your email, select a username and click send. Once your Etsy account is live, it’s worth registering a few more shopping accounts so you can take advantage of all the various shopping tools available at Etsy. Look for tutorials to show you how to use drop-down menus, how to create and edit product lists, how to upload photos and videos, how to add PayPal buttons and how to publish your shop online. It takes a while to become familiar with all the essential tools and features of Etsy, so it’s worth spending the time to learn them and get your Etsy shop up and running smoothly.
Etsy is one of the top destinations for selling handmade and unique products including vintage home furnishings, knick knacks, jewelry, rare antiques and paintings. But even though Etsy offers a wide choice of products, they don’t accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations, and most sellers list their shipping costs and fees upfront when you pay for your shipping. So you may need to budget your sales and your profits differently if you decide later that you don’t want to sell on Etsy. But if you’re already on eBay, for example, you’ve probably gotten used to dealing with buyers who need to be contacted by a little later to make sure they can get their goods in a reasonable amount of time. Keep in mind that most Etsy buyers are also savvy Internet shoppers, so it’s possible that they’ll also appreciate being able to purchase products from you without having to wait for a return address and to have their items shipped directly to their homes.
