Etsy is a great place to sell Handmade Goods, Vintage Finds and Craft Supplies. You can even connect POD services like Printify to your Etsy shop. I LOVE how simple and fast it is to create a listing (unlike that other marketplace that starts with an E).

One thing I struggled with when I first started using Etsy in 2014 was the finances. At the time, it was definitely a struggle keeping track of costs, shipping, etc. They put a lot of thought into this area however and they went and did a complete reorganization, making it super easy to understand and find the information you want. I love that right at the top of the Finances page is a current months Net Profit total (currently mine is red 😂, but I still have a small number of 1 of kind items listed – the more time I dedicate to it and the more items I have listed, I know that will change).

Even with an upcoming 1.5% increase in transaction fees, Etsy listing prices are straight forward and low. 20cents to list an item for 4 months, plus the transaction fee if an item sells. Shipping costs are reduced if you purchase your labels within the platform. Truly – they’ve got everything covered and it’s just a beautifully easy selling experience.
