After reading this I so understand why it is so hard to get my items sold on etsy. I have sold a ton on ebay and that is a real pain too. But i really had no Idea the etsy site was that way Thank you all for the info.
that is too bad. but i would hope you keep selling not every sale is terrible. I also think you should add a little money for packaging supplies also. Remember it is your time and effort also not just supply cost.
Oh I know those kinds of people. I had a lot on eBay too. I just think they do not realize how long it takes and what detail goes into your making a bag. I hand paint my wings with images in several layers so a discount is not usually something i can do.
