1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: March 20, 2007 02:29:30 PM
Hey, everyone! I have an issue brewing and wanted to get your take on it....

I sold one of my cat toys on March 14. Here's the listing: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5481213

So woot woot, super excited! The buyer didn't pay right away and didn't specify which toy she wanted, so as usual I sent an email saying thanks for the order and that I'd ship it as soon as she Paypal-ed me and told me which one she wanted. I sent it both by email and convo. She never responded, but few days later she paid. This was yesterday. So I sent her another email and convo, thanking her for payment and asking her which toy she wants.

Today, I still haven't heard a peep from her, either by email or convo. Looking at the original listing, I'm wondering if I made it clear enough that the toys are being sold separately. What should I do if I haven't heard from her within her 10-day limit? Or does the 10-day limit even apply to things other than sales? Does anyone have any experience with this?

You know what, though? I'm not even going to stress about it. Fred Flare has an account and posts photos all the time with their merch, including pricing and sales and everything. I have to believe that Flickr's not being too strict in enforcing that particular rule.

Lushbox = DA BOMB DIGGITY. And Luca is my hero.

Also, your icon is the funniest thing I'm gonna see all day. Smiley

Here's the response I got:

Hi Ciara,

Can you use a different tag?  Using the URL to your Etsy
store as your tag is like placing the link to your store on
each photo page and we'd prefer that you didn't do that.

Regards,
Ana

So I guess any sort of link to our stores is out of the question. I changed my tags to "etsy." Sad

Something green-themed, definitely! A 4-leaf clover or horseshoe or rainbow design? I'm crap when it comes to seasonal ideas, but your stuff is so cute, you'll think of something!

I LOOOVE your "Naughty Nancy" earrings, btw. Smiley

Hey all,
I'm thinking about running a St. Paddy's Day contest of some sort... from the 10th through the 17th (St. Paddy's Day), every item sold gets the purchaser 1 entry in a drawing....for....what?

What would a good prize be?

All of the items in my shop are under $15... I'm really not sure what kind of prize I should offer.... I was thinking of creating 1 pendant and 1 pair of earrings and giving the winner the choice of the 2.

Any ideas??

Cute mirrors, BeaG!

Serendipity, I would offer your apron buyer a choice -- ship it to her in the U.S. or invoice her separately for shipping to Canada. It's wonky that she didn't mention it at first, but I've made the same mistake -- got all caught up in the actual purchasing of an item that I forgot to include special instructions for where to ship it at the time of order. Of course, the thing I bought was for a friend who's also in the U.S. so it wasn't a problem for me or the seller.

Just be as upbeat and helpful-sounding as possible; giving her a choice will make it seem like you're doing all you can to help. (Which, I mean, you are.) Smiley

They're so cute! I love that you hung them on that statue to photograph them, too -- very unique.

My only suggestion is to re-photograph the sneaky kitty -- the shot that's up now is a little blurry. But otherwise, hooray! Smiley

Thanks, Kiwi! And congrats to Snowy and Rocka -- I love that Etsy offers more than just a place to sell things. You, too, can be a winner! Wink

Oh my gosh, I had no idea! I haven't been "blatantly" selling, but my Flickr photos of Etsy goods are always tagged "ciaralovesyou.etsy.com." I'm going to email them to see if that's okay -- I'll let you all know what I find out!

Those green armwarmers are to die for! The yarn looks all soft and comfy. If only I didn't live in Florida so I could get some use out of them.... Smiley

I've been lurking here for awhile while I work on new swag for my Etsy shop. Recently I've been obsessed with making little crocheted clutches - here's my favorite:



I don't know if you can tell, but it's a gunmetal silver with a lot of different colored sparkles in it when it hits the light: pink, blue, yellow. It's fancy-edgy! (I think so, anyway Smiley )

Anyway, there are two more in my Etsy shop - I'd love to know what you all think! Especially because one of my favorite yarn stores had a 20% off sale on everything in their store this weekend, and of course I spent a small fortune, so I'm verrrrry open to suggestions on how to tweak the next ones I make. Smiley
