1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Website shipping options on: January 25, 2008 09:02:31 AM
So.. I've had my site up for a few months, right?  I've had TONS of views, but no one has purchased anything.  So yesterday, while I was horribly bored at work, I decided to see if it was something in the checkout that was causing lack of sales.

I "purchased" a lip balm tub, which literally weighs 1/2 an ounce.  The checkout process was fine up until I got to the shipping section.  Oh wow... My choices were - $4.60, $6.29 and $19.50 for a $3.00 tub of lip balm!?!??!?! 

My question is... If you own your own website (not an ebay store, yahoo store), what do you use for shipping?

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Fed up with Etsy? on: June 17, 2007 06:56:22 AM
I'm pretty much done with the site, and I've cut my prices so I can clear out my inventory.  I'm not listing anything new or renewing any of my expired items.

Here's why:

1.  When they released V2, they ruined the Christmas selling season.
2.  They're charging more for less time when the site doesn't even work 1/3 of the time.
3.  They're throwing all these big parties, when most of us can't go, and  the site isn't working properly. 
4.  The constitution. 
5.  A severe lack of nice people in the forums.  I can barely stand to go there anymore.
6.  Overrun with Bath & beauty.
7.  Whenever there is a discussion of bath & beauty in the forums, it always comes down to people bashing melt & pour soaps.
8.  This is the straw that broke the camels back - "It may take a *few days* for items to show up"  Are you kidding me?  I pay money for a site that barely works, when there are plenty of sites that work better?

So yea, I'm sick & tired of being abused over there.
