nessarose: I say spread out your listings throughout the week. 1 or 2 listing every couple of days will insure you stay at the top of the new listings and searches. If you list everything in one day, its likely your stuff will get lost quickly with all the listings etsy has on a daily basis. 1 or 2 listings every couple of days should be good.  Smiley

HSG: okay, let me see if I understand this. The apron buyer is in the US, but she wants you to ship the item to an address in Canada instead? Is it a gift?
In my opinion, if this is the case, you should ship the item to her and have her ship it to whomever in canada. If she does want to pay you extra to ship it to canada, they by all means do it that way. You shouldn't have to foot the extra costs to ship it elsewhere, she should pay you to do that.

Thank you for the reply Smiley

She did not say if it was a gift, only that she was buying for someone else and ship to Canada. I don't mind international shipping at all, I just think she should pay the appropriate amount.

Hope she doesn't cause any problems over this.

Curious - is hers a confirmed billing address? If not, it could be a new paypal account and it might be something to be cautious about. I am not saying this is the case, but credit card thieves will ask you to ship items to an alternate address.

Send her a paypal request for payment for the difference and let her know that you will be happy to ship out the apron, just as soon as you receive the funds.

Hey all!
I stumbled across this forum, and thought maybe you would be interested in it. Its all other online sellers/crafters. I have found some good information on it so far. Not sure if this has been posted here before. If it has, just ignore  Wink

Her Paypal addy is confirmed, and she is a seller on Etsy. That was another reason I am surprised she has done this. But I will take your advice, and send her an invoice for the shipping amount. Especially since she has not responded to my last convo.

I wish we had someway to verify convo reciepts. As it is now we can only take someones word they did not get it.

I think the listings speak for themselves.
I would really love to know what you think of them!
(Ow, and as far as shipping costs are concerned: their actual shipping costs to the US are 28 dollars, so I am eating quite a chunk of that myself...)

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

not too shabby, still a bit slow, but things are picking up. I've added some new items (banners & other graphic work) and people seem to really like those services, that's what selling the most. I also added prints, which I've sold 2 of since I listed them, so that's pretty cool. I like that Etsy still allows the open edition prints, it lets people get cool art at great prices!

Always could be better, during Feb I was selling about one thing a week, which was pretty decent, for me, since I had like months of dry spell hah!
