Hi,

I was just wondering if it is only mainly people from the US that are using Etsy. I'm based in Dublin, Ireland and I'm wary of putting up stuff that would be really expensive to post and would take ages to get there as it seems all the etsy shops I've come across have been based in the US.

It'd be great to hear from anyone based in europe that uses etsy to sell their wares!

Thanks

Clare

Hi, I'm not from Europe, but I'm from Asia. I've seen many people from Asia do a good job with selling on Etsy. It's not just a place from US residents.

I encourage you to give it a try Smiley

Hi Scruffster

I am in England and have just started listing on Etsy. Only done 2 as my internet is being tempremental, but I know of a friend who sells alot to the US via Etsy. It's a shame they don't do or Euros, everything is in $, but give it a go, it's cheap and you get your own website address thing, so if you do a fair you can give out cards and they can go direct to your shop when online.

I am in Canada and I have done really well selling on Etsy. The biggest difference that I have found between Etsy and the "other on-line place" is that the majority of buyers on Etsy are looking at what they really love instead of trying to score a great deal. They buy what they like. And if they want an item then they are prepared to pay a bit more for shipping and wait a bit longer.

I'm located in Canada and I'm having a great time with my Etsy shop!  I've purchased items from around the world before on Etsy - you are able to set the shipping prices yourself so people can expect to pay a little bit more for overseas and will know this in advance - on the flip side of things, I have sold many items to people in the UK so you will probably get some more local sellers, too!

Best of luck with your shop!

Nope, I'm in Canada and I see lots of international shops. However, I do find that most buyers are in the US

I am in the UK and have been on etsy since August this year.  It is slow at the moment but I have had 6 sales so far.  I have come across quite a few people that are based out side of the States so I would give it a go and see what happens
