For all those who are deciding on whether or not to open a Shopify or any really simple online store I recommend Etsy.
Etsy has come a long way and has improved tremendously over the last little while in making the store owners successful. With easy click to sales and other goodies it has really made huge strides in helping to make even the newest online members have the best chance of selling their products online.
What is really nice about it now is that you can view the sale before you even purchase and Item. Before it would adjust once you clicked on the item. It offers the viewer a chance to see the great discount available to them per store. Another eye catching feature that entices the view to buy!
And for as little as 20 cents a item, putting many is easy and cheap! Also a really nice feature about Etsy is the New shop manager in your store which keeps everything at your fingertips. Such as promoted listings, finances, etc.
You can check how many people have viewed your store and what items seem to be a hit.
And if you are interested in Promoting your listings with Etsy who is with Google you can for a little as a $1 a day!
They have also taken a new approach to tracking ad performance. Currently, we attribute sales to an ad in two cases:
A buyer clicks on an ad for your item, then purchases that item within 30 days
A buyer clicks on an ad for an item, then purchases any item from your shop within 24 hours.
Starting 4 October, they will attribute sales to an ad when:
A buyer clicks on an ad for an item, then purchases any item from your shop within 30 days.
So overall I am pretty pleased with the way Etsy has changed for the better making sales easier to obtain!
