Five Places to Sell Your Crafts Online

Blog October 2, 2019

Selling your handmade crafts is so much fun and is quite profitable if done correctly. Unfortunately, most people think they need to head out to a local craft show or flea market to sell their wares and do not consider the internet as an option. This is not a good business practice today.

Due to the internet and the widespread advertising offered through many companies anyone can sell their craft items online without ever leaving their house. So, what are you waiting for? Get started selling your homemade products right away with the suggestions below.

eBay

For those who want to stick with the flea market feel, eBay offers a variety of options for selling your crafts. Choose to sell your handcrafted items at a fixed price in the marketplace or list your crafts for auction and allow customers to bid instead. If you have a large amount of finished products on hand, consider opening a store on eBay. List your products at fixed prices in your store for a lower fee.

Etsy

Built with crafters in mind, Etsy offers free stores and low priced listings. Sell any of your handcrafted items for any price you like. You are able to sell craft supplies, as well, so feel free to list your leftover items. Take good photographs of your crafts and write a description worthy of a catalog for the best results in selling your products.

Craigslist

Create an advertisement for your craft business to place on Craigslist, just as you would a newspaper ad. Promote your products with photographs and a description along with a link to your website or any contact information you like.

Local Newspapers

Most local newspapers have websites that offer the same services as their paper. Many allow you to post advertisements online for a small fee and some are even free. Write a promotional advertisement for your craft business or even one specific product. Do not forget to include your contact information so people know how to contact you.

Your Own Website

If you have already tried the above venues and feel you still want to expand your presence online, consider building your own website with a storefront. Start out using a pre-built website from any web hosting company you prefer. Purchase your own domain name and upload your products to the website. Promote your website on all business stationery, advertisements and product information for the best results.
