I just opened up a new account here. Need a new basket, instead of putting all the eggs in one, especially with the new system over there in Etsy.... If you know what I mean ;)
I'm trying to get familiar with the system here, which is not too complicated and quite similar to Etsy's. It reminds me of the old Etsy, which I like =)
Are you an Etsian?
I know I am =)
Hi Everybody! I just got here.
Huey, would you be willing to share where you got your domain?
I'm a buyer only but I am no longer going to spend a penny over at Etsy, I'm building up my wish list here and look forward to making my first purchase soon:)
As I'm not a seller, I'm not exactly sure how easy it is to do but, I think it looks a lot better when the seller has their shop link at the top of their page as opposed to the bottom...it's much easier to find that way and more visible:)
Do you go by a nickname? I'm just wondering if you are the one I convoed with a bit this past week through our Buntique shop on Etsy? If so, glad to see you here!
I've heard from a few buyers like yourself that aren't very happy with what's going on with Etsy. Nice to see you here. It's a great venue, and one that I feel I can be proud to be a part of. Happy shopping! :o)
I don't know I just don't get these forums .. how do I find m y last post, how do I find people that responded? Do I have to go through 76 pages of posts>? Plus how do I turn off getting an email every time someone posts in a thread I posted in? this is going to drive me crazy and I think the reason I left zibbet the last time! I8 have no idea if I am responding to the person above me or just replying to the thread!
Right above this discussion you will see how you shut off the reply message....it says "Don't email me when people reply". Go to the top to see "My Page" to see your posts and responses.
I am from Etsy too. I've been there since 2006. I have a fairly successful shop there and I don't plan to close it until I can make up the difference somewhere else. BUT that doesn't mean that I'm not disappointed in the direction they seem to be going. I'm still in shock over the entire thing. I do plan to make this my main "venue" site and I have a Weebly website as well--just working on the shopping cart to get that up and running. I have seen the screen shots of the future rebuild here and I think it looks great. I hope that happens soon because I think it will attract more buyers and sellers to the site.
I do have my Etsy mini in my shop here but I thought it was a good idea to let people know that I have selling experience . Should I take it out and just state in my shop announcement that I have been on Etsy since 2006? I am also planning to contact some of my supply sellers and see if they will set up over here too. Can't hurt.
I have found the import tool easy to work with here and I had no problem getting over 50 items in my shop and I plan to add a few more everyday as time permits. I am also going to add new designs here only and see if that helps with new buyers. I've also started Facebook ads at $5 a day to try and get more fans so I have more chance of selling directly from my Facebook page. I've already added 176 new followers in 2 days and I plan to do this for at least a month! All of this change is keeping me very busy. I never planned for this or even envisioned it happening but Etsy has forced my hand. Anyway, I am very happy to be here and I hope it will be a good thing for all of us! Kitty
I think it's best to remove your Etsy mini. You could put a little blurb in your shop announcement like "Selling online since 2006" I've seen shops with a special widget that displays feedback from other venues.
That's a good idea to contact your suppliers to have them open up shop here. With the Etsy importer and the free premium trial coupon all they are gambling with is time, which should pay off.
Welcome to the new zibbet shops. I sell on a few venues including etsy. I've been here as a premium account since '10, etsy since '08.
It's a welcome philosophy here...always a kind word.
I'm building my shop inventory here as well and reactivated since vacation. New listings daily. Hope to see you on twitter, etc. Happy sales!
Hi Judy! How is Zibbet doing for you?
Hello everyone! I am one of those Etsy sellers (since 2008) fed up with their one-way brilliant ideas, lol.
I first opened a Zibbet shop back in 2010 and set up most of it but I really never finished it and it went dormant. I contacted Zibbed to see if I could have my old shop back and within a couple of hours I got a reply and was able to sign into my old account, thank you very much, I really appreciate it.
