When you start a small business, you have to make about a thousand and one decisions. Logo options, colors, what you should name it, and (many, many) more. If you are a maker, you will likely find yourself asking this question… should I sell my products on Etsy or on my own website? After having done both, I have a few tidbits to share, that might be helpful!
First things first, make sure you are eligible to sell on Etsy. Etsy is a marketplace for handmade items, vintage finds, and craft supplies. If your products fall into one of those categories, then you are in! (If you are questioning, you can find more info here.) After that, weigh the pros and cons of each platform to make your decision.
