Secure transactions, passionate sellers, and satisfied customers are all promised by etsy, an elegantly-designed online marketplace that can serve as your alternative to eBay.
While other marketplaces are absolutely jammed with whatever inventory the seller somehow acquires: electronics, a Johnny Bench baseball card from 1973, treadmills, jewellery, Etsy is different. It is the place for artisans, a digital market of hand-crafted goods and similar one-of-a-kind fare. Etsy tells us that its mission is to “re-imagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and satisfying world.” To that end, it does apply its profits and efforts to solving environmental issues.
It welcomes the user with a sharp, very visual design, very reminiscent of Pinterest, showing, with a larger highlighted image, an album of the wares of a particular store.
Etsy sellers are eligible to market handmade products, vintage items, and craft supplies.
Etsy sports a community of 30 million, and you can jump in without membership fees, paying a 20 cent fee per listing.
Setting up a store includes creating a profile that tells your story and sets you apart from others.
Etsy uses a direct payment system, with buyers using their credit cards, or alternately going with Paypal or similar modes.
Bonanza may turn out to be a situation that creates a spurt of wealth or opportunity for savvy sellers who head on over there to set up some retailing.
Transparency and simplicity are chief values of Bonanza, which attempts to be more seller-friendly than eBay. A seller on Bonanza sets up a “booth,” which we find friendly and down-to-Earth in a nice way. The user dives right in and selects a name for her booth, and then decides which payments to accept. From there, it’s a matter of uploading items to sell.
While we’re on the topic of uploading items to sell on Bonanza, it’s worth mentioning that Bonanza allows you to import items from Etsy, or eBay.
The site does make dispensation for promotion, allowing sellers some ability to promote their wares, via forums, social networking (Bonanza Twitter and Facebook pages), a lot of the features of various online marketplaces.
In terms of traffic, Bonanza garners 1.2 million visitors per month.
One thing that potential sellers may be interested to know is that Bonanza did take home the 2014 Sellers Choice Award, administered by Ecommercebytes.com. It scored high in communication and ease of use. In terms of profitability, it scored a 5.33 (almost certainly out of 10), placing it between eCrater and Amazon, yet one point below eBay.
Bonanza’s focus is crafts, collectibles, fine hand-made items. However, its categories list reveals that it strays so far as sports and memorabilia, skin care, and hand bags.
Shouldn’t we talk about fees? Fair point. Basically, the seller pays Bonanza 3.5% of the price of an item sold, or a 50 cent minimum. If there are flat or monthly fees, they’re not very easy to find.
There are always a few new services popping up, and we’ve just highlighted three solid ones.
You can decide which of the features are the ones that mean the most to you, which ones set one particular platform ahead of the others.
We hope we’ve put you on the fast track when doing your research.
