| | Re: Is Etsy worth it?
I would say that if you have something unique to offer, then go for it. When pricing your items, you would definately need to take into account the fees. But, you may want to check to see if there are already tons of products for sale that are similar to yours. It is extremely difficult to sell what is already out there.
The only other negative things about Etsy is it is a breeding ground for copycats. So even if you have unique products, be prepared to see someone copying your items within weeks....especially if people see that it is a big seller.
On a positive note, though, it is a good way to market your goods. You can sell on Etsy and then be sure to put a business card in the package when shipping that invites customers to shop on your website.
Hope that helps!
