Default Re: Critique My Etsy

If they can't keep the resellers off of etsy, I don't see how they can bother w/keeping those types of supplies off of etsy!!

I agree with the other ladies, you could work on your tags, and the background on the pictures is a little busy.

Also, take more pictures, you can have up to 5, do some at different angles, show the back, on a model, etc.

you may want to rethink your payment policy and require Paypal payments to be made at time of purchase. YOu don't want to be waiting around forever.

And one more thing. The crochet headbands, did you hand make them? If not, they do not belong on Etsy. They "could" be "supplies" BUT, Etsy recently changed the rules and any commercial "supply" that can be used alone cannot be sold, such as headbands, kufis, necklace chains, etc. You could sell them if you clip a bow to it though. There are flag happy people out there, so I'm just giving you a heads up.

from the do's and don'ts

A commercial crafting supply is not a commercial item that, although it may be used in crafting, is ready to use as is (for example: mass-produced clothing, dollhouse furniture and clothing).
