Default How to Be in an Etsy Showcase

Hey ladies... I'm wanting to put a couple a couple of items in an etsy showcase, but when I looked under the "children" and "accessory" categories, all of the spots are sold out. How do you go about purchasing these spots when they're sold out so often? Any tips? Thank you!

I purchased one just today, but I am the supplies category. I don't know, those spots weren't filled. But I was not impressed personally.

Why weren't you impressed? Also, have you purchased one before and can you tell a difference in sales?

No, this was the first time. I got about the same amount of sales I always get and about 2 people favoriting me. I would say i maybe got 2 new customers, which I guess is worth it, but I won't do it again.

Thank you! Good to know! I know it's only $7 an item, but I didn't know if it was worth it or not..

I tried it a few times and didn't think it made much of a difference.....I don't think it's worth it imo.

I too have tried it and did not think it worth the money, however, I found the trick! Late at night (I can't remember what time... I want to say 10:00 MST?) a new spot opens for a different day. If you catch it right then you can grab it. Best of luck!
