Default Asked a ton of times I'm sure

Can anyone give me any help on ecrater vs. etsy. I have my own domain thru godaddy.com but until that is up and running which way should I go. I know many have had much success with etsy. ecrater is free but how does it work out with paying thru google checkout. do you have to pay any fees to google? I have a good customer base locally and have some shows coming up and would like to have somewhere they can order online now before my web is up and running. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I like ecrater because it's free - but you'll need to do A LOT of your own advertising to get people to find you.

Etsy is easy to use and very popular - but they charge those annoying fees to list and sell. There's also a bazillion bows on there. HTH

I used to. It did not make a significant difference in my page views or visitors. I only spent adwords money in order to take advantage of the free transaction processing thru google checkout....alas, google must have caught on because that deal is ending may 4th or so.
