There are so many online marketplaces to sell stuff especially things like crafts, antiques and handmade items. Handmade crafts are usually in high demand, it is quite a niche market, and many online markets sell such handmade items.
I had many readers reach out to me to find about authentic places to sell handmade items. Today, I am listing some good online marketplaces where you can sell your crafts.
Etsy is the most well-known and popular marketplace for selling crafts online. It has a wide variety of handmade crafts listed. There are no fees to become a member of this marketplace, but Etsy does have listing fees and takes a percentage of your sale earnings.
Another super big marketplace which sells many things other than crafts or handmade items. eBay sells a lot of things. I have seen a good number of crafts listed here as well, so this can be a great option. There is insertion fees (you have some free insertions per month) and final value fees which depend on the amount of sale and postage.
iCraft is another marketplace where you can sell handmade items exclusively. They don’t accept anything other than handmade things. They have monthly fees to register on this marketplace. But there are no fees taken out from your sale earnings.
This is again quite popular online marketplace where you can sell handmade items along with crafts. They have two types of payments; the first one is 0.23% per listing and final valuation fees of 9%. The second one is $20 per month for your store, and you don’t pay any listing fees. You will be paying around 3% of final valuation fees for this plan. They also have a $40 per month plan.
This is relatively a new marketplace when compared to other established stores like eBay or Etsy. The biggest advantage with this marketplace is that you have no listing fees or monthly store fees and, this is great when you are just starting out.
Another marketplace which has a lot of listed items right from jewellery to vintage and crafts to sell. This marketplace does not have any selling or listing fees and, this is one more marketplace which you can look at if you are just starting out.
This marketplace is exclusively for handmade items, and they have a huge category of handmade things to sell. Registration is free, but you will have to pay a listing fee and a percentage of the sale.
Hyena Cart sells handmade things exclusively. Apart from selling handmade items, they also sell used things. This marketplace has three options to register – share your online store with other sellers, have an individual store or sell used things through Spot’s Corner. They don’t have a listing fee, but a one-time setup fee of $10 is applicable. There is an ongoing monthly fee of $5.
