online selling sites

There are so many online selling sites where you can 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 authentic places other than sites like Craigslist to sell handmade items.

Some good online selling sites where you can sell your crafts.

#1. Etsy

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.

#2. eBay

eBay is another super big marketplace that sells many things other than crafts or handmade items. I have seen a good number of crafts listed here as well, so this can be a great option. There are insertion fees (you have some free insertions per month) and final value fees, which depend on the amount of the sale and the postage.

#3. iCraft

iCraft is another marketplace where you can sell handmade items exclusively. It doesn’t accept anything other than handmade things. There are monthly fees to register on this marketplace. But there are no fees taken out from your sale earnings.


#4. Art Fire

Art Fire is again quite a popular online marketplace where you can sell handmade items along with crafts. It has 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 on this plan. It also has a $40 per month plan.

#5. ShopHandmade

ShopHandmade is a relatively 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.

#6. Made It Myself

Made It Myself is a marketplace that is exclusively for handmade items, and it has a huge category of handmade things for sale. Registration is free, but you will have to pay a listing fee and a percentage of the sale.

#7. indieCart

indieCart sells handmade things exclusively. Apart from selling handmade items, it also sells 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 Spots Corner. It doesn’t have a listing fee, but a one-time setup fee of $10 is applicable. There is an ongoing monthly fee of $5.

#8. Zibbet

Zibbet is another marketplace that has a lot of listed items right from jewelry to vintage items and crafts to sell. This marketplace does not have any selling or listing fees, and this is one more marketplace that you can look at if you are just starting out.

You can also try registering with online shopping e-commerce platforms like Shopify, Amazon, and Storenvy and start selling.
