Etsy is the preeminent marketplace for handmade, vintage or simply unusual. If your company is into selling gifts, it is a great platform to sell on. If you are looking to sell on Etsy, Despatch Cloud has a comprehensive integration to process orders and keep your stock in synchronisation with any other sales channel or POS system.
Who is Etsy? Based in New York America, Etsy is a global marketplace for the rare, the vintage, the quirky and the cute. The eCommerce version of the craft market, Etsy is a marketplace for art, craft items, homemade and vintage. The stated aim of Etsy is to increase the interaction between people. Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson stated that Etsy is "a platform that provides meaning to people, and an opportunity to validate their art, their craft". And it is big, with a turnover of $3.93 billion in 2018. Should I sell on Etsy? Etsy is an ideal place to find unique gifts, unusually for an eCommerce company. Etsy has a great reputation of a place to find ethically sourced items including recycled and upcycled items for sale. And again, unusually in eCommerce, the majority of business owners are women, meaning that Etsy has been a boost to female entrepreneurship. If you want to sell into the gift market, then you should seriously consider Etsy. Despatch Cloud integration with Etsy: Despatch Cloud integrates with Etsy to bring your items to a wider audience.
