Etsy shop critiques are a great way to get hands on know how on how to make changes and jump start traffic and visibility into your shop. So many people jump on Etsy and think their items will fly off the shelves, but it doesn’t happen that way. I am happy to report that shop critiques are coming back for Christmas what a gift to give yourself!

AZ Craze Alternative to Ebay Etsy Handmade Marketplace

 

AZ Craze Marketplace for Handmade Vintage Supplies

Updated 5.13.17

In 2015 I wrote an article about  AZ Craze,  they were a newer marketplace for listing handmade, vintage and craft supplies. Much like Etsy they keep their fees low.   They offer two different plans, a flat $5/month or 5% commission on sales. Nice!  One of the reasons Etsy became so big so fast, is their low fees which attracted sellers who were tired of paying big Ebay fees, etc.

Now this website was acquired by Etsy. WOW.  This post has been updated.

Etsy is still where it’s at. NICE.

Previously they told me ” Az Craze started as an idea in the summer of 2010 after the founders got tired of paying high prices and fees to sell crafts and other products online. So we set out to create a company that would be able to offer a fair price to all sellers and that would not favor sellers that may be willing/able to pay more to be a “featured” seller.”

 

Their motto:  “No matter how small, EVERY business matters & should get the opportunity to thrive”.

Nice. Maybe I should start a marketplace and sell to Etsy?

HOW TO TELL US YOU HAVE DONE SO   You would simply do this and send me your  proof to me at RetroChalet on Etsy.

=======================================================

Terms and Conditions: Offer open to worldwide Etsy shop owners. I get to pick the items I want to feature from your shop.  There is no limit to the amount of times you may do this, however I reserve the right to spread out your features . So if you shared their link twenty times, I would owe you four different features but I would spread them out so it helps you more.  Sometimes the links are coded “nofollow” which is just search engine talk, they still link direct to your shop and are still “credible” links. They will help you get residual traffic to your shop or item down the road by visitors of Etsy Rainbows  If you are looking for a “dofollow” link only for adding backlinks and optimization, you must see the paid section on the “Get Featured” page.
