Making jewelry can not only be a great outlet for your creativity, but a great way to earn extra cash. However, you are not going to be able to sell your creations at a traditional jewellers’ shop. You need to go on the Internet. Jewler Olga Kuznetoff lists where to sell jewelry online.
One popular website for selling hand-made creations is Etsy. It has more than 54 million registered users, so you are able to quickly reach a lot of potential customers. It’s easy to use to set up a virtual shop for your jewelry. Etsy does charge more fees than eBay. They charge a listing fee, a transaction fee, and a payment processing fee. If you list an item and it does not sell and you want to list it again, you have to pay the listing fee again.
The best platform for selling jewelry that you make is eBay. It’s easy to use, has more members than Etsy, and only charges sales fees. You may need to provide proof of certain certificates.
If your jewelry consistently sells and you are getting a lot of positive buzz, consider selling on Amazon. Although it is the largest online shop in the world, its fees are much higher than for Etsy or Ebay. Amazon requires jewelers to go through an approval process, which requires a non-refundable fee of $5,000. You also pay sales fees.
