If anyone has been pondering jumping ship at Etsy or if you just want to put your eggs in another basket, NOW is the time to try Artfire. Even if only to test it out.
I have really found Artfire to be a great site for commerce. The foundation is strong, there are new tools everyday, customers of all kinds (buyers and sellers) are heard and their opinions are turned into action, and the admin here work their asses off to not only provide all of this for us, but to be available whenever a question is asked.
And now they are making it better by offering full services at only US $5.95 per month! If you lock it in, that's your price for life. But they will only do this if they get 20,000 shops to do it. That goal looks pretty attainable. The ability to sign up for the deal has only been active for a day and there's already 2,550 signed up.
To put that in perspective, that's only 20 cents per day. What can you get for 20 cents on other sites that allow you to sell your stuff?
And there are no other fees. No backend final value fees, no additional fees for each thing you list, nothing like that. That's under $6 a month to have a fully functioning store of unlimited size and sales on the net.
So lock in your price here so we can all get in on this deal!
