Hey..
For some reason I keep coming back to this place. the front page looks good. I relisted last night and maybe I'll list a few new products. Need it to bounce back here. I've not had a sale here in ages.

What about you all?

I feel once they get everything up and running this site will take off, for now I am just letting things ride, haven't listed any new.  My one and only sale was last December.  I am hoping, like all of us for more.  Going to keep my account open, maybe after the Hoidays and things settle down i will list more.

I have been here since about June or July  of 2016. I have had some sales. More when I first joined up. I am listing some each day so when the new site is up and running I will have quite a few listed.

I am just wasting my money on Etsy. If you figure everything  they charge you up the last sale I go cost me over 10% now to sell over there. They now charge you .20 for each listing, and when an item sells they charge a 5% on you price as well as your shipping fee and still push for you to list with free shipping. then if you will check your payment account you will see they have also charged you a transaction fee which on mine came to another 5% so all in all it cost me over 10%. 

I just wish we had some kind of idea as to when the site will be complete.

Still have two accounts but stopped listing. I really thought this was going to take off but now I am not sure. I like many others were disappointed that the updates took so long and are still not done. Haven't totally given up but can't afford to keep listing with no return.

The site looks lovely, and is easy to use, so I'll keep relisting, but it's the publicity that is probably lacking.
I do the odd Christmas market or craft fair here in France, which is all you're allowed each year, and occasionally, I have an 'at home', but sales on here would be much appreciated!

my items have expired and I will be watching for the new format before I relist anything.

I hate saying this.  I'm going to seriously be looking for another site after the 1st of the year.  No sales since June 2017.  350 listings between 2 shops.  Had high hopes in the beginning.  The update is taking too long.  I don't pretend to know what's involved, but I can't imagine what the hold up is.  I know it's not me.  I did well on Etsy for 9 years.  I left over the forced EP and haven't regretted it after hearing of all the other changes since then.  I've never expected Artyah to be just like Etsy.  I realize it takes a long time to grow, but...

The rebuild has been going on about a year now and no one can tell us or will tell us just how much longer we have to wait. Another 6 moths and I will have been here 3years but don't know if I will make that or not. I am now doing this to have a pastime but it has to pay for itself and right now it is not doing that so will be looking into doing some crochet for the Nursing Home in my little area where I live and for the homeless in our area. If it is going to cost me tp be on these sites then I might as well do some good instead of waisting my time online.

It is not improvements to the site that give sellers heart.
It's making a sale now and then.
To be on a site for a year and a half with no sales would make anyone evaluate their position here.
This site looks as good as others I have have visited. Granted, not all the bells and whistles for carts etc. but it is the exposure that is missing.
If we have to bring our clients, we might as well have a stand alone site. A main incentive to joining a platform such as Artyah, is to take advantage of the foot traffic.

Well, at the mo. I can afford to keep re-listing the same few items, until such time as the new site appears.
Having said that, I shall have to be 'on holiday' for a week, as I have a couple of Christmas fairs to attend, and it always takes ages to sort the stock afterwards, in order to make sure I'm not listing stuff I've already sold!
I do hope it takes off, as it's such a lovely site.

I agree with you, StyleUnique. The cost of being here is about the price of a nice coffee each month and I also use it more as a hobby right now. So I am in it for the long haul.
I just meant by my above comment that it is not the new design that will create more sales. 
I like the management here and I like the interaction with my fellow sellers. 
There is something special about the unity on Artyah and I so want for Craig and his staff to make their dream a reality.

I am still here but without a sale for one and a half years I don't know how much longer I can stay.  On saying that I will be listing more in the new year but not until then as I am busy with other venues.

My husband has been nagging for a while that I should leave but I like the site and I want it to do well.
