Hi Marie,  It is a bit of a catch 22 situation.   Artyah needs sellers to list their items here in order for buyers to come and find them.  The more items and choice there is available, the more likely that sellers are to come.  Artyah works at the moment, and people can buy and sell so there is little point in waiting for the new platform as we do not know when it will be and it won't automatically generate lots of new customers, we have to try and do that now .

Working hard at getting some listings up.. the whole Etsy thing yesterday just came out of the blue.. I am also one to believe that Etsy does everything with thought & analysis.. I do believe the structured tier plans/packages WILL impact your search results.. so far, it's proven on Ebay & most other websites.. I don't have an ebay store.. I just sell very little.. and I never get views (maybe 30 in a 30 day selling period).. my listings are free.. if I paid for an ebay store.. my views would go way up.. I'm betting on the same thing w/ Etsy.. after all, their CEO is an Ebay transfer.. and everything implemented so far has been by the Ebay handbook.. either way.. for me.. it doesn't matter.. I like being here.. and here I will stay..

All Smiles for a happy weekend!

This is not what it says in the info etsy sent out. I still have the info/banner thing in my shop manager. Every time something comes up I go back and read what it says. Now granted eventually I can see that happening and if it affects search I probably will buy a package if I can afford it.

IMO etsy is becoming more and more like ebay every day.

Here is the link to all the info. Read it all and click on the links.

According the to Admin Q&A on June 14th views will be the same for unpaid and paid.

It wouldn't really surprise me that sometime in the future it could change.
I kind of figured when they hired the Ex Ebay guy that Etsy would be going more towards the way things are done at Ebay. [frown]

I am going to keep my shop open there for the time being. 
Yes I am going to have to raise my prices to account for the new
5% fees.  
I will keep the lower prices (for now) on any other sites that I have my items listed on tho.

I'm going to do the same, Lynne. 

Going to start uploading more items here on ArtYah, while keeping my Etsy open. I've also began using other marketplace apps which have gone well. I hate having to raise my prices on Etsy, but oh well. Sadly, nothing we can do about it. [frown] At least my prices will be the same price as they originally were everywhere else.

What other Market Places are you using?

Barb I have a free shop (I paid for a lifetime shop 6 years ago) on Zibbet that I am revamping.
It doesn't have much traffic and I have to try to drive it there but, at least it doesn't cost me a penny unless something sells.
I am adding all my pieces to that shop and even if I just use it as a online portfolio it is another place for now.

The problem I have with my Zibbet shop is when I bought the lifetime I was doing photography so the shop is LMRPhotography.
I asked to change it but, they wouldn't.   So I have a banner with LMRCreations and AKA-LMRPhotography at the bottom.
I do have LMRCreations shop (it was originally opened for a different product) so I think I am going to make a banner pointing to the shop that has my items in it :-/  If that is even possible..........guess I will have to see.

I do have an Amazon shop but, haven't re-opened it and not sure if I want to.  I only had a couple sales there and it is more expensive.

I too have a life time shop on Zibbet . I have thought about putting my things there and really promoting it.
I have had some sales in the past but don't put much time into it


They changed mine for me a few years ago. Johnathan changed it for me years ago.

I am really hoping this venue really takes off once the site is finished.

I was pretty upset when they wouldn't change my name..........maybe it was because I had a shop under that name already???.
I had only asked about 6 months ago.
I may try again and explain that the other shop is mine and I would like to remove that one if I can change the lifetime shop name to that one.
It would be great to have it under my new (5 years old) name!!!

I do hope that ArtYah takes off it would be awesome.
Right now it just seems to be a re-run of what we went through with Zibbet.

The thing I like about the site is it's free to list and digital downloads are a feature. It's so hard to find sites with that feature. I'm going to be building up my digitals/printables listings, and plan to make eBlueJay my home base for my collections from other venues. I hope they don't stop offering downloads. Things change so much now. Never know what to expect. [confused]

Is that the one that requires all of that extra stuff? If so I tried it and couldn't get it all to match up right.

Not that I recall. Maybe it's another site that you're thinking of.
