Etsy Help

So I don't wear any of my kandi anymore ???? and I don't want them.

THIS IS WHY: I used to cut and I used to bracelets I made to hide my cuts. I'm in a better place now and my drawer full of kandi just kinda sits there reminding me of what I used them for and I just shouldn't have them anymore.

So I heard etsy was like the best way to sell kandi but I have NO CLUE how it works or literally anything about it.

Please help me so I can start selling my kandi.

Thanks love ?

I've never done it myself, but I have looked into it. From my knowledge this is what you will need for everything to work:

1) Bank account (if you don't have one, you will need additional things to set one up)

2) E-mail account (pretty sure you have one)

3) PayPal account (need this to pay/receive money) (this is why you need a bank account) (you can purchase anything with PayPal for "free" [no additional charge to the user] but if you are selling, I believe it will charge you 2.9% + $0.30 of each sale. Ie. if you sell a $30 item, you will get $28.83. *** $30 x 2.9% = $0.87 plus $0.30 makes $1.87.

4) Camera to take pictures of your items.

5) A good attitude. (This helps you promote your item and make a client base. Also helps your own self-esteem.)


If I missed anything, feel free to add to this. Hope this helps.


Hope you stay in a healthy state of mind. happy hang in there.!

-Cheers!

@Laurel:
I know about 5 people who have an Etsy store but don't have a business license.
I signed up for one but didn't have a bank account at the time and it never asked or said anything about needed a license.

@Laurel: Might be the type of shop too.
I think there is a thing where you can have a simple shop or a more advanced one.
