Etsy is a Pain in My Arse

I have chosen to continue dragging my feet on the whole web site thing. Instead, I set a goal to get an Etsy shop up and running because, you know, it’s easier, right?


I am now about 3 weeks past said goal and, in addition to still not having my shop set up, I have come to the following conclusion: Etsy is a pain in my ample behind.

I’ve spent a considerable amount of time on this and am still about 3-4 steps away from having what I would consider an acceptable shop. Maybe I just don’t understand the whole Etsy thing, but I am feeling extremely limited in my ability to set things up the way I’d like.  It’s frustrating and it is making me reconsider Etsy as a venue for selling my work.

Guess I could always get started on that web site. Meh.

  1. The worst part was writing up all of the policies because I couldn’t do things quite the way I used to with my old web site. The shipping parameters were particularly frustrating and I still don’t have them exactly how I’d like them, but I’ll manage. Eventually, when I get an actual web site up and running, I’ll be able to do things the way I want.
