Where is the best place to sell your art online?


Etsy describes itself as a handmade marketplace.

I know (or at least have spoken too!) at least one artist Yvette Hawkins who sells her work on Etsy. Basically its 20cents to list one item for sale for more detailed information click here. Etsy’s weather reports give some interesting figures but I’d love to know what percentage of listed items sell!

I spent ome time staring incoherenty at ebays fees… I guess because I’ve never sold anything online I thought ebay would be straightforward. Wrong! So many choices.

UPDATE 24/02/2010: I’ve continued to look into this issue and found this post incredibly helpful. Its on a blog called ‘Making a Mark’ and is written by artist and author Katherine Tyrrell. It’s just a great site for practising artists and art lovers.
