Day one of revamping my shop is going well — I have been able to make a couple of changes to my shop that I am excited about. I now will be shipping internationally, and have listed the cost of shipping outside of the USA to all of my ornaments. I also edited the names of each ornament in order to make each more searchable. I will be editing the descriptions of each to tell everyone a little more about each product and will be finding new places to photograph the ornaments.
I also decided to accept all forms of payment allowed by Etsy, rather than just Paypal. Though Paypal is still my preferred method, I also accept checks and money orders. I will be accepting credit and debit cards when Etsy has this feature set up, which will be in the next couple of months.
The Etsy App for Android phones has been downloaded, and I am currently installing the WordPress App. I will be testing out these while I am working on set tomorrow. I am hoping it turns out to be a short day so that I will be able to easily get some more work done! I am also considering selling my ornaments on eBay, but that is something to think about after I get this shop off the ground. I also have been going through all the Etsy Success emails I have received and have not read through — there is so much valuable info and tips. I am putting together a handbook for myself with the notes I am taking plus the handbook packets that Etsy sends out. They are great! This is going to be great help in keeping me excited and focused.
In the meantime, here is the link to my Etsy shop! Come and take a look: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KAKelly0831.
