Renew for Another Year?
« on: May 30, 2016, 10:21:10 AM »
I just got my renewal notice for another year.


I am successful on my regular site, Etsy and Amazon Handmade -- not so much here.


Can someone update me on the future of this site?  What improvements, general advertising and such are in the works?  My sense is that shoppers do not know this site even exists.    I need to decide whether to stay.


Thanks for any info you can provide.

Your shop here is lovely  but not what I need....   Hang  on  for a while longer.  I'll commit to telling my friends and family  and call on others to do the same....   Does that seem reasonable?

Peg we do the best we can here. I find that a lot of people with Etsy shops promote their etsy shops and not their shop here. Etsy has a lot more traffic than we do and has been established longer so it is tough to compete with. That is why we try to keep our fees very low.

I took a break.  I am hoping my shop is archived so I could come back later.  I need to rethink what will sell better.  The wedding items are just a subset of what I embroider.  Maybe something else will work better.


Do I retain my shop identity if I can come back?

Yes everything is saved, including your products, just start payments again and it will go live.
