Title: Secret Revealed! I Present the Handmade Artists' Shop
Post by: chainmaille on December 27, 2009, 01:45:53 PM
Well this is what I've been working on for the last several months, a shop for our forum members to be able to sell their treasures. You can see how to join here http://handmadeartistsshop.com/sell in detail. In general to join the new Handmade Artists Shop you need to be a paid subscriber on the forum and that's it. The subscription costs $5.00 a month and no more. We are not going to charge for commissions and or listing fees or anything else. We also have no intention of raising the monthly fees either, if you signed up at $5.00 a month you stay their for life.

The goal of this site is to support handmade and our artists on the forum. We have had our beta testers working for the last few weeks and have been ironing out the bugs and getting the site ready. The site is brand new and will still be going through changes and improvements over the coming months but I just couldn't wait any longer to let my secret out.

So if you want to join go to your forum profile and sign up as a paid subscriber, if you leave the box checked for reoccurring payments then I will not have to bill you every month. I would prefer this as we are small and I don't have a staff like some of the other large venues. Once you've set up your paid subscription go here http://handmadeartistsshop.com/index.php?option=com_ixxocart&Itemid=1&p=signup_vendor to sign up. Once I've confirmed your paid subscription I'll approve you as a vendor. You can then log into you private sellers dashboard http://www.handmadeartistsshop.com/administrator/vendor.php which will give you access to set up your site.

After you have signed up as a pid subscriber you will also have access to the private sellers area of this forum. Make sure you read the thread How do I set up my shop http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,2227.0.html as there is a tutorial on page 2 that I set up to help.

Just a quick note. The forum will still support our teams and guilds just as we always have, we will now also be supporting our own site as well. ;D

Anyway I look forward to our new site and I hope you all come and join us in our new creation. I do believe that we have the best artists on the net and that this site will give all the big boys are run for their money in the coming months and years.

Enjoy,

Andrew and Kimberly

I admit defeat.  I would love to participate, but I haven't a clue after reading, reading and reading, how to go about signing up for the paid subscription to the handmade artist forum.  Now that I've embarrassed myself in front of one and all, maybe somebody will take pity on my had give me a guiding hand.

Thanks,

No problem, go to your profile here on the forum, look on the left hand side and you will see paid subscription as an option. Click paid subscription and follow the prompts.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other problems.

Thanks so much for those kind words.

Just a quick note for those who are joining.

First make sure you sign in to the right area on the site. There are two logins one for customers and one for vendors. The vendors sign up is here
http://www.handmadeartistsshop.com/index.php?option=com_ixxocart&Itemid=1&p=signup_vendor.
Also please set up your paid subscription in your profile on the forum before you try to sign up.
Once you have set up your subscription go to vendor sign up and fill out the form. You will recieve a confirmation email, but your account is still not active. I will activate it and you will then recieve an activation email with a link to your private sellers admin or dashboard that is where you set up your shop.

Please ask as many questions in this thread that you need to, we are here to help. And to all those who signed up already enjoy, I think this will be fun! ;D

In oreder to start promoting the new shop I've created a twitter account here http://twitter.com/HAFshop and have been tagging things HAFshop so that everyone will be able to follow the tweets. It will take me a while to build the twitter account followers but I don't want to try to hard until I get the badge from ambient girl. She's supposed to be back in town today finishing the new forum badges for all our outreach efforts.

Enjoy

I guess with all the new people jumping in and listing I really need to get off my but and list!  I've got a few new "Kimmy creations" as Andrew calls them that I just got pictures of today and will be sure to get them up soon.
Title: Re: Secret Revealed! I Present the Handmade Artists' Shop
Post by: chainmaille on December 29, 2009, 07:32:06 PM
I think this forum and shop has been a fantastic idea.  I just paid to have my website (website, shopping cart & domain name) renewed for a year... at a whopping cost of $380 with discounts.  The tech tried to sell me more time, but I just couldn't afford it!  So the HAF Store is a steal compared!  I won't be surprised to close out my website and just focus on the store!
Thanks for the compliments. We used website tonight at the beginning. Just a word of caution if you ever want to move your site you will not be able to get your content. At least that is what happened to us. Website tonight holds the content in different locations and pulls it together to create a page so therefore we had to start from scratch when we left website tonight. You might want to check for yourself when you get a chance before you get too deep.

Anyway yes the annual price works out to $60 bucks a year. We had considerable conversations about this before we set the price and felt that $5.00 a month was reasonable. Considering the fees that other venues charge I do believe this is a bargain and I'm glad you agree. It will take a little while to get off the ground but I believe it will pay off for everyone ;D

LOL considerable conversations is an understatement!  I wanted to talk about this in between working full time and finishing college and kids and sports and holidays and...well, you get the idea. 

We are hoping that it will be a better deal than many places because you can list what you want when you want without the fees and, hopefully, cross promote the hell out of each other.  Just wait...we will take over the handmade world!  Nope, no visions of world domination here! :evil:

For those of you who have researched doing a shopping cart yourself, the one used for the new shop is really in-depth and will give you a lot of control that you will love. This launch came at a great time for me who was about to put my hubby to work fixing up my non Etsy site.

I still need to load up a lot of products but plan on doing that at the same time I'm giving my Etsy shop a 2010 makeover.

I'm so glad you are jointing us seedlings!  I know that Andrew spent a lot of time researching carts and this one is a bit more difficult to maneuver than some of the others; but, we wanted to give the artist a lot of control over their shops and stats.  One of the big problems I had with a few other sites is that I couldn't customize enough so that was an important consideration.

This is great timing wise, as I want to start selling this year (after making sure to have any paperwork I need for tax stuff taken care of first) and doing so via HAF would be great.

I'm still debating doing a website at some point, though more of a portfolio rather then a selling website. DevArt has their portfolios but I'd like to customize something more.

Thank you for putting this together :)

Just thought I would let everyone know that we started a Facebook page for the shop here http://www.facebook.com/pages/Point-Pleasant-NJ/Handmade-Artists-Shop/256028573125?ref=sgm&v=wall#/pages/Point-Pleasant-NJ/Handmade-Artists-Shop/256028573125?ref=sgm.
So stop by and become a fan write on the wall or whatever you want.

I would like to thank Twas Brillig for kindly offering to help with this outreach effort, she has done a wonderful job with the Forums FB Page now, I'm sure she will do a wonderful job with this page as well.

Thanks Twas! ;D

Just signed up as a vendor and looking forward to exploring this new venue. I sell well on Etsy, but I must say ArtFire, 1000 Markets, and Zibbet are all not paying off for me in any way. I cancelled my paid subscriptions to ArtFire and Zibbet in favor of giving HAF a try. Here's to the New Year!

Thanks for all the hard work... and great idea!

Hey Dragon Meta Keywords are like your tags, It is stuff that helps google and other spiders see what you are trying to promote. The Meta title tag also is what google sees as the title it can be the same as your title or you can add other stuff to it to make google know more like your shop name or something. Your choice.

Lets keep the shop discussion for questions in the private area of the forum, If you look down you will see a whole new world opened up to you with a whole bunch of info to help you with your shop. Hope that helps and glad to have you aboard.

I completely understand...hard to pay if you aren't selling!  Keep active on the forum and promote and I'm sure that sales will come your way soon!

I try to be as active as possible, and I keep plenty of stuff listed. I guess I can't complain. I sold only one piece in Oct. and then 2 in Dec. So it is picking up. But right now my sales are not even covering my etsy bill. But I am not giving up. I have a local gig either later this month of first part of next month coming up, so hope to get more word out. Gonna also work on getting a blog up soon. That might help also.

Andrew is in the process of revamping the site, so it may be disabled until the new site is ready to roll out. You can read about it here:

The new HAFshop is now open and accepting new vendors. All you have to do is register here http://handmadeartistsshop.com all the subscriptions are being handled on the shop now. You have two options, one is $5.00 a month and the other is $50.00 a year, which will save you $10 bucks over the course of the year. Anyway hope you all enjoy the new shop, it seems to be getting a real good response. Very fast and easy to use.

I have questions about the HAF shop.  I do little girls clothing, and there isn't much in the children's clothing section to reference. 
What I saw in children's clothing was for individual sizes.  I make each item as someone buys it, so each of my listings are for multiple sizes. Is the HAF shop set up like an Etsy shop where you list the amount for 1 item and then relist, or like ArtFire where you list the amount for more than 1 item and don't relist.  Hope that makes sense!
Title: Re: Secret Revealed! I Present the Handmade Artists' Shop

You can list multiple quantities. There are no listing fees. Just one monthly or annual fee. Hope that helps

I can't find where to pay for a subscription.  I have read the other posts but I am still lost.  I think this is this separate from my HAS shop.
The forum is free so there is no subscription needed. The fees for the shop used to be collected through the forum. You already are set up on the shop so you are good to go. Hope that helps.

Hey... there's no subsection under knitting/crochet/needlework for "housewares" or something of the sort.  I've had to list the washcloths under "housewares/bathroom."  Any chance we could get a section under knitting so I can list 'em there too?

I guess we can, all the other wash cloths are listed under housewares. Do think it is better to do it the other way or both. Deleting subcategories is not good, so should I add another one.

I think both.  That way we can list some under housewares & some under knitting and be found in both places.

Dont know if this will get seen or if i am even putting this in a good place on the forum, but i wanted to know if the 5.00 charge was suppose to be automatically reoccuring? I thought if i wanted to continue then i would be notified and then renew for another month if i chose.

I ask because i was charged the 5.00 for another month and i barely had enough in my account to cover it as i wasnt expecting it to go through automatically! could you please fill me in on the details. Thanks :)

You should send a private message directly to Andrew for this question I think.

Thank Blue, yes it is automatically deducted every month. This is the only way we could do it at this price. If we had to physically bill and collect fees, we would never be able to do it for $5.00 a month. It is a lot of work without having to bill. When you signed up, you got an email as well from paypal stating that you set up automatic payments.
Also if there is not enough in your account it will try again in 5 days automatically.
Hope that helps,
Andrew
