Artfire 8 Years, 3 Months ago  
I was wondering how Artfire is? Do many of you on here sell on that site? Do things sell pretty good? Thanks!

Re: Artfire 8 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hi. The general feeling I get from most people there is that they get a lot of views, but no actual sales. I've been there quite a long time, over 2 years. I used to pay monthly but I found I was spending more than making it. The 6 sales I had were from supplies I used to sell, I didn't sell any home decor, nor paintings.

Personally, I don't like the layout or the look of the site. I feel it looks quite cheap and it's way too busy. They do have some good features which are very useful to sellers.

Perhaps you should frequent their forums for a little while as they can often be a good indication as to what people feel about the site. Artfire is also often discussed on the Etsy forums.

Thanks, Cathy. I have gone on thee & looked around some. But that's all! I've been on etsy a year this month & have only had 5 sales. I'm glad it's only 20 cents to list an item. I try to get the word out the best I can about my shop. Guess that's all you can do! have a good one!

It's quite a difficult job online these days to stay visible. I do hope that our site can help with that a little and you can all benefit from the little bit of experience I have. If there's anything you feel I can help you with, just let me know.

I've had more sales on Artfire than I ever had on Etsy. On Etsy I could never get my lampwork noticed in among all the crowd; I sold two handbound books there and that was it. Plus I have issues with some of the Etsy goings-on, like the relisting over & over to try to get noticed.

It helps that I got in on Artfire early on, so my monthly fee is low.
