In a previous post, I provided a list of selling venues for artists, artisans and artisan crafters. This week I’m profiling another of those sites on my blog.
What is the site name and where can artisan sellers find you?
Tell us a little bit about your site.
Zibbet is a global marketplace, connecting buyers and sellers of Handmade Goods, Fine Art, Vintage Items and Crafting Supplies. We’re similar to the well known Etsy, but very different at the same time.
Zibbet doesn’t have listing fees and we don’t take a cut of your sales.
With Zibbet, you have the choice between a ‘Basic’ or ‘Premium’ Account…
Basic accounts are totally FREE. We give you your own shop, web address, outstanding promotional tools and customer support, all for FREE. With a Basic account you can have up to 25 items in your shop at a time. When an item sells, you can replace it by listing another one. You can sell as many items as you want and you won’t pay us a cent!
Premium accounts are currently $7/month (at the time of this writing there are only 2430 accounts left at this special price). With a Premium Account you’ll enjoy the freedom of listing as many items as you want, plus the flexibility of having full control over the customization of your shop’s color theme, and layout. The ‘level’ to which you can customize your shop is what people are most excited about. You can really make it look like your own website! As an example, here’s just a few of our sellers Premium Shops: http://www.zibbet.com/leelabijou, http://www.zibbet.com/riskybeads and http://www.zibbet.com/lindawalshoriginals
Seller Shop Example: Risky Beads

Where did the idea for Zibbet come from?
The idea for Zibbet was initially born out of a desire to create an ‘eBay alternative’ for Artisans.
You can read more about this on our ‘About Us’ page: http://www.zibbet.com/aboutus
Tell us about the site’s staff.
We’re a team of 3 at the moment and have plans to expand our staff before the year is out. In the mean time, we just have to work twice as hard!!

What is your plan for the site? What are your goals?
Our goal is to see Zibbet become THE BEST online venue to sell your Handmade Goods, Fine Art, Vintage Items and Crafting Supplies…PERIOD!
We will achieve this by continually focusing on developing new and innovative features to aid our sellers’ promotional needs AND we have a strong focus on bringing buyers to the site and making their buying experience one to remember.
Connecting sellers with buyers is our number one priority!
Who is your target seller audience?
Anyone looking to sell their Handmade Goods, Fine Art, Vintage Items and/or Crafting Supplies.
How will you drive buyers to your venue?
Currently, we’re driving buyer traffic to Zibbet through a number of online marketing campaigns. By the end of this year we have plans to expand our team and employ someone whose sole focus will be on bringing buyers to the site.
Is this an international, domestic US, Far East or European focused site?
Zibbet is focused on reaching an International audience.
What differentiates this venue from other online selling venues?
Zibbet is fast becoming known for its exceptional Customer Service. We value our members and strive to give them the high level of service they deserve.
We’re also committed to releasing the most innovative tools in the industry. Zibbet has released the ability to ‘rearrange the items in your shop’. A very popular feature AND an industry first! Our Premium Shops are also the most customizable out of all the popular handmade sites.
