Where to sell handmade online: Traffic rankings updated

I’ve updated my list of places to sell your handmade goods online using traffic numbers
from Compete.com to rank the available options. (Just in time for holiday shopping)

:-)

The top ten don’t move around much, and I’ve listed them below.  To view the entire list,
please visit this blog post for the most updated numbers
:  “Where to sell handmade
online, ranked by site traffic”

An M means millions and a k is thousands. (4M is 4,000,000 and 4k is 4,000.)

This list is sorted from most to least trafficked. The LOWER the Rank number the HIGHER
the number of visitors a site receives. LOWER numbers are BETTER.

Does more traffic mean more sales? Maybe, but don’t rely on a site’s traffic numbers as
your only criteria. Larger site traffic does not necessarily equate to more sales.

Do your homework: visit site forums, google for feedback, look at site traffic trends, read user
blogs, ask user opinions, and ask lots and lots of questions.

Note: Some of the sites listed allow vendors to sell both commercial AND handmade products. Also, sites that have moved more than 3 slots since the last review are highlighted in red text.

Where to sell handmade online: List updated

Updated March 2, 2011

I thought it would be interesting to create a list of sites that one could sell their handmade goods. I use Compete.com’s metrics to track traffic numbers over time for these online venues.

You’ll note columns for a site’s latest rank, as well as its previous rank and a column for actual site traffic.

An M means millions and a k is thousands. (4M is 4,000,000 and 4k is 4,000.) If a number is listed without either an M or a k, you can assume this is the actual number of visitors per month.

I’ve sorted the sites in this list from most to least trafficked.  You can click on each site name to visit that site directly.

The LOWER the rank number the HIGHER the number of visitors a site receives. LOWER numbers are BETTER.

Does more traffic mean more sales? Maybe, but it’s not a given that larger traffic numbers equate to larger sales revenues for a site’s member sellers. Do your homework: visit site forums, Google for feedback and user opinions, ask questions.

Note: Some of the sites listed allow vendors to sell commercial AND handmade products. Also, sites that have moved more than 3 slots since the last review are highlighted in red text.

Looking for an etsy competitor? Seeking another venue to sell you handmade items? Asking what other sites are out there to list your handmade artisan work? This list may help.

What sites did I miss? What do you think of the sites you use? Please share your experiences.

Where to sell handmade: Updated

I’ve updated my list of sites to sell your handmade art, crafts, etc.  You can find the entire updated list here:   Where to Sell Handmade Online

I use Compete.com to rank site traffic.

You should note that an M means millions and a k is thousands of visitors per month. So 4M is 4,000,000 and 4k is 4,000. If a number is listed without either an M or a k afterwards, you can assume this is the actual number of visitors per month in hundreds.

Note: Some of the sites listed below allow vendors to sell handmade as well as commercial products.  For instance, buyers will find handmade as well as retail products on ebay.

Here are the top ten for November.
