    Steve, thanks for the article. Etsy increased the pricing structure last summer. Transaction fees are longer 3.5% per sold item but 5%. They are also charging the transaction fee on shipping, which is new. They continued the 20 cents per listing and 3.5% plus 25 cents for merchant fees of the total. The change, like EBay has made it more difficult for sellers to calculate transactions fees, especially if they include part of the transaction fee in their selling price as you will not know your potential transaction fee on the shipping until the item is sold. It’s steered me away from any international shipping through Etsy because shipping internationally is more expensive–so I will pay more overall in transaction fees than if the item sells to a US customer. It also makes it difficult to sell lower priced but heavier items, because again, the ratio of the overall transaction fees to the item price is greater than the other way around.

    Well, I was going through a website as I got to heard a lot from eBay sellers. This could be a perfect alternative of eBay in my research. TrueGether is the name of it. I hope you will look into it and let us know if it is bad or ok?
    Not sure of the results.
